OK so the food was delicious (pasta starter, veal main) but if you have time it's worth heading elsewhere. We sat outside and unfortunately our seats were right above some vents from the canals / subway underneath so we could see garbage bags etc all underground as we were sat on the grates. This place was expensive so for tourists... More

Don't be mislead by the appearance of the outside tables, mainly occupied by tourists and fashionistas drinking cappuccino after a full lunch (a real insult to Italian food manners), the real milanese eat inside where the atmosphere is totally different, that of a first class restaurant. The service is accurate, the quality of the food is good and fresh ingredients... More

We spent one month in Italy and it was the worse culinar experience we had ever ! The food was disgusting, the service very bad, and the bill so expensive with crazy service charges. This restaurant is really a shame. It is indeed a turist trap which is, the only good point, well situated. It was recommended by the Michelin... More

The restaurant offers inside and out seating. The wait staff is professional and prompt. They do not "overwait the table"; therefore, you do not get the impression you are being rushed to complete the meal. They have English/ Italian speaking waiters which was very helpful. The wines are delicious. The calamari was the best that our group had eaten anywhere.... More

This is without doubt the most expensive restraint I've visited for lunch, I ordered spaghetti carbonara and a latte and my husband got a calzone and small beer and we were charges 52 euros. I've eaten in lots of Italian restaurants for much less for the same meal and unfortunately this one wasn't anything special. The staff were mixed some... More

I've lived in Milan for 23 years and always say it's hard to eat badly in this city. However, thanks to the Charleston, I can now tell you about my worst ever eating experience. I went there yesterday lunchtime - beautiful sunny day, lovely piazza, table in the shade - perfect! But it really wasn't. The waiter wasn't even slightly... More

We have been coming here annually for the last 6 years and love it. Fine al fresco dining close to the Duomo and next to the Ferrari shop! Service and food lovely, possibly a bit pricey but you pay for what you get.
