Osso Bucco is delicious!

I know this place is one of the restaurants to avoid. It's definitely for tourists and really expensive for okay food. BUT I ate at this place twice during my stay in Milan because of their Osso Bucco. I've tried Osso Bucco in orher restaurants but none compared to Charleston's. It's one to skip... read more

Low quality, highly expensive restaurant in the center of Milan. Poor service, average food and costly as a one star michelin restaurant. Incredibly 4 Euro per person of charge and service, not matched by smart or just even polite restaurant. at the end of the lunch, when i show directly my complaints, the answer was that if i like other...

I ordered two dish which are Margaretha Pizza and Beef Steak. The pizza was average in my opinion. It is more likely to a Pizza that you buy anywhere in Milan, nothing special. However the steak was very appetising. It was cook perfectly and it could be better with more seasoning. In total I spent 40EURO in total with water.... More

Not a very pleasant experience. I chose there because they have written free WIFI on door. Went there early at around 5pm, wanted to enjoy a long dinner with desert and realised they only provide free wifi for one hour. That's ok...but food is at best so-so, service quality is bad, and the worst part is that they charged me... More

I wasn't expecting warm or too personnel, so we were all very happy. The spinach with chilli... More

Had high expectations as it was my first night in Milan. Was drawn to this restaurant as it has kerb appeal! Waiter was rude felt like an outsider, not made welcome! Mixed salami was old with hard crusty edges, lack of presentation!!! Ordered four cheese pizza! The worst pizza I have ever tasted!!! Burnt and sloppy cheese, which tasted awful!... More

The worst behavior and food ever in Italy! So many restaurants with great food in Milan and we were so "lucky" to go to the worst! Not to mention the prices, for what they serve its not worth it.... Worst pizza and pasta ever I had in all my trips to Italy.
