“True authentic Milanese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013 via mobile

I was advised to this restaurant by a business friend who is from Milan. I went with my wife, the restaurant is in a small hidden street, my wife was a bit scared in the beginning cause of the street, but as soon as we entered the restaurant, we loved the place. The old wooden ceilings, old chairs, everything, everything was amazing and pure old Italian.. They offered fried meet balls as a starter and a bread basket, then we ordered 2 caprese salads then we went for the mushroom Milanese risotto and the ricotta and spinach ravioli with walnut sauce, and by far were the best I ve ever had in milan. We then had the panacotta tart and white chocolate mousse which were even better so we ordered one more white mousse.

The restaurant was amazing, the food was full of flavors and above all it was not a touristic place and the staff were super friendly. Will definitely go there again

“One for the Milano Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

We decided to go to Milano for the night to shop and experience a great local style dinner. After having a dreadful lunch experience in the centre of the shopping district we decided to check TripAdvisor before selecting a restaurant for dinner. We chose Rastaurante Da Berti because it was close to our hotel and had good reviews. When we arrived we were the only diners at the restaurant which seemed a little strange considerring it was Friday night. The waiter explained that the restaurant is in a banking area of MIlan and is very busy through the days and week day evenings however on the weekend it can be quiet. The feel inside the restaurant is very welcoming and local. Our waiter, Velario, was outstanding and provided a prefessional and warm level of service. We decided to share our entres and rather than have us dish it up Valerio brought over a serving table and shared the entres for us, great! Our mains were lovely and while i would say the presentation was not fine dining the flavour of the dishes was traditional, hearty, and had that special warmth well cooked Italian food can have. Our standout dishes for the evening were the handmade ravioli stuffed with fresh artichokes, the pastachio cream and apple struddel on the desert trolley. As there werent many diners in the restaurant when we finnished the waiter took us to the wine cellars to view the 160 year old collection of Vino .... the perfect end to our Milano experience.

“Pure taste of Milan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

I was in Town for business and got the place recommended.
The food is absolutely Milanese, the decor and staff also and for a random wednesday evening it got quickly full of locals and, even better, usual customers.
The dishes may not look fancy and elaborated but they taste just like you'd wish them too.
Try the Nervetti in the starters (buffet as well).
The Risotto con Ossobuco will just remain in your memories.

“A hidden gem off the beaten path!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Our hotel recommended this restaurant as being nearby. We walked by the "street" twice looking for it! It is at the end of a tiny street/alley. This restaurant has been in this location for over 160 years and it's no surprise why!
The atmosphere is authentic Italian and the service is impeccable.The food was delicious as were the wines. I ordered a white table wine, and the waiter poured and left the bottle ( with at least another glassful) and only charged for the one glass.
There were a few tourists eating, but most of the clientele were locals- always a good sign. After dinner, the waiter took us down to see the wine cellar- quite extensive.
All in all an wonderful meal in an authentic Italian restaurant.

“That's a good one!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

It's a good restaurant with good food and service. They serve several regional dishes and they have a nice winelist. It's not cheap but it worth it.
