“Good quality food at a reasonable price in a lively studenty atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

CIU's offers an all-you-can-eat buffet, inclusive of one drink at a very good price.
The food is of high quality and is very fresh. There is an abundance of choice to suit all palates. As the platters of food empty, the staff replace these with fresh dishes.
Dessert is also included.
There is loud music in the background but not so loud as to prevent conversation.
The crowd there seems to be a mix of students and local hipsters, there for some food and gossip.

“Always crowded.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

If you just want to eat a lot of food with a variety of choices, even if you can't talk with your friends because of the noise, so, this is the right place. Otherwise, avoid it.

“Best Aperitivo in Milan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

When we came to Ciu's we didn't know what to expect. Aperitivo started at 6 pm, we were there after 7 pm, there were not much people. All came about 8 pm. Waiter offered 3 kinds of Aperitivo with small, normal, or extra large drink/wine or beer for 9-11Euro. We had wide variety of dishes. Waiters were systematicaly adding new, fresh and hot ones! It was really great experience, We expected exactly something like that! Restaurant is placed near Corso Buenos Aires, and Loreto metro station, so it's really easy to get there.

“Best aperitivo in Milan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

We experienced Ciu's aperitivo on our first night in Milan. We didn't know what to expect but when we arrived, even though it was late there was still tons of good food and drinks. It's a very cosy place and the price is very affordable. We paid only € 9,00 for the first drink and all you can eat from the best aperitivo we've ever been.

“Nice hangout till 25 years old”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

This is a nice hang out place and if you are really hungry and with 10 eur u want to eat again and again.
The price has gone up within three years. Before it was 7 eur and now it's reached to 10 eur and nothing has changed. You have one drink included with buffet.
Considering other happy hour ahead on the street this place is really good as far as buffet is considered. If you are a non veg you have many options to eat but if you are veg/halal eater this buffet is bit less for u.
The place is always crowded by young people and loud music especially on the weekends I would recommend you to book in advance.
