“Sensational - exceeds NYT hype”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2011

This may have been the best meal we had in Europe over two weeks (and we had several terrific meals). We went here because it was featured in the New York Times' feature 36 Hours in Milan, and weren't disappointed.

The baby mozzarella to start was like eating a cloud. The pasta melted. The dessert was some kind of fruit cake that was light and creamy and perfect. The staff was terrific, and recommended an amazing bottle of wine for $20. I had the best digestif of my life here.

The only thing I didn't love was the veal milanesa, but everything else was so amazing I pretty much forget that part.

One of the few places in life that exceeds high expectations - go!

Un bel localino, un po' nascosto, in zona Colonne. Buoni e ben presentati i piatti, curati e originali quanto basta. Servizio gentile. Costo sui 35€ a persona senza vino.
