“Wonderful food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel personnel. It fully lived up to expectations. A wide variety of local Italian food. Our server was great and really took care of us. Recommended dishes and wine. He really enhanced the dining experience. We had pasta, pizza and great seafood. Another authentic Italian restaurant.

“Took and chance and was pleased”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant is above average but I won't give it a very good. Having arrived late into Milan, we stayed close to the train station. This restaurant was close to the horrible UNA Metropole( see my review). Typical northern Specialties with pastas, pizza and seafood. The service by Nichalas was attentive and fun. Food was nothing special but filled the need at the time.

“Decent food, very rude manners. Avoid.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

We went to this restaurant because we got a "discount card" from the hotel. First of all, the waiter did not give us the menu of the day and I happened to notice it because another person was looking at it. When we received it it was with a very unpleasant face. The "menu del giorno" is a very good deal. At only 10 euro, you get 2 dishes and you can fill your plate at the salad bad. We ordered and we got another unpleasant face.

The food was actually good but the surprise came when I went to pay. I presented my "discount card" from the hotel and the Chinese lady just went into a rant that how did I pretend to get a discount over the great I had got. Now, I don't mind being told "no, sir the discount does not apply to this menu" but I did not deserve to get the rant about how I pretended a discount over this very low price and how she was supposed to make a buck if people asked for such discounts.

No matter how good the food is, this restaurant does not deserve a certificate of excellence.

“lovely dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

I visited this restaurant a couple of times Oct 23 to Oct 27, 2013. The menu is extensive enough to please anyone, the atmosphere is pleasant, the prices are reasonable and the food is fantastic. My server, Nicolas, made excellent menu suggestions and made me feel welcome. I recommend this restaurant to anyone travelling to Milan.

“Best cotoletta alla milanese...ever!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Some Italians might not like this...the Restaurant is Chinese owned and cooking Italian dishes, including 'milanese' dish and possibly the best 'cotoletta alla milanese' had in the last few years - so good I came back a second time in a week!

Located very close to Central Station, approx 10 minutes walk - try it!
