“Truly awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

We found ourselves here as my partner is a pescatarian and Milano is hopelessly ill-equipped for those who do not eat pork in any of the many fashions the Italians have contrived. The food here was so bad that it was barely edible. We ate very little of our starters and were then quizzed by the owner as to why we hadn't eaten it. Wishing to save ourselves the same ordeal after the inedible main course, we wrapped the food in napkins and disposed of it in the toilet. We were the only two diners in the restaurant for the duration of the meal and I am glad no-one else suffered this restaurant that night. Having eaten some really atrocious meals in my life (having grown up in the U.K. and traveled extensively in Europe, Africa and Asia), I can safely say that this ranks in the top five. The food isn't even reasonably priced. The only saving grace (and it is scant consolation) is that the waitress was sweet, diligent and willing. I strongly recommend avoiding this place.

“delusione”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

personale gentile e disponibile
cibo deludente: zuppa di pesce salata oltre misura, baccalà con patate riscaldato e in porzione scarsa (la metà di quanto servito al tavolo vicino)
prezzo superiore alla qualità: 100 euro per 2 adulti e una bambina per un piatto a testa e 2 dessert + acqua e 2 calici vino

non consigliabile
peccato, l'idea è bella ma mal realizzata

“Amazing welcome and lovely food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2011

This restaurant is in a quiet area of Milan but one worth visiting. When we visited we were the only people in there. Maybe we were early as it filled up later but it should have been packed.

The menu while not extensive had enough of a range to suit most people. For non-Italian speaker there isn't an English version but the staff try their best to help where they can. Speaking of the staff, I've never had a warmer welcome.

The food was lovely. I'm no food critic but I couldn't fault it and my fish was gorgeous.
