This restaurant was a disappointment to us, and we really don't understand the good reviews at TA. You can get so much better food in Italy, with much more love prepared, this was the worst restaurant in our 5 day stay in Milan. The restaurant is indeed cozy, we were there on Saturday evening. Every table has different tableware and different glasses, which adds to the atmosphere. But the food is not so good. Maybe we should have tried the pizza! The complimentary bread was dry and hard. We ate the Salade Caprese, but the tomatoes were tasteless and hard. For main course we had the veal cutlet and the entrecôte. The portions were large, a whole plate full with meat, and maybe that's the reason for good reviews. But it didn't look and taste appetizing. Although the entrecôte -not medium done as ordered, but rather raw- was moderate. The veal cutlet however was tasteless and dry, and it needed a lot of lemon juice to get it swallowed. We noticed that the two waiters were hard working but they were not attentive, and mainly in a hurry. No room for small talk. We ate half the main course and left within 45 minutes without coffee and desert. I don't think they cared because the waiters were busy with a large group that walked in. Not so nice place to spend a Saturday evening to wine and dine. Although not expensive, to much money for this quality. But maybe it's good if you want to have a very fast dinner with pizza.
