“Very very tasty...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014 via mobile

From the very beginning I knew this was going to be a memorable experience.
Very friendly and welcoming staff, who explained the menu and how things would proceed.
Anti pasta selection was varied and catered for all tastes.
Outstanding selection of well presented cooked meats, from sausages through chicken all the way to fine cuts of prime steak.
A varied and reasonably priced wine menu topped of an excellent evening and superb meal?

“When my baby smiles at me I got to Rio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

Just a perfect, relaxed venue with a buffet starter that has something of everything all done a little different followed by the meats. Skewered, grilled and carved at the table covering 10 styles of meat!! Delicious, fun and true value at 22 Euro per person and drinks very well priced.Great friendly service.
Eat, relax and enjoy and I'm sure the bigger the group the better.
You will not be disappointed here.

“DELICIOUS! Not for the vegetarian!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

Really friendly welcome with a good explanation of how the Brazilian barbeque experience works. Our waiter was very patient as we stumbled along with our basic Italian despite speaking fluent English!
The starter was a wide choice of cold & hot salads followed by table service of the various meats.The pace was just right - not hurried and we were did not feel we had to wait for the next selection of meat.
The wine selection was comprehensive and the wine we chose was superb.
Really good value

“Brazilin Rodizio Milanese Style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

Can't argue with the proximity to our Hotel - Sanpi (right next door.)

Friendly staff, very good selection of starters on the buffet and the constant supply of variosu meat cuts all carved off the spit at the table was great.

Well recommended

“Fantastic Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

We found this restaurant through pure luck as it was next to the hotel we were staying at (Hotel Sanpi) and i'm so glad we did!

Special offer on at the time which included a set menu of a buffet starter which was ok but then the main meal was Meat, and lots of it!

Staff brought sides out to us (chips etc) and then brought out so many different types of meat, carved it there in front of us at the table and just brought back more and more! As per a previous review mentions, this is a great place for meat lovers.

45 Euros for the amount of food we got, including a bottle of wine and bottles of water was an absolute bargain!

The staff didn't speak much English but still tried their best to make us welcome. There seemed to be a lot of locals eating here which i always find reassuring (it's not just a tourist trap)

Great, great place. If we ever visit Milan again i will definitely revisit this place.
