Very enjoyable and much preferred to our hotel restaurant. We arrived around 7 and were the only people there, and be warned that it is not as small as it first seems as there is a larger room at the back, fairly soon it was filled with locals having a good meal in a convivial atmosphere.

I loved everything from the antipasta to the pasta it all flowed wonderfully. They have a great wine selection and the atmosphere is inviting and cozy. I felt right at home in such a faraway land. Real Italian food is so much better than what we get in the states and this place is a fine example.

All I can say is that we loved it so much, we went back three times during our stay in the Milan area. The food was always fresh. I loved the daily rotating menu options and having a quick expresso or for those like me not up to the Italian normal standard a cappuccino after lunch. I'd definitely recommend visiting... More

This is an average place. Not the best one of emilian kitchen. Gnocco fritto was too oily. Tigella was chewy. I would expect something better. Red wine was cold. Tris di primi was okay. So mostly it depends on what you pick

I have been for lunch and I enjoyed the menu of 10 euro with pasta (I recommend farfalle with shrimps) meat (nice turkey but with vegetables and French fries) and house wine.

The pasta is really delicious; pay attention to the degustation menus - might be too much for one person. I've been several times for dinner, it was almost full each time. The main waitress seems to be stressed during the 'rush hours', but she's quite nice. The house wine, both white and red, are slightly 'frizzante'.

The Trattoria della Nonna Emilia offers a good selection of cured meats and cold cuts to be accompanied with the "gnocco fritto" a must to try. I've been there few times and all the first courses I have tried are delicious. I've never been able to order the main course. I promise to skip the starter next time. The staf... More

Like I said, I like to interact with restaurant folks. In this case it was the owner. He took time to explain the menu to us, to the point that he brought us samples. We had a good dinner here and some fun too. If you like to sit quietly it's good for that also. The pork tenderloin Milanese and... More

Once you're in the front of the restaurant, you don't have such a good feeling as the entrance is not that nicely decorated. But after you enter, you feel like home. The restaurant is nicely decorated, staff is polite. We also found English menus, which were really useful. Food was delicious!
