Our Italian friends are regulars at this restaurant and they told us that it would be "the best pasta we had ever eaten". In fact I had the gnocchi - which was pretty amazing - but I also stole a little bit of the pasta...More

This dinner was a great experience! Don’t expect a great interior or fancy decoration. This place isn’t about that bit about genuine Italian food. The owner is a “signora” and a real power house: she cooks all dishes, five of them, serves, clears tables and...More

Dining here was an unusual and fun experience. No English is spoken by the hosts; almost all visitors spoke Italian. There are no menus; before each course, you are given a verbal choice of two-three dishes (different sauces may increase the variety to five-six); orders...More

Not the typical restaurant where I would go, my friends booked it and I was glad to discover this authentic gem. The place is simple, not posh, not fancy. The lady who welcomes the clients speaks the authentic and almost lost Milanese dialect of the...More

This trattoria was recommended by our Airbnb host and we couldn't have been happier. If you want traditional Milanese cooking in a home style atmosphere filled with locals and lovely house red wine, this is the place for you. The trattoria is run and operated...More
