My colleague, who lived in Milan for a while, recommend this restaurant. It was busy but we booked online. The welcome was generous; there was a warm atmosphere. It was a Saturday night at the naviglia (Milanese canals). We chose a Valletino red wine with...More

Very, very touristic. They had one waiter for an entire upstairs so service took forever. It wasn't the waiter's fault he was rushing around doing his best but no one person could handle that amount of tables effectively. Food was totally unremarkable. We ordered one...More

Good food, very accommodating for gluten and dairy free dietary restrictions. We booked ahead about a week out but they were already booked up for outside tables. Try to plan ahead so you can sit out beside the canal

We were disappointed with our food. The pasta with pancetta (bacon) and zucchini had a lot of pancetta but nearly no zucchini and was very greasy (as to be expected). The osso buco with risotto milan was very bland. Don't know if it is supposed...More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant - we had to ask because so many were closed for summer. The food and wine were delicious. But it was pretty expensive so 4 stars instead of 5.

The restaurant is located near a canal in Milan, which is a nice spot to spend some hours. The restaurant's interior was nice and romantic, perfect for a date. We enjoyed vegetable risotto with duck and tagliolini with red tuna, which were both excellent dishes....More

Definitely a great location if you want to eat in a restaurant along the canal banks, but this comes with a few disadvantages unfortunately. Street sellers are constantly bugging diners outside with books, roses, bracelets etc & it really detracts from the setting sadly. It...More

This is a lovely little restaurant beside the canal. The waiters were very friendly and offered their recommendations when asked. The food was delicious, the best we had in Milan! And we were not rushed out as we were in other places. Would definitely recommend...More

The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient
days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar
to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the
Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are
two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande.
The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk
with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes
in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns

This restaurant is among the most famous in Milan for the classic Milanese cuisine (Meneghina), but I am sure that if you speak in good time with the Maitre you will satisfy your request
