My Italian friend of many years recommended this restaurant. It was good, not great. The service was okay, not great either. There were a lot of people dining there on a Monday night, so I suppose it’s quite popular with the locals. The restaurant is...More

Good restaurant for Lombardy food with a great menu and wine. Service seems too stressed and forgot about us serval times. Things took too long time to arrive the table. Located in a fine area for an evening drink or partying.

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
