EVERYTHING is Gluten Free here and the food is outstanding! A must visit for celiacs, gluten intolerant and anyone else!

Very happy we stumbled across this place - the staff were so nice and provided recommendations on the wine to accompany our main meals. A smaller restaurant so we were definitely lucky to get a table. Highly recommend if you’re looking for a lunch spot...- next time I’ll try the desserts!More

Lovely traditional cafe/bistro near Sforza Castle and Cardrona Station. Delicious crepe with Gorgonzola filling and a glass of wine to go with it. Good service. Many local diners which is generally a good sign.

We were standing right outside this place and tripadvisor was recommending somewhere 15 minutes’ walk away- I have no idea why it’s not higher up the rankings. The place is small, nicely decorated. There is no kids’ menu, prices are a little higher than most,...portions (apart from burger) are a little on the small side, but the food and wine is absolutely delicious, I’d go back again. We found the staff friendly and prompt.More

... although I'm not complaining. It had been a long morning and we were in need of food as we headed to another part of the city. First impression is of a cosy café, but it is just a small restaurant (maybe there is a...first floor but I don't know). Greeting was warm and friendly, I asked for a glass of a nice white wine, not sweet ("we don't do sweet white wines"). I ordered Risotto with porcini mushroom (primi?), my wife ordered the Lasangne (secondi). We were both delighted (excited even) with the food and the wine ... so I had a second glass. Tea and coffee followed Splendid. Getting the bill was somewhat strange, although it was detailed on the screen, but I was not given a copy. Still, no hesitation in recommending Bistrò.More

We were looking for an early dinner and happy to find out, that they already opened the kitchen at 6pm. The service was very friendly and food was good, especially the desserts where delicious. Thank you “añonuevo” for your friendly attention.

We had an evening meal here and were disappointed. A reasonable menu but my wife's dish was cold and had to be reheated. The food was good but we have eaten a lot better. Service was excellent.

Excellent food and service! We had a late dinner here during our vacation in Milan. There was some kind of a celebration of a local group of people ongoing.

We found this lovely restaurant when searching for a place that served gluten free food since my daughter has Celiac Disease. We started with the empanadas which were served over a bed of lettuce with avocado sauce and peppers. They were amazing! We also had...the caprese salad and the tomatos were perfectly ripe and the cheese was fresh. The pesto gnocchi, club sandwich and the veal cutlet were also wonderful! The servers who worked there were all friendly and very pleasant! I highly recommend this cozy little restaurant!More
