Good for a short stop. Maybe the food was good? Drinks were fine. Nothing stand out so just 3/5 from us. Sorry. Inside looked promising. Maybe worth a punt.

It was a nice location so decided to have a set lunch for 14 euro, starter salad water and coffee all included, risotto, pasta and salad all very tasty.

For aperitivo Deseo is a very good option. They make a good cocktail and have a great selection of food available on the buffet. Although not the largest of selections the food is fairly high quality compared to others.

Food and drinks ok, in general good place for aperitivo, but not exactly my style: not enough choice and music a bit too loud. Personally I prefer more casual atmosphere.

I stumbled upon this place one sunny evening just in time for Aperitivo. They make a good Spritz and have a great buffet. The food is mainly "freezer" type food but there is a good selection and lots of salads and pasta too so it's a great option. I would say that if you're coming to Milan and want to... More

From 7pm to 10pm they serve different types of appetizer. There are a lot of good things, including desert.

I visit this bar & aperitivo frequently. The cocktails are always amazing and they have a huge selection of drinks. There is also a large selection of buffet food during aperitivo hours (pastas, meats, veggies, salads, cheeses, chocolate fondue for dessert, etc..). My favourite aperitivo in Milan!

I've tried lots of aperitivos all around the city, and this one is so far the best! The food is really good, and there's a large variety of drinks you can have. Great atmosphere to go with your friends!

I guess for tourists this is a little bit out of the centre and therefore less interesting. However, a taxi will get you there in ten minutes and personally, I think it's worth it. Besides, on the same strip, there are about ten other places if this isn't to your liking. As a rum-lover, I was right at home at... More

A very nice cosy place with a great location, right by the Arch de Peace. Visited this place with my friends on Friday evening. I must say, the music was great and does put you in a party mood! The only thing I wasn't happy about was - not enough international cocktails, however the barman was happy to make me... More
