We ate here for lunch on a day trip to Milan from Lake Garda. Excellent service for a family and good advice on what to try. Food was good. Great location. Bathroom facilities excellent.

Good place indeed but over priced. We ordered pasta and pizza. The pasta was so-so and pizza is ... you know not the price. I had very very nice pizza at Verona with lower price.

We decided to having lunch here just simply because jay Chou have been there before and we think there must be some standard and good service. But I'm so disappointed with the service and the food. 1- We don't feel being welcome. We are not sure is there any racists or because we are Asia people .The way they talked... More

After walking round the vast shopping streets of Milan, myself and my partner were happy to find this lovely restaurant. I really enjoyed the food here and the service was friendly and at times quite humorous. Quick service with a friendly smile. Definitely recommended. I had the seafood risotto and my partner had a good steak.

Over rated. Squid ink rice not the real deal. Over priced. Long waits for service . Positive there are better places in Milan for the price.

Came here for lunch based on good reviews and because we were in the area. We had 3 different pasta dishes and one pizza. Food was ok, but nothing to write home about. The service was very friendly but slow. Price was unreasonably high. Would pass by. Plenty of other options around

My daughter and I went here because I am gluten and dairy free. We had an amazing experience. The service was exemplary. They brought me out gluten free rolls and offered me a choice of pastas. They were so great that we ate there twice. For lunch I had the linguini with clams and my daughter had what she termed... More

Wow what a great send off! We had a delicious meal and received the best service of our entire trip which is a huge compliment. The restaurant ran like a well run machine and we watched them accommodate groups of all different sizes very quickly. Do not let negative reviews impact your decision to go to this restaurant.

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighborhood Profile
Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
