When I go to Milan, there is always 1 night of meat [Restaurant La Cava] & 1 night of fish. This is the best fish restaurant visited to date. Had a sea bass simply cooked in the oven with olive oil & herbs. Superb. Staff friendly & extremely helpful.

This is my third visit to this Osteria, and without a doubt it is now my favorite ristorante in Milano. My waiter Massimo's was wonderful. I let him order for me, the same as last summer on my second visit. This time I had an antipasto of octopus with carcioffi (artichokes) and baby octopus with polenta to start. It was... More

If you like elegant places with friendly atmosphere and you are a lover of fish and seafood then you should definitely not miss this place. Most dishes are simple but offer great combination of tastes. I have never tasted so good fish and seafood in my life. Whenever I pass by Milan I can't resist to go there. It is... More

The restaurant is a little way out of the centre of Milan but it is well worth the taxi ride. We received a very warm welcome and were seated downstairs where the tables look onto a lush garden. The service was first class, it's a family run business and they certainly know how to make you feel welcome. With their... More

I thought there is only touristic restaurants in Milan since we had been staying at its central part. One day my Japanese friend living in Milan more than 10 years have told that Milan is famous for its fish market in Japan which is same equivalent of 'Tsukuji' in Tokyo. And he introduced me this restaurant is one of the... More

Milanese people think they have a deal: they get the best Mediterranean fresh fish in the country as they pay the highest price for it. Indeed, many fish restaurants in Milan serve quite good fish, indeed they charge as much as they can get away with for it , and indeed we have been happy to let them get away... More
