Good and fresh ingredients could deserve a better cooking but, on the whole, we had a good lunch. Granseola And squid kebab: the second one very good.

Our hotel recommended Giacomo Bistrot and we are very glad they did. The tiny restaurant is gorgeous. Cosy, quaint and full of ambiance we really felt like we were in Italy. Our drinks we're perfect and food was exceptional. It was probably the best meal we had in Milan and I will definitely be back. The cost was high but... More

Beautifully decorated (a bit too dark for a family dinner, but would definitely go great for a romantic date) place with very, very attentive staff. Food was good, but somehow not totally worth the (lot!!!) of money paid: a bit too posh and complicated, suitable for the atmosphere perhaps. We could return as a couple, for some special occasion, but... More

Which is why we came. The food was amazing - but it'd want to be. I had the veal for €24. The service was very attentive. The restaurant was quite comfortable. Be aware that they have a €5 cover charge - quite steep even by Milan standards.

We loved this place! My husband said the martini was the best he has ever had! We sat in the library which had a great atmosphere. There is a wonderful wine list of items under E50, and we ordered a terrific Nebbiolo. We started with complimentary hors d'oeuvres (tempura, arancini), and then had some remarkable appetizers: 1/2 order of cacio... More

Great food; a modern interpretation of Italian cuisine wrapped in a traditional setting. Service was great, food was memorable as was the bill. But I would definitely come back. Excellent place. Just come early, around 20.00 for instance, so you have the staff's undivided attention.

Best pasta I've had on my 11 day, 4 city visit to Italy. Recommended by the concierge at my nearby hotel. Very quaint and classy ambiance. Good service with English speaking waiters...had a light lunch consisting of their great bread with EVOO and a bowl of their spaghetti Pomodoro...you could tell the pasta was fresh and made from scratch and...

Good for lunch, dinner or aperitivo! Service is spotless and food is superb. A really creative menu with plenty of different food choices. The area is rather quiet and residential, but many new things are coming up. Make sure you also check the Tabaccheria just across the road from the Bistro.

Giacomo Bistrot is a mix of Italian and French culture. It is decorated as a French Bistrot and serves Italian food. Ambience is sophisticated. Staff is friendly. Reservation is a must.

Giacomo Bistrot remind me an Italian and French restaurant. Very nice place with impressive decoration and warm rooms, especially the library. Food is excellent in taste and quantity. Vine list great as well. Service very professional and friendly. Quite expensive but in line with Milan area.

Thank Gianpaolo B
