Here you are in a typical bistrot, in the centre of Milan! You could say it reminds you of Paris as well. It's noisy, preferred by both young and "mature" generations, with a trendy bar that serves interesting cocktails and a posh "salle a manger", somehow imitating an old library. If you are not a regular, you will probably be... More

Recommended by someone we met and didn't disappoint. I had lamb loin two ways with figs and puree. My husband had the yellowtail fish and rice. We were both extremely happy and highly recommend.

Beautiful restaurant full of Italian families, very local, very classy, very familiar. They played amazingly great music like PinkFloyd, George Michael and Toto in a setting that was already amazing. The food is superb, the service even more. My second favorite restaurant in the entire world.

One ridiculous starter with ham and parmisan and two plates of fish (octopus and black cod), two cakes for only 125 euros in 2. Quality just OK but nothing special . In Milan you can eat much better with a better service without waiters pushing you out as they want to free the tables. No thanks, never more

This sort of restaurant is usually our of mine and my boyfriend's budget but we thought the photographs of the restaurant and food were gorgeous and we decided to treat ourselves. It really is a treat - we each shared a starter and had a bowl of fresh pasta each from the Primi section of the menu. Just from this... More

Personnel is very polite and nice, always ready to help with anything and advice dish based on your taste. It's very classy inside, women can put their evening dress. At the end we have received compliment... More

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
