Nice food, location and service. Great for people watching by the canal. Local Milanese dishes are a treat. Quite pricey, though.

To pay 20 E for a schnitzel milanesi style with nothing more than a few patatoes as a sidedish is too much. Surrounded by the happy hour crowd who pays 10 E for a drink and unlimited fast food. This suppose to be the new and upcoming area. As many other things in this city the food allongside the canal... More

Dropped in on a whim and it was well worth it! The duck and ravioli are so good and well worth it. Nice atmosphere for you to relax and enjoy....

Horrible - don't go there! We stopped by for a cup of tea. Since they served us a kettle and a selection of tea bags I used two. Afterwards they charged us by the number of tea bags. So far I never ever payed 9€ for three bags of Lipton tea.

Like the last contributor, we cannot understand why this restaurant appears to have received poor reviews from Italian speakers. In fact, the second time we visited the locals were queuing for tables. Bellariva is by the canal and a great place for people watching. Whilst not an extensive menu there is sufficient choice and the food is first class. There... More

No... really, I don't speak Italian so I can't tell what the bad reviews are about. We had a very nice meal, outdoors in a very nice spot. My wife had a beautiful caprese salad with what she said was great mozzarella. I had argentine style beef and vegetables which was good. Could have used a bit more beef but... More

Staying in Navigli

Neighborhood Profile
The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande. The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.
