We were in Milan on a Monday night when many restaurants are closed. Our research revealed that Ai Gardini Paprika & Cannella was both open and just a few blocks away from our hotel. We arrive around 8pm and were immediately seated. Our waiter was quite the showman; he was the Milano version of the budding NYC actor who waits... More

A good variety menue makes it difficult to choose. Excellent kitchen and friendly service make dining at Al Giardini a memorable experience. Will surely come again when in Milan.

Sincerely, one of my best experience in food! Great food, great ambiance, great wine. The "Bisteca Fiorentina" is Magic! The "Risoto Milanes" is amazing.

Over 30 of us booked for dinner and the restaurant produced platters of meat, cheese and tomato salad followed by steak, asparagus risotto, grilled vegetables and potato crisps. All were delicious with the steak and risotto particularly good Would definitely pay a return visit

The meal started with homemade warm breads that were beyond divine. We had a unique artichoke salad followed by seafood that was simple but delicious. My only regret as we left was that I had not had dessert as the dessert table was dream worthy. I will definitely return if my travels bring me back to Milan.

I had a chicken salad which was fantastic, the best I've had in milan costing about 10 euro. Because it wasn't too expensive I treated myself to an open apple pie as well for about... More

This is a great restaurant with a large menu to choose from. The food was great and I had the best spaghetti carbonara I've ever had there! Lots of options and lots of pizzas to choose from too, spoilt for choice. Desserts are lovely too. The waiters were friendly and it had a real family atmosphere. The decor was lovely... More

The service was prompt and pleasant. There is a wide menu, (we thoroughly enjoyed the antipasto, the meat courses were good but sadly the truffle ice cream was not to my... More

Reasonable priced dishes for launch, excellent service and the pizzas are super! Ask the waiters for the day dishes they are super polite and will recommend honestly, I love their "Paprika & Cannella" pizza as well Pasta with seafood.
