This was an amazing restaurant. It was recommended to us by a waiter in a cafe and it did not disappoint. It is an Argentinian restaurant and as an Argentinian I can vouch that the meat I had here is excellent. I had the entraña cut and this is the one I get wherever I go. When a restaurant claims...

There are mixed reviews about this restaurant but there are things you need to be aware of. First, you're in Milan and I find that nobody is in a hurry. Second, you're in Milan and everyone eats late and at the same time. When we got to the restaurant for our reservation, the restaurant was empty. By the time we... More

A very nice house wine at a reasonable price. Helpful and attentive service. As for noise , just what I'd expect from a busy, vibrant restaurant on Saturday... More

Typical steak house with a decent service and offer but noise level is unbearable (echoing on plain walls and high ceiling). Our dinner party quickly turned into a nightmare and we all felt like eating in a railway station.

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.
