This restaurant is in the middle of Milano's Chinatown, and we came by it by chance. We had an amazing meal, the service was excellent and prices were reasonable. My favourite dishes were pasta with fresh fig sauce and the chocolate semifreddo served with hot coffee.

The location is a central location, in the new business district of Milano. It is located right in the middle of the "Chinese Town" so in the same zone you will fine a lot of chinese restaurants and deli markets. Once you enter the restaurant, the people that own it are very helpful and will give you right away a... More

I visited Ottimofiore first time almost 30 years ago, and returned again to have some basic, homecooked Italian food. And I was not dissapointed! The prices are very affordable, and the food is genuine - as well as the restaurant gueast that seem to primarily be regular, local return customers. We had the antipasti buffet for starters and 3 different... More

Visited as a solo diner and had a wonderful meal and experience. The setting is traditional with green and white tablecloths. Service was attentive and appropriate for a solo diner. The waiter spoke enough English to match my minimal Italian and we got by just fine. Menu is in Italian and English. Pasta and main course were both hearty and... More

I found this place through TA as I had intended to stay in Chinatown area. It did not materialize though, we stayed near Linate airport. But we drove there eventually. Restaurant was homely and the gentlemen serving us were very friendly. We ordered the swordfish carpaccio, two pasta, a salad that we requested for their recommendation, and the house red... More

The raw fish antipasti dish in itself is worth the trip! Definitely stands out... Not pretentious, awesome sicilian food!

From the narrow via Bramante you step into the Sicilian atmosphere of Ottimofiore. The menu is seasonal. Raw fish platter is always a good way to start. The pastas are freshly made. Main dishes with fish are simple, fresh. Desserts typically Sicilian. Ask for the chocolate-covered orange rind.

I've been to this restaurant many times, and I keep coming back for many reasons: the genuine atmosphere, the season related Sicilian dishes and the prices are just right for what you are getting. I definitely suggest this place to anyone - a group of friends (not to big group tough - since the place is small), couples and families.

A small traditional trattoria in Milan with excellent food. The environment might not say much but try the house wine and the sea food spaghetti and you'll consider it a night well spent!! A "must" visit in my opinion...me and my friends are definitely going back next time we visit Milan!!

Green & white check tablecloths, welcome you to this homely Sicilian restaurant, tucked away off a street in what has become Milan's Chinatown. A Milanese friend booked this restaurant and allowed us to catch up together after a gap of many years, with none of the modern scourge of "turning tables" in evidence. Everyone was installed for a good evening!... More
