Nice place by the channel in the Navigli area. Food (mainly sandwiches) and beer ok. Nothing special though! Just ordinary... The service instead was pretty good, thanks to the waitress that served our table. Saúde!

Arrived early for our 19:00 dinner reservation and had an hour to kill. Began to look for a place to have a nice spritz and noticed this place had a lot of people out front drinking beer and wine. Decided to join and was lucky to grab two tables. The place filled up quickly and I could see why--soon after... More

We had the best aperitif experience at Banco. The staff were amazing, the cocktails made to perfection, and bar snacks perfect and generous. Highly recommend this bar along the canals.

I've never seen cocktails made with so much genuine love and attention. Happy hour 6 -9pm, great apero and fantastic atmosphere. We're back for the second night in a row. I couldn't decide what to drink i wanted last night and after discussing what I'd normally order, I've now discovered my favourite cocktail. Perfect evening!

We've come across this bar on our search for a laid back place near the canal. It's quite small, but friendly, with helpful staff. We've only had a few glasses of wine (at reasonable price) and they came with four different snacks. Next time in Milan, I will sure be returning to this bar.

The cocktails are really good and different from the usuals. we only paid 12€ for tow drinks. It is served with a plate of food (olives, chorizo, bread with tomato and cheese, potatoes chips...).

This was one of my favourite bars on a recent visit to Milan. Relaxed atmosphere with quality service and a good buffet happy hour.

We stayed in Navigli for while so we just kept going back as we found nowhere else around that was so consistently good - we didn't get a cocktail, sandwich or snack that was just ok, everything was good and the staff were so friendly. They view out over the canal and the Navigli atmosphere just make it perfect. It... More

Staying in Navigli

Neighborhood Profile
Navigli
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.
