I stopped here by chance. Or maybe the terrific food aroma coming for inside. I highly recommend this place. Waiters are nice and friendly and food is awesome.

After passing by many many empty bars in Navigli, we found this gem and it was packed, which is always good sign. Yes, its touristy, as are most of the places along the canals in Navigli. But, the Aperativo buffet was full of choices, cheeses,...More

When in Milan, make it a point to visit the Navigli area! You will have tons of options for a Happy Hour buffet! But we were drawn to the Manhattan because of the crowd that had already gathered there. For 11€ you get the beautiful,...More

We are in our 50’s and did not feel out of place! But, if you are worried about it, I would suggest That you go earlier, and then you will be more likely to beat the younger (hipper) crowd!
