Best food we had in Milan, the host was very friendly and there is an English translation of the menu available. We felt bad we had had a huge lunch and couldn't try all the courses here. Wine list is very affordable.

We were in a big party for an office dinner during the week. We started with shared appetizers, with good ham, lardon and local pickles, then everyone ordered to their choice. Dishes were Ok, but I was expecting something better. Prices are reasonable

Although Bicocca is a peripheral district, many
visitors will find it appealing. The district is
enveloped by the immense Parco Nord (North Park), one
of the largest parks in Europe. Inside is the theater
Arcimboldi, one of the most important contemporary
theaters where concerts and shows are organized. In
the same area, there is the University of Milan
Bicocca, whose distinct architecture rivals a movie
