4,5/5 Mag Cafe is so popular because of their ambiance and well prepared cocktails. Especially Giappone was one of the best cocktail I’ve ever tried. The gin based cocktail but shiso leaves, Absinthe, Lime juice, Sage syrup and some Ginger beer inside also. We also...liked Negroni del Marinaio. Mezcal and Old Sailor Coffee added a nice taste, although it is a little different from Classic Negroni. The taste of the coffee could have been a little less dominant. You can visit the Navigli area to try these fine cocktails and feel the different ambience of Mag Cafe. €8 cocktails.More

May 19th, 2020 Finally the lockdown is over! First destination to celebrate the possibility of going back to a bar and grab a great cocktail? Obviously MAG! That's why I get into my car and reach Milan, the navigli area is beautiful even in this...bizarre phase. When I reach MAG, the organization is totally different from what it was before. Obviously social-distancing measures are active, and the generally crowded room now hosts only a few well separated tables... But it looks great as usual. Cocktails quality is unmodified, the availability of spirits and the preparation of staff is amazing as usual. I love that place... even in this strange moment, if you wanna a great cocktail in totally safe conditions, MAG is a perfect choice !More

I oils like to specify I’m a HUGE fan of Flavio Angiolillo. Very mice bar even if is small, but it’s perfect if you want to take care to all of your guests. Amazing drinks , the menu could be better but it’s ok ....The people was serving us was a bit cold, looks like almost at the end of the shift and the couldn’t wait to leave the place .... but it’s ok . I bought the book from Flavia’s , and when I asked if he could sign for me , Flavio even didn’t watch me or ask me a name or anything to make this moment for me a bit more special . This is the only “ black spot “ of the night . From him I expect something better, if you including all the courses I made with him etc etc etcMore

This is a not so little gem of a place that seems a long way from the center of Milan but is worth the trip. It’s very close the the very trendy canal region of Navagli. Huge space which was a former sawmill. Great candelabras,...long shared tables and a dramatic place for a fun group dinner or with couples. The food was excellent. Wine was great value....I had to ask if it was by the glass or bottle!More

The cafe is next to the Navigli grande canal and it is really nice to sit outside and watch people passing by. Inside it is very interesting to look at all the decorations. We have been there late afternoon on a sunny Sunday and the...service was very friendly and quick. We could stay without beeing pushed or forced to order another drink.More

Lovely bar adjacent to the canal in Navligi opposite a church which was holding a wedding whilst we were there. Cocktails were great and reasonably priced. Found the service really friendly and not pushy at all.

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
