Location and contact

American Bar, but serious, if you want a Gin Tonic we'll do it, but once you taste our drinks you'll never can get enough. Do you like wine? We have a selection which changes periodically. And beer? We have it too, pilsner or bitter ale, only draft. If you're hungry our chef cooks special appetizer, different everyday. But if you are actually hungry, like when you say: "I'm starving", we have very special dishes, cooked with organic ingredients, so you can oversupply till midnight although you're veggy. You say "what kind of people could I meet?". Well man, here in Milan we are all a bit artists, creatives, designers, reporters, harp players.

Amazing cocktails, perfect place, warm hospitality. Just wonderful :) I tried four different cocktails; each one had unique taste. The bartender really knows what you need :)

I've been to Rita at least 10/12 years ago, the place was half the size it is today and it was said to be the best hidden bar of Milan. Now famous and doubled in size with cooking capabilities, it has maintained its very high...More

I don’t usually drink cocktail but when you look the bar tenders and the menu you cannot taste one of them! Simply amazing ! The local is very nice and it’s perfect for aperitif, after dinner or Sunday brunch.

This place was perfect - fantastic creative cocktails (so inventive!), fresh tasty aperitivo brought to the table, friendly fast service, great atmosphere. I would love to go back. Get there early as it gets filled up quickly. Also family-friendly.

We stumbled upon this place on google maps looking for a bar to stop by before figuring out dinner (it was our first night in Milan and had no dinner reservations). It was a Saturday and we arrived a little before 7PM, by 7:30PM there...More

We arrived early and got a table outside. If you have not booked you may struggle to get a table. Service was excellent, fast and overall very friendly. Huge range of cocktails served with aperitivo. Recommended for cocktails.

The cocktails are unique, staff is frendly and they make this place amazing. It opened in 18.30 last evening in 19 o'clock there were only a few free tables inside.

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
