First, why should you trust this review: We have been to cocktail bars all over the world, covering many of the world's top 50. We have high standards. We've visited Rita after visiting two highly praised Milan bars who were mediocre at best. The cocktails...at Rita are extremely reasonably priced, even cheap, but the level of expertise is outstanding. The cocktails are extremely tasty, vary greatly in flavors (there's something here for everyone), and are very boozy, unlike most other bars in Milan. Moreover, the aperitivo is VERY tasty and generous, on a whole other level than other Milan bars. However, the best part is the great service. Ravi, in particular, is outstanding - he helped us choose cocktails that were just right for each part of the evening. His level of professionalism is truly exceptional. Ask for him specifically when you visit, you won't regret. STRONGLY RECOMMENDED! We would have given 10 stars if we could.More

Went to this place with a friend for an aperitivo. We sat at the bar and had two tonic for 10 euros as the bartender definitely forgot to pour the Hendricks of which we could hardly catch the flavor. Now I don’t mind paying an...extra for having Hendricks instead of a cheaper gin but the bartender did not give us the option. Too bad.More

We tried 6 different coctail, each of them was more delicious than the other. Staff was very helpful. they served food again and again with every couple of coctails, especially anchovy was the best. The environment was very elegant, we spent marvellous evening

Great cocktail list, brilliant twists on classics and the aperitifs are amazing. Music is alright too. If you want a chilled out drink this is the place!

bartenders and waiters are more likely to harass women than to offer a good service to all customers.

We arrived just after opened and all the tables inside were booked! However there were tables in the glass structure at the front and seats at the bar. WIthin half an hour, the place was rammed, and it was Sunday! The staff are cheery and...helpful, the atmosphere was buzzing, the cocktails amazing and the tray of nibbles just perfect! We decided to have a burger rather than move on to a restaurant. Good call! 250g juicy beef in a brioche bun. Absolutely hit the spot!More

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...standards for drinks mixology, with the surprise of tasty food served during aperitivo time. Well done.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...were no spots left at the bar, so I recommend a reservation if going on the weekend after 7PM. The drink menu is amazing!! So many unique cocktails to chose from. Our bartender was a delight, he even called various restaurants to try and get us a table. In retrospect, should've just ordered food and stayed there the rest of the eveningMore
