Nice place but service incredibly slow. The location is trendy and on Saturday evening location was packed. I would say they need more personnel to cover the area.

The place is very nice and "on trend" but they have no respect for the customer, I went to have brunch with some friends and after 2 hours they delivered our food! I ask the waitress what was the problem and she answer that waiting...More

Business trip and tour of site. Interesting visit round a set of very diverse buildings, don't think you'll see any clothes as this site is all about art and the spaces. Cafe is superb value and food is great too..very retro.

Friendly staff, beautiful location, ideal for a big group of friends. International clientele but not touristic. Food is good, cold cuts ok, coppa and ham are not the best. I'll be back with workmates for business lunch.

I've been for brunch with some friends, we sat in the lovely garden. Brunch includes a dish, mainly sandwich, and a very rich and various buffet, nice quality! A little break from milan's city vibe. Negative note: there weren't bartenders so they only served a...More

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
