We gave this a glowing review last year and were so looking forward to going back. May be all relative to expectations but it was still fine/good but not as special as before. May be chef's night off, who knows. It was also much less full than before so may be the word is out. Anyway still a lovely dinner... More

I visited Osteria di Porta Cicca for dinner on a Friday evening in Milan. There were some good choices on the menu but I felt it was overpriced and the seasoning was a little unbalanced in the cotoletta. The desserts, however, were good. But overall, this was too expensive for what you get.

Wow! I wasn't sure what to expect when we entered, but we were pleasantly surprised. I had a great pasta followed by an extraordinary well prepared rabbit - the meat melted on my tongue. Good dessert to follow and everything joined by great wines. Very helpful staff. Great experience.

Was here for dinner with business colleagues. Had a great meal with both excellent service and food. The wine list is also great. Nothing to fault. Highly recommended.

The restaurant looks very good but the food was a total let down. On arrival we were warned by the couple next to us that the food was average and overpriced but we decided to try it anyway. We ordered the rabbit and it was overcooked and under seasoned, if you closed your eyes you would have thought you were... More

I had dinner with my wife here and we both choose the tasting menu. Everything was presented nicely on the plate and the risotto was decent. Unfortunately the food was over all lacking substance and good "italian" taste ... The braised rabbit and the dessert cake was dry. Waiters were very friendly and professionel.

How hard is it to smile at your guests, check everything's ok, or even just ask if they'd like a dessert ? Even though the restaurant wasn't full, the staff just didn't do this, though to be fair they did respond to requests and were efficient. A big shame as the food was very good indeed but this doesn't feel... More

Staying in Navigli

Neighborhood Profile
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 supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.
