This restaurant was recommended to us as one of the best places to eat in Milan - and having tried it out I fully agree!! Great atmosphere, really authentic Italian food of very high quality, decent prices - real value for money - fast and efficient service by adult, professional waiters, and an impressive wine list.

I have been here many times and also reviewed it before. This time I had a very tasty pumpkin creme brûlée as a starter, the tagliata di manzo as a main course, ice cream with blueberry liquor for desert and half a bottle of vino mobile di Montepulciano. The service is friendly and attentive, and it's still one of my... More

I booked this restaurant for me and my boyfriend after looking through TripAdvisor at some of the best places to eat in Milan. It changes the menu every month so everything is fresh. The atmosphere was brilliant. Small, traditional Italian restaurant with exquisite service. The food was lovely, my only issue (which is why I have rated 4 stars instead... More

Great interior and atmosphere, very typical Italian with candle lights in champagne bottles etc. Very welcoming and comfortable, makes you relax and enjoy your time there. The menu offers classical, good Italian dishes with some well put-together options such as carpaccio with truffle cheese or monkfish in pistachio sauce. The wine list is quite extensive and the service is great.... More

Main courses: Mushroom spaguetti, cod puree (yes.. that's right.. the cod... More

We did well to book a table in advance -- this place gets full, especially at weekends. Both the food and the accompanying wines were excellent, and staff were knowledgeable and friendly. My only two criticisms would be that this restaurant gets very, very noisy -- there's not much criticism. And: after finishing my main course, I had barely put... More

A warm welcome was followed by a very enjoyable meal with the best of service. We had not booked but by the time we left it was full - a good sign in any restaurant. The little extra we were given was a delight. Please go and enjoy -we did.

Staying in Navigli

Neighborhood Profile
Navigli
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.
