Looks good. The burrata was great. Thats where the compliments end, unfortunately. Zucchini flowers so over crumbed and fried that the delicacy of the flower was lost, gnocchi with wasabi was bland and my stuffed calamari with baccala was unpalatable. Expensive to boot. Such a shame.

Came here by myself after dinner plans with friends fell through--the burrata was supposed to be amazing, and everything else as well. I was so sad to find that they were out of burrata that night (!) but I made do with the fried gnocchi and pastas. The waiter was very kind, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere was... More

Very popular at lunchtime, and understandably so as they offer a good selection of dishes at very reasonable prices. The service is well paced for lunchtime and also friendly and accommodating: when they spotted that we were sharing our starters (cold cuts and buratta) they brought an extra plate. Also excellent cocktails at seven euros.

Very nice place with splendid service and good food. Only thing that might improve was that the viel that we had was too big and a really heavy piece of meat. I recommend a visit and I will go here again! Thanks for a nice evening!

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.
