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

The place is located in a nice area, is relative near the Duomo. the food was great: for starter we choose a mix of salamis and burratta (one of the bests I've ever tried). 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

Very good food - watch out the portions are big, but it is difficult to resist having both a primo and secundo platti !!

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.
