A select few will venture out of Milan to sample the skills of Osteria Magenes. Those that do will be very privileged to experience a great country-side Italian restaurant. We know these places as "sleepers" - Quietly achieving great culinary heights by taking traditional dishes and altering just so slightly to make the truly memorable. The famous Risotto Milanese is...

nothing to say about the courtesy and competence of the staff. The quality of the food is great but they have to delete the following defects: portions really too little, like a 'Japanese' restaurant, not guessed combinations in desserts, suggestions for the wine list is not very relevant, I mean, to propose a 'dolcetto' wine to almost 15 degrees for...
