“Excellent Panini but be prepared to pay!”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

This is a lovely little Panino shop that I found through a friend and I keep going back to. As it is quite small you sometimes have to wait though all the panini I have tried have been worth it. There is quite a range to choose from divided up by the different meat or fish fillings. Expect to pay about 8 euros for the panino, in my opinion it is worth it though in a regular cafe you wouldn't expect to pay more than about 4 or 5. The drinks are quite pricey and certainly add to your bill. 2 panini 2 bottles of coke cost 25 euros (and they were small bottles). Despite this if you are in Milan and looking for a fancier lunch certainly go and check them out!!

“Delicious”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

This place has been around a long time. We went for a panino late in the afternoon and had the usually very busy place, all to ourselves. I don't remember the name of the panini we had, but they were excellent. The service was friendly, the music was good, and the glasses of red wine we had were fantastic.
We will definitely be back.

“Hidden Treasure”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

It's a gem in the heart of Milan. You don't see tourists here, but you do see the photos of celebrities that had been to the restaurant. These are the best paninis I ever tried. More than 200 choices. It's kind of take out restaurant, since there is limited seating options. There are few stools against the wall, and a couple more outside. But it is worth the effort to eat like that. The bread is simply delicious! I would recommend it for a quick and light lunch.

This was the best panino I had in Italy, and this is between months spent in Florence, Rome, and Milan. Plus great cosy, atmosphere.

“Good panini where the celebrities have been”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

There is a lareg collection of signed photos on the wall, mostly from footballers. There is a huge selection of panini based on different kinds of ham, bresaola, fish or vegetarian. Seating is very limited, so beware on a cold or wet day. House win average +.

Pricing from 5-11 each, beware you may need two to get full.
