“Hip and chic, unique gold bar”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

The bar unfortunately allows smoking, therefore in the winter upon entering the lobby the first thing we smelled was cigarette smoke. Other than that you are greeted by polite and pretty ladies that will check your reservation, take you to the wardrobe and accompany you either to the bar or to your table.
In any case, the bar serves good drinks (not cheap) that as aperitif are accompanied by a nice array of snacks. We also love having the aperitif at the outdoor tables when the weather is nice. We like the decor and the hip ambience overall. Food isn't consistent, personally I prefer the regular menu to the Sicilian menu, but I love the filet tartar and some other dishes.
My wife loves the big, beautiful and clean gold bathrooms with screens playing Goldfinger. Prices? For the type of restaurant and the level of service they are totally normal and in line with similar restaurants in Milan. A typical dinner for two will cost about €100 plus wine.
The restaurant is located on a beautiful square that over the years is becoming more and more lively, especially in the warmer months. There is a convenient underground parking just out the door.

“Expensive and run down. Plus, bland food.”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

We wanted to treat ourselves to a luxury night. Mistake! The food was really nothing special at all.... the only thing special was the grossly elevated price. Plus, the "elegantly decadent" setting seems out of date and quite cheesy. It feels more like you are in a Russian restaurant in 1984 that never got with the times and just rides the coattails of the name.

“Have to agree with the reviews below”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

I had high expectations of this restaurant but as everyone should know by know, tripadvisor never lies! In its defence, the actual bar area is one of the best in the world - the cocktails are exquisitely delivered in very generous proportions - the apperitivo is actually better than the food in the main restaurant.

In relation to the food in the restaurant, it was distinctly average, although not poor. The dishes were fairly reasonably priced but too many dishes means that the general impression is unfocussed. The atmosphere in the restaurant did not link into the lively, buzzy bar. I feel that they need to work harder in harnessing the energy and dynamism of the bar into the restaurant area. The atmosphere was a bit flat. The waiters though were friendly and did try as hard as they could. Sadly they were let down by the chef.

I would recommend trying Armani Hotel's restaurant as a viable alternative. Come here for apperitivo though. Get a taxi as there is nothing much happening in this area.
