Firstly, thank you to previous reviewers as they made up our mind to go here. As per Stephen F from Norway we were staying at Radisson Blu so took his advice and tried this restaurant. A great meal, a great experience. Friendly staff welcomed us in the door and seated us. Some tasty "samples" as starters as well as a complementary glass of prosecco each. Some very interesting appetisers, all scrumptious, including the previously mentioned meat balls. All devoured by our party of 4. Then between us we had Osso Bucco (x2), chicken fillets & steak. Possibly our best meal we'd had in Europe over 7 weeks. Then when we were done the lovely Jacqueline offered ( almost insisted on) ice creams, limoncello & amaretto....all gratis.
Our last night in Italy! How sad, I'd have loved to come back for more.
Perhaps next time.

Me and my boyfriend stayed three nights in Milan at Radisson Blu. The staff suggested that we eat dinner at Immagine.
The first night we were greeted with open arms and a group of smiley faces. We sat down and immediately felt at home with a welcoming drink! Whilst we read the menu we had fresh bread and sun dried tomatoes in olive oil. Then after ordering the staff came over with bruschetta on the house. They reccomended a good red wine, which was to die for, but personal taste must be taken into consideration.
We had meatballs for our starter. Juicey, rich and tasteful we could have nearly just had that as dinner since the portion size was so big!
I myself had Margheritta pizza which is definately the best i've ever tasted! My boyfriend had Lasagne which he devoured quitely, only to pop up for the occasional "mhm" when i asked if his food was good.
We were asked frequently if everything was ok and we had no problem communicating. The staff were great! Smiling all the time and doing everything to make us feel welcome.
We ate there again the following night and enjoyed what can only be described as THE most succulent beef i have ever had in my entire life!!!
The staff recognized us from the previous night and once again we were welcomed with open arms and friendly hellos.
We had such a wonderful experience that if travelling to Milan again this restaurant would absolutely be one of the reasons!!

This place is always jampacked full with tourists but no locales eating there. Food was good enough but definitely have tasted better Italian food elsewhere and cheaper too.

This was our first visit to Milan and having checked Trip Advisor for recommendations, we came across this restaurant and it was within a 5 minute walk of our hotel. We both thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Having arrived, we were instantly given a little glass of prosecco which was a lovely way to start the evening. The waitress was most helpful to us and also recommended a lovely bottle of prosecco. The food was good, the service was excellent. I would highly recommend a visit here.

I made a surprise reservation for my husband and I, on March 2013, when we visited Milan because of a fair. The atmosphire of this restaurant was much different that we were used to and some of the served food as well. We had candy in our table and fruits. After the dinner the waitress brought two bottles of liqueur to our table and we didn't know for sure if we were allowed to pour ourselves drinks or not. We did so and that was fun. That is not going to happen in finnish restaurant, never.
