We wanted to find and eat at a restaurant frequented by the locals. We were given a warm welcome by the young lady who said she was the owner. It was clean, cosy with fresh flowers and candles on each table. We found this place from recent Trip Advisor recommendations.
The food choices were very good, and we really enjoyed our delicious meals. Excellent, fast, friendly and efficient service. We weren't able to fully read the Italian menu, but each dish was explained enough for us to understand what we would be eating. We enjoyed watching the plates of food come out, that the locals had chosen. It all looked very good, and we already know what we would choose next time. We must remember to bring our Italian translation book next time.
We would highly recommend this restaurant. It was close to where we were staying.

Lile in cucina opened in 2010 in a central are of Milan close to the fashion district. Here you can find fresh and good food for a reasonable cost. Food is based on Northern Italy tradition and you have also a good choice of wine (glass or bolttle) do not miss home made desserts. At noon you have to arrive before 1 pm otherwise it will be almost full, in the evening is easier to find a place. The reastaurant is small (I would say max 40 people) and nice. Service is accurate but not exactely professional.

Lile is so cozy that I go there when I want to feel like at a good friend's place.
The atmosphere is perfect, private, just like home. The food is all italian and it often comes from small farms, it's cooked in the italian way and it changes frequently depending on the season. There is also a good wine selection and the desserts....they are amazing!
The two guys, Ilenia and Mattia, are young, very kind and they pay attention to you without interfere with your conversation.
It's the perfect restaurant if you are looking for good italian food in a very warm atmosphere!!

Decoration makes you feel in a cheap flat - with the exception of the lavatory... elsewhere wannabe minimalistic design including light brown furniture, cheap straw chairs, clashing traditional floor, flower-printed fabric and very noisy ambiance (because of too high a ceiling and bare walls)
I ate a meat tartare that was so hard to cut that I spat some in the plate and left the rest: the manager put the blame on the cook and left the 20 EUR on the bill..thank you
the rest of the list was average Italian food that you can cook yourself at home...pls do in this case..
With the current competition from mid-range Milan restaurants there is no way ordinary client like me will be back
