“La sidreria - amazingly unespected! ...and price is comparable to a fastfood”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

Well known place among Milanese people,but... unknown to me until yesterday (when colleagues suggested it to me and when I checked on Tripadvisor too).
Nice place with big barrels decoration... clean, casual and firendly.
I reserved and arrived early in the evening... and I was the only guest for at least 20 minutes...

In the meantime I appreciated the cyder (two versions, one of them sparkling and bottled, the other still and by tap) and a first round of all the offered foods.
Still cyder is offered with free selfservice refill that you can obtain from the huge barrel near the entrance... and this cyder is strong, so be careful!

About the menu:
The apple salad was simply delightful.
The meatballs with herbs were very good and tasty.
The black rice (venere) was impressive.
the rice with asparagus and cheese was not reching perfection only because was missing some salt and so you have to rely on adding some 'parmigiano' cheese.
The drunk turkey was bland and a bit anonymous (but not bad) as the as the 'gnocchi'.

I asked to have 'il bis' for meatballs and the two rice dishes and they gladly bring it to me... as they offer you also free food refill (multiple times if requested).

When you got bored by the appertizers and main courses... you can go for the desserts.
Four desserts were offered and I really appreciated two of them:
the bisquits with calvados and the cappuccino cake.

The best surprise is the price!
In april weekdays (not weekend) the price is lowered and you amazingly pay 20EUR "all inclusive".

Basic rate for food is 7/10, not taking in account the price.
Considering also the price - la Sidreria is cheaper than a fastfood and better than many restaurants - my appreciation will be 8/10.

About the service:
an attentive and smiling waitress (Chanel?) brings you the food and asks always if you want to replentish your dish.

“Worth the Waylay”
Reviewed March 25, 2012

Nice idea in a nice decor: serving light-flavoured recipes that match well with either sweet, sparkling cider - served bottled - or dry, still cider served from tap.

They had just opened back then, and were friendly and accurate. Food was good and pleasant.

The only drawback: very drab surroundings with limited and mostly irregular roadside parking, almost under a highway viaduct.

“Wonderful Restaurant”
Reviewed February 25, 2012

Our dinner on Thursday, January 5 and the day after, was Very exquisite. Our servers were very attentive, but never obsequious. The expert server who presented the cheese and meat cart was charming, elegant, knowledgable and also very fun! I am sorry but I do not have his name. It was a wonderful night.

“Genuine Italian Home Cooking”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

One set menu with a selection of Italian home cooking. Reasonable price, unlimited amount of ciders! Very friendly service. They keep coming back and ask whether we would like some more of the same dishes
