“Best Steak I have ever had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

We stopped here by chance as it was a sunny day and we wanted to sit outside. The food excelled. Had the spinach souffle to start which was amazing then steak and roast potatoes and salad, the steak was the best I have ever had. It was a very pleasant lunch in the sunshine by the canal. We hadn't been lucky finding restaurants in Milan but this was lovely, fully recommend.

“Michelin Quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2012

We stumbled across this place whilst walking the Navigli canal area and what a find! Lovely staff from the boss down. A beautiful contemporary interior with bamboo furniture. We had Octopus with potato and truffle sauce, spinach souffle and fresh fish, fantastic. Great value too, we would return tomorrow.

“Although a nice place, the food leaves a lot to be desired”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2011

Although the actual location is not too bad, the food was uninspiring - bland would be the correct word. Although the prices promise good quality (in terms of products used and cooking technique), what we actually got was a very shoddy presentation of supermarket food! For us, the worst bit was when the waiter left us the olive oil on the table, in its original packaging - it was Italy's most popular house product. This could have been 'hid' from the client. Will definitely not be going back

“Outstanding food, fantastic location & great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2011

Our concierge recommended Casa Borella on our last trip to Milan. It is a small, canal-side restaurant that was bustling with a largely local crowd. The food was really outstanding - one of the best meals we've had in Milan. Considering the food quality, the location, and the ambiance, the total bill was surprisingly reasonable. For Milan, the Casa Borella is a real bargain. I look forward to going back next time we are in Milan.
