the salumi was most excellent. however the rest of the meal wasn't so great. Ordered osso bucco and veal chop as well as risotto and ravioli. they were ok but not stellar. they were bland and needed salt as well as more parmesan reggiano. note as some mentioned, they automatically serve you antipasti without menu (or the server) mentioning the cost.

we didn't have a reservation. he seemed hesitant to allow us to eat there even though we were there right when they opened. three more parties came while we there.

wasn't bad but I disagree with the 4☆ rating.

Osteria al Portone, is a great little restaurant in the outskirts of Milan. Great cuisine and service are the high points of this restaurant, food is great and cooked with a homemade touch! Highly recommended!

Referred by hotel, was looking for small , quiet, great food at reasonable prices. Massimo and his wife do all the cooking and everything from what we could tell was made to order. Two beers, salad, artichoke pasta, veal dinners and a great bottle of wine for less than 100 euros. Pasta was fresh and cooked perfectly, service by Massimo and Giovanni was great, olive oil and balsamic vinegar were fantastic. Suggest reservations as it is small.

It is surprisingly difficult to find a good Osso Buco in Milan. The completely un-pretentious Osteria Al Portone makes an excellent version! The two of us had two different, both very tasty Risotto's as first courses, a bottle of Barbaresco to follow, and Tiramisu as dessert - and all at a very reasonable price!
