“Great food, must try”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

Extensive menu of typical Italian dishes, emphasis on seafood. Top quality ingredients, with very fresh seafood. Good variety of pasta, meat and seafood dishes to please everyone's taste. The dessert trolley is hard to resist

“Classic Italian seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

This restaurant was highly recommended to me by some discerning travelers. The style is classic with an emphasis on fresh seafood. Food was good but the old fashioned decor and fantastic dessert trolley really made the experience for me. Simple elegant and expensive.

“Mmm not as good as the reviews!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

We read about Da Giacomo and decided to try it out, without previous booking. Pleasantly we found valet parking for our car, which we were charged 10 euros for! We were able to find a table for four, in a room, not the main restaurant area. The decor was oldish and although very Italian, I felt needed updating. The restaurant was busy and we had one waiter serving 4 tables, which fine, except for his attitude! He wasn't very helpful and we ordered risotto, which was not tasty at all! We also ordered sea bass, which was fine and the octopus hot salad wasn't so great! Personally I would prefer octopus cold in a salad. The King Crab salad wasn't bad, except the portion was more like a French cuisine portion! Not all of were having fish, but our cutlery was not changed at all. The dessert trolley which was bought to us at the end of our meal, looked very appetizing, but we declined! All in all it was an ok experience. Not as good as we expected.

Outstanding place. Great atmosphere. The best simple, without undue enrichment taste seafood. And these fantastic wines.... Prices acceptable. We are captivated. A visit to Milan without a great meal at Da Giacomo is a lost day. Thank you. Fans from Cracovia

“The best seafood in Milan”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

Place to see and to been seen, but the food is also amazing. To start with they offer a slice of pizza, after that is all about fresh high quality seafood. Expensive and noisy, but is my favourite
