Eating local is all the rage these days but here it is history and done extremely well.
They serve the local cuisine simply and with style. Our hotel Duca di York recommended
this restaurant on a rainy night and they were right. We had no reservation at 19:30 and
walked right in. Great service smoothed over our Italian and we enjoyed gnocchi with pesto
followed by ravioli stuffed with pumpkin and sage and finishing with their wonderful osso
buco with saffron risotto. Local wine, local dessert 87E. We will stop again in two weeks.

Many reviewers write that they come here twice during a visit to Milan, and I can understand why. Amazing service, with incredible heart by Francesco, led us to an incredible dinner. We started with the Gnocco w parma ham which truly was wonderful, but as Francesco said, unnecessary, as the portions were indeed huge! We had the incredible veal milanese, with salad, which was as good as it gets. Francesco actually added the salt and olive oil for us. Our other main course was maybe the best ossobuco of all time!! Fall off the bone good, paired with the saffron risotto, this dish was heaven. Francesco recommended the typical Milanese dessert, which we had no room for, but finished, and that too was wonderful.
This is not a fancy restaurant, but one that serves their food with pride and much love. If you're looking for fine dining, this is not the place for you. The food comes out rather quickly, but every morsel was delicious.

Get here, you'll be very happy you did. Also, the restaurant is located by the canal, so after lunch or dinner, it's a great place to walk and people watch and maybe have an after dinner drink!! WONDERFUL STUFF!! BRAVO!!

PS- I suggest a reservation as this place naturally gets quite crowded!! (especially at dinner where they serve over 200 veal cutlets on a Saturday night).

Went twice here for lunch and dinner and both times received great service and food to match in an authentic Milanese setting. This is really a locals haunt free of pesky tourists, I hope it stays that way and retains its charm.

Very true Milanese food with large portions and a big menu. Fast service but waiters can be a little dismissive especially if you do not understand Italian well. ( or cannot read the menu)
Loved the pasta and could not even finish the veal Milanese as it was huge.
Not a good choice if you want a private romantic dinner as they seat people together at larger tables, and all are pretty close together.
But there are local families and couples , many of whom seem to be regulars, so it is good fare for a good fair price ,
Good wine list and value overall.
