I read about Montecristo and decided to try, as we were looking to have a nice relaxing dinner. For some reason the taxi couldnt locate because the address i found was Corso Sempione 28, but apparently they have moved further down the street. The correct address should be Corso Sempione ang. Via prina 17. Website: http://www.ristorantemontecristo.com/

The taxi driver was kind enough to call the restaurant for directions and he didn't even charge us fr that slight detour! I love Italy!

We finally found the place and they were full house. Nevertheless, they told us to give them 10mins and so we waited. Finally, after a short wait, we were given a table downstairs. I must say the place can be litted up a little bit more.

For starters,we tried the Royal platter which consisted of cold seafood (carpaccio style). I must say it was so fresh. I settled for a seafood pasta for my main and had the tiramisu for dessert. By the end of the night i was so stuffed. Prices were reasonable.

I will definitely make a visit here next time i am in Milan. But this time, will make a reservation as this place seems to be quite popular.

I am travelling to Milan quite often and almost every time I go here. The seafood is really right. Federico, one of the waiters (I guess he is the son of the owner - family business
;-)), is very helpful and can easily organize any dish you want. The latest time we got amazingly fresh oysters and incredibly delicious spaghetti. Attention (maybe I am so lucky): quite often they are closed for private parties, so the preliminary booking would be helpful :-)

When I told address to taxi driver he asked - oh, you are about to visit Montecristo? Good choice! And it indeed was good.
Seafood was extremely tasty and sophisticated. I tool assortment of cold and hot appetizers - very well done. Hot ones were prepared in shells - looked nice! For hot they proposed baked carpaccio - very unusual, but month-melting. Desserts like everywhere in Italy are over the top. Veneto wine made from Garganega grapes fitted the dishes perfectly.
I see that others mentioning darkness - indeed, I didn't like that. But all the rest was great. Would recommend to any seafood lover! Prices are reasonable.
