Simply a shame. Thinking about it now I should have contacted whatever consumer protection service they have in Italy. Among other things, we ordered the veal "Milanese", quite a safe bet for a suburb of Milan right? Couldn't be any wrong. Whether the veal grew...More

I ate here in a group of five for dinner. The restaraunt was deserted which should of started alarm bells ringing. Very disappointing, lukewarm food and not worth anywhere near the €30 for one course each and no alcohol.

Server was a bit abrupt with us, used to waiting for orders but came across quite gruff. Anyways food was nice, had chicken with spinach and hubby had pork with mashed potato, both were tasty. Had expresses so both enjoyed lunch.

Restaurant is located in the middle of the city, convenient to hotels. Very good food, somewhat unusual Italian dishes (such as rabbit). Gnocchi in Gorgonzola cream sauce is excellent! Prices for entrees (Secondi) range between 18 to 30 euros. One not-so-pleasant note: restaurant located on...More

Skill fully prepared local dishes. Really appreciated the gluten free pasta options available- loved the squid, tomato and zucchini sauce. Delicious! Fun to watch the people in the square. You definitely want an outdoor table.
