Lovely to sit along the canal, with good food and friendly staff. The Milanese risotto was delicious, and the atmosphere was good.

The fact that it is the oldest restaurant in Milan is already special itself, but I was surprised also by the charming entrance of this restaurant. Great food (I was able to have a completely vegetarian meal) and wine.

Highly recommended. Ask for a table in the garden and always make a reservation in advance because they are very busy. Good food and superb wine. We will definitely visit again.

The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient
days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar
to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the
Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are
two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande.
The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk
with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes
in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns
