We had read reviews that raised our expectations - but everything we had was ok, nothing special and if anything, a tad expensive. Risotto was good. Service size was good. Location is interesting - a walk along the canal beforehand lifted the appetite. Service was...More

My wife and I enjoyed a great dinner here. The restaurant area is very charming/romantic. Although not a large menu selection, I did have the veal cutlet and it was not only delicious but the portion was very large. Wine selection was great--we found a...More

Now, I’ve never been here before and nor has my girlfriend but we must’ve upset the management at some point in a past life because I can only assume that’s why it was such a poor experience! Let’s start with the welcome, this was actually...More

It is a must have for the Italian food enthusiasts, ambiance and interior is quire welcoming accompanied with proper service . We were recommended by our Milanian business partners and I recommend it to anyone who wants to experience Italian cuisine.

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

This restaurant is among the most famous in Milan for the classic Milanese cuisine (Meneghina), but I am sure that if you speak in good time with the Maitre you will satisfy your request
