We returned to this place last week of January as we remember the good meals we had here in the past! The staff is very efficient and gives you suggestions of the specialities of the day which do not appear on the printed menu! Service is very friendly and many locals are regular guests. We enjoyed a lovely lasagne al... More

We had only just arrived in Milan and went looking for something to eat. We were enticed into this restaurant even though the prices were a little expensive but where they are situated it is somewhat understandable. The atmosphere was great and the service was very good. However, the food was disappointing as both of the pasta dishes we had... More

We have visit the restaurant during new year eve. Service was terrible and we have been waiting long time for the food to arrive. We ordered mix of 3 raviolis. The taste was not good at all, and the ravioly was dry. There are much better restaurants in much less cost. We paid almost 100 euro and the food was... More

You are Right, you wait a lot of time. But it was the 31/12/2016 and as you can see we were very busy, It can happen. For the quality I'm not agree with you. Gil Hovav made here a Tv Show called "Capitan Cook" and I think he understand about quality . In any case Happy New Year. Paolo Bonomo More

We were there for lunch. We all ordered different things and the prices were to high. Especially they count you a service fee of 3,50 per person.

Attractive, italian, however, becareful because we were enticed into the restaurant for lunch. Nice atmosphere, nice staff, but food was expensive for the price even for Milan. It was average tasting food with very little of the core ingredient, we had the lasagne Nice to visit. But be advised at what you buy!!

We were looking around to try risotto alla Milanese and found good review online, so we gave it a try of this restaurant. First we had unfriendly waiter who forgot how to greet and smile. The we ordered the risotto and a gnocchi, then worse nightmare came. Risotto is average and my gnocchi is well over cook and bland. Had... More

I think that "Kwang Yang" is not able to make judgments on Italian food. His/her problem it's only money, he/she is happy to pay 16 € for 2 person. The only place were it's possible to pay 16€ for 2 person it's McDonald. Paolo Bonomo More

We were just wondering in the centre of Milan, looking for some decent restaurant. The reason why we chose this one is the staff and the sign next to the door (you'll see when you're there). We chose the meal of the day. It was... the most delicious meal we ate in Milan so far, it was just simply perfect.... More

We found this place because of the good recommendations on tripadvisor. Staff wasn't friendly. Antipasti were very basic. Pasta pesto wasnt really good. Macaroni was basic.

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
