We went to this restaurant after looking at all of the recommendations we saw on Trip Advisor. We were only in Milan for one night and it was my Husband's Birthday so we decided to splash out and have the Degustation menu. We had the seafood and meat menu of 7 courses. The food was trying to be fusion Italian... More

The staff here is amazing. From the hostess to the waiter and chef, I don't think I've ever had such good service. Not obsequious just friendly and professional. The meal was very good with complimentary appetizers and palate cleansers that they bring between dishes. My only complaint was that my wife's sea bream was quite salty but that has been... More

We went here for an anniversary dinner after reading the TA reviews, and were impressed with the elegant ambiance - for a very small family-run restaurant it was very nice. We arrived at 8:30 and there were very few patrons there . . . not a good sign... but by 9:15 it was completely full - all obviously with advance... More

The restaurant's name is literally translated: the way Carlo does it. I guess the chef that served us was Carlo- we didn't want to upset him so we did it "his way" and we asked for the fish taste menu and wine "degustazione". 7 dishes (including dessert), 3 (or 4) different wines. Carlo(?) took us for an awesome food ride,... More

I'm a foodie, and this was my favorite dinner I have ever had. I would classify the food as modern Italian, as everything on the menu is prepared or presented with a twist. The dishes are all individual works of art. Add to that small tastings served before and between meals (on the house), and you have yourself an unforgettable... More

We walked into restaurant at about 7.30 and it was totally empty, not encouraging. The serving staff spoke good English and was very helpful, the menu was full of interesting but unfamiliar items, In the end, we decided to have some have a degustation menu and seafood and others of meat. The staff chose items from the menu based on... More

Excellent in every way. The food was so fresh and delicious. A gastronomic delight. We chose this restuarant from the latest Trip Advisor recommendations, and we were not dissappointed. We were warmly welcomed on arrival. The food was innovative and beautiful plated. A taste sensation of pre-course extras. The food, and service, extensive wine list - absolutely outstanding!

Carlo's Way was a dream come true. I have always been a great fan of Italian kitchen. A visit to Maniera di Carlo was more than I could imagine. The ambiance, the music (round midnight from Miles Davis will remind me this great place for a long time!), the good feeling of being taken care by the owner personally, and... More

A place where you can eat really delicious Italian food with a modern twist. Kitchen refers to the global trend in serving dishes that look perfect in terms of visual linking many interesting flavors on the plate. A very interesting item on the Milan restaurant map
