I ordered a pizza, coffee and coke. 12.50€.... Not recommended. The coke was good though... Piccola Ischia is better and it's not that far away

I had been dying for a good risotto since arriving and we were recommended this restaurant by our hotel staff. Wes thrilled to find risotto on the menu but it was really disappointing. Stodgy, and looked as though it had come out of a packet! Very pleasant staff.

We ate here two nights ago. We had pizza and pasta, both were delicious. Wine was reasonable and a complimentary drink too! All for 22.50€, would definitely return.

The staff was friendly, took their time to advice. Although food itself is quite simple but delicious and of good quality. Cantine, but cozy atmosphere. P.S. Pizza is quite big :)

I usually stay away from sit down pizza restaurants in Italy and eat at the places that sell it by the square. This place was recommended to us by a local (that doesn't work in the tourist industry) and it did not disapoint, the pizzas were really great! It didn't strike me as a tourist trap at all and prices... More

Food was great! We tried mussels and shrimps as a starter and pizza as a main course. And it was a mistake... It is impossible to eat all the pizza after a starter :D All pizzas is being baked in a stone wood-burning stove. The interior is old-fashioned Italian restaurant - maybe not very nice for everyone, but really authentic!... More

Definitely worth a try if you are in Milano. As previous TA reviews, full of Italians, especially families on a Sunday evening which gives it atmosphere. Ordered the Focaccia pizza to start with to share - very good, followed by Milanese risotto - a little dry - my wife had the mushroom risotto - much more moist.

We went here twice already. We need to wait outside a little to be seated as it is always full everytime we come. The staffs were very friendly and accommodating and the food is simply very good! We had pizza, spaghetti alla carbonara, risotto alla milanese and cotoletta - all with the traditional taste! Definitely recommending this place!

I visited Milan this week and went to Portobello. Service is Good, and the staff was corteous. We ordered a spaghetti with vongoles and the risotto with mushrooms, both dishes were delicious. Great cost benefit. This restaurant is located out of the Via Corso Buenos Aires and is frequented by the locals, but they speak english.
