We utilised this back street restaurant as it was close to the hotel we were staying in. Very much a locals restaurant and there’s not a lot of English spoken and no English menu’s. But that wasn’t a problem for us as the waiter (possibly...More

We came to Milan for three days, and ate here twice. A really charming atmosphere, and excellent food to match. Service was fantastic, and really added something to the experience. Our first night, the waiter spoke very little English, but was incredibly friendly and helpful...More

Not sure if it was the plane in the window or the motorcycle above the pizza oven that first drew me into this great value friendly restaurant. As others have said they don't all speak English but the waitress was happy to translate. Friendly attentive...More

The Pizza was good, however, while i was looking at the display of books in the front window - The first thing i noticed there was a book about Adolf Hitler. That pretty much had a bad effect on my apatite.

Dovete commentare quello che mangiate. Non i libri di storia. Mi chiedo come tripadvisor possa pubblicare questa recensioni vergognose.

They don't speak English, but don't let that deter you! The food is amazing and the service impeccable. Reserve a table to avoid disappointment.

ma chi cucina? avevo visto un articolo che parlava di uno Chef stellato Caserini , però sono venuta a pranzo la settimana scorsa e ho visto solo personale exstracomunitario che non parla nemmeno bene la lingua Italiana infatti ero tentata a organizzare una cena per la laurea di mia figlia presso di voi,ma ora leggendo i commenti e (le risposte) non sono più sicura le recensioni sono belle, però chi le ha scritte? gente che ne capisce di cucina o persone che di solito mangiano nei fast food la buona cucina è dettata per me anche dalla professionalità e se chi cucina nel paese che lo ospita, non capisce la lingua, figuriamoci sa se leggere le date di scadenza.

vi ho scritto una recensione ma tanto ho capito che pubblicano solo quelle false positive,perchè siete estremamente negativi ultimamente nel servizio e quindi è ovvio che sono accomodate la mia domanda è semplice. ma come mai da due settimane a pranzo state servendo i clienti come al porcile? menù di seconda categoria , poca scelta piatti poveri, primi exstra conditi , le ricevute bisogna chiedervele, se no non le rilasciate il cameriere a pranzo sembra in coma, ti guarda perprlesso e si scorda di potertarti il piatto, o non ti porta le posate o si gira scocciato se lo chiami due volte, ma noi abbiamo solo 20 minuti per pranzare e sentirci dire poi, che per soli 6€ non dobbiamo avere pretese, allora sono 3 le cose. o alzate il prezzo. o vi svegliate o meglio che chiudete
