A great fish restaurant, informal but with great food. As you enter, fish and seafood are on display on ice - the place then is informal and warm, with a kind and professional service. We had great starters - the evening was on a Venetian seafood theme and I had a fantastic grilled octopus - followed by a combination of... More

With friends, is a Osteria with large seafood options. Raw and Oyster are fresh and tasty. Fried seafood and pasta are options to try. Won't fail. Reasonable prices.

Good seafood for reasonable price, medium bill for a generous dinner for 2 is 80€, which is good for seafood Milan's places. Nice service, cozy and easy atmosphere. Great for friends and family.

This is probably one of the best fish restaurants in Europe! The food is super fresh, delicious, no sign of garlic - which is very important to me! We had several starters, a main dish each and unfortunately, no space for desserts... We had oysters, octopus, king prawns, salads, fried zuccinni, calamari. Everything was super tasty! And the prices are... More

Having tried many places during my week long stay I found this restaurant the one to come back. Food was good , fresh and the service was amazing. A complimentary proseco to start and limoncello to end was amazing. The homemade tiramisu was the one of the best I ever had.

Learnt about this restaurant from the Guardian article on the 10 best seafood restaurants of Milan. WOW! The seafood is fresh, innovatively cooked with daily specials and beautifully presented by a group of very friendly young waiters and waitresses. Natalie was a gem, explained the specials and recommended a nice wine. The Sicilian Mussels were to die for, more than... More

Staying in Navigli

Neighbourhood Profile
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 supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.
