Visited the restaurant twice: once with a local business partner and once solo. Unfortunately it seems that they have a special treatment for regulars. Not only was the waiter way more attentive but also the servings appeared to be a bit different. The starters for example had some extras which were missing on my seconds visit. I'll probably give them... More

Very unfriendly service personnel! The food is average and much too expensive given the quality. Bad atmosphere in the restaurant.

We four adults had a lovely, low-key meal at what clearly is a local restaurant but draws a wide range of persons. The staff greet many people as regulars and the ambiance is very much a unique restaurant, not aimed at tourists. Service was great and very helpful since we do not speak Italian. Food was excellent.

If you want to get away from the shopping crowds and have your lunch at an old school Milanese restaurant, this is the place to go. It's tucked away on a side street from Corso Vittorio Emanuele. I had a delicious risotto with octopus, a glass of white and coffee the first time and the second time I had tagliatelle... More

The pasta was one of the best meals I've had in Italy. We liked it so much, that we went again the second night. Their excellent white house wine is only mentioned in the Italian language menu (and not the English menu). Our hotel recommended this restaurant.

It is a landmark in Miland as you can see by all the celebrity photos hanging in the restaurant. The interior looks like a cliché Italian restaurant but in a good way. The service is good, the waiters speak English, the menu card is small, which makes deciding what to eat easier. The food itselg was disappointing, we ordered pizza... More

Looking for a place to dine we came up to this really nice restaurant and had a nice very good "à la carte" meal just outside. We latter found out they serve a fabulous buffet inside.

Retro throwback find with old school waiters which was quirky The veal escalope was good as was the veal with artichokes. The spaghetti aglio olio was al dente and eggplant was wonderful Of course we had the tiramisu which was really traditional and that means good!

We had two different pizzas - both were delicious. The service was highly professional and the atmosphere was very pleasant. Reservation is a must.

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.
