I was here with two friends for dinner. The place is nice and food is good, even if probably not "as good as expected"... maybe also the fact that the place got some advertising because of a TV show had an impact on my expectations... The staff is very polite and the prices are reasonable. My very personal overall evaluation... More

Went there with friends, we had a lovely evening in a cozy atmosphere with comfort food and nice staff serving us. The cheese focaccia (focaccia di recco, the authentic one) is amazing and a must-have. In the back there is also a 'bocciofila' (Italian vintage bowling) which in summer is lovely and quirky. Rather short menu.

Could you get more Italian than a bocci ball court, old advertising on the walls, and contemporary sculptures? It would be tough. I ordered the pesto but I was a little disappointed - there didn't seem to be any pine nuts - how can that be? It's possible I've never had a "real" pesto before but I had hoped it... More

We had dinner with the precise purpose of eating Liguria specialties (focaccia al formaggio, testaroli, verdure ripiene) and, as happened already many times, we were not disappointed. Good food, peculiar interiors, possibility to eat outside by "bocce". Relaxed environment , friendly staff. Not the right place if you are looking for an international restaurant. Not in the city centre but... More

We visited this restaurant on a Saturday night in August, and requested a table for 4 in the back patio, not realizing that it was truly a smoking room with dinner. It would not have been so bad if they had the fans off. The staff was very friendly and asked if we wanted the fans off, they could see... More

I have visited place during dinner time and I have ordered 'Cozze' as antipasto and Grilled fish with grilled vegetables and it was very tasty. I have also tried white house wine which I think suited perfectly with the fish and veggies. The range price are affordable and the place has a really nice atmosphere. You can choose whether you...

I went to U Barba in the Milan Design Week. The place was full of artists, designers, cool people. Brilliant atmosphere, crowded but very friendly. The food was good, I appreciate special the reinvented Pesto. Wine list is short, good and cheap.

Thank claudiu l
