We had dinner for two and were very satisfied with the food we had. They presented the salmon salad on a nice plate and delivered the steak at the table on a hot pan. Our waiter kept smiling all the time and was very kind with a good sense of humour.

The food here was fairly good, I had the Steak Tagliata which was great, just a bit on the expensive side if you also take some poatatoes to go with it.. A look at the wine menu had me amazed as I saw the 2014 Badiola from Zeni for only 12 EUR a bottle! I've bought this particular wine in... More

I was directed to the area of the Naviglio Grande by a clerk in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. I walked along the canal until I saw a restaurant that seemed rather busy and charming. I could not have chosen better. I believe it was the best meal of my life! The waiters were helpful and efficient, and I enjoyed... More

Stopped here for dinner and a bit of people watching. The passing parade was interesting. This place really rocks on a Friday and Saturday night. The onion soup was a great warmer, the steak was really good and the pasta adequate. Helped it all wash down with a nice chanti. Staff very efficent.

This restaurant has had very mixed reviews. However, we had lunch and two evening meals here and we both found it very good for service, food, value and atmosphere. Sample prices - salmone marinato €12, potato soup €5, mixed salad €5, tagliolini gameri.

You are spoilt for choice in Navigli, I think we decided on here through menu read overload, this menu ok the staff not too pushy, a good spot for a bit of people watching and the restaurant looked ok inside and out, we chose out under the canopy. We weren't up for a big meal so just one of the... More

Nice food, location and service. Great for people watching by the canal. Local Milanese dishes are a treat. Quite pricey, though.

To pay 20 E for a schnitzel milanesi style with nothing more than a few patatoes as a sidedish is too much. Surrounded by the happy hour crowd who pays 10 E for a drink and unlimited fast food. This suppose to be the new and upcoming area. As many other things in this city the food allongside the canal... 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.
