Small restaurant specialising in Milanese cuisine. Not easy to find unless you know it is there, but amazing selection of food and wines in a small setting. Book table to avoid disappointment. I always let Angelo, the owner, choose what I will eat for me,...More

We came over Trip Advisior. First time in Milano. Foods and house wine first class. Price for Milano fair. We recomend.

Difficult to find if you are not specifically looking for it, and the small size might be misleading. All meals are prepared to order and the quality is outstanding, specializing in typical Milanese recipes, some available only 'in-season'. Incredible wine selection. Could not fault it.

This is a very popular restaurant, if you're lucky you'll get a table for lunch. Simple menu- choose between a few pasta dishes. Decent prices and nice food. Recommend!

Very nice cozy feel restaurant in the Canal district(Navigli). Nice wine selection, good value. Tasty pasta and free wifi. Low prices. What's not to like?

Good small menu. Restaurant itself is also small. Reservations are recommended. English doesn't really work at this place, but you'll be fine with anything here. A little gem.

With mostly take away around the station area this place was a pleasant surprise. Reasonably priced and good hearty traditional food. The gentlemen who served us was charming. The guys in the kitchen also deserve a complement. Better than average.

Having seen the excellent reviews I was worried that I might have got my hopes too high. However, it was (almost) all very good. The decor wasn't modern but was nice enough and the ambience was very good. Service was very friendly. We only had...More

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
