I only stopped for a drink, but stayed a while to listen to a good live blues band. The prices are reasonable for a club-like venue. The place is relaxed and very the staff are efficient. There is also seating outside.

Spent a lot of time here on our trip. Came here mainly after our evening by the canal and was right by our hotel. Great place to people watch and has a fair amount of seating inside and out. Drinks are fairly priced and the staff are laid back. Loved this place.

I have spent here really great nights also at summer time and I can recommend it for the whole year. Nice drinks, perfect live music at night and little dancing area. Service a bit slow and careless, but the place is worth to visit.

This is a lovely place to visit on a sunny day after a days sightseeing. We had cocktails with complimentary bar snacks. Great welcoming service with a very relaxing atmosphere. Would visit again if in Milan!

Good place for not-expensive lunch/dinner and the aperitivo. Great staff and service, an oasis in the hectic Milanese life.

This restaurant we visited for a lunch. They don not offer a lot of meals. Firstly, we chose lasagne with meat, but they did not have enough ingredients for preparation. So, next choice was salad with shrimpy. Salad was perfect. After lunch we get a glass of limoncello as a gift. We were very satisfied.

First time, certainly not the last. The staff was very friendly, especially the young female server. She greeted us with a smile and accommodated us indoors as it was a very hot afternoon. We ordered a strawberry granita, caffè shakerato, and a corona. With our beverages arrived many tasty treats; all complimentary. Tortilla chips with salsa, bread, and bruschetta. Thumbs... More

Really one of the only reasons I lived in Milan for over a year. Go for the music then get to know the staff. You'll thank me later. I'll never forget the fact that I'll never remember most of my nights in there. Amazing.

Thank Sean P

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.
