We Rent all the place for a company event, we like the idea of Brasserie with small cozy small table rather than posh spot with not identity. I really enjoyed my Wellington Filet.

Amazing place. Our host in Milano recommended going there. It worth it! Even though the stuff wasn't sure in their English skills, we didn't have any problem there! The food was like home-made, fresh and super delicious. We had 2 types of lasagna and broccoli pasta, amazing! It is very popular among the locals as well, people were taking food... More

Been there with family and kids, friendly staff and manager. You know when you go for a dinner with 4 kids aged between 2 and 9 instead of sitting you have to dance during action. So we danced fast and kicked the kids out: The Bistrot looks at a square , we had time to have a relaxing dinner, when... More

Healthy food and quick service. Their buffet is well sorted, for vegetarians and non. The best is you can eat outside when the sun shines.

Dinner for 2 pax was 28 euros before drinks. The meal comprised of pre-prepared dishes, make your selection from what's displayed at the counter (rice, grains, curries, vegetables) Once your plate selection is done, your food will be heated up in the kitchen and then served. I think the price is too much for what's essentially a microwave dinner.

Perfect both for a quick snack and a relaxing lunch, tasty food, very friendly staff. Nice and cosy atmosphere, good location, and, most importantly, not touristy - just like eating out in your neighbourhood in the place you've known for ages :)

Good healthy choice for lunch. In front a square crowded with kids in the afternoon. Mainly vegetarian food but you can also find meat. The place is small and always full.

My daughter and I happened upon this bistro in a lovely plaza in Milan. The home cooked food was presented in a case and one could choose from all of the items for the price of a plate. I find this to be a unique concept, and perfect, because I wanted to taste a little of several items. The cost... More

Expect plain home food, and expect to find a very still display and food list. People are alternative left wing party cliche kind. Prices are coherent.

Cute little place, contemperary deco. Fast food, upscale cafeteria style. It is italian/indian not italian/mediterinian! You order at the counter, choose what you want to eat here ( ?2 covered ) or take out. I had chicken tonderi, chicken curry with rice, my friend had meat balls, orange chicken and black rice. All are very tasty. A plate is ?9.... More
