Stayed at the Leonard next door so decided to check out this place. It was quite busy even on a Monday evening. How was the food? Ordered the ossobuco with risotto as recommended by the waiter and it was very good. Tender in a rich sauce and good quantity too. Washed down with wine. Very enjoyed dinner...

My husband and I ate here twice in a recent trip to Milan. It is one of very few Italian restaurants in China Town and happened to be the restaurant closet to our hotel. The first night we had pasta and it was excellent and the second evening we had meat dishes that were good but not great. I recommend... More

The restaurant is a classical of the city since long time but lately i think it lost it s glamour. The food is good and they can accomodate couples but also large groups, i ve seen tourist in and less people from Milan...

Very cosy place with excellent food, where the waiters, unusually, let you eat in your own pace and finish your wine in peace, allowing your stomach to settle and make room for the extrordinary sorbet icecream they serve. Not the cheapest place we've been to, but so far the best! Certainly a place we shall visit every time we are... More

We took a table for 9 and had various dishes that were not to bad but that's the best to say about it. The significant ray of light was the risotto that accompanied the osoboco. Also the whine was nice which kept the atmosphere good.

I am used to have dinner here from decades and never disappointed. You will not find cheap food but it is always tasty and in a cozy atmosphere. There is also free parking for restaurant customers just on the other side of the street. Very good for a couple dinner.

Popped in here at around 9pm after going for a drink in the heart of Milan. Found it to be complete empty which was surprising for a Friday night, as everywhere else seemed to be buzzing- but we wanted to come here as we had past it so many times that we were really intrigued. The service by the waiters... More

We ate here on 16 May. The restaurant is traditional and the food is well cooked and presented. There is a well stocked wine cellar and the service is friendly and well judged. A positive experience and worth visiting.

Our first dinner at Al Vecchio Porco the was so fantastic that we ate there each evening of our 3 days trip to Milan (2 adults + 2 girls). We tried each time different dishes - and loved them all. The best surprise was the amazing (innocent looking) Pasticceria Napoletana Cake ! Very kind people.
