If you want to be sure 100% to eat very good fish, do not hesitate! The raw fish "antipasti" is simply great, I do not like to much the seafood (but this is personal), the fried "calamaretti" are amazing, and do not forget the "vellutata di ceci"... Price is at the level of quality.. so expect the top!!

The most amazing raw seafood I have ever tried... and after this appetiser, a big amazing fresh piece of fish baked simply in the oven with vegetables!! The food is really special here and the atmosphere cannot be more milanese style, as well as the clients, an amazing discovery!!

The owner is a very sympathetic guy, who does everything possible to make you feel at home in his little fish paradise. We had dinner here with a group of 8 and enjoyed it immense. The only negative: we had too much. The raw fish starter is amazing, the pasta great and the immense Sea Bas (baked in salt) was... More

The fish was excellent, but we made the mistake of allowing the waitress to choose our dishes. The food that arrived, though very nice, was not what she had told us would come, and appeared to be significantly overpriced on our bill. It was a shame and spoiled what was otherwise a very pleasant meal.

The street appearance of a modest restaurant completely unprepared me for the culinary treat that was to follow. My host, a work colleague and resident of Milan, has been coming here for years and obviously was well known by the Owner. We received wave after wave of expertly prepared fish and seafood appetizers - including several raw dishes - that... More

Best place in Milan where you can get fresh seafood. Recommended by a friend, we had the raw seafood - red prawns, langoustines, squid, oysters and seafood spaghetti pasta for mains. As a life long seafood lover, it doesn't get any better than this!

I visited with colleagues from Milan that have been dining out at Ristorante Charmant since it opened. It's a wonderful local seafood restaurant that serves dishes cooked simply but incredibly well. I'd highly recommend shellfish: mussels, shrimps, clams and lobster. Perfect. I'd love to return.

Given the great reviews below there is really no need for another one. Yet Charmant really has become my favourite seafood restaurant and every time I am in Milan I keep coming back. The place is not fancy and is owned by a nice Italian man Rocco (not sure if I spell it right) Most seafood are from the south... More

Wow! What a meal. I've eaten here twice now and I would detour through Milan to eat here again. Absolutely fabulous. Fresh fish and seafood in a comfortable setting; gracious hosts and waitstaff. Excellent wine, very fair prices and a terrific grappa to end with. What could be better?

Thank DJsdad
