La location è prestigiosa: Acanto è il ristorante gourmet del 5 stelle Hotel Principe di Savoia, con ingresso indipendente rispetto a quello dell’hotel. Marmi, lampadari di Murano, specchi, alzatine, argenti e porcellane per la mise en place parlano di eleganza ed esclusività. I tavoli in veranda, con vista sul bel giardino all’italiana, sono un ulteriore plus. Per celebrare serate esclusive (per un massimo di 6 persone, su prenotazione) esiste anche il private dining Tavolo Cristallo: un’area separata da un da un velo di cristallo Swarovski dove gli ospiti sono seguiti da un ambassador dedicato, che si occupa di ogni aspetto di una esperienza gastronomica che viene “cucita” su misura in base alle richieste dell’ospite. Sommelier e personale di sala sono impeccabili e puntuali, come si conviene a una meta di fascia alta, destinazione business o leisure, ma molto apprezzata anche da una selezionata clientela milanese.

Lo chef Alessandro Buffolino, beneventano, ha al suo attivo prestigiose esperienze in Italia e Francia, che si ritrovano in piatti mediterranei, che spaziano fra creatività e tradizione attualizzata. La qualità è protagonista, così come l’eleganza nella presentazione in tavola. Oltre al menù à la carte, lo chef propone un percorso degustazione gourmet composto da sei portate. Il tutto a 90 euro che passano a 120 con in vini giusti in abbinamento a ogni portata. Fra i signature dish, il Pacchero cacio e pepe con ricordo dell’ossobuco, l’Astice fumé e Questa non è una Caprese, il piatto a sorpresa che sembra una semplice insalata di pomodori, ma in realtà è un trionfo di mango, foie gras e pepe verde. A pranzo è disponibile la formula business da 35, 49 e 60 euro.

We made a reservation for 9pm on a Friday night and were able to be seated quite easily. The environment is very classy and we ordered two appetizers--I had the scallops and my date had the shrimp. The scallops were great but the sauce which the gelatin sauce which the shrimp lays in is really overpowering and unpleasant. We sent it back and they removed it from the bill which is the right move.


For the main entrees, my date had the lamb loin and I had the Irish beef. Both were really incredible and perfectly cooked and seasoned. We didn't have any dessert so can't comment on it.


The price for the two of us, with drinks, was less than 200 Euros which can't be beat. Will definitely return.

Excellent food in a classy but not too stuffy environment. Portion size varies but could be 20% bigger.

Everything was good except the over charge of the bill, they charged 2 more bottles of mineral water which cost 11€/bottle because after a nice Five course dinner for our family I didn’t check the bill and my husband paid the bill but I realized it only when I saw the bill next day. It is not nice feeling also it is very disappointing after the nice dinner and good evening that my family has that night. We actually was thinking about to go back next time for another good evening but now I don’t think so because if one bottle was over charged, I can think as a mistake but just because we were party of 5, they automatically charged 5 bottles of a large mineral water? We spent €570 and we were happy until I found out the overcharging fact and we are disappointed.

We had the all inclusive tasting menu with wines. Very good with very very good fresh products but for such kind of restaurant, something was missing in the plates... no “waouh effect”...

The chocolate trilogy was good but not transcendant...

Very interesting wines.

The service was nice but not with the kind of attention we might expect for this kind of standing.

It was the day l arrived at Milano. Because of the jet lag, (and I also forgot my alarm) I woke up 40minutes after the reservation. I went to the restaurant as soon as I could which was 1hour late. The waiter was nice and sweet. They kindly welcomed me.
The food was awesome. I enjoyed every food, especially beef and shrimp was perfect. The price was much cheaper than expected. I had very nice dinner for the first day. The volume was way too enough but I ate them all. Thank you very much! Great restaurant!!
