    Restaurant was very nice! My husband’s seafood past was really tasty. I had a risotto with shrimps - cooked really well but A little under seasoned. Overall a really nice place to go.

About the restaurant

NEL CUORE DI BRERA - Dal 1976, in un angolo tranquillo di Brera, sorge il ristorante Il Cestino di Milano. Un suggestivo locale dall'atmosfera intima e ricercata, con pareti rivestite in legno, luci soffuse, immagini della vecchia Milano e bottiglie in bella vista, oltre ad un comodo dehors utilizzabile in ogni stagione.

SPECIALITÀ MILANESI E NON - Lo chef propone pietanze della cucina italiana reinterpretate in chiave contemporanea, con sapori vivaci e gusti audaci, ma allo stesso tempo semplici ed eleganti, di terra e di mare, ottenuti grazie ad una ricerca estetica nei colori e nei volumi. Nel menu de Il Cestino non mancano inoltre le specialità milanesi, come i piatti unici di ossobuco con risotto giallo, o i secondi di carne classici tra cui l'orecchio di elefante. Va detto che la bontà delle pietanze servite è garantita dall'utilizzo di soli ingredienti di primissima scelta.

VINO O CHAMPAGNE - Nota di merito anche per la cantina di questo ristorante in zona Brera, che contiene le migliori etichette di vini italiani e i migliori Champagne Francesi.
