Un locale dallo stile che fa molto “vecchia Milano”, quella autentica. Il richiamo alla tradizione si fa chiaro fin dall’ingresso, dove è esposto un autentico velocipede. E poi muri a volta, mattoni a vista e antiche colonne in pietra, attrezzi di cucina d’epoca, che creano un ambiente suggestivo. L’anima del locale è duplice: c’è la vineria, salendo pochi gradini dalla scala d’ingresso; e qui vale la pena di fermarsi per un aperitivo e spiluccare stuzzicanti assaggi (ad esempio quelli di pesce affumicato e marinato). Scendendo invece la scala si arriva al ristorante.

Lo chef ha stilato menu incentrati sulla cucina tradizionale lombarda, resa attuale da tecniche moderne e un tocco d’innovazione, che non guasta. A pranzo il menu è snello e incentrato su proposte veloci - immancabili le insalatone miste - e preparate al momento: ad esempio l’hamburger gourmet Dogana Burger, primi piatti (anche vegetariani) o secondi alla griglia. La sera la proposta si fa più articolata: c’è il menu degustazione Tradizione Milano o vari “fuori carta” che cambiano in base alla stagione. Oppure si può scegliere dal menu à la carte, che enumera specialità come l’Insalata di nervetti, la Lingua di manzo o Oeuv 82 (crema di uovo cotto a 82°C in nido di porro). E ancora, secondo la stagione, Zuppa di cipolle, Pasta e fasoeu, l’immancabile Risotto alla milanese in tre varianti canoniche: l’originale, al salto o con l’ossobuco in gremolada. Fra i secondi, la particolare Zigogna, piatto valtellinese che consiste in uno spiedo di manzo avvolto con lardo e servito con patata al cartoccio e burro alle erbe. Nel repertorio, immancabile la Cotoletta con patate al forno e l’invernale Cassoeula. L’anima enologica del locale è spiccata, per i vini la scelta è molto ampia e vale la pena di farsi consigliare dai sommelier del locale, che la sanno lunga sul migliore abbinamento con i vini in cantina (oltre 400 etichette, fra cui i grandi produttori e un’importante presenza di vini biologici e biodinamici).

One of our best meals while touring through Italy. Very interesting and unique dishes for antipasti and primi courses. The “traditional” thick cut veal chop was incredible.,The atmosphere was very rustic and charming. And the service was spectacular.

We was 9 person and we ordererd various kind of food that we wanted to share each other. Waiters was so kind to divide every portion and served all in a lovely way. We had 2 guest with us that speak english and waiters managed it very well to explain every dish. Good quality, center location and price.

We shared a first plate of risotto with osso bucco which was excellent. The second plate of Milanese Cotoletto was also great. The wine recommendation was lovely. They gave us complimentary starters and biscotti to end with. A lovely dinner. Wish we'd known the portions were going to be that huge, though, because we'd have ordered just one course to share. Felt bad about wasting half the second course...especially because it tasted so good! Restaurants should give some indication of the size of the dish, maybe by mentioning the weight.

I really liked it and all friends of mine think the same. Service was perfect, nothing to add. The sommelier was really helpful and helped us in finding the perfect wine for the dinner, also taking into account our preferences.

Had the cheese selection and the zigogna/skewer and both were excellent. Portions are extremely generous. They also brought some complementary whitebait and a selection of breads, and offered a complementary liqueur at the end. The whole experience felt like a real insight into Milanese cuisine. The service was excellent and they were sure to explain what each bread and cheese was and where it came from. Only slight drawback was the wait for the cheese, but they were apologetic and it was definitely well worth the wait. Would heartily recommend.

Service was professional and welcoming. One small hiccup which makes you wonder: I asked for a glass of a 2004 Barbaresco wine, which was on their menu by glass. The somm. (I suppose) asked if he could suggest something else to try, which I agreed. But when I declined his suggestion and requested my first option, he stated he didn't have the 2004 Barbaresco (by glass). Como??? Regarding the food: We had the mozzarella-like cheese with truffles, tradition risotto with saffron, Tortelli pasta stuffed with cheese, and a fish special that belongs to the tuna family. With the exception of the Tortelli, which was good, everything else was bland. Even the bread was ok; it felt and tasted stale. Before departing, however, they did offer a small glass of grappa or other drink (don't remember what) on the house, which was very considerate.
