    Always great service, food and setting. I come here every time I’m in milan and it sums up a perfect little Italian taverna. Tables outside, affordable but brilliant wine. Try the Vongole!

    The waiters! This is what stand out for me and my friends, they were very nice and polite, and funny. The food was good and we had a lovely time. Maybe a bit pricey but it’s also located in a very high Milan area.

    Nice place with good food (big portions). We got a welcome prosecco and the waiters arranged a nice dessert selection (with candles for our daughers' birthday) Overall very good experience

    We didn’t like the vibe. It was very touristy. The food was just ok. The service was good but we won’t go back

    We enjoyed a wonderful meal at this great restaurant in the Brera district. The food was delicious. My steak was just enormous and cooked to perfection. The setting is just perfect. The food was a little pricey but don't be put off. Definitely recommend.

    We`ve looked for dinner on Sunday evening (~22-00). There were lots of empty tables on the patio. We tasted meatballs with polenta, gorgonzola gnocchi, and pizza, the food was really delicious. It was a perfect match with the wine, which was recommended by the waiter. Fantastic service, we were the latest guests and guys said that we shouldn`t be worried, take our time and enjoy the evening. So, it`s a great atmosphere place for dinner at the cozy street in Milan. Highly recommended.

    We had the dishes of the day which is a prix fixe menu for 30 euros each minimum 2 person. Which was good . I ordered osso bucco which was tasty but tough my partner had the lamb shank with roasted potatoes which was very tender. The panna cotta and fruit tart was delicious. There was a good mixture of tourists and locals sitting amongst us. The area is bustling with people and filled with restaurants every where.

    Great selection of Milanese dishes. Waiter was very welcoming attentive. Food presentation was attractive, quality high, and more than sufficient quality. My wife fully enjoyed the Gnocchi with gorgonzola cheese, and my veal scallopini fully met the traditional standards. With wine for 2, one appetizer, 2 dishes, & a shared dessert, the bill was a reasonable 80 Euro.

    Double check the final bill! You might find additional fees and charges that haven’t been mentioned at the beginning. In my case the bill was exceeded by additional 5EUR without any explanation. Despite this, food is very good.

    On the expensive side. Good food and service, but the quality to price ratio is far from outstanding.

    Very good for fish and seafood dishes. The atmosphere was lively and quite busy. You need to book in advance. We were with children and were very well accommodated, children welcome.
