Couldn't believe it, right in front of our eyes they cooked all our meals in three microwaves which are positioned right behind the bar in full view!! - and my lasagne had to go back as it was still cold! So disappointing as this was the last meal in Italy after some excellent experiences in Rome and Milan. It may... More

Although it has nice cousin I should mention that staff is welcoming and can speak English very good, so no problems with ordering what you want, but not what you've agreed to get after getting tired of negotions.

We were staying at Uptown Palace and looked on TripAdvisor for somewhere local to eat. This place came up. So glad we went. Down a little side street we had never noticed before. Full of locals, which is always a positive and great service!! If in Milan and near by, it's worth a visit.

I live near by and I had lunch with my gf today after long time I was not visiting that bar and I remained really disappointed. The rice was clearly warmed up and the salad (15euros) was disgusting. I will never go back. 30euro for lunch for that kind of food is a joke.

Great way to end the day. The happy hour starts at 6 till 8:30 PM and you get small bites if you buy drinks. But be there early as it is very small.

We stumbled across the place as it was close to our hotel and one of the few cafes open at night. We were treated very well at this establishment and were even provided with complimentary appetizers while we drank our wine. Some of the best wine I have had in Milan and very good service. The place is a little... More

We were there by chance because our hotel was nearby. It's a nice cosy place only a few seats inside most are outside. Where people may smoke. (But no probably at all because the aeration is good) service very friendly and Quick and speaks very good English. Don't order a bottle of the 15€ prosecco, it simply not good. The... More

Close to our hotel, this was a great find for us after 20 hours of travel. Fantastic coffee, tasty breads and pastries, plus friendly attentive service. This would have been a definite revisit had we not been just overnighting.

In a wonderful little street just a few minutes from the city center a tiny very nice bistro which I fell in love into. Excellent lunch, you can choose from pasta (not the speciality) to hamburger to the delicious carpaccios, the real plus of the place. Good food, good atmosphere, reasonable prices: that's Italy, or at least this is the... More
