Traditional, good food, local people, friendly staff. Nice wine! We had a cheese and meat plateau for starters. Cheese where exquisite, especially the stracciatella with white truffles and with the barbaresco wine (€39). For main course I had a risotto with ossobuco and polenta, which I shared with my daughter's steak. Dessert was Italian chocolate cake with vanilla cream and... More

The food here was good, not the most memorable meal I've ever had, but very satisfactory indeed. We came here at the recommendation of a local as a spot near Porta Garibaldi Station in Milan and were happy with the food and service. I ordered a pork Milanese dish, and the portion was huge! The meat was quite good, and... More

I came to the restaurant because of my friend's recommendation. My first impression was actually quite good with the service and atmosphere. But then I realized that they hardly understood English at all. I ordered a risotto with veal marrowbone (20 euros), then they brought me a plain risotto with nothing else. I was wondering what a dish! because the... More

Good food, good service, good prices. Mostly locals eat here, which is nice to find as a tourist. The menu is mostly modern variants of classic favorites.

just by luck and intuition we stepped in, during the week of the Salone del Mobile in Milan...we were 4 hungry designers from 4 different countries and it was an excellent meal indeed! Prices are very cheap compared to the quality and the service was very friendly. Hope to be able to visit again!

The restaurant serves traditional style food but the menu is rather limited. The quality didn't quite live up to my expectations. Not bad at all but there are better options.

It's like a person you meet who's face you will then struggle to remember. My report: - food: Italian dishes, all more than eatable, but very normal -service:friendly and overall quite good - ambient: young, loud,typical normal Italian restaurant - location: central, easy to reach, in a quite central and fashionable area, full of restaurant and bars In a nutshell:...

Neighbourhood Profile
Stazione Centrale
Central Station represents a bridge towards the future. Impressive skyscrapers and new age buildings stretch the skyline with the majestic Unicredit Tower cutting through. Surrounding it are large towers that define Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the fountain and the Monumento Trombe leave one breathless. A famous building of the district is the Vertical Forest, where the innovative materials and trees planted on the terraces are a unique mix of nature and man-made construction. In the district, there is the Monumental Cemetery, known for its antique tombs with sculptures portraying angels of commemorative scenes many will find touching.
