My husband and I were recommend via hotel and were not disappointed. Very cool, quiet vibe, Dined outdoor under tent. Very cool surrounding neighborhood. Was not busy that night. Had a delicious meal, salad and pasta and veal.. All superb. We loved it so much we went back a second night of our stay in Milan and they remembered us.. As Americans we found both food and wine prices to be very reasonable. Outstanding service provided by Vito, Nadia, Guido and Vincenzo!. If ever in Milan again,, we will be back..

We can hardly believe anyone being disappointed with this restaurant. We had an excellent experience when dining there last week. We enjoyed our first experience so much that we went back two nights later. It is not a fancy place but it has a quaint Italian ambience created by its decor. The staff are very friendly and efficient. Everything was so tasty with authentic Italian cooking using the best of ingredients. We didn't think it was expensive. For example one of the most expensive dishes we had was Lobster with spaghetti at a cost of €21. Try and find a restrauntant in Britain serving half a lobster with anything and you'll pay a lot more for it. Even in expensive restaurants Lobster can be a bit disappointing if not cooked properly. The Lobster served up in the Antica Osteria Stendhal melted in the mouth.

This place was recommended by an Italian friend and we were not disappointed. We sat outside on the terrace as it was such a beautiful night. My daughter is a huge truffle fan and the menu had a great selection of dishes that contained truffle. The zucchini risotto with truffle oil needs a special mention, as it was sublime. Also really good wine list. Waiters were really lovely.

Was aiming for a quick lunch however the food took forever! Anyhow, it was definitely worth the wait. The best carbonara I have ever had! Also, their summer truffle menu is worth the try however very basic. I would definitely go again as it is one of the most authentic and original milanese restaurants in this "vibrant district" of Brera!

One waiter was super arrogant (the old one) no sense of service and complain about what people order in Italian. It's unfortunate when you do understand what is says.
Food is just barely ok, at least you won't be hungry but you will get watery vegetables and tasteless risotto.
Clearly this restaurant focus on extracting the maximum amounts from tourists that they think cannot make the difference between a good meal and a bad one.
Finally when you get the overcharged (90€ for 2) bill what you see first is "SERVICE NOT INCLUDED......TIP AMOUNT...". For those who do not know service is always included in Italy and there is a minimum salary to give to your employees. But I guess it's a good way to get a bit more from tourists.
Overall don't go there, you will get better food elsewhere for half the price.
