Party of 4 (business collegeus) and we had the slight feeling of being "measured up" by staff on arrival. We passed the test (and had a reservation!) and were offered choice of indoor / outdoor table, which was nice. Service started relatively slow, but once they tuned into us (after serving the small appetizer before the wine arrived) they did a fantastic job on service, advice and performance. The waiter was really knowledgeable an very accommodating to our questions and wishes. The food was awesome, really fresh seafood, perfectly cooked with nice and varied flavors and styles. Not the cheapest place in Milan, but absolutely worth the money. Go there if you need great seafood in a nice restaurant.

My boyfriend and I were wandering around trying to find a good place to eat as everything was booked out for Mother's Day. We were recommended Pier 52 by another Michelin guide restaurant down the block and decided to give it a try although the prices seemed high and we were really looking for casual dining.
We were blown away by the intense, delicious flavors in every dish!
We started with a 30€ bottle of Gewürztraminer wine which was crisp and flavorful. I should note that we were offered a glass of prose do on the house upon our arrival, also very tasty and not overly sweet.
The staff was also accommodating to my boyfriends gluten allergy and suggested they can prepare dishes to be gluten free if possible.
We ordered the tuna tartare starter and the grilled octopus on stracciatella.
While we waited they brought us a tomato gazpacho with mozzarella cubes that was to die for! We have been traveling in Italy for the past month and I have to say this is one of the tastiest dishes I've had so far!!
The tuna tartare was of the highest quality and flavor and the octopus was cooked to perfection. Both super flavorful and fresh.
While the portions were small (starters), we weren't looking for big portions but rather quality.
I would highly recommend a visit to Ristorante Pier 52 for a delicious, high quality meal in a very nice ambiance.
Good, soothing music played in their well lit and decorated space. The staff was very attentive and friendly as well.
I don't often leave reviews but this place was definitely worth it. As New Yorkers who love to travel and eat well, we will be coming back!

Was recommended Pier 52 from restaurant IYO when they couldn't accommodate us - Still exited to try IYO but Pier 52 is now on my top 5 best restaurant list for Milan. We simply had the grilled octopus with stracciatella cheese and it was incredible, the octopus very flavorful and grilled to perfection! Haven't had better since living in Greece 20 years ago! Also had the tuna tartar, it was very simple dish with the best quality ingredients, tuna was fatty, flavorful and of the highest grade with a simple lemon vinaigrette made with perfectly ripe lemon and high quality olive oil. Cherry on the top was our bottle of wine, a 2013 Gewürztraminer from Zöhlhof, excellent and complex. The restaurant is self is very romantic and has a warm feeling due to the decor and perfect lighting (rare find in Italy strangely enough) and very last but not least, great music. Exited to come back...

Too expensive for the quality of the food.
I had pasta with mushrooms & fish. The pasta was not good ( v salty ) the fish was not tasty and watery. Pity as the place looks nice.
