I loved my meal at this restaurant. I had the tasting menu, and while I could see how some of the dishes on the menu might not be to everyone's liking, I loved them. Expect a leisurely, creative meal. Remember - this kind of food does not come cheap! Prices are in the average-high range.

Restaurant was recommended by food connoisseur in Milan. Expectations were low. The place is very modern and just a few tables. The tasting menu we chose was superb and the service outstanding.
This place presents a fresh approach to the Milan cuisine.

Everybody seems to love this restaurant. And there are surely very positive points about.
The service is impeccable.
The decor is agreeable.
Certainly some of the dishes we had were very good...
But others I found tasteless.
To be honest, I don't really remember all the dishes but:
The lobster was ok, I was not floored.
The tripe was very good.
The pigeon was a real deception.
The small desserts they offered, because we could not order anymore, were not very good, rather tasteless.
The wine, advised by the sommelier was also a disappointment.

So I give a four star for efforts and encouragement, but not for my experience. I believe there are better options in Milano at the same or lesser price.

I would not recommend this restaurant.

Took my husband here as they have a vegetarian degustation menu which is always a great find. The restaurant is beautiful, service attentive and very appropriate for fine dining and the menu was more an experience than just a meal - there was a little bit of theatre about the way the food is presented which elevates the evening beyond just a meal.

The food was a lovely reminder to slow down and experience all the flavours and sensations presented. I didn't adore every dish but that was actually ok because it was such an experience which I loved. I also loved that when we ordered, the staff checked whether I was vegetarian as well and presented me with a number of fish based amuse bouche items although the overall meal remained primarily vegetarian which was perfect.

I wouldn't take children or teens here. It's grown up fine dining, a lovely experience and a rare treat for vegetarians. I wouldn't go every week but if I could, I would love to go every season when the menu changed.
