We were ready for a change from Italian food, and looking for an option that suited the carnivores and the herbivore in the family. This was a great meal - we were quickly and easily talked into the set menu option by the friendly and welcoming owner. The meal was fantastic - it began with hummus, babaganoush, preserved lemon, tabouleh,... More

We absolutely loved the complete menu they offered to taste the main arabian dishes. tha couscous was amazing, and the whole menu was super! big portions...I didn't finish mine:(( and affordable price. the location is not new and absolutely not fashion....but when you start to eat you will forget about it!

We were offered a good selection of appetizers that we enjoyed. We ordered falafel, riso sceicco, vegetable couscous. The rice with pistachios and other nuts was definitely the best dish of the night. It also came with a taste of potatoes filled with cheese and fried, which were also delicious. The waiter/owner is a little insistent, it's hard to refuse... More

We absolutely loved the couscous and the maze platter. What I didn't like was the service. The owner is quite chatty, but he will sell you what he actually wants you to have and won't really help you go for something else rather than the set menu (this is why I rated it with 4 and not 5 stars). I... More

the guy barely speaks Italian but manager to make you feel comfortable and not puzzle by a complicate Arabian list. Food is heavy to digest but not the chef's fault: that is Middle-East food. In exchange you get very good service from a family-owned place that likes its job: mum's in the kitchen, dad serves and sonny is at the... More

Staying in Navigli

Neighbourhood Profile
The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande. The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.
