The first thing I noticed was the well furnished location. Decorated with nautical elements, the restaurant is very peculiar. The staff is welcoming but few waiters didn't leave a good impression because they weren't as formal and efficient as required. Despite that, the food was excellent, with a beautiful presentation, and the wine (we tasted a Pinot Nero) was sublime.... More

Had a lovely evening. Delicious Catalan and great wine. Kitschy atmosphere. Fun with a group or family. It isn't a romantic spot howver, a nice place for great fish!

I had a fantastic dinner in this restaurant. It is specialised in seafood and fish. I recommend the house starter and after that one of the pasta dishes that they offer with prawns or crabs. Deserts are very recommendable too.

One of my favourite places in Milan, when it comes to seafood. I absolutely recommend taking lobster in catalana style, as this Italian dish they serve in Al Cuoco di Bordo worth coming back to Milan again and again. As this restaurant is popular among both tourists and locals, I advice to book a table well in advance.

I was there with friends (Chinese, Russian and German) and we ordered different dishes which were all good. We also had a seafood plate to share, which tasted so good, can only recommend for people to have at least one portion to try. The Risotto con frutti di mare was nice and also the lobster spaghetti, as well as the... More

Staying in Bicocca

Neighbourhood Profile
Although Bicocca is a peripheral district, many visitors will find it appealing. The district is enveloped by the immense Parco Nord (North Park), one of the largest parks in Europe. Inside is the theater Arcimboldi, one of the most important contemporary theaters where concerts and shows are organized. In the same area, there is the University of Milan Bicocca, whose distinct architecture rivals a movie set. Coffee shops, a multiplex and a shopping center are in the campus, along with the Fondazione Hangar Bicocca, one of the most famous museums of Contemporary Art.
