Fortunately I booked in advance, this place was busy all night! The atmosphere and music were great. They have a full aperitivo buffet with at least 15 different dishes, both carnivore and veggie friendly. Drinks were great, I enjoyed the 'Mediteranneo' cocktail. Although I prefer bars located on the Naviglio Grande, I would return to Movida because of the great... More

You walk around in Milan and everyone offers you the same. But come here if you want the true taste of the progressive Italian culinary experience. From the barman to the chef have the tricks folded up their sleeves. You can opt this place for a fine evening or nice hangout for some drinks, from the finest liquors to the... More

We had a good meal with friendly staff and a good choice of menu. Enjoyable meal - pity about condition of the canal ( not the restaurants problem!)

Just on the Naviglio Pavese! Started with Aperol Spritz served in big glasses, the largest I had ever seen! Very friendly staff tasty food and nice music. We tried lamb with potatoes and pasta with gamberi. The restaurant is besides the bar where they serve the aperitivo & buffet milanese formula. I recommend.
