Il Delfino is one of my local restaurants and i have to say a serious place to eat. Well priced, great personal service and fantastic food. Personally i love the steaks here... always well cooked. Lovely people, clean restaurant and easily obtains a 5 for me! I will keep coming back :)

Today the restaurant was beautiful with the blue skies outside, and the fresh seafood pasta was spectacular. My husband has been coming to this restaurant since 1987. As we spoke to the family-run owners, they have perfected the calm-tranquil lunch. This was a very lovely place for "pranzo". It is quietly tucked into a courtyard and does not take "lunch... More

We had the tagliatelle with mushrooms and porcini, which was very good. The main course was steak fiorentina and even though this restaurant is known for its fish, this steak was very good too. We finished with tiramisu, delightful. Service was very nice and quick.

Family owned cozy and nice place, the food is really good, the service is fast and prices are honest. I particularly liked the starters and green gnocchi.

Have family living in Milan and this is the place all locals know as the best for seafood in the city. They know the owners for years and never ask to see the menu but trust the owner to bring the freshest and best. If you want the best seafood in Milan this is the place to go. PS: Funny... More

Went with my daughtehrs for dinner based on the reviews. The service was very slow and we constantly had to chase the waiters. The pasta was Ok, but than half an hour after we waited for the meat they realised they don't have that dish left, had to replace to something else they recomend which was horrible

The food was average, we had squid ink risotto and a beef cut. The beef was pretty disappointing considering they didn't ask how we wanted it done, the risotto was creamy but the lack of any seafood or accompanying food apart from the rice made the dish seem quite lacklustre. But the lady serving us and the 2 males were... More

The food was great. Risotto at ink cuttle and salmon. Very well cooked and delicious. But a misunderstanding make them bring a full bottle for one... English level is insufficient

The food here is very fresh, tasty and well prepared. It is rather a neighbourhood restaurant, do not expect interior design but frozen in time. We shared a whole fish (there are several options to be prepared for 2 only), delicious. Wide range of fresh fruit for dessert, good change after a whole week of chocolate-based ones. Pleasant service. Recommended.
