Santa Monica cafe: California-style restaurant in downtown Milan. Delicious burgers, Mexican food, pizza served on surfboard, broadcasting sports events, especially football games, and karaoke night every weekends. For lunch the restaurant becomes a large self-service with typical Italian cuisine. The Santa Monica also offers bar service and take-away for customers in a hurry.
