Unlike expensive restaurants in the city center, it is a place that stands out with its beautiful and satisfying products. It is recommended.

I had lunch at this place. It is well located, so close to shopping area, downtown. Place was very crowded, but I was lucky enough to get seat. Service was fast and efficient. About food, nothing special. Not expensive, though. Overall ideal for fast meals,...without spending much.More

Stop by for a glass of wine on a Sunday afternoon, bar was not crowded but service was totally unorganized, i was asked three times from different servers if I had ordered already. Finally my order came in , a large quantitative of low quality...food an a glass of flat prosecco ( not the Franciacorta i have ordered) for a whopping 15€ ( 17 usd) . Do yourself a favor and go somewhere elseMore

We were 2 persons for breakfast. We were waiting more than 30 minutes for our order which included one panini and one club sandwich (which is in the photo below). The panini was barren of ingredients and the club sandwich was not looking like the...classic club sandwich at all.More

It goes to show how terrible a meal is when the pre-packed breadsticks are the only highlight. After a good walk around Milan we found ourselves wanting some food and a rest. We had our little one with us so needed somewhere with space &...it was getting late in the afternoon so we ended up here rather than choosing to be. We were seated and space made for the pushchair. I went to change the little one but was sadden to find no changing facilities available despite the space. Our bread basket was a piece of dry bread each which no one in our party of 5 ate. Two of the party had pizza. They were decidedly average. Another friend had a very poor carbonara which was a very odd orangey-yellow colour. As for me I made the horrid mistake of ordering a lasagna. Thinking you are in Italy and you can’t go wrong with a lasagna was my first mistake. This thing arrived that had no meat, no cheese, no soul. It looked like it had been sitting round for days and was reheated. It was so flat. I was horrified. I was mortified. It was so bad it was like they were taking the mick by serving up the most terrible food possible. There was no pride or love in that food. In all my time reviewing on TripAdvisor this is literally THE worst meal I have ever had. Thankfully it was only after one of my friends told me that he saw the “chefs” taking food from the food demonstration plates and then serving it to unsuspecting customers. Shocking! AVOID. AVOID. AVOID.More

Needed somewhere to rest and have lunch Clean, reasonable welcome, the man at the exit, but the waitress obviously wanted to be elsewhere. Good selection, reasonably priced. I have the risotto with fish, the wife a beef roll. Risotto was wonderful, the glass of Pinot...to wash it down, on recommendation, very once finish.More

Visited here in the late afternoon, it was our first day in Milan so decided we would  both have pizza. Not the best pizza mine was burnt underneath and had a hair in the dough. Got two mini chocolates for the problem Wouldn't visit again...due to having a lot more restaurants around the area.More

This was our first meal in Milan after checking in to our hotel and we just wanted something quick as we were very hungry. The seating outside is all very squashed together and you are on top of other diners. Inside didn't look pleasant either...as it was half bar/half tat shop. We had a pizza and a spaghetti carbonara. The pasta was oily and not very tasty while the pizza was doughy and could have been frozen. I had a beer, which was fine, if overpriced and my girlfriend asked for lemonade. What she got was squeezed lemons - maybe something that is common in Italy but was horrible to our pallats! Overpriced for the quality of food and drink as well as location. I would avoid this restaurant as there is a lot better further into the centre of town at similar or cheaper prices.More

We have stopped there for lunch and ordered pizza and chicken for our main . Pizza was well dry and tasteless and chicken was just chewy and didn't look fresh at all. Looked like chicken had been made few days before and just been reheated...before being served to us . Very disappointed with this place. Wouldn't recommend.More
