After a delicious lunch we later during our stay in Milan came back here for dinner. And we where equally happy for several reasons: a relaxed atmosphere, great Italian dishes, friendly service and not a touristy feeling in general.

Dear President, we want to thank you for your review, it was very kind from you to share with us your positive impression. Accept our best regards!

The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient
days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar
to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the
Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are
two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande.
The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk
with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes
in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns
