We were in Milan for the weekend and wanted a nice dinner away from other tourists and came across Il consolare after some searching. After reading it's mainly a locals spot and they spoke broken English we knew it was what we were looking for....More

Had a lovely dinner here - they didn't have the wine we ordered and the substitute was slightly less dry than I would have liked, but was perfectly drinkable. Lots of locals rather than tourists, which is always a good sign.

Make the effort to find it. Walk in through the door and plea for a table. They are so accommodating in what YOU want to eat and on portion size. We came out replete! Wines very reasonable and excellent service.

I have been coming to this restaurant since I have been a little kid. I really find this place one of the top place to eat fish in Milan. Super high quality and fresh fish. You will love it.

Good food with a varied menu and very friendly service. We had mixed starters with very good fish and then a mix of pasta, risotto and sea bass. Good choice of wines. Bathrooms in need of some (a lot) of modernisation.

If you want fish while visiting Milan....THIS is the place to go. It is NOT for people looking for a bargain but it is worth every euro.

Brera captures the real essence of the city. It is an
excellent mix between history and modernity, where
tradition meets innovation. Here design and beauty
reign. On Via Brera there are the famous Pinacoteca
(galleries), the National Gallery of Modern and
Antique Art, and the Academy of Fine Arts. Interior
design boutiques and intellectual cafes are typical of
the district. Walking along Via Madonnina is a must to
