We dined at the chef's table in the kitchen and Chef Guida visited our table frequently, asked our opinions and was perfect company. The food was stunningly presented, creative and outstanding. A truly magical evening.More

I have visited it three times and the service was always impeccable. All the dishes I tried on both fish and meat were very tasty. The salads and starters are excellent. The place is very beautiful.

I flew from New York on a covid-free flight to visit a friend and we wanted to have a really special meal in Milan... we chose Seta, and wow, it was incredible! We hadn't really planned ahead so the only option available was lunch, and...it was outstanding. Because it was lunch we only ordered two courses each (plus pudding -obvs!) but the numerous canapes, amuse, pre-dessert dessert and petit fours meant that we still ate a 7 course meal! Some highlights - I want to eat those skinny, skinny breadsticks, everyday! Gazpacho with pink pepper ice cream with teeny tiny circles of beetroot that looked painted on - bright and oh so beautiful. Blue lobster with a zabaglione that was one of those dishes where you taste a bit of the sauce and your eyes light up. Spaghetti with a rich sea anemone sauce - I cleaned the plate with bread because it would be a sin to waste even a drop. We are still sighing over the rhubarb with foam and lemongrass ice-cream, I woke up thinking about candied tobacco leaves... Our server was charming, and, bless her, brought extra breadsticks! A truly wonderful lunch in Milan that we will be talking about for a very long time.More

Expectations were high when approaching in the restaurant .... Meals looked promising. The starters were great but the remaining dishes left something to be desired.. Flavors were too pronounced artificial taste everywhere, something strange , the worst two star in our life.More

We got a chef's table inside of a kitchen. That was an amazing experience. We had a chance to talk with a great chef Antonio Guida and watch his work. All team is trained as an army. Antonio controls every dish by himself. Food is...simply GREAT! Service remarkable. Well deserved 2 Michelin stars, and in our opinion a 3rd star will be well deserved as well. Highly recommended!!!More

Sitting in the courtyard at the Mandarin Oriental with a gorgeous view into the kitchen where all the magic happens, we knew we were in for a special time. Starting with glasses of Prosecco we opted for The Seta Way tasting menu together with the...wine flight. The food was just exquisite - every plate was prepared, cooked and executed with perfection. Service was sublime and it was lovely to meet the executive chef Antonio Guida who came out to talk to all the guests - a nice touch to round off a stunning special night.More

This was the third Michelin-starred restaurant my partner and I had visited in a month - I know, get us! I think out of the three, this was the best overall. The service was superb. Wine was very special, with a good selection to choose...from. Food was very delicate, very well presented. Surroundings were very nice, although our Mum (Italian Mum!) felt it lacked a bit of Italian charm and felt generically international to her, which I have to agree with but not necessarily dislike. We had the seafood tasting menu (I threw out my veganism for a night!) and it was excellent. As I've said with the other Michelin starred restaurants, in this day and age it would be good to see some vegan options appearing in restaurants like these. But that's my only tiny criticism. Superb. Ooh - the bar inside looked awesome and the toilets were really swish too! Highly recommend if you're looking for a special dinner in Milano.More
