We ate here on the last night of our Italian vacation. We walked in and were immediately greeted and seated near the front of the restaurant. That was too bad as there's a cool rock covered wall in the back, but it was full. The server immediately came to make recommendations on food and wine. He was incredibly helpful at making wine recommendations to go with each course - even begging us off a more expensive bottle for a cheaper one when he said our selection wouldn't go well with the main courses.

The food was incredibly unique and creative, and most of the food came out perfectly. One or two dishes weren't as good as others - although still very good and only lesser in comparison. They have an option for a 7 course tasting menu. We ended up not ordering that but each ordered most of the courses and shared. The portions were bigger and we still got most of what we wanted to taste.

The dinner was very Italian. We sat down around 8:30PM and didn't get up until after midnight. This meal was all in all a phenomenal meal. We wouldn't hesitate to come back.

It's my second review about this place but I can't refrain from writing some compiments. It was my last dinner in Milan after some negative expirience in other places. And I was absolutely satisfied with it. Food here is excellent. It's foodie paradise. Choice of wine is wide with different vintages. Decoration is very unusual (not for the classics lovers). So just lots of thanks to Francesco Pasalaqua. Definitely come back again.

Interesting decoration in a restaurant located in a residential area of Milano. The best plate was the appetizer and the dessert, the main courses (gnocchi and risotto) were mediocre. Expensive for what you get. For me doesn't worth to go to that area that is a bit isolated for this restaurant.

Very friendly staff welcomed us in this local restaurant, which is not a touristic place at all ! An explosion of different flavours comes to your mouth with the simple but beautifully prepared dishes. We really wanted to try the risotto, however it was not on the menu. But the chef made it especially for us ! we had such a great time at this place, so we will be back for sure. The chef Francesco greets his distinguished guests after dinner which is so nice. Prices are average to high, though quite normal for Milano I guess. We warmly recommend this place !
