Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This restaurant is amazing! The best restaurant in Milan! The food is amazing and the sweets & meatballs are a nice touch. Really friendly atmosphere with great music. Will definitely be returning in the future when back in Milan! Try the pasta!

Went here because of reviews, ordered lasagna, caprese and ossobuko. Lasagna was very good, caprese was without pesto!!??? Ossobuko was a bit dry … If you aren’t living close to that place I wouldn’t suggest to come here… bon appetite

A very traditional restaurant with relaxed, family atmosphere. We tried the tagliatta and the ossobuco. Both were exceptional! Don't leave without trying the melloncello. Wholeheartedly recommended

A friend recommended this restaurant and we were very happy that we took her advice and went there. It is a largely local establishment with warm ambience and great food. Very friendly and welcoming even if it is off the beaten path--easily accesible by taxi...and very reasonably priced by Milan standards. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals and wine, of course, and look forward to a return on our next visit to Milan. Highly recommended.More

A fantastic place for a dinner. Unique. Purely Italian. Staff is loving what they are doing and you feel it all the time. Fried bread and meatballs as a compliment from the chef are super tasty! We tried shrimp coctail, tomato bruscheta, pasta with pulled...beef and veal with risotto. All dishes were super tasty and worth every penny. Only the salted caramel desert was way too sweet for us. Anyway, topping it with melonchello (their way of limonchello) did it 😊 Super highly recommended!More

L’immagine has a cozy, traditional restaurant ambience, which is exactly what we were looking for. Very friendly staff and great service. The antipasti were amazing, especially the steak tartare. Ossobuco was very very good. Deserts were delicious. After the meal, they treated us to two...bottles of delicious homemade digestivo, one limoncello and one meloncello. The only downside I can think of is the location, which was a bit far from the center to be honest.More

Most likely, L’Immagine is going to be a 10-15 minute taxi ride away from where you’re staying in Milan. However, this quaint, friendly authentic old school Italian restaurant is worth the short trip. $6 wines by the glass and bottles in the $25 range with...pasta plates in the teens and meat entrées in the twenties. Linda had a generous portion of perfectly grilled octopus and I had an angus beef parpadelle. We had a very nice bottle of Sicilian Firriato and our server brought a bottle of meloncello - not limoncello - for a digestif. Nice touch. The proprietor obviously takes great pride in his restaurant and his staff is very attentive and friendly. As an extra bonus, there are several candy jars on each table, placed there as homage to the owner’s childhood.More

We took a taxi from our hotel in the city center because the reviews were strong and the menu was more interesting than usual. We shared the “caprese mozzarella & burrata” which was to die for, featuring a mountain of creamy burrata, enough for four...people (we were two). A side of fried bread was brought to the table; we have had it in other Milan restaurants, and it is often ho-hum, but this one was irresistibly delicious, warm, salty, and crispy. You just couldn’t stop eating it. We shared bruschetta followed by ossobucco with risotto alla Milanese. For dessert we had chocolate soufflé and tiramisu, both perfectly made, followed by complimentary meloncello. All the servings were generous. Our meal, with two aperitivi, acqua frizzante, two glasses of wine, and all the above courses, came to 90 euros. Highly recommend this out-of-the-way restaurant with its charming interior divided into several wood-paneled rooms. The very personable owner created a welcoming environment and a fun experience.More

Our family of 5 were tired after traveling into Milan and doing some sightseeing. It was a tie between staying at the hotel or going out. Fortunately - after consulting TripAdvisor and the concierge at the hotel - we decided to go out and chose...this restaurant. Immediately the presence of local patrons vindicated our choice. Nothing fancy, just a fine clean restaurant, with excellent food, fresh and well prepared, served by an attentive staff (as well as the owners) who made you feel right at home. And the Melloncello and the candy is a tradtion at the end your stay. Don’t hesitate to dine here if you’re ever in the vicinity.More
