Visited this restaurant for Sunday lunch. As a couple we were originally asked to sit squashed up against a heater even though the whole outside area was empty. It was obvious as we ate our lunch that the locals were treated very differently to tourists. Food was quite edible but we were made to feel most unwelcome.

Frequented by beautiful people especially in periods of fashion week. Just a short walk from Corso Como serves well cooked you can combine a wide selection of wines. Good the matriciana pasta and the Citeletta alla Milanese. The prices compared to other restaurants in Milan are not high.

Been on a weekend in Milan with some friends and found this restaurant by accident the night before we left. Decided it looked good and popular so had a meal on the last night. Great idea! Beautiful beef fillet, perfectly cooked! Bit pricey compared to other restaurants in locality, but worth it!

Service: 10/10 Atmosphere: 8/10 Furniture: 7/10 Cleanliness: 9/10 Welcoming: 10/10 Taste: 8/10 This visit was unplanned, however, it was a good decision. I don't know why, the restaurants in this neighborhood have the tendency towards having very dimmed atmosphere. But this one lights up hundreds of candle lights to lit up the place. Personally I felt very warm, regardless of... More

I went there with 5 friends, we really enjoyed this restaurant. It is true that it is a bit expensive for Milan but the waiters were extremely nice and the food was good. In addition to that, the atmosphere is cozy with nice music which made you wanna stand up and dance!

A very nice place, I go there regularly for lunch. The food is always good, both the fish and the meat. The waiters are also friendly. You should also try their focaccia bread, but pay attention you could become addicted to it :)

Been there was not impressed at all. Spaghetti with Vongole and bottarga just doesn't make sense as bottarga covers the taste of Vongole and pasta becomes over salty. Salmon with a teriyaki sauce was not bad but sauce was dry over the fish like it was post-heated and kept in ready for hours... Slow service kitchen did not keep pace... More

we went to this supposed-to-be-cool bistro with a group of friends and the dinner turned out to be a really bad experience. food was good but avarage and absolutely overpriced. the dishes were served randomly and at least 3 of our orders (out of 12) were missing or wrong. but the worst parto of the night was the incredibly rude...

€84 for one fish tartar, one meat stick and one salad plus two glass of mediocre wine. Food is not bad, but price definitely too high. No value money.

Neighbourhood Profile
Stazione Centrale
Central Station represents a bridge towards the future. Impressive skyscrapers and new age buildings stretch the skyline with the majestic Unicredit Tower cutting through. Surrounding it are large towers that define Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the fountain and the Monumento Trombe leave one breathless. A famous building of the district is the Vertical Forest, where the innovative materials and trees planted on the terraces are a unique mix of nature and man-made construction. In the district, there is the Monumental Cemetery, known for its antique tombs with sculptures portraying angels of commemorative scenes many will find touching.
