I have visited this place first in 2008 and returned last summer (2015). It has really not changed at all and that's a good thing. The food here is down home, "local joint" cooking. The Cottoletta Milanese was perfect. Tender, pounded veal, that was lightly...More

Food was cooked well but service was a grumpy and presentation of food was not given attention. Tiramisu came in a heap. Quite unappetizing looking.

If you go to "RIFUGIO DEL GHIOTTONE" you will find the cordiality, the tradition and a first line place, where you will be welcomed like a friend in one of the most tasty and pleasant restaurant of the town. The restaurant is in the downtown Milan between the bastions of Porta Venezia and Porta Nuova and it has many guests like show -business people and in particular sporting journalists. The RIFUGIO DEL GHIOTTONE is born in the summer 1999 thanks to the collaboration of two managers, which, after many years of experience, decided to join and to do their best. For example the very good gastronomic offer: the food follows the inspiration of Mediterranean food and the Milanese tradition thanks to the long experience of the chef that harmonizes the quality and tradition. In the restaurant there will be Gilberto and Nicola that pay attention to every detail and there is a wide range of wines. The tourists can find the menu translated into English - German - Spanish - Russian- Spanish - Japanese, and all the credit cards.
