They are not friendly to tourists. The meat was extremely dry / under seasoned, sushi was all rice, and drinks are terrible. Service was worst. I had to ask the waiter on several occasions to come over on order for them to serve us the meat. Otherwise, they kept skipping our table to serve locals only...even though our table was... More

Went there with friends, this being my first time with Brazilian food. First we choose items from a buffet section which had a good assortment of items. After that the head waiter comes along with various skewers of different kinds of meat and carves you off one or two slices. Some of the meats were in fact quite tasty. Perhaps... More

Visited here second night in Milan as it was just round the corner from our restaurant. Been to similar style restaurants in the UK but this was delicious and had a larger selection of meats. All cooked to perfection and as it was quiet, constantly coming out so full really quickly.

The Anti pasti were to die for - almost did not want the meet that came with the buffet we were served. Food was hot the meat well cooked and as said earlier the anti pasti especially the range of veg were great. Lovely stuff and you don't get ripped off for drink

Nice cocktails but thats pretty much it. The anti-pasti buffe was ok. The meat served afterwards tasted absolutly nothing! So if you want to get full on untasty meat & fries this is the place for you!

From the very beginning I knew this was going to be a memorable experience. Very friendly and welcoming staff, who explained the menu and how things would proceed. Anti pasta selection was varied and catered for all tastes. Outstanding selection of well presented cooked meats, from sausages through chicken all the way to fine cuts of prime steak. A varied...

Just a perfect, relaxed venue with a buffet starter that has something of everything all done a little different followed by the meats. Skewered, grilled and carved at the table covering 10 styles of meat!! Delicious, fun and true value at 22 Euro per person and drinks very well priced.Great friendly service. Eat, relax and enjoy and I'm sure the... More

Really friendly welcome with a good explanation of how the Brazilian barbeque experience works. Our waiter was very patient as we stumbled along with our basic Italian despite speaking fluent English! The starter was a wide choice of cold & hot salads followed by table service of the various meats.The pace was just right - not hurried and we were... More

Can't argue with the proximity to our Hotel - Sanpi (right next door.) Friendly staff, very good selection of starters on the buffet and the constant supply of variosu meat cuts all carved off the spit at the table was great. Well recommended

We found this restaurant through pure luck as it was next to the hotel we were staying at (Hotel Sanpi) and i'm so glad we did! Special offer on at the time which included a set menu of a buffet starter which was ok but then the main meal was Meat, and lots of it! Staff brought sides out to... More

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.
