Just about able to get a table as most were reserved due to the half marathon being on. Weren't sure of set up but on our visit, it was a set Brunch menu for 20 Euro, you could help yourself to the buffet inside, as much as you wanted. You then chose a main, we both had club sandwich. You... More

Business diner in this restaurant in the center of Milan. Large buffet with Italian specialities. I tested most of the meal and the food was fresh and testy. Reasonable of choice of drinks, and concept intersting (you pay for the drink and you can eat what you want....). Efficient service, nice environment but very noisy place.

If you are planning to grab a drink and have a quick bite in a real Milanese place, that's the one! It is always very crowded so you might wait a bit before having a seat. A wide buffet is served from 19.00 and you can have it once you had a drink for a reasonable price of 10€ The... More

Liked the location. Drinks are good. Staff is friendly. Judt refrain from the urge to visit the bath rooms. Most train station toilets are cleaner than what I've seen here. Tip to the management: don't spoil a great place by saving money on service for the facilities...

Good for a short stop. Maybe the food was good? Drinks were fine. Nothing stand out so just 3/5 from us. Sorry. Inside looked promising. Maybe worth a punt.

For aperitivo Deseo is a very good option. They make a good cocktail and have a great selection of food available on the buffet. Although not the largest of selections the food is fairly high quality compared to others.

Food and drinks ok, in general good place for aperitivo, but not exactly my style: not enough choice and music a bit too loud. Personally I prefer more casual atmosphere.

I stumbled upon this place one sunny evening just in time for Aperitivo. They make a good Spritz and have a great buffet. The food is mainly "freezer" type food but there is a good selection and lots of salads and pasta too so it's a great option. I would say that if you're coming to Milan and want to... More
