Had a great, very authentic lunch at Solferino's. Very attentive staff who are very knowledgeable about their food and wine, has a family run atmosphere. Food was superb. Happy to recommend to everybody and will definitely be back. It is on the more expensive side, but given the fantastic fresh ingredients and the great service it is to expect.

When you look at my previous comments, you'll see I'm a difficult man. I rate this restaurant 5 stars, good food by itself is not enough, Service was perfect; I mean our waiter was there only when needed, with useful suggestions, and when you think you are self sufficient, he was gone. It is important for me because I don't like it when someone insists do that don't do that etc.
Variety of wines, from maybe 15-20 Euros to 1500 Euros, warm atmosphere, reasonable prices (considered you eat one of Milano's most advised restaurants) good food; and I just booked a table through tripadvisor; bingo! A good table was ready.
Nothing to complaint but if my feedback is asked, I'd use less sugar in desserts but this is a very personal choice of course.
Thank you for everything!

Warm ambiance + traditional delicious food + friendly, entertaining service = one enjoyable evening. Our family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here on our first visit to Milan. We were recommended by the concierge at the Excelsior Gallo and we were not disappointed. The restaurant was filled with locals with only a few tables of tourists the night we were there. The atmosphere was cozy and despite being quite full, wasn't overly loud. Our server, Enzo, was very helpful and fun, joking and chatting with us through the evening. The fresh, homemade pasta was divine, as was the wine we selected off their extensive list. All in all, a great experience to kick off our Italian vacation!
