Sabato sera, passeggiata romantica.. il cameriere ti interrompe chiedendoti se vuoi fare un abbondante aperitivo.. e pensi: assolutamente, siamo a Milano, la terra dell'happy hour!
MAI commesso un errore più grande. Due spritz arrivati dopo solo 15 minuti, accompagnati da patatine e noccioline erano l'abbondante aperitivo. Anzi, una cosa abbondante c'era: il conto.
24 euro per due Spritz! Complimenti!!!

Saturday night, romantic walk .. the waiter interrupts you asking if you want to make a generous appetizer .. and you think, absolutely, we are in Milan, the land of happy hour!
NEVER made ​​a bigger mistake. The two spritz arrived after only 15 minutes, accompanied by potato chips and peanuts wich were the generous appetizer. Indeed, one thing was abundant: the bill.
24 € for two Spritz! Congratulations! PLEASE STAY AWAY

This is not far from the Duomo.

Went here the day we arrived in Milan and didn't know where the decent places were.

This place is rubbish.

Mediocre food. High prices.

I doubt their poor TA reviews will affect them as it's the sort of place tourists stumble on as there's a heavy foot fall nearby.
However, it's still worth me trying to warn others.
Avoid, avoid.

terrible! Wish I had used the TripAdvisor app on my phone before going in here. Let that be a lesson to you all - if you are trying a new restaurant - check it first. The reviews here are right on - hard to believe this place is still in business for food service. May be good for coffee and a pastry but I would not risk it...

The worst lunch we have ever had in Italy! The waiters are rude, prices high and the meals are disgusting. I wonder how this restaurant can still exist... Maybe just because of the locality but I recommend to everyone: avoid this restaurant and run away from this place. I ordered gnocchi a quattro formaggi and it tasted like potatoes with a cheese " la mucca che ride"...
