5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2012

We had not even heard of this great little bar. We just wanted a cold drink and that is what we got, plus because we got there at the right time of day, about 6'ish, we were told to help ourselves to the buffet!!!
Wow, we didn't really believe it at first but they insisted "is gratis". The place is obviously well known by the locals as by the time we wobbled out a few hours later, the place was really full and very loud! We were the only non-Italian people there I think, but we felt at home with the other guests and it really is a nice place to mingle with the locals.

“A nightmeare”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

Maybe I'm not the right target, but this overcrowded and noisy place seemed like a nightmeare to me!
Food and drinks are preatty much what you find in an average pub.
Sloppy service, might be ok to drink a beer with your 20something friends but if you0re older than 25 you might want to consider some other places.

“Happy hour special!! Buffet included with you beer!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2011

Very popular with locals (couldn’t see any non-Italian tourists) and uni students. During happy hour until 9:30pm, pay a few euros more for your drink and you get access to the buffet! As much pasta, fish fingers, deli goods and focaccia as you want. Obviously its not gourmet, but its good food, plenty of it, it’s a hit with young Milanese and it’s a view into a non-touristy part of Milan that’s very refreshing
Look to pay between 7-9 euros for your beer or cocktail (mojitos were sweet, but plenty of mint and grog so what more do you need?) and grab your plastic plate and join the queue for the food!
