Have been travelling around Italy for the last two weeks and have been sorely disappointed with the food. But this place restored my faith!

We had the pumpkin ravioli, the meatloaf and the Lesso (from which they get the name) everything was fantastic!!

The suggested wine the Nebbilo D'Alba 2010 was a perfect accompaniment to the food.

If in Milan this is one place you MUST try :)

The food itself was good but the service was poor. Three of our meals arrived together then the fourth came just as we were finishing. The wine was good.

Non Solo Lesso is a restaurant in an alley near by Corso Buenos Aires,on the left side, a couple of blocks before the Porta Venezia, heading towards Il Duomo.
The setting feels homey with pieces of old furniture, that was used by different crafts a couple of decades ago. The place is divided in to two parts, on one there are cute small tables for two, and on the other side a long massive table for about 16 people, so it can be uses also as a "mingle" place.
The owner is really nice and really dedicates to each customer, but it all good until we got to the food part:) The restaurant is known for its cooked meat dishes and pasta.
The appetizers are quite good but for the main course the expectations are high, due to the performance of the owner, but sadly the taste leaves you disappointed.
I would maybe pass by for the appetizers, when in the neighborhood. :)

There was a good feeling from the owner and the regulars here. Plenty of charm in the quirky decor, for what that's worth. I went at lunch; the buffet-style veggies were fabulous, and my pasta was excellent as well.

What a place. It was this little wonderful and charming restaurant with nice interior. But that wasn't the best thing about it. The service was excellent. You could sense the passion and pride they have with their food there immediately. I believe those are traits that any good restaurant should have.

The food was excellent. Their ingredients seemed of quality, and the staff (although with limited english) conveyed to us their recommendations which were not disappointing at all. The highlight of the night was their lesso (a north italian beef stew - comfort food) which was excellent and came with various dippings, from salsa, pickels, mustard to various flavoured ice creams (yes, i think I was supposed to use the ice cream as dippings, minding the language barrier). But they were amazing. Be forewarned, the lesso serving is huge! Their prosciutto with some sort of (not really sour) sauerkraut was also very good.

The staff also recommended a couple of dessert cakes which we shared. One was a millefeuile and the other, I'm not too sure. Anyways, both are also excellent.

Highly recommended, definitely one of the best experience I've had after almost two weeks travelling in Italy.
