This very spartan, celebrities photos-filled osteria is specifically about Apulian cuisine. Which means, pasta ("orecchiette", especially) and grilled vegetables/meat/cheeses. There's an area with lots of appetizers/salads that works like a buffet but you can also order a la carte before/after having enjoyed it.
We didn't though, the appetizers didn't look that fresh. Which was confirmed by the stale "panzerotti" we were offered after taking our seats that came straight from the buffet. On the contrary, the pasta, sausages and grilled cheese tasted very genuine, very close to what I use to eat in Apulia in small, family-driven restaurants. The green salad came from the buffet table and it was average. I suppose if you want to eat cheaply, you are going to be served cheaply. Stick with the a la carte menu if you want a real taste of Apulian cuisine.
The restaurant is averagely priced (9-12€ for pasta, 9-15€ for meat/cheese) for Milan and I've eaten much worse at higher prices.
Downsides: water and wine are overpriced. Be warned. Bread doesn't taste great (but this can be said for 99% of Milan restaurants too...). Buffet is cheap (but you save some money, your choice if it's worth). The owner has an egocentrical personality (nothing of concern to you as a guest but he looks like he's playing "master and slave" with the waiters).
Overall, good; if wasn't for the things listed under downsides it would be very good. Still recommended.
