“Great happy hour!”
Reviewed 18 August 2013 via mobile

We went at happy hour because it had been suggested to us by our friend who lives in Milan as being one of the best. We paid €9 a cocktail which isn't bad as you get the food as well...there was a big selection and you can go up as many times as you like. Many Italians go there for like a snack and then they will go home and cook dinner, but because we we're students on a budget we had it as our dinner! The food and cocktails were all lovely and fruit was delicious. It's a great location right next to the Arco Della Pace which is beautiful at night time. The staff were friendly too :)

“Nice spritz and buffet”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

When you go to Milan, do one night of appertivo, just order a drink (around €10) and enjoy the food of the buffet for free. Living is the best place for this, had the best buffet we had. Tip: bring repellant, or mosquitoes will eat you alive

“Scortesi”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

Great location but unfriendly service. Been there with friends recently, they put a lot of pressure for the order, we ordered a few drinks, they came. Then after 2 minutes, we had justa started drinking, they told us to leave as they had to close and take away the open air tables. We had to pour our drinks into plastic glasses and return the glasses to them. Their style was a bit rude and unfriendly. Not recommended.

“"Living" Great find in Milan”
Reviewed 15 January 2013

I travel around Europe every week and discovered this bar during a trip to Milan. I was very impressed by the layout and ambience of the place. With 300 vodkas to choose from and free buffet food with each drink it was a great place to spend the evening. There were couples groups and singles in the bar and it was a very comfortable atmosphere with good music and friendly atmosphere. The concept was brilliant. One of the co owners Sebastiano was behind the bar and he was attentive but relaxed, good guy, he found a vodka I thought was a challenge for him within a few moments and I was given a sampling, of course I bought another. I can recommend Living as a bar well worth visiting.

“Don't get yourself fooled by Lonely Planet”
Reviewed 21 December 2012

We went to this place yesterday evening specifically because Lonely Planet recommended it for having an abundant aperitivo. Unfortunately we have been disappointed by the place and by lonely planet.

When we entered, the waiter asked us if we could sit down and wait at a very small table with some sort of hassocks as chairs until a table would be free. She even said a table would be available within 10 minutes. But even after an hour we were still sitting there, next to the door, so my friend was freezing. While we sat there, there were quite a few people that left. At a certain point even the table exactly next to us became available. But of course, even if we were promised a table, also that table was given to other people. When I asked for a second time if we could have a table, the waiter said she would let me know immediately when a table became free. But after that she neglected us again.

Besides that, the cocktails were poor. The food was extremely ordinary for a milanese aperitivo. Every time I went to the bar to choose food from the buffet, the plates were finished. Due to the crowdedness of the place it was quite an undertaking to get food.

So I would advice you not to be fooled by lonely planet this time. They are often right about nice places to go, but this time they were completely wrong.

Instead, go to Maya for a absolutely brilliant aperitivo!
