The food was great. This restaurant has been running for 26 years, and the owner (Raafat Mohammed) was extremely friendly, and basically recommended everything we should eat. Although they gave us way too much for two people, the food was good. The falafel was great.

We absolutely loved the couscous and the maze platter. What I didn't like was the service. The owner is quite chatty, but he will sell you what he actually wants you to have and won't really help you go for something else rather than the...More

the guy barely speaks Italian but manager to make you feel comfortable and not puzzle by a complicate Arabian list. Food is heavy to digest but not the chef's fault: that is Middle-East food. In exchange you get very good service from a family-owned place...More

The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient
days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar
to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the
Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are
two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande.
The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk
with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes
in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns
