The restaurant is very romantic and has an amazing setting. The food is delicious and the staff are great. Fabio was our waiter and he is really very professional and kind. The spaghetti pomodorro e basilico was really a success.

This place is nice and charming at first sight. That is why I chose it. However the food was mediocre and not cheap. My baccalà (stewed cod fish) was too salty. Also the cotoletta milanese of my friend was nothing special. Moreover, it was quite...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
