The owner wasn't willing to answer our questions about the way our dish was prepared. The food isn't bad but expect bad service if the owner serves you (the younger staff were friendly) and expect a menu that's probably remained the same since the 70's...More

This place, stuck down a side street, was recommended to me by a local and is run still by an owner who I believe is in his 80s. It had a very friendly, laid-back atmosphere, with an old fashioned decor, and was populated otherwise by...More

This is a typical old fashioned Milan-style place, very down to earth, simple setting, as it could have looked 50 years ago; the patrons of this restaurant are only those who have a nostalgic longing for tradition: the menu is exclusively local fare, very very...More

Food is deliciuos but too expensive. It's not possible to spend 30euros for a cotoletta alla milanese. I went for a pate' de la maison and risotto saltato but I was more hungry then before.Decadence.

The restaurant is in a back street and the only big room is intimidating when it is almost empty. The menu is old-style, but with prices higher than you'd expect (eg. the risotto is just 3 euro cheaper than fancy restaurants in the centre of...More

Nice traditional spot. Great quality, good portions, friendly service. I had "Risotto alla pavese", with red wine and beans, and it was extremely good. As a second course I had a very traditional "costoletta alla milanese", which was huge. We had a few bottles of...More

it's good sometimes to go back in the past. This is the feeling you have at L'altra Isola, probably the best place to eat risotto with ossobuco in milan. And Mundeghili, typical milanese polpette, are delicious. The owner is a good old man, sometimes talkative,...More
