We went here twice already. We need to wait outside a little to be seated as it is always full everytime we come. The staffs were very friendly and accommodating and the food is simply very good! We had pizza, spaghetti alla carbonara, risotto alla milanese and cotoletta - all with the traditional taste! Definitely recommending this place!

I visited Milan this week and went to Portobello. Service is Good, and the staff was corteous. We ordered a spaghetti with vongoles and the risotto with mushrooms, both dishes were delicious. Great cost benefit. This restaurant is located out of the Via Corso Buenos Aires and is frequented by the locals, but they speak english.

Went here with my wife and it was a lovely little find. Was like being in a regional Italian rustic restaurant but with city surroundings. Pretty basic inside but when entering one of the first things you will see is the wood burning pizza oven! Big plus in Italian kitchens. Staff are very friendly and the food is great. Especially...

We went for lunch with friends. They were one of the few places open on Sunday. We were promptly greeted and seated. I ordered the grilled vegetables appetizer and the parmigiana pizza. Both were delicious. For the table, we had a liter of house red, which was montelpuciano d'abruzzo. Very nice wine for a reasonable price. All 6 of us... More

The food is fantastic. The service is good. It's a genuine Italian restaurant, my husband and I are the only patrons sitting here speaking English. Also, it's cheap.

I stopped here my last night in Milan. Just stumbled on it as everything seemed closed on Sunday. Waited for a table about 10 minutes. Service was fast and friendly. This is not a fine dining experience but a small local restaurant serving great food at a great price. I recommend the Scallopine limone and the grilled vegetables (peppers, zucchini,... More

Simple food, affordable prices, delicious flavours. Light Italian flavours not to over powering. Satisfied at the end of the meal. Warm welcoming staff quick to take our order, however not so quick to clean up courses. Comparative drink prices. Would recommend.
