Here you can get a really good bang for a buck! The Bruschetta were fresh the bread crispy and the pasta we had was just bursting with flavours. Very friendly and discreet service! If you're around in Milan, don't hesitate to go here.

This is the second time we have eaten here. This time we booked and reserved a table. The owner recognised us from two years ago which was a nice touch and we were made very welcome. We had mixed meats and mozzarella and tomato starters which were absolutely delicious.

For the main we had the owners recommendation of the 'T' bone special. Four of the biggest 'T' bone steaks I have ever seen arrived on slate bed sizzlers along with lots of sides, and lovely beer. The steaks were very thick, I estimate two inches. They were expertly segmented so that you could take the segments out and cook them to your taste.

Marco's service and that of his staff was second to none. The meal was delicious and we all said that we could not wait to come back again. We cannot praise this gem enough and would recommend it most highly.

None of us are "foodies" but we are all well travelled and know good value and service when we see it.

Disappointed. Service with complete lack of coordination. Twice the same dish coming back but still no hot seafood. When we asked to pay, the dish that was rejected were on the bill and we had to explain to the waiter what happened. We skipped desert in this place. Prices in level with a good restaurant but food and service below average. Not recommended.

First impressions were great. We turned up on a Monday night without booking. We were given a table and the service was great. None of us spoke Italian but this proposed no problem for the very helpful staff. The food, from a very comprehensive menu, was fantastic and arrived quickly. The helpings were big. I can't recommend this place enough really.
