    Food good but my veal Milanese was a little dry. Server was rushed and wasn’t really helpful. Good setting and would try again. It was a Sunday night and we ate early.

    I arrived at Al Mercante and was told they did not have my reservation. I showed them the 2 confirmation emails and all they did was shrug. They ended up accommodating me outside in the cold. Food was decent, customer service was in the gutter. Could not get in touch with The Fork either. Submitted an issue via email and yet no response.

    Great location, nice atmosphere, but I’ve had better Italian food in other parts of Milan for less money. It feels like you are paying for location over quality. Regardless, still a good option if you’re in the area and looking for a good dinner option that is easily accessible.

    Good food, a bit overpriced but thats probably because it is in a very touristic area. Nice atmosphere and good service.

    I hv been eating in this restaurant for over 8 years. I rated it 5 ⭐️ in google in the past. It was my favourite restaurant in Milan, but it changed after moving in this new location in 2018, food portion became smaller, taste became more salty, and staff became not as friendly as before.

    We made a special trip into Milan to eat here and we weren’t disappointed! The pasta with lemon and pistachio was excellent! We will be back!

    Waiter friendly but overall service was kind of spotty. Par for the course in Milan. Seems like a place that’s living on its laurels. Great atmosphere but the food was mediocre at best. Bland to the point of boredom except for the octopus/shrimp in lemon sauce appetizer which showed great promise but wash so mushy I thought it was polenta - yuck!
