È un pool ad alto tasso di professionalità quello che Alberto Tasinato (già restaurant manager al Seta del Mandarin Oriental) ha voluto accanto a sé quando ha varato a questo ristorante e louge bar. Elegante ma non formale, alle due sale ristorante si aggiunge la saletta da soli 8 posti con vista sulla cucina, attorniata da bottiglie importanti nella cantinetta climatizzata a vetri.

Lo chef romano Puleio (in precedenza sous chef allo stellato Pipero) lavora in modo creativo, ma senza eccessi e sa creare un ideale ponte tra immancabili specialità milanesi e tocchi di cucina romana; un esempio felice è il Risotto Milano-Roma, che al posto dell’ossobuco abbraccia la coda alla vaccinara. Anche se non mancano piatti creativi come i riuscitissimi Finti straccetti di manzo, peperone, rucola e grana.

Da non perdere i signature cocktail di Valerio Trentani, che da esperto direttore di sala (nel suo curriculum solo esperienze in ristoranti stellati, tra cui il Seta) sa come coccolare gli ospiti, pre e after dinner.

    The ambiance and the decor are great, the service was excellent, very professional. The veal Milanese was very good but the other dishes we had were just ok.

    I had very high expectations that sadly were not met. We took the tasting menu and were a bit disappointed. The food was imaginative, but with many dishes, the flavors were either not there or were too overpowering to respect the ingredients. The staff were courteous, although they seemed to be rather occupied with some VIPs seated next to us. Antipasti: I think Antipasti was where most my gripes were. The musky octopus was ok, but needed something for balance, the berries and goat cheese again ok, but not great. Red paprika starter with parmeggiano was imaginative, but texture and flavor did not impress. The worst offender was the beef tartare w/ ravioli. The beef was totally overpowered by the tomato sauce inside the ravioli, which can only be described as a very acidic tomato paste. The milk poured on top was not enough to tone done the acidity. Primi: The risotto Milanese was a bit hard.to my taste and perhaps a bit sour, but overall one of the nicest dishes. The ox tail was tender and nicely seasoned. Secondi: This is where things picked up and the turbot with chantrelles was excellent. The beef cheek and mash could have been seasoned better. The glaze was not enough flavourwise, but overall a decent dish. Dessert: Dessert was the highlight. The first cooling grape sorbet with almond milk was a great dish to reset your palate. The second dessert was an olive oil ice cream, ricotta foam and boy was it great! Easily the best dish of the night with great flavors and textures. I also liked the little candies and chocolate cigars at the end. Reminded me of Heston Blumenthal and his way to have people ”play” with their food a bit. Overall I am still happy I went. The price was ok for carefully prepared dishes, but sadly 4 dishes out of 9 were not really hitting their marks. I would have also hoped for a bit more attention from the staff. At the end no one asked how we liked the food and we sort of slipped out from the restaurant after paying without a thank you or goodbye from the staff.

    This restaurant is my new discovery on the culinary map of Milan. And it was definitely a tasty surprise , and one of the best dining experiences in Milan. Fantastic food, ambience and vibe. From beginning from the first dish, excellent veal sweetbreads served with delicious oyster mayonnaise, to delicate guinea fowl breast served as second course to the last one...dessert made from pistachios. Truly a top level place!

    Good solid food. Portion sizes are borderline. One main course was way too small.

    I ordered the 5 course tasting menu and it was fantastic. I had amazing service during the entire visit and I really enjoyed that my server took the time to explain exactly what I was eating and how it was prepared. I indulged and it was well worth it!
