Absolutely AWSOME place. We were doing some training cross the street for 3 days and never new about this gem as it looks quite strange from the outside. And the last day we were recommended to try it out for a lunch. And guess what!!! We had lunch specials( branzino filet and seafood pasta), some wine and mineral water and the bill was €20,- including drinks. Unbelievable in Milano. Not mentioning that the food was really excellent and servis fast and friendly. Really shame we didn't try this before. NO DOUBT WE'LL BE BACK
This little restaurant, in the città studi area of Milan, offers a great option if you are after italian fish cuisine but do not want to spend more than 50€ per person. The place is very small, and the ambiance quite simple and relaxed. The menu is quite limited (good sign!), and you should ask right away what fishes are available and recommended. The raw tuna carpaccio antipasto was tasty and fresh, and the fish (branzino and orata) was top notch. The service was kind and personal, if not super fast. I hope to come back soon!
Passing by a monday evening we saw an interesting menu offer outside offering "Astice Menu" on tuesdays. We booked a table for the day after as we were curious. Nice small restaurant with beautiful atmosphere. Fresh fish is in an expositor in the entrance. Interesting well think menu and short but good wine list. We arrived around 20.00, restaurant was quite full and at that moment there was only one waiter, we thought damm, maybe we wait for ages! Fortunately, there was a second waiter and didn't take very long to be served. We ordered and he gave us the "fish tools".. :) After some "long minutes" while we were enjoying a very tasting white wine our two half of "astice alla catalana" arrived. Nice presentation and very tasty, i was happily surprised!!! :) To continue, an amazing "bavette with astice" pasta plate arrived!! In one word; TOP! Desserts were also very good, particularly the tiramisu, home made and very recommended. Coffees were also included. We spent around 3 hours chatting comfortably. We will be back soon! Price; 40€/each with one bottle of wine (20€). Worths it! Service could be a bit more professional (maybe two waiters for 8 tables is not enough) but is more than enough.
