    Went there mostly for the experience. Main area closed due to Easter, no one knew about what they are showing. We also got kicked out of an area for opening a book to see the prices of what they were selling because "it is an office and it is open only when there is the manager". Food was unfortunately not great (The truffle on top of my pasta was old and without taste and the zucchini were bitter) but nothing was done by the waiters. I do not blame the chef trying to experiment but the waiters gave a terrible service. If the restaurant has to be presented in half, without anyone knowing about showroom, without the live music they usually have, then why do they keep it open? It is just not worth the extra cost.

    Nel complesso un bel ristorante con una buona atmosfera, ma tra i vari piatti abbiamo ricevuto una cotoletta con un pezzo di carta stagnola tra la carne e l’impanatura. Diciamo che per 108 euro di conto quantomeno non dovrebbe succedere

    Avrei voluto mettere 5 stelle ma lo stato indecente dei bagni non lo permette. Sottolineo bagni sporchi e scassati ( porte divelte pedate ovunque sui muri e sulle porte, allagato) per nulla ben mantenuti. Questo è INAMMISSIBILE in un locale che voglia dirsi di alto livello. Cibo e servizio ottimi.

    The pasta with calamari was among the best I’ve ever had; the sea bass was very good but the second order was just slightly fishy tasting. I’d give this place 4.6 stars but I rounded up…

    Avoid this restaurant - do NOT waste your time and money. I should have read the reviews before booking as many experienced the same problems as I did. 1) Food: It was very basic and not tasty. The presentation was also very poor. The 36 euros Milanese veal cutlet showed up alone on a plate with a piece of lemon. The side salad was a small bunch of leaves straight out of a grocery bag with no vinaigrette. The 20 euros fried zucchinis consisted of 4 fried balls (dried up inside) and presented alone on a plate. 2) Service: That was the worst part. The waiter refused to take our coats and stared at us while we were fumbling with our umbrellas and asking him what to do. He was not knowledgeable at all about the food, he had no idea how to work in a restaurant, and he was overtly rude. The main plates for 2 people in our party arrived before the appetizers for the other 2. Then we waited forever for the main plates. I complained to the restaurant manager and all I got was a blank stare. I thought that perhaps he didn't speak english. At the end of the meal, before we left, I spoke to the manager again and realised that indeed he spoke english. He listened to my feedback, didn't say a word, turned around and left us. 3) Space & decor: The restaurant is much smaller than on the pictures. It is long and narrow, and has no ambience. It was also relatively empty - no surprise given the bad food and poor service. All and all, I am very disappointed in that experience. I had only a few nights in Milan and wasted an opportunity to try something better. I think that Tom Dixon should not lend his name to this venture.

    L’ambiance est agréable mais en dehors de notre entrée et cocktail le reste des plats soit manquait de goût soit ne correspondait pas à ce qui était proposé (ex : tiramisu à la mangue sans mangue ou glace vanille remplacé par du chocolat sans prévenir) les pâtes étaient fades et les desserts vraiment pas bon ! Ensemble décevant pour le prix !

    L’unica nota positiva è il design de ristorante, e il dj set. Il servizio è amatoriale, il cibo è arrivato freddo ed era in se insipido. Porzioni piccolissime. Il prezzo dei vini è proposto con un multiplo assurdo. Molto caro per cibo, vino e servizio.

    Based on past reviews and pitures of the interior of the restaurant, we chose to have dinner at The Manzoni during our Milan stay. As it was our last evening in Italy, we were looking forward to a pleasant food experience. Unfortunately, it turned out to be one of our worst ecperiences for a while. While friendly, service is slow and waiters dustracred. Taste of food is nothing special, and portions on the small side. They even charge EUR 10 per person for the coperta! Based on our experience, we would not recommend this restaurant to anybody. Very expensive for what you get.

    Location sicuramente d’impatto, servizio molto cordiale, ma sicuramente il rapporto qualità-prezzo è sproporzionato (diciamo che si paga la location). Pesce fresco, ma piatti poco ricercati. Forse più per turisti.

    Food was excellent, as was the decor. Service was hit and miss through the evening. One waiter was attentive at the start, helpful and pleasant, but head waiter who was meant to be attending us was the opposite - not attentive, unhelpful and a bit miserable. Shame as everything else was good. Also seemed we were out of the way from the rest of the diners. We had a table in the back of the restaurant amongst 2-3 other seated tables, but once they left we were on our own for the best part of 2 hours and not really attended to as much as the larger groups in the main section of the restaurant.

    inizio serata un po’ incerto: Su nostra richiesta siamo stati fatti accomodare al tavolo 5 minuti prima dell’orario di inizio servizio previsto (18.30). La richiesta era dovuta alla necessità di finire la cena per le 19.45 in modo da arrivare in orario per l’inizio dell’opera alla vicina Scala. Il nostro ingresso antipasto ha parecchio innervosito il maitre in quanto erano ancora in corso delle modifiche nella preparazione della sala. Ci può stare ma il cliente non deve essere messo in imbarazzo.. tra l’altro non ci sono nemmeno stare prese le giacche.. Per fortuna poi la cena è proseguita molto bene.. gentile il personale e ottima la cucina con una menzione particolare per i dolci.

    The location is beautiful, obviously with the design pièces of Tom Dixon but unfortunately the atmosphere is really cold. The DJ used to mix old commercial songs revisited in remix. The food was very not qualitative, i could say that it was dramatic. When you are in Italy you have the feeling that you are going to eat marvelously and this is not the case, here unfortunately. If you want to see and be seen, the place is ok but for 250 euros of final invoice for 3 people with just a starter, a main plate and one glass of wine... it's a bit hard if the taste of your food is not good. Sorry Manzoni's team but you should check your critics and try to improve

    After reading a fantastic review in Wallpaper magazine and having always admired Tom Dixon’s work I was eager to visit this restaurant. Looking at the website promised much. I invited friends from both the UK and Milan to join us. On arrival we were led to a table at the most distant point from the entrance which was pretty much in darkness. No offer was made to take our coats. We were then just left there. After 10 minutes of waiting we decided that the table was not suitable and eventually spoke to a member of staff who put us in a more inviting part of the restaurant- just as well as a party was held in the room at the end which got pretty raucous! After 50 minutes we got an aperitif and our menu choices were taken. We ordered appetisers and primi dishes to start! I have had better risotto in Wildwood! One couple ordered their primi. 15 minutes later they were told their choice was no longer available. We decided not to order a secondi. I got the bill , spoke to the maitre d’ and expressed our disappointment. 10% was knocked off the bill and a drink offered! We were all underwhelmed by the whole experience. Such a massive shame. Maybe it’s early days ?!?!?

    So disappointing, no one met us we had to find someone to register our booking. Told to wait at the bar but many free tables. Food uninspiring and expensive, no atmosphere and service slow. I took my son as a treat thinking it would be similar to the Coal Office and we left as such a bad experience

    We booked after the opera because it was close and one of the few places open. At first although there were other open tables we were seated right across from the toilets. We were moved away but then realized that their front door kept opening uncontrollably blasting nearby diners. The decor is usually cited as a plus but we found it to be designery corporate. The bathroom was so high concept I couldn’t figure out to turn on the faucet. The food was quite good, sometimes excellent but it was spoiled by the wait staff trying to hurry us through our dinner so they could go home.
