I came here once with my mom at 3 pm, after a shopping morning, and the staff was really welcoming and kind, considering that in many places at 3 they wouldnt even accept you. We chose the menu of the day and it consisted of 4/5 dishes, starting from a meat tartare to the dessert. Everything was delicious and also well presented. The price for the menu, not including water was about 15€ each

I don't know what others liked about this place but we we're very disappointed. We came for dinner 9pm it was empty. Waiters gave us menu of drinks. When I asked "what about food?" His answer was: you will get snacks with the drinks.
I explained: "I mean dinner!" So finally he gave us a menu. Swordfish was tasteless, risotto-I can make it better myself and believe me I am not fan of a cooking. It seems that this place is for lunch as it is in office building. Not typical Italian, not romantic, not even tasty or fun.

to get to this restaurant you need to get off at the Gioia stop on the green line. When you get out of the subway you only see officeblocks and busy roads... not a very charming location. The restaurant is probably more a lunch place for officeworkers but is also open at night. Decor is simple and modern, service is relaxed and efficient. The food is really great and innovative. Good spot for some creative food. The location is not very alive, but 1 subways stop away and you are at the lively Corso Como area. A bit of a hidden gem!

My friends and I were curious to see the new highest skyscraper in Milan built for the Expo 2015. A few steps from the Green Metro Station Gioia, we saw the beautiful 161.3m crystal building that, at the top of the 40th floor, has a copy of the “Madonnina” that shines on the Duomo of Milan. The Milanese tradition says that She always protect Milan from its highest building so now She lives even there.
At the steps of the new Palazzo Lombardia we saw a new lounge restaurant full of people smiling and drinking champagne. We decided to have a look at the design skyscraper after and try to get into the “Il Santa bistro' moderno”. We were really lucky because in the middle of the week they still had the last table for three. The young owner, Stefano Grandi, has a rich pedigree: before opening Il Santa, he was Chef at Dolce e Gabbana, Langosteria 10, Caffe' Savona and Hotel Visconti Palace (the most glamorous places in Milan for fashion!) We decided to let him suggests us his new gourmet creations.
First of all we started with a flute of Veuve Cliquot (Il Santa is Brand image restaurant and Stefano Grandi is preparing the main event in Milan for Dom Perignom!)
We chose three antipasti”: a kind of spicy“Sicilian sushi”with red tuna, capers and sundried tomatoes, then snapper carpaccio with celery, lime and incredible crunchy black rice and a fried SanPietro fish on yellow beans and spinach leaves. Every dish was juicy, tasty, perfumed but meanwhile light so we continued with “gold” fusilli with cod mousse, black pepper and pecorino cheese and then fresh made spaghetti with marinated anchovies , tuna roe and tomato confit, and a creamy risotto alla milanese with quail egg and lemon peel. They suggested us the right wine from a different region of Italy and we enjoyed every bite. Meanwhile people we were eating at the tables, there was a group of twelve people (waiting for their turn to sit) that were drinking aperitivo at the lounge and were delighted by different “finger food temptations” coming from the kitchen for them.
It was very pleasant and when Stefano came out from the kitchen to ask if we were satisfied, (of course yes!) he suggested us a dessert wine from Pantelleria Island to taste the Sicilan Cannolo with sweet ricotta, the chamomile crème caramel with red fruits and flowers, and the chocolate salami with bananas ice cream and vanilla biscuit.
After this experience we forgot to visit the state of the art skyscraper because we were yet in paradise!

Io e i miei amici eravamo curiosi di vedere il nuovo grattacielo più alto di Milano costruito per l'Expo 2015. A pochi passi dalla stazione della metropolitana verde Gioia, abbiamo ammirato il bellissimo edificio di cristallo alto 161.3m. In cima al 40o piano vi e’ una copia della "Madonnina" che brilla sul Duomo di Milano, la tradizione milanese infatti vuole che Lei protegga sempre Milano dal suo edificio più alto, percio’ora si trova anche lassu’.
Alla base del nuovo Palazzo Lombardia pero’ abbiamo notato un nuovo ristorante lounge pieno di gente sorridente che sorseggiava champagne. Abbiamo deciso di dare un'occhiata al grattacielo piu’ tardi e cercare di entrare ne "il Santa Bistro’ Moderno”. Siamo stati veramente fortunati perché a meta’della settimana avevano ancora l'ultimo tavolo da tre.
Il giovane proprietario, Stefano Grandi, ha un ricco “pedigree”: prima di aprire Il Santa, era Chef a Dolce e Gabbana, Langosteria 10, Caffe 'Savona e Hotel Visconti Palace ( fra le location piu’ famose per la moda a Milano) Abbiamo deciso di lasciare che fosse lui a suggerirci le sue nuove creazioni gourmet.
Prima di tutto è abbiamo brindato con una flute di Veuve Cliquot (di cui Il Santa è Brand Image restaurant e abbiamo Saputo che Stefano Grandi sta preparando il main event di Dom Perignom a Milano!)
Abbiamo scelto tre antipasti ": una sorta di piccante" sushi siciliano "con il tonno rosso, capperi di Ustica e pomodori secchi, poi carpaccio di dentice con sedano e un sorprendente riso croccante nero e infine una frittura di pesce SanPietro con fave gialle e foglie di spinaci. Ogni piatto era succoso, saporito e profumato ma nel frattempo leggero così abbiamo continuato con I primi: fusilli "oro" con mousse di baccala’, cacio e pepe nero e poi spaghetti con alici marinate, bottarga di tonno e pomodoro confit e un cremoso risotto alla milanese con uovo di quaglia e scorza di limone. Ci hanno sempre suggerito il vino giusto da una diversa regione d'Italia e abbiamo apprezzato ogni boccone.
Mentre gli altri commensali mangiavano ai tavoli, vi era un gruppo di dodici persone (in attesa del loro turno per sedersi) che bevevano l’aperitivo al lounge ed erano tentati dai "finger food" cucinati al momento e provenienti dalla cucina apposta per loro.
E 'stato molto piacevole e quando Stefano è uscito dalla cucina per chiedere se siamo rimasti soddisfatti, (ovviamente si!) ci ha suggerito un Passito di Pantelleria per accompagnare il Cannolo Sicilano con ricotta dolce, crème caramel alla camomilla con frutti rossi e fiori, e il salame al cioccolato con gelato alla banana e vaniglia biscuit.
Dopo questa esperienza ci siamo dimenticati di visitare il grattacielo design perché ormai eravamo gia’ in paradiso!
