Top bars & restaurants for Aperitivo in Milan's Navigli - list of some of the most popular with some claim to fame (and interactive map)

Milan is famous for "aperitivo", and the Navigli is the most famous spot for aperitivo in Milan. Which are the best bars & restaurants for aperitivo in the Navigli?


Q: I heard the Navigli district is the best spot in Milan for evening bars & restaurants for "aperitivo" (set deal with one drink and usually unlimited snacks, starting from the early evening). I see there are so many there - which are the best to try?

A: It is true that there are just so many bars and restaurants in the Navigli district - the canal neighborhood of Milan. So the short answer is just to try whichever looks the best to you (also take a peek at what people are having on their "aperitivo" snack plate, and what aperitivo spread that they have on the buffet table if they have one).



To help you, here below, we've curated a list of some of the best and most popular aperitivo spots in Milan's Navigli area with some claim to fame (check the Foursquare & Tripadvisor reviews for price ranges and customer descriptions); plus a link to an interactive map of Navigli, right at the bottom of this page, so you can see the relative locations of each one:
