5 reviews of 10 Corso Como in English
Wow, we had heard so much about the place. An exquisite blend of creativity, culture and cuisine.
But the disappointment was great when we ended up there, even as well-paying customers.
A heartless reception from a very disinterested Chef de Service. He led us to our table and was never seen again nearby. We had made reservations well in advance and the place was nearly empty - except for 3 of 15 tables.
The rest of the restaurants waiters team gave us the impression that they were totally stoned. There is no other way to explain their behavior.
They handed out the menues and vanished. Neither a friendly hello, an offer/suggestions for an aperitif. We fought all evening for their attention, one waiter even waved back at us, when we tried to get their attention. It felt just like in those hidden camera gags.
When - at last - our waitress was at our table, we said we would like to order an aperitif. After the first drink order, she ran away. And came back with just one drink. :)
The wine order was no better. We ordered a good bottle of wine. She brought another one. And ran away immediately. When she came back to our table the next tme, we pointed it out, she claimed that it was the wine we had ordered. Even the label on the bottle is wrong. :) A lot of creativity i must say.
After the appetizer we received immediately the dessert menu. Practical, but we all had ordered a main course ....
If the food was not so good, definitely not great, but good, I would give this pace zero points. (Does not work though).
Conclusion: Great ambience, the worst service I have ever experienced. NEVER AGAIN!
10 Corso Como is simply one of the best multi-brand fashion and design stores in the world. Started in 1991 by a former Vogue Italia editor in a small street which used to be slightly dodgy years ago and is now uber fashionable, 10 Corso Como sets the trends for womenswear and menswear retail for the fashion crowd. They are THE reference that all top labels and emerging designers want to have and have the ability to pick the best pieces. All this comes at a price though and typically they charge a premium but the retail experience is really great. This former Renault garage has been transformed into a luxury concept store and the volumes and design are really stunning. Note that they have great accessories (sunglasses, shoes, bags, jewelry) a very cool book and music store upstairs and a section dedicated to homewear too (vases, glasses, plates etc.). The closest thing to this would be Colette in Paris but this is way more ambitious, more like a kind of oriental bazaar meeting a fashion temple and frankly better.
I have only been to the bar/ restaurant, although I have heard that there is also a design store (probably not open late at night)!.
This bar is right in the middle of one of the hotspots of Milan nightlife. However what really distinguishes this place is two things -
1. It is full of plants everywhere, almost making it feel like you’re having a drink in the garden
2. Part of the garden area is covered by a type of transparent plastic tent, which is classified as outdoors, meaning one can smoke here (smoking is illegal in public places in Italy). It is also warmed up during the winter.
Atmosphere is good, expect the usual goodlooking and fashionable crowd of Milan.
Service is ok, but drinks are quite expensive, although the general area is expensive.
Overall a novel and nice place to have a drink in the centre of Milan’s nightlife.
