Spectacular - this is the word which summarises my dinner last night at the Ristorante Berton.
The venue itself it a wonderfully warm, welcoming setting with mellow colours and tonalities soothing the eye when one steps into the restaurant. The choice of furniture and beautifully composed details create a marvellously 'quiet' yet elegant interior lined with very comfortable furniture and nicely laid out tables well-spread throughout the large spaces , each table set in its own subtly-framed space.
The staff are clearly carefully selected and trained down to every detail. Beyond the manners and courtesies to be expected, each and every one of them displayed great sensibility for timing and a wonderul meausre for just the right convwrsation when looking after us without ever being too overbearing (something which personally can put me off enjoyinf the entire experienxe at such reataurabts) and when explaining the narratives behind each dish - the staff truly made us feel at home, looked after and at our ease throughout.
Delicious, as one would hope, I can confirm each morsel, from the home made grissini, crackers and brrads, to thr entrés, the sallad, the main and the desserts - eaxh was an explosion of wonderfully assembled flavours and textures.
I loved how each meal maintained the flavour of the genuine ingredients jjst perfectly combined with the surprise of herbs, fruit and spices without ever overpowering the flavour of the main ingredients.
I must also note how wonderful thoughtful the food was put together, making it so easy to be eaten effortlessly, without those potentially awkward moments one can encounter when attempting to eat beautiful compositions of food. Here it was instead very thoughtfully crafted in perfect portions, sizes and with every shell, crust and creamy detail perfectly composed to be easily picked up and enjoyed, effortlessly.
Beyond the wonderful explosiojs of tastes and textures, diner itself truly felt like being in a setting of Alice and Wonderland, helplessly awing, gasping and giggling in delight with every single plate laid infornt of us. The colours and shapes were just beautiful, elegant and with a load of hunour too.
A truly remarkable experience dining at this restaurant, delicious, relaxing ans memorable. It felt like walking out from a fairy-tale boutique theater. Thank you.

My goodness, if you could eat Milan this is how you would accomplish it. A city famed for good taste and daring style, the food must be up to the challenge. I would fly here and return the same evening if I could. Flawless dining
