It was tasty but I had just as good or better elsewhere at half the price. It's quite central but definitely not the best place I went to while their.

Cara Elisabeth e consorte, sono tremendamente rammaricato per la vostra delusione, mi dispiace che non ci sia ancora la cultura per capire e distinguere il buono, sano e genuino, dal cibo spazzatura e mi rendo conto di quanto il sistema attuale non aiuti ad affinare i ricettori, per la frenesia in cui viviamo e la mancanza di tempo da dedicare al cibo ed alla sua importanza. Io sono milanese e non conosco molto bene la zona, vi prego, anche con messaggio privato, indicatemi per cortesia dove mangiate focaccine artiglianali farcite con ingredieti di qualità a metà prezzo e la cena ve la pago io, perché mi farei fornire da loro focaccine e materie prime, anziché prepararmele artigianalmente o far arrivare materie prima da luoghi diversi dell’Italia con costi altissimi, forse riuscirei anche ad abbassare i prezzi, perché vi assicuro che le materie prime che tratto sono veramente care, proprio per la loro pregevolezza. Grazie in anticipo per il vostro contributo e supporto.

Dear John and wife, I am terribly sorry for your disappointment, I am sorry that there is not yet the culture to understand and distinguish the good, healthy and genuine, from junk food and I realize how much the current system does not help to refine the receptors, for the frenzy in which we live and the lack of time to devote to food and its importance. I am from Milan and I do not know the area very well, please, even with a private message, please indicate to me where you eat scallops artiglianali stuffed with quality ingredients at half price and I will pay for the dinner, because I would provide them with scones and raw materials, rather than prepare them by hand or get raw materials from different places in Italy with high costs, perhaps I could also lower prices, because I assure you that the raw materials that stretch are really expensive, just for their value. Thanks in advance for your contribution and support.

We went here after we saw the great reviews on tripadvisor. It looks nice and is really central. The menu looks good, there is something for everyone, but mostly foccacia. I tried the sloth which was tasty, but nothing special and hence completely overpriced (not even the biggest focaccia i had). For two sandwiches and two lemonades we paid €24. Not what i would call great value for streetfood.

Visited after my girlfriend saw all the positive reviews on trip advisor and was not dissapointed. We both had the eight sins burger and it was a delight. You can tell the ingredients are as fresh as can be as the taste is phenomenal. Fast, friendly efficient service and a beautiful craft beer to accompany it. What more do you need? Bellisima!

Visited yesterday Marco and had a hamburger, foccacia terra and wurstel. Great taste, with fine herbs which gave an special taste to every dish. Also the craft beer and the Montecarlo white wine (Verminigio grapes) were excellent. Must visit.

Buongiorno Andrei, capisco lo stupore quando leggendo cibo da strada hai mangiato i miei piatti Gran Gourmet tanto buoni che neppure ristoranti stellati preparano, meraviglia nel tuo viso vedendo l’Hamburger di chianina, lascia pensierosi di quanto sono buoni i peccati di gola di l’Ottavo Vizio, farcito con songino, pomodorini datterini, caciobufala, cipolla di Tropea, peperone e pancetta croccante, abbinamento indovinato per rendere appetitoso il più ricco pranzo.
Senza parole mangiando il Wurstel incamiciato con bottoncini di sesamo e capirai quanta differenza con i classici panini che mangi altrove, forse un Euro pagato in più per vivere il Paradiso dei sensi, ricorderai per giorni la freschezza di tanta qualità.
Piatti tanto ricercati e gustosi chiedono bevande adeguate come la birra artigianale che tanto lodi.
Tutto eccellente da ritornare sicuramente.
Ti ringrazio Andrei.
Chef Marco.

Best gourmet street food ever! I highly recommend the sea food focaccia with pistachio and cheese. Worth a visit!

Buongiorno Corina, Grazie per la eccellente e gradita recensione, nulla è più piacevole per Chef di veder lodati i piatti, “vale la visita” conferma il piacere di tornare.
La focaccia che tanto lodi è il mio nono peccato capitale che in un momento di magica felicità ho creato per dividere con altri la gioia, PREMINENZA, “superiorità assoluta” un abbinamento impensabile di gamberi e calamari gratinati, caciobufala Dop, songino e granella di pistacchio di Bronte, nulla è tanto buono, ingredienti genuini della miglior qualità per la gioia dei palati più esigenti.
“Il miglior cibo da strada gourmet di sempre!” Street Food è insegna de l’Ottavo Vizio mentre la cucina è una stellata per qualità dei piatti, soltanto il meglio per le creazioni di Chef Marco.
Mi dicono di essere breve per non diventare barboso e mi adeguo.
Torna presto Corina, il ricco menù de l’Ottavo vizio riuscirà a stregarti ogni volta.
Chef Marco.
