On a quiet aimless meander through Milan we came upon this lovely stylish place. It's beautiful outside, with lovely deco windows, reminiscent of Rennie Mackintosh. Internally it's also wonderful, the staff are extremely friendly and welcoming, telling us it housed Italy's very first bistrot. Initially,...More

This trattoria is at the end of the San Marco open market, so it's very convenient after a morning of shopping to pop in here. The menu is Milanese style, so I enjoyed the Ossobucco with Risotto and my wife loved the branzino (sea bass)...More

Brera captures the real essence of the city. It is an
excellent mix between history and modernity, where
tradition meets innovation. Here design and beauty
reign. On Via Brera there are the famous Pinacoteca
(galleries), the National Gallery of Modern and
Antique Art, and the Academy of Fine Arts. Interior
design boutiques and intellectual cafes are typical of
the district. Walking along Via Madonnina is a must to
