Close to the Duomo and La Scala in a quite side street this unpretentious restaurant serves excellent Italian food beautifully prepared. Service is prompt and friendly. Try the risotto with apple, mushrooms and chestnuts, and conclude with a real tiramisu - quite different from the boring concoction that is so often passed off under that name. And a lovely selection... More

Helpful waitstaff serving very good food! A very popular choice and deservedly so. We actually ate there three times during our week long stay and we're never disappointed!

This was our first meal in Milan, and we were not disappointed. We arrived without a reservation, but were a little early by Milan's dining standards (It was about 7:00) so they had a table available for us. We each ordered wine, shared the sampler appetizer (definitely recommend!), my husband got the sea bass and I had risotto Milanese. We... More

Lovely restaurant in a central Milan location. We were there on a busy Sunday afternoon but the service was still prompt and efficient. This restaurant seemed to be a neighborhood place as there were many diners who were familiar with the staff and were warmly greeted. We had lunch there which was terrific and typical Northern Italian fare. I would... More

We arrived without a reservation just as they opened for dinner and we were seated and told the table was available until 9. We spent a lovely hour and a half. Service was excellent and very helpful since we do not speak Italian and this was our first dinner of our vacation. We had pasta, of course. There were locals... More

I had reserved for a large group (20+ persons) for a business group and we had selected 2 menu's in advance. The communication was great leading up to the dinner and the service on the day was great! The restaurant is close to the Duomo, so right in the centre. The food was amazing! And very reasonably priced. We had... More

The restaurant is in a discreet lane but near Duomo. It was after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor that we decided to try. Although we did not make a reservation, the staff managed to get seats for 5 of us. Friendly staff overall although at times they can get very busy. That's when I ignored reminding the staff on my...

Went here for dinner on our last night on holiday in Milan after reading the reviews and it did not disappoint. We were welcomed warmly and quickly seated even though it was busy and we didn't have a reservation. The risotto was out of this world and the spaghetti was the best I have ever tasted. Although it was very... More

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
