No. But the Restaurant is nice, so I would recommend smart casual. I have two young adults sons and I asked them to wear al least a clean tee shirt, jeans and tennis. No sandals.

Description
The Don Carlos, pays homage to Maestro Giuseppe Verdi, who stayed
at the Grand Hotel et de Milan for more than twenty years. An intimate and
elegant setting with paintings, sketches and scene-paintings from the La
Scala Theatre Museum. The Don Carlos Restaurant serves Italian traditional
cuisine under the light of its antique silver chandelier.

Under the executive management of the Chef Angelo Gangemi, the Don Carlos
offers a traditional Italian cuisine which presents all ingredients
according to their seasonality, interpreting with originality and refinement
menus taken from the flavours and fragrances of the Mediterranean tradition.
It is listed in the leading guide-books and reviews as one of the most
exclusive restaurants in Milan, having reached a top gastronomic level, with
excellent service in an elegant atmosphere. In the cellar, that prides
itself on 200 labels, you can find the remains of an old Roman wall that
dates back to 250 AD. Open for after theatre dinners, in the warm seasons it
is also possible to eat outdoors.
