Small but intelligent place . The owners are gentle prepared and competent. They don't prepare normal panini /sandwiches but innovative ones with special ingredients which you do not find elsewhere . It is definitely a place to try and you will not be disappointed . Good for lunch .

The bar is in a convenient location for the cathedral, La Scala etc in a row of other bars and cafes. The prices are reasonable (€5 for a panini) and the panini tasted fresh. Service was quick and efficient although I was slightly outside the lunchtime rush. Basically a good place for a quick pit stop.

I spotted this place by walking from shopping and had to have lunch there after seeing the wall of paninis! The service was good and the prices are really low compared to similar places in the area. I think this was the cheapest lunch we've had on our trip to Italy but also the tastiest! I had a cappuccino and... More

Food was fresh and tasty and prices are really low - we had 2 paninis, bruschetta and 3 aperol spiritzs and pay about 25€. The location is perfect - 5 min from the Duomo. Highly recommend this place for a quick meal during the day.

Perfect place to refuel while sightseeing in the Duomo area. Big selection of paninis for €5 as well as salads etc. Service was quick and there are tables outside. Just what we wanted!

Great lunch or drink spot. It's a cafe and doesn't look much, but you have to judge it on that basis and not a fine dining venue. Huge variety of freshly made food of the panini and sandwich variety and drinks with good prices and service. The Spritz menu for €5 is great value and includes at 250ml of Aperol... More

We came here on the advice of the TA reviews after we just arrived to the city. We stopped here because we wanted something relatively quick and nearby. TA let us down on this one. The cafe had three panini selections available to us when we sat down at 3:30. We ordered two choices. They were mediocre at best and... 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.
