Description: Maio was selected by “la Rinascente” as the main restaurant for the dining area on the seventh floor of the historical building in the heart of down town Milan. The dining room is modern, warm and elegant. The exclusive terrace overlooks the majestic cathedral that is the symbol of Milan and ecclesiastic Italian architecture. The classy and cosmopolitan environment is suitable to many kinds of customers: a business man organizing a work lunch, families taking a break from shopping, tourists that want to taste real Italian flavors, to local couples enjoying an elegant fine dining experience in one of the most romantic locations in Milan.

We were here just checking out the place and decided to stay for dinner at Maio after having a few drinks at the bar next door.
I had the tuna and my wife had a chicken pasta. Both were good but my tuna was excellent.
Portions are not large, but enough. The wait staff was friendly and attentive.
We like to sit outdoors in nice weather to eat and this place delivers on that. Plus, you have a great view of the Duomo next door.

Beautiful views and top quality food. The table service was great, there is a short wait before being seated without reservation because its a popular venue. The food is excellent. And the atmosphere is awesome and relaxed. We have been here two times. The Milano style risotto was authentic and delicious. The cheese burger was good quality beef and was a good portion size. The stuffed pasta with cheese and shrimps was very good, the pasta was cooked al dente. Even the desserts are yummy. Especially the tiramisu !

This is the worst culinary experience. We had four different mains and only one of them was edible. The risotto was decent and technically correct. Pizza was like something from Aldi frozen section and on the top of that burned. Spaghetti was pretty but overcooked and under seasoned . The steak was served 30 minutes late, after everyone finished their food. Zero apology and zero realization something was done wrong. If I was in a similar establishment in Berlin kadewe or London selfridges I would leave happy and well fed. This restaurant is a mistake from top to bottom. It may be great for drinks due to the location but serving food should be forbidden. Lazy, nasty with unacceptable lack of customer service! Awful awful awful. Do some research and go somewhere else that is close. Most likely it will be better and cheaper! This should be closed and. Reopened as a drink bar! Food they cannot handle. A day in Milan ruined by a terrible meal!

A bit expensive but a good experience. Classy Milan with an exciting view of Duomo cathedral. Food is above average but not ecstatic. Service is very professional, makes you want to re visit.

Went for a relaxed lunch with friends, Amazing view on the Duomo, offers a variety of food like appetizers, pasta and burgers. It is very busy during lunchtime so the wait for a table without reservation is a little long.
The food Saffron risotto is very nice, and they offer a lot of specialities.
