IN THE HEART OF OLD MILAN Terrazza Aperol sits between past and future, tradition and modernity, in the huge Autogrill Duomo Store multi-concept centre in Milan, on the original site of Caffè Motta (Milan, 1928). The first Caffè Bar Motta, in Galleria Carlo Alberto, was designed by the architect Melchiorre Bega. Its interior design blending Italian tradition with the innovations of futurism helped define the identity of the typical "Italian bar" known all over the world. For three generations, Caffè Motta was a meeting point for the Milanese, a place where the urban trajectories of the bourgeoisie intersected those of the city's students, intellectuals and artists. v

Funky chairs made out of washing line but many in need of repair. Average service and over inflated prices. It's only average because the great thing about this place is what you can see from it's terrace which lifts it's rating. So go for the view and perhaps an Aperol Spritzer.

We had to wait a short while before being seated on the terrace, this was fine - we had the option to sit inside but waited to be seated outside. The waiter who took us to the table was extremely rude, he didn't even look at us when speaking and plonked us at a table. I stood up to move... More

I have seen some scathing reviews of the terrace on here, and I'm wondering just exactly what people expect? A fantastic terrace, in the heart of Milan overlooking the cathedral and people seem to think that it won't be busy, or expensive. Coming from London, knew what to expect, we had to wait 20 minutes to access the terrace, and... More

We visited terrace for drinks in the afternoon and there was no queue. Can't say anything about service as we didn't order food. The price for aperol spritz - 12€

We went for a quick lunch. The location is great overlooking the duomo. The menu was decent full of local favorites and the Milanese Risotto was really good. The service sucked.... I don't know what else to say about it, it seemed like a real effort to get a table even though the place was only half full. The waitress... More

The only good thing about Terazza Aperol is the view. The service was horrible! We staff at the reception/entrance were more interested in gossiping than servicing their customers. One female bartender looked like she hated her job and had a lot of attitude. Don't go here. Enjoy the view from somewhere else.

The view of the Milan cathedral is wonderful! Best for sunset or happy hour. Menu offers good food such as egg plant and pasta but the highlight are the drinks. Beautiful decoration and definitely a place to hang out if you a tourist in Milan. Service is terrible... You need patience.

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.
