We arrived this afternoon and headed into Duoma. The food here filled a hole that we needed but for a quick lunch 40 euros is excessive. We had one pasta, one pizza and one bottle of water.

Average food, super expensive! We would have gone elsewhere but where stuck for time. Food was fine but they then charge you €3.25 each for sitting down, something not advertised anywhere. So for a (€6.25) bottle of water, chicken pasta and Bolognese it cost €45!!!...More

Place is nice and also view is very nice. Stuff is very kind and promt. They have good drinks but average food. Prices are the worst in this place. Prices are absurdly high and for nothing.

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
