We dined here our first night in Milan. The restaurant was on a main street and we could sit outside. We had the four cheese gnocchi which almost looked like a soup and the panna pollo pasta with very little chicken. A glass of wine...More

I had to wait quite a long time before they could sit me, but the food turned out to be quite ordinary. To be honest, I am not sure if they know how to handle risotto properly. They are lucky to be well-situated, with the...More

Very inattentive service. Definitively a tourist trap. Try to find another place to eat in Milan. We waited 45 minutes to get a Pasta Pomodoro and a Pizza which were not very tasteful.

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
