Saw lots of office workers going in here, and could see why. Great selection of foods, being prepared and cooked in front of you but self service. Had a nice lasagna, salmon pasta and salad at a very reasonable cost. Would eat here again.

Getting a fast lunch in Milan's city center might be a hectic experience in particular for a large group. At Brek, mainly thanks to a very helpful manager, Andrea, things are smooth and easy. The food is good and people are very friendly.

Having tried this chain restaurant in Padua and Venice, Brek was the first restaurant we were looking for when we arrived Milan. We chose it mostly because of its relatively low price (it is a self-service restaurant), but also because of the quality of its...More

A self-serve Italian restaurant that serves a little bit of everything from pizza to pasta to burgers. It has a cute interior but the food is merely average. The pizza oven looks like a traditional wood-fired oven but is actually a gas replica. The pizza...More

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

I don't think it is essential to book in this place. It seems large enough to accommodate several customers at once. In any case, according to their website, you may contact them by phone, fax and e-mail: Phone: +39 02... More
