I had eaten quite well at lunch time and so only wanted a part dinner. I chose the veal to start and it came thinly slice and with a dot of tuna cream on each slice and served with rocket and green beans (cold). Delicious. My partner had the Osso Bucco. He was in seventh heaven with it and savoured... More

I had a lunch with tartare, octopus pasta and tempura style fries with a prosecco. I was impressed by the quality of ingredients and the size of the portions but also the presentations looked great. Nice staff for a great service

We came here late, I'm talking 940-10pm and they close at 1030pm. The waiter Marcello could not have been more friendly helpful and welcoming! At no point did we feel rushed or unwelcome and the food... The food was fantastic and the biggest portions I've had yet in Italy! We got the Beef Tartare, Beef Filet, Veal, Pasta and seared...

This restaurant is tucked in to the side of the De La Ville Hotel. We ate there two nights in a row. The ambiance is serene and comfortable. The restaurant was not all all crowded, which initially concerned me. Perhaps it was because we were early diners. But the food was exceptional. We both began with a seared foie gras... More

Went to L'Opera with colleagues and the first thing to note was that despite its location, near Duomo and La Scala, it was very quiet all the time we were there. However, it is attached to a hotel and sometimes hotel-based restaurants are unfairly marked down. The bread service was a little uninspiring and the service was not terribly friendly,... More

I was taken here for a meal by my partner for my 40th. When we arrived she had arranged for flowers to be there on the table from our children. It was lovely. The food was absolutely gorgeous and the service was first class.

There are places where eating becomes an experience that goes well beyond the need to get some food. It becomes the discovery of new and unexpected tastes, the beauty of the dishes, the wise choice of wines to create an unforgettable experience of pleasure. Add a flawless service, a skilled sommellier to help you out with the drinks from a... More

Great food and not so large portions, which is great. Staff connected the dots and realized some people were vegetarians and therefore magically produced fish as a main course. Very smart. Great sorbet for dessert!

I stayed at the Hotel de la Ville, to which this restaurant is attached. It appears to have little traffic other than hotel guests, but that is too bad. The food was quite good, albeit a bit expensive, and the service was excellent. Try it if you want something quiet near the Duomo and La Scala.

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.
