We spent a lovely coffee break enjoying delicious ice cream. Good place to drop in after visiting Sforza Castle (Castello Sforzesco).

My wife and I visited on 22 February and ordered the lasagne and and flatbread. The flatbread was ok and was solely responsible for the one star rating. The lasagne was terrible. There was no meat in it whatsoever and was just cheese and pasta....More

They served up a terribly burnt melanzana parmigiana. Really bad. And it had cheese sprinkled on the edges so as to hide it. As it was a round individual serving, it made half the dish inedible. Seriously. So "brutta figura". Don't go!

Filthy... Dropped in for an espresso without checking reviews (rookie mistake) and wouldn’t have even left a review here... but - I almost bumped into one of the staff in the bathroom because he couldn’t be bothered to lock the door, to make it worse...More

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
