The cafe is conveniently located in the gallery of the famous shopping centre. This makes the place an ideal spot for a cappuccino or a glass of wine. The last comes with free snacks, by the way. As for the service, it is regular. I...More

Visiting the Duomo di Milano (Milan's Famous Shopping Square) with all the sights and sounds that go with it, would give cause to experience a wonderful lunch, but no Caffe Letterario did not deliver. Wonderful layout, fit out and location...and wonderful menu, to read, but...More

Had a couple of very good drinks for 10€ each, which would have been an already acceptable price. You also get a small selection of food to go with it, making it a decent deal. It is located right in the center, but in a...More

The location is wonderful, inside the Vittorio Emanuele gallery. You can sit outside (remember that they charge more in Italy that way) and have a nice time looking at the gallery and people passing by. But...there are no prices posted outside for coffee or capuccino...More

My sister and I came here for our last meal in Milan, and while it was not a bad meal, it certainly wasn't as good as the other restaurant that's in the same area in the Galleria. The food was decent but pricey; I ordered...More

A growing form of entertainment and dining in Italy is the "happy hour". It usually starts between 6 and 7 pm and can run until quite late. A happy hour offers a café setting with a buffet where the price of a drink includes unlimited...More

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
