Description: In 1867 Paolo Biffi, royal confectioner, opened the first cafè in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. Since then, just under Mengoni's vault, "Biffi in Galleria" has become a classical meeting point for the Milanesi and for the great number of tourists and operators in town. Nowadays Biffi reproposes its various and qualified services, going back to its best tradition, in order to meet all customers' requirements

“Tasty, leisurely lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014

Good service and very decent food. A starter of smoked goose breast and goose salami turned out to be really good. Pastas and risottos excellent, and a pretty good wine list. Like other Galleria venues the vast and airy glass enclosure makes for great people watching.
A point: it seems more than a little ridiculous for reviewers to complain about the expense of a meal when the menu, conspicuously displayed outside of the retaurant, lists every single item together with its price.

“Not worth your money!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014 via mobile

The food was cold and tasteless. The staff were extremely rude, unprofessional and were literally shouting at one another from one side of the restaurant to the other. Overpriced for such a bad dinner. Would not recommend it to anyone!

“Great food and service for a quick lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013

I was given 1 hour for lunch during my tour at the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele area. So, we walked into the 1st restaurant we saw. When I told the attentive waiter, he gave me a smile and jokingly promised to service our food within 15 minutes if we pay him double. We did a quick look at the menu and ordered the famous saffron risotto, Milanese veal, pasta Bolognese and salmon pasta and a bottle of wine. Exactly 15 minutes later, all our food was served.
The saffron risotto and veal was one of the best I tried in Milan. The Chianti classico recommended by the waiter compliment the foods really well. As the restaurant is located in the walkway of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, we could admire the Galleria from our seats.
We really enjoy this meal, for the great service, food and ambience, without paying double at the end.

“Delicious lunch at a famous cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2013

This cafe is at the Vittorio Emanuele, dubbed the dining room of Milan. The cafe itself is famous because Hemingway ate there. We found the prices somewhat pricy but wanted to try the place. We had delicious risotto and lasagna. Our waiter was attentive.Our group decided that it was me of our best meals in Milan. I would go back there if I return to Milan.

Beware that there is a cover charge just for eating there. We found that this is quite common in Milan. I think it was Euro3.50 per person.
