With a performance of La Boheme beckoning at La Scala at 8pm, we had booked at table at the, relatively small, restaurant that bears the name of a 'god father' of Italian (relatively) fine dining, relatively early at 6pm. We were glad we had, because although the restaurant clearly knows how to effectvely service the pre-theatre (mainly non-Italian at that time of day!) diners, it seemed (perhaps unfairly judged) somewhat disorganised but, after all, this is Italy! The restaurant was in fact recommended (for good food and location, adjacent to La Scala) by an Italian (origin), 'high profile' restaurant figure and friend and certainly the food was very good, although the choice of dishes, if you adhere to the pre/post theatre menu was really quite limited and not that exciting. The staff, in particular the maitre d, were friendly, the decor/environment was pleasant and overall Il Marchesino was good for pre theatre dining.
