In designing the new environment of restaurant VUN Andrea Aprea, architect Flaviano Capriotti focused on the culinary experience offered by Chef Andrea Aprea. The result is an environment in which the protagonist is the food. Furnishings, accessories and decorative elements are the tools that accompany visitors during the restaurant’s sensorial journey. The environment is intimate and cosy, with elevated attention to every detail. At Restaurant VUN, the philosophy of Chef Aprea surprises and excites everyone who tastes his food.

We went to Vun for dinner on a weekday's night with prior reservation and the seats are well prepared at a good corner with excellent privacy. Services are perfect and every staff are very professional on their own positions.
Foods are good as a signature restaurant in a five stars hotel without complain. I personally prefer foods with light and fresh tastes, but Vun is serving foods with a little bit strong taste and favour. But I do think it is the tradition of Milan cuisine as most of the meals I had in Milan are with stronger taste than the other cities such as Florence and Venice. In brief, Vun is an awesome place for fine dining in Milan with excellent service and romantic atmosphere.

We booked 3x1* restaurants during our 10 day train trip to Sicily. This was the only one worthy of its star.
It's a softly lighted restaurant in the Park Hyatt right in the centre approached through the lobby. We were offered a choice of two tables. Service was prompt personal and engaging. Our waiter was (unusually) directive about what he thought we'd like. I told him we'd probably have a starter and a main and there was no "up talk" to eat more. Indeed he said there would be a number of pre-courses so it should be fine. The amuse bouche (not sure about the plural) were all good - some mussel nibbles and a tuna "bite" - all good. Oh and a soft cheese thing.
I wouldn't normally choose a Caprese Salad in a posh restaurant but he kind of nudged us in that direction and that's what we had. It's claim to fame is that the mozzarella had been in some way liquidised - presumably frozen - and then coated in a very thin shield of sugar. The result of all that was you tapped it with a knife and the cheese that flowed quite cool onto the tomatoes and basil. A neat trick. Very nice to eat and, of course this meant that they could charge you 28€. I had a small fillet of John Dory (St.Pierre) on asparagus with "hot" mayonnaise. Quite delicious - the mayonnaise was indeed hot but then seemed to settle into what I would know as mayonnaise. My partner had pasta with a poached egg and summer truffles which he said was very good.
The sommelier arrived to choose a wine and we settled on a pinot noir from Northern Italy which was very good. She was a charming woman and knew her stuff - of course she did she trained at the Waterside Inn at Bray. (She told us that she was on the point of leaving the Waterside Inn because she felt her English was letting the side down - M. Roux said "No - you can man the telephones for a month". Her English improved quickly and dramatically).
We finished with 5 cheeses, all of which were very good.
At the end of the meal the sommelier asked if she could offer us a special type of grappa. It was aged in oak, arrived in a wax sealed test-tube. Interesting but I am not really a convert.
This was a nice evening. The food was competent and the service just so.
There was only one disappointment. A family who seemed to like Coca Cola had brought their baby into dinner and in an effort to stop it crying pushed it around the table. OK the hotel have to make a buck and service their customers but it didn't impress me.
To put the lid on it this was the only excellent meal we had in Italy.

After some very average dinners in Milano (Nobu, Don Carlos, Savini...) we tried VUN during our stay at Hyatt. What a surprise! The restaurant has 1 Michelin star, and they deserve it.

We took a slow food menu (North-South), and that was a good choice.
The service was mostly excellent (however some times waiters were inconsistent).
The food was good, nicely presented, fresh, and innovative.
Unfortunatelly, the dessert was quite boring: Baba. They should tried better.

Anyway, the atmosphere was elegant, and I could recommend this place for couples.
We'll be back!

Second visit to this restaurant. Not nearly as good as first time. Food was good but nothing special. The spahettoni starter was too salty for my palate and the John Dory was tasteless even though it came with a sauce. Skipped dessert and had cheese instead. Overall the restaurant just nothing more than good. Considering the prices and the fact it has one Michelin star it should deliver more. Not sure I would return.

My first visit to this wonderful restaurant. Believe it just received its first Michelin star in 2012 or 2013. Very very deserving. Service superb as well as the ambiance. Food terrific. We had for starters the vegetable garden and the foie gras terrine with lentil soup. Both excellent. The main courses were the grouper and the pork belly. Again two wonderful dishes. For dessert the pumpkin soufflé which took about 20-25 minutes to prepare so gave us a chance to relax. Besides our choices we received 4 or so extra small bits to taste. Each exquisite. For wine we shared a fiano d'avellino. A great meal and the total for everything was 210€. Of course you could go much higher if you opted for one of the tasting menus or bought a more expensive wine than we had. Very very highly recommended. Actually think this may have been the best dinner I have had in Milan in many years.
