I ate two meals at this restaurant. It sits on the third floor of the modern museum at the Duomo in Milan. We had a little trouble finding it at lunch time: the restaurant entrance is tucked underneath the circular staircase. You can see the circular staircase (think Gugenheim museum) across the Duomo -- so the secret is looking for... More

We visited in January and so this was a nice, stylish place with great aperitivo to get out of the cold before we went over to dinner. This place was suggested by local friends and was definitely worth the stop over. Dinner is served with an overview of the Piazze del Duomo, but the aperitivo is in the back in... More

A high-level restaurant with a warm welcoming allows to come for both business and leisure and never disappoint. The view provides an incredible atmosphere as long as you remember to book a table in front of the Duomo Cathedral. In case it's not available try on the back for the view of the Palazzo Reale. Food choice is pretty tasty... More

The most exquisite fish by Italian standards you can find in Milano in a unique historic setting. The view on the Duomo Square is unique. And for history buffs, the history and architecture of the building are an a pleasant addition. Not to be missed

Location is simply fantastic, just few steps from Duomo Church and Rinascente Department store. View is simply amazing, over Duomo square and cathedral. Food menu is very wide and complete, with a real Italian traditional taste.. Wine selection is also wide and rich. Food is really excellent(believe me, I am Italian). Service is good, not eccelent. Quite expensive, about 90... More

After a wonderful visit to the NovoCento Museum, we were eager to enjoy a lunch right in the building. Little did we know, that such an outstanding meal awaited us at the top of the ramp! The burrata mozzarella appetizer was superb. My spaghetti with mussels and figs was quite delicious. My mate was very satisfied with his insalata mista... More

Recommended by the hotel concierge, we went to this restaurant. The view is great, but food is so so. To me it's too salty, and I believe can find somewhere better taste with lower price.

came in for a drink after visiting the museum, very impressive entrance and an amazing view. I was sitted at the bar and ordered Bellini. The bar keeper started to look for the ingrediences and was all the time traced and critized by the manager. It made me feel extremely uncomfortable. After the mediocre and somehow improvized drink was served... More

And the food is pretty damn good too! The restaurant is nicely decorated with good service. Recommend the raw pink prawns - so sweet and veal rib eye - melt in the mouth. Tip- get a table by the window and watch the world go by from above.

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighborhood Profile
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 view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
