Restaurant makes fine food, as it should, since being fine dining restaurant. However there are issues with service. At first drinks came out real slowly and we also had wait for our wines quite a while. Restaurant seems to have a sommelier, but he just pours wine to glasses and actual recommendations are done by waiters. In our case we... More

Our waiter Andrea was excellent. Food and wine were perfect and the view is the best in Milan. We'll come back!

Dining with a view is a plus anywhere you go, but the seating arrangement at the terrace converted into a dining room is too crowded, space is too noisy with high pitched diners. Both food and service were good, not exceptional. I would reccomend this place for its views, probably the best view of the Duomo Cathedral in Milan at... More

Hard to beat setting and elegant. Nightime view of the cathedral is so beautiful as to be distracting. Food was good, particularly risotto milanese with bone marrow. Attentive service and good wine list. Raw shrimp is typical appetizer, but fairly bland. Not cheap but pretty special.

A friend had recommended this restaurant for its great food and view but we never got to enjoy either. Having tried to book by email from home but without response, we asked our hotel to book for us. When we turned up, there had been a mistake and the restaurant was actually closed for a private event. The staff member... More

I visited the place for a late lunch (late lunches are an issue in Italy, as it's a challenge to find a place that will serve you) and I won't lie that my choice was made because of the restaurant's privileged location at Piazza del Duomo. The view is probably the best one you can get (besides McDonald's, that is... More

The Park Hyatt hotel booked us for a quick lunch. It's a small restaurant with glass windows to the Piazza Duomo, on the 4th floor. Just great. Not expecting much for the food but surprisingly food was tasty, from the "Burrata" to the Entrecote we ate well. The champagne is still served on the old large flat glasses. Service was... More

I visited this restaurant with my wife a few days ago. My wife and I agreed that the tastes of meals were good and we espcecially liked sea food salad and fried seafoods. However, their prices were a bit more expensive than other Italian restaurant in the same quality. Also, the staff were very helpful and friendly. The most disapointed... More
