If someone were to describe this restaurant objectively, you wouldn't go: above a museum with a view of the Duomo. It would conjure images of minimalist functionality and just-good-enough touristique pasta. However, the subjective truth is so much better. The view is wonderful, the waiters could... read more

One of the best places for fine dinning in Milan with great views of the cathedral and the piazza. The service is great with beautifully presented food, which tastes as good as it looks. It is a bit pricey, but what you expect for quality of food and service. Make sure to book in advance, especially on the weekends for... More

What an lovely experience. We had dinner here for my birthday per recommendation online, we had the pork, the steak and the cod. We were thoroughly delighted with all our food and the cocktails we're to die for! (Many apple martins and hugos ordered!) The waiters were an absolute charm and went out of their way to make us feel... More

We had dinner there and the view of the Duomo was magnificent. As you walk in there is a room on the right with a glass wall/ceiling facing the Duomo. The rest of the restaurant does not have a view, so if you go for the view make sure you are seated in the room on the right. As for... More

The restaurant is located in the fantastic Museum Novecento, in the Piazza del Duomo, as such the view to the Cathedral is magnificent. Because of that, the restaurant charges prices that belong in a Michelin-rated restaurant for very mediocre food and their staff believe they are in an Alain Ducasse restaurant as opposed to a bad trattoria. Frankly, I did... More

Probably more the restaurant for wining and dining corporate customers than taking the family out for dinner. Still, couldn't fault the food nor the service. Very reasonably priced wine list, with ample opportunity to splurge if the mood takes you.

We has lunch there with friends and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were lucky enough to be seated with views of the Duomo, our friends had booked in advance, so we benefited from the views. We ordered a starter and then a range of entrees and mains to share amongst all. The staff thoughtfully divided up the mixed anti pasti for... More
