Visiting Milan should always include a visit to Giacomo Argengario. The food is very good, with very pleasing specials. The location is absolutely top notch -- breathtaking views of Duomo with open windows onto the plaza. The energy is frenetic.

This was very disappointing. I was told of the restaurant by a local stranger who meant well. The atmosphere was fine. The lounge by the lift was prettier than the restaurant however. The food was not very good. It wasn't horrible, but with their prices one expects much tastier food.

The key selling point of this restaurant is the great view that one gets of plaza duomo. The food here is not too bad and the service is very good. I came here for lunch and my experience was more than pleasing. The pasta dishes are a little of the small side so you could if you are hungry have... More

We have done a dozen trips to Italy over the last decade and this restaurant stands out as the worst experience we have ever had. By far. Yes, it has a view over the Duomo, but such a magnificent view is not enough to justify or to make it up for the less-than-average cuisine it offers and for the terrible... More

They did an excellent job for my special day. Everything was perfecto ;-) I preferred beef with fried potatoes; my wife selected a pasta. Whatever you choose, you will satisfied.

Sit in the winter garden and admire the view. Just watch and eat and watch and drink and watch. A stunning place in a wonderful city. Professional service. Our table for 9h30 PM was not ready so we where invited to a bottle of wine at the bar. The food was very good, interesting menu with a good wine list.... More

My wife and I had dinner there our second night in Milan and we had the best time. The entire staff was welcoming and polite and the food was great! We had a table with a perfect view of the duomo. Can't wait to come back next time we are in Milan.

Been to this restaurant two times, both for the magnificent view of the Duomo and the square, with visitors.The dining experience will definitely impress your guests. Decor is luxury chic, very "Milanese", food is good but not exceptional, however nowsdays very difficult to find a restaurant "has-it-all" with affordable prices, at least they don't charge "rip-you-off" prices, in average you...

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
