As a vegan, I called this traditional Italian restaurant before I visited, just to ensure that I could find food to eat as the online menu seemed rather meaty. A friendly man answered the phone and told me not to worry; they would cater for me diary requirements without problem. Indeed, when I arrived, I left all the ordering of... More

Staying at The Place Manzoni nearby we walked past the restaurant a few times during the days we spent in Milano. Decided to eat there our last night. Nice atmosphere, not too crowded, mostly locals eating here this evening. We had a nice table in the back, did not book in advance. Effective and friendly waitress speaking good english ensured...

I went with my mother to Don Lisander as we wanted to enjoy a nice evening together outside, food being secondary in a way. We were very positive surprised and every thing served was excellent – well above expectations: the sushi Italian style as starter, the pasta with prawns and zucchini, the sea-bass, the dessert, all was very good and...

We were on a weekend trip and looking exactly for something with a romantic ambiente which this restaurant offered! Our waitress was a young but very... More

I went alone for lunch after checking the menu outside. The restaurant is quite on an expensive side with a traditional Cuccina Italiana. They have a lovely terrace where I get a table. Waiters were attentive. I love the food - I ordered gazpacho soup and branzino - lovely. I would recommend this place to my friends and would return... More

The night I was there they had a large party from the Men's Fashion week. The staff didn't seem to focus on the other tables. I found the attitude of the waiters to be very remote and while my waiter replaced a meal with a different dish both the initial offering and the substitute were not special. They are too... More

The Menu is always great! - I have been for lunch and dinner, with clients and friends. I have found the service excellent and very friendly. The food is varied, traditional & regional. The desserts are great and you will often find something different alongside the traditional dishes. As soon as the weather starts to get warm, I find myself... More

The restaurant is very central close to via Napoleone and other fashions streets. for a lunch it is to recommend. It is rather expensive but a good service, a tasty food, and a good mix between tourists and locals. I have been twice during the past 3 years and could easily return. I don't know how the place is for... More
