Went there for lunch for business. My host is a regular and ordered for me. The place is an institution in Milan and considered one of those places that you have to go. I had been there in the past but not recently. The setting is very nice and would advise to eat outdoors. Service is what to... read more

I was drawn in to Don Lisandar because it looked so beautiful. They also didn't have an English menu (I took this to be a good sign). However, the experience was just very poor. In fact, I ended up going to another restaurant afterwards to have a proper meal! Let me preface...I'm not a large person. And while I love... More

This restaurant represents what we love in eating out in Italy. Small but cozy restaurant with a superb menu full of choices yet not overwhelming. The food is fantastic, innovative, tasty and fresh. The supreme Italian Ham (Culatello di Zibello) was our favourite but also we had one of the best grilled seabasses (Branzino alla Griglia) ever - cooked perfectly... More

This was our second visit at this restaurant the first time we went was nice but the second time was dreadful. My Grandma and I had salmon with chips and vegetables for main course, the salmon was cold and the chips looked and tasted like they were 3 day old and we felt very sick after we ate it. My... More

glad we booked as it was busy all evening. It's our second visit and we were not disappointed. A good choice food and an excellent wine list. A very pleasant evening with good service.

I've spent so many years and so many nights in Milan, and I've always wanted to try Don Lisander, but you know how it goes, there's always something else going on. Now I managed to have dinner there, and I have to say, the place is beautiful and the staff is very nice, and very prepared and professional. The only... More

During our visit we ate at Don Lisander twice. Once alone and once for a business meeting. Both times we were impressed with the service and food. Highly recommend.

From the moment I walked in until I left Stefano Marazzato made my time at Don Lisander not only excellent but engaging. I enjoyed the recommendations that the staff provided and the service was perfect. I came for the Osso Buco but left with a life long memory.

My husband and I had dinner after a concert at Teatro ALLA Scala. We had a warm welcome at this restaurant, hidden behind the main street. The staff were very attentive and professional speaking different languages. The decor of the restaurant is really tasteful and the meal was delicious.
