Amazing food, engaging conversation

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. The overall experience was so positive than being in Milan we'll... More

Done Lisander is located right in Via Manzoni, in the hearth of Milano and 100m from famed Teatro alla Scala. And everything in this restaurant oozes Milanese style. From the entrance (which doubles as an open air space in summer) to the interior design, which is cosy and friendly. The highlight is obviously the food, with a variety of international... More

While visiting the wonderful city of Milan and experiencing the city's rich history and fabulous shopping we stumbled upon the beautiful restaurant "Don Lisander". The restaurant was in walking distance from our hotel, "Hotel Manzoni" - also to the "Four Season's" and the Armoni Hotel" - fantastic location. We had an amazing dinner - the food was delicious and the... More

My wife and I were blessed to recently be in Milano. We asked the concierge of our hotel about a nice place to dine. Fortunately, he mentioned Don Lisander!! The waiter was courteous and helpful, and the food was delightful. Wine recommendation was on point. All in all, a most enjoyable experience.

Chance and luck brought us to this great restaurant. We were traveling with our friends and it was their turn to choose a restaurant. We were walking along the Via and simply found it. How lucky for all of us. The restaurant has outdoor and indoor seating and is set back from the street so the outside dining is quiet.... More

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
