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

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
