OK but nothing more

Don Lisander got good reviews on Trip Advisor and was recommended by our travel agent and concierge. It was just ok but nothing wonderful and I thought it was overpriced for what we had. Given the great reviews that was disappointing. The best thing about it was that it was open on Sunday.

We had a wonderful meal at Don Lisander and were perfectly taken care of the wonderful head-waiter Stefano. We sat outside, yet under an open roof, perfect food, perfect wines (we had a bottle of Amarone) and really enjoyed a wonderful evening. And yes, hey, it's a little bit pricy, but you'll get value for money, folks. Hi Stefano, I... More

As a prelude to a visit to La Scala, we thought this would be a wonderful meal and the astronomic prices certainly gave us this impression. In reality, the food was dreadfully over-priced and not particularly good. Nor was there very much of it. The bill came to Euros 175.00!! Frankly, we would not have rated this meal to be... More

I was at this place a about a week ago. We saw it when we walked by, and it lookes so nice and cosy that we desided to eat dinner there. We were seated by a smiling and polite waitress. We got the menu which was only in Italian, but the owner of the place speaks very good english, he... 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

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 be expected... 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.
