My wife and I were just waiting to be served when aome customer after insistently watching her first touched her and then make loud comments. The place is maybe full of would-be models looking for ways to improve their income. Stay well away!!!

The service and pastries were great. The capuccino was tasty. The brioche with cream must be tried. The slight lemon aroma suits the crunchiness of the brioche excellently.

This place is famous, and known as one of the best in the world, I don't think so. First of all, the staffs were not that friendly and were trying to keep up with guests demands. Their cakes, are very decent (I ordered their so called "special almond cake" and few finger bite cakes). The bill came up to over... More

The decor is stunning in lime green and the staff beautifully dressed and very professional. The crab salad and wine was really good but somehow Marchesi lacked atmosphere. It was a little too sterile and the strip lighting in the ceiling very hard on the eyes. A lovely experience that I enjoyed but not sure I'd repeat - back to... More

The atmosphere is very posh, and makes you feel high-society (of course you are!). Coffee is amzingg, all the desserts are delicious (i been here 3 times in 4 days, just to be sure) and the service is friendly. And you will love the decor!!!

Very good stuff. Good espressos and cappuccino. The best brioches in town! The only problem is no place to sit.

After a morning's shopping there is nothing nicer than sitting down to a light snack in one of Milan's institutional pasticceria's and there is no better than Marchesi. The Italian's like the French know and execute the simple pleasures in life so well, elegantly and with flair. Both extend this to their eating and drinking with cakes being an art... More

This place is one of the best, very authentic and serve quality pastry. For sure worth a visit to get your morning coffee with some delicious croissant or sweets. Some seats wouldn't make anything bad though it would also mean making the cafe a bit bigger.

This place has been founded in 1848 and it's an average patisserie. They prepare a good espresso and the service is very good. Cons are: almost always very crowded. No tables to seat. But this small place is so rich in atmosphere and in one of the most characteristic areas in Milano. Expensive.

I felt like I was part of a Wes Anderson movie set! Such an eclectic place! Everything at Marchesi is refined..the decoration, the service, the tastes..It feels like you enter in a small pastry kingdom full of delicacies, pastel colors and kind figures. Yes, it is a little bit pricey but it definitely worths every cent. In my opinion, it... More

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighborhood Profile
Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
