Located on the 7th floor of La Rinascente with the other food outlets. Serving decent cocktails and food. The food however was rather average, not horrible but not tasty either. The service was rather lacklustre and they ignored us from the start, ordering and even paying the bill. There is additional seating outside with view of the duomo and piazza.

We had a lovely lunch at this beautiful spot. It is located on the top floor of La Rinascente department store. It was worth browsing the food court afterwards complete with chocolate shoes.

This was THE best bar for cocktails, I would recommend the watermelon cocktail!! The views are incredible and the vibe is very chilled and cosy, on a warm day it's just perfect! It's around €15 a cocktail but they are well worth it as you pay the premium for the view!! I would 100% go back here!

Friendly service, hippy and chic crowd with locals, great drinks that come with great aperitif foods. Had a 15€ drink, with included olives, chips and a plate of delicious antipasto, nearly got our stomach full with that. The view of duomo is specta ular.

Other than the beautiful views of the Duomo, and the decent quality of the cocktails (nothing to rave about though!), I don't have anything positive to say about this place. Drinks are expensive, but that is to be expected given the location of the bar. There is no excuse however for the very poor service: very long wait and terrible... More

I will start by saying it's expensive - any drink is easily going to cost you 15 euros but... It's totally worth it to enjoy a nice sunny day and be next to the Duomo. Go there for a drink and a chat with a friend or your partner, you will not regret it! In my experience, it was easy... More

If you want great views of the Duomo then head to the terrace at il Bar at the top of the Rinascente department store. Unless you arrive early it is very difficult to get a table outside on the terrace. This not really a place for lunch or a snack as the food is average and overpriced. However, it is... More

Of course when you are going to last floor of rinascente with Duomo view you don't expect to go an economic place but at least I want to receive a good service for a price I pay.

Me and my mother ordered a glass of mixed fresh citrus juices and Aperol Spritz cocktail. The quality was great, but we were waiting to receive the menu about 10 minutes, we received the order in 15 minutes and I was waiting for the bill 15 min more after asking about it. It was just 2 glasses of drinks, nothing... More
