A bit pricey but it is Milan after all and very convenient. You can pick up wine, bread and cheese and be on your way.

We had a simply wonderful lunch here of chicken salad and beef salad, half portions, with wine and bread. There is also a choice of full portions and quarter portions. The half portion is about an entrée size. There is also a choice of hot food. The beef is rare and pulled, with rocket, and delightfully savoury. The chicken was... More

We were in Milan in the winter and were looking for a place to eat close to the Duomo. Most of the cafes on the street had outdoor seating and we wanted an indoor/warm place to have lunch. We decided to stop at the Excelsior mall for lunch, expecting a typical mall food court meal. We were very pleasently surprised.... More

We came across this restaurant while we were roaming in Milan Center. It is in the downstairs of Excelsior Milano. The first thing attracted me was the super market downstairs. Than we have seen the quality of the people who has chosen to dine in this restaurant and decided to give it a try. Pricewise, it is quite expensive (compared... More

located in the basement of excelsior (an ex movie theater) and right above the food store the open space restaurant offers a diversity of food ranging from sushi to the most Classic Italian dishes. What is special is the quality of the raw material coming from the food store. We tried a "cotoletta Milanese" that was huge, but delicious, rarely... More

The place is located in one of the most trendy fashion concept store in Milan but the atmosphere is not aligned to it. Tables, lighting and furniture are not really innovative and the service is pretentious and inefficient (they forget your orders and takes time to have a waiter available...). Food is correct but not special, prices are high. You... More

Based in the basement of the Exelcior store, you don't go here for the view, but for the food, which is a way above average, and with a very qualified staff.

If you have been on Italy in NY, you will understand the inspiration for that. The market, the wine store, and the restaurant are all amazing! At the restaurant, try the Polpo Crocante, it's extraordinary!

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.
