The rain in Milan drove us off the open streets and having seen good reviews we sought out this restaurant specifically because it provided good gluten free options for my wife. Considering this restaurant is in the middle of one of the most popular and busy shopping arcades in Milan the service was attentive yet slightly formal and the food... More

La Locanda Del Gatto Rosso is located on the East end of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuelle II, exiting to via Ugo Foscolo. It looks like a trattoria, with indoor and outdoor (still under the Galleria roof) tables. Nicely appointed, with white tablecloths, green plants, mood lighting, all on a mosaic marble floor, this is a pleasant comfortable restaurant. Service was... More

The only negative "rub" for us was being seated. We'd been there before so we knew the food was worth putting up with a little irritation about being seated. Yes, the tables are close but it's always an opportunity to get a more authentic dining experience. Luckily, Emanuel was our server and very agreeable, patient and flexible. We're not picky... More

I found it from tripadvisor. There are two brothers who are the owner. They don't treat good and they welcome you very bad but the two Emanuel who are in the middle are very good. They are warm and help you with lots of fun. The mix grill fish was great. Also the grilled eggplant. Totall score was 5

Great food and great service. We sat outside and it was a fun experience, although the tables are set too close together.

I've been here several times, both private and on business the food and service are consistently good, with plenty to choose from for a vegetarian like myself. Great wine selection and service. Definitely one of my favorites in Milan.

So good we went 4 times in 2 days. Every single dish we had was great. Service also wonderful. Fun to people watch as a bonus. Obviously in middle of it all.

The food was superb. Risotto was great, fried cod fish extremely fresh and their pasta was truly tasty. However the entire experience was marred by a rude waiter who was condescending and literally threw the bill at us.

I liked the service and atmosphere. The food was OK. But I think it is overpriced. However, that is expectable taking into consideration it's location.

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.
