Had the pizza parmigiana and penne with cauliflower, very tasty good portion sizes can't beat the location and the service is multilingual. Definitely at the top of my list for the next trip to Milan

Set in one of the aisles of the Galleria, this lovely decorated restaurant is always a good place to return. Service has an eye for detail. Food is very good. Carmine e' come un artista - chiedetelo per il branzino al sale. Grazie Carmine.

This restaurant, located in the Galleria is a lovely gem. It is larger than it looks from outside. The food - pumpkin risotto and spaghetti arrabiatta - were accompanied by very good bread, washed down with Pinot Grigio. The other dishes we saw served all looked wonderful and all together, everyone looked happy and pleased with their respective food. For... More

Selected this restaurant for convenience to La Scala. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, but the food was mediocre at best. My wife's risotto fondutta was like a gelatinous mass inside of an overly salty and tough parmigiana "birds nest". My veal cotelleta Milanese seemed like it was made from chopped veal, breaded in thick cornmeal and cooked in... More

While walking around the duomo we decide to enter this place among many others and were greatly surprised; home made pasta and great local wines with excellent service!! Worth visiting!

Among the places I have been in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele Vittorio Emanuele, this is the best for food. By far. Good service but the food is amazing. And what a location.

Staff very friendly although a bit pushy in trying to make oyu order more things. Quite attentive in seriving the wine as soon as the glasses were about empty. Pizza with Ham and Mozzarella di Bufala very tasty. As usual they charge the "coperto" bread olive oil and etc. 4euro per person. However the bread was very good as well... More

Arrived in Milan without any particular plans for where to eat lunch. Looked at several places near the duomo, found them all either very expensive or cheap but awful looking. Finally decided that, since it would be our last real meal in Italy, we'd splurge. After considering several options under the shopping arcade near the duomo, settled on this one.... More

We decided in this restaurant after chatting with one of the friendly waiter who recommended some dishes at the entrance. We ordered a pasta, a pizza and cod fish and all were excellent. We were totally stuff and could not even have dessert. Overall a wonderful dinning experience.

Thank acwt

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.
