Perfect place to refuel while sightseeing in the Duomo area. Big selection of paninis for €5 as well as salads etc. Service was quick and there are tables outside. Just what we wanted!

Great lunch or drink spot. It's a cafe and doesn't look much, but you have to judge it on that basis and not a fine dining venue. Huge variety of freshly made food of the panini and sandwich variety and drinks with good prices and service. The Spritz menu for €5 is great value and includes at 250ml of Aperol... More

Had a wonderful light lunch. Full of locals which told me the food must be good. Recommend it for a sandwich lunch. Simple good food.

We came here on the advice of the TA reviews after we just arrived to the city. We stopped here because we wanted something relatively quick and nearby. TA let us down on this one. The cafe had three panini selections available to us when we sat down at 3:30. We ordered two choices. They were mediocre at best and... More

We had mozzarella sandwich with olive and the mozzarella with prosciutto. Both were ok. I do not Know how this restaurant is ranked 27th. In Milan. They are far better restaurants than this one.

I don't quite understand the position this place has on tripadvisor. The paninis were fine, but I've had much better in Rome and Florence. I guess they could be the best in Milan, but I still don't see how they could be better than some of the restaurants in top 50. If you want to try authentic paninis and can... More

We walked into G.B. Bar only to be greeted by a very enthusiastic waiter named Umberto. All i have to say is he scores 11/10 for friendly customer service. Superb. He explained the variety of paninis that were available and added commentary about what flavours and fillings to go for. If you are a novice in italian dining then take... More

All sandwiches are the same price, pick the one you like, they are all great! The service is lovely and the Aperol Spritz tastes even better here at the terrace.

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.
