This lovely, quiet cafe/bistro/bar situated in a little yard is a great stop for lunch (the locals have known this for years). Close to the city centre it serves fabulous salads, burgers and other bistro food at reasonable prices. Service is very quick and special requests are dealt with in a nice and efficient way. The interior is also stylish... More

Good spot for a quick bite to eat, tucked away from the busy shopping streets. Tasty dishes, and good service!

Had a good lunch here in March 2017 for a decent price. Inner court on Mancini street, so not too noisy even in terrace. Very nice service and tasty food.

An ideal place for an aperitivo! Well hidden from the noisy via Manzoni, is where you can enjoy delicious small dishes. Sit at the small garden finishing your day while relaxing.

Fancy selection for an aperitivo, with warm food and cold small dishes. Very nice staff. Calm environment, and great to sit outside in their intimate garden when the spring arrives. The aperitivo is served 17.30 already. They also have great Italian coffee.

We were around Milan for shopping and finished in this nice place to have aperitif. It was a really wonderful experience. Great drinks with a really warm service and a reach buffet. We enjoyed a beautiful time and will try to be back before our departing. Cheers.

This is not a traditional Italian restaurant. It mostly caters to young professionals, especially for lunch, who want to eat just one course, reasonably light and fast. It thus has many different salads and other basic dishes, but nothing really "special". It is therefore not for people who want to taste any "real" Italian cuisine. Within these limitations, it is...

The most missing in Milano is terraces. Once you find a nice spot, the advantage they take of a sunny evening in the beginning of october is that the prices of the aperitif are over average. Aperitif in Milano should be sensational, and there are plenty of spots where the buffet is of sensational quality and the drinks are around... More

It is a bit pity that it is hard to find good quality lunch places in the luxury shopping district. We tried this because the terrace looked nice, but the service and food were very poor.

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.
