When asked to recommend a solid, unpretentious place in the heart of the city, a Milanese friend-of-a-friend recommended Osteria dei Poeti. It was spot-on! Unique menu, amazingly affordable wine list and friendly, no-fuss service! They even have their own cheese cave!

Great costoletta alla milanese. The wine served by glaces was very acceptable. Fair price. Nice service.

Brera captures the real essence of the city. It is an
excellent mix between history and modernity, where
tradition meets innovation. Here design and beauty
reign. On Via Brera there are the famous Pinacoteca
(galleries), the National Gallery of Modern and
Antique Art, and the Academy of Fine Arts. Interior
design boutiques and intellectual cafes are typical of
the district. Walking along Via Madonnina is a must to
