We ate a very tasty lunch here overlooking the square. It was busy even for a week day. The salads were excellent as was the gnocchi and the pizzas. Good service. Just be aware of the cover charge though. It was E3.60 per person and there was only bread served at the table, but it seemed this included service, so... More

I was passing this restaurant on my way from work to my hotel and as it was after 7pm decided to stop for some dinner. I am glad that I did. I had one of the best calzone pizzas that I have had, it was full of flavours and the pizza containing it was just rightly cooked, not soft but... More

My wife and I wanted to get off the main block in front of the Duomo and found this little place. Seems that it has a bit of Jekyll and Hyde personality and we hit it on a good day. We sat outside at one of their tables and enjoyed a leisurely lunch with a couple of pizzas (small) and... More

We came here because we were looking for a pizza place for lunch and were trying to avoid the rather pretentious looking places nearer to the piazza di duomo. The place is nice, great indoor/outdoor seating. The service was quick, attentive and pleasant. The pizza... well, we certainly had better pizzas before, but it made do for the purpose. The... More

We stopped by here for a pizza. The location is just off the main Duomo area. Pizzas are EUR 14 and there is a 3.60 EUR service charge. For some that's expensive but considering its location and the quality of the restaurant it's not bad at all. We were surprised when we checked the menu before sitting down, I heard... More

The food is just OK and the prices are high. Of course you are in the city centre so it is quite normal that you pay the location and the costs related to it . Service average , and food decent may be too oil in different plates , like the tagliata that was swimming in the olive oil .... More

This is a delightful, little restaurant, located away from the Hustle and Bussle of the Shopping District. Well appointed with a wonderful outdoor Patio, great for People Watching. The Food is delicious and the Menu is wide ranging from Pizza, Salads, Pasta and delicious Fish Dishes. My wife and I ended up, eating four times at this place and were... More

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.
