We had just a pizza and a beer but we had to wait forever to checkout, though the place was almost empty. The pizza was really terrible, looked like it was just unfrozen in the microwave oven. Though I'm an Italian native speaker, I couldn't help but notice the modest level of English the waiters were speaking with other customers.... More

Pizza was alright (not as impressive as we expected), but tiramisu - it's a mind blow which you definitely should try.

We left the main square looking for somewhere a little quieter and found this restaurant. The bolognese and carbonara were delicious however we were stung with the 7.20 euro service charge (3.60 per head) which I didn't really appreciate. Tipping is a personal choice and I don't like that forced on me. The service was ok but nothing special -... More

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

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.
