Charleston is an easy place for lunch while shopping in Milan. When you are lucky like us you can enjoy the sun on the terrace while having lunch. The menu is simple but good

Since i found this restaurant, I always go there during my visits to Milan. The atmosphere is very pleasant, the design of the place is nice as well. Service is good and mostly fast. The food is perfect, everything I have tried was very delicious and the prices are not so high for the centre of Milan.

DO NOT EAT HERE. Aside from the service being incredibly rude and the food being no better than any other average touristy Italian restaurant, I personally witnessed the waiters taking the uneaten bread from tables and placing them in a deep drawer FULL of other stale rolls. (I could tell they were stale because the bread fell into the drawer... More

This restaurant is one of the worst we have tried in Milan - and we have tried very many. The pizza is awful: small, badly cooked and overpriced. You get to pay a EUR 3.60 cover charge as if you were in an elegant restaurant, while the atmosphere and decor is that of a mediocre pizzeria. And for that, they... More

I have been here several times since October and finally needed to write about this wonderful little hideaway- just a few steps from the Duomo, with a wonderful selection of wines and meats, cheeses, and other small snacks for Happy Hour or aperitivo. I have only been to the wine bar side and not eaten in the restaurant. The staff... 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.
