I don't understand why this has received so many good reviews. I'd say this is a typical tourist place even charging for the cover. Awesome location with great view but extremely poor food and bad service. Any trattoria will be a nicer experience.
But if you have to go ask for a table facing the Duomo.

You must sit at a table with a view. You pay for the view but it is worth the price. We especially loved the duck confit and the very pricey tagliolini tartufo

The location is marvellous, just opposite the Galleria Vittorio Emmanuele with a perfect view on the place and the dome of Milan. But that is the best you can expect. The rest is average, including the staff which is somewhat away from being polite. You may enter the restaurant via a helical way from a museum. To get seated you may ask a waiter, and perhaps he will place you near to the windows. Then you wil get the menue, and, what is not listed herein, in the cover, which is 10 € per person. The meal we had was ok, good but not exeptional, but you definitely have to pay for each view with you meal. So we paid 75 € for two starters and two glasses of wine and one bottle of water. It was an experience...

I feel aweful writing this review, on paper it should have been a great experience especially as we had such a great waiter.

However the food was lacklustre - there is little I can say about it other than the wine was great!

Its expensive and I cant recommend for dinner - sorry my TripAdvisor friends!

After visiting the 900, we went to the Giacomo on a whim. We got there at 540 and there were very accommodating and got us a table at the terrace. What a view! The waiter we had was very knowledgable and gave great recommendations for our meals and wine. Other people complained the restaurant being expensive but I found the prices to be average. Dinner with a glass of wine, first and second course plus dessert and two bottles of water came to 100 euros exactly. This is normal for Canadian restaurant outings.
