It is not hard to find a restaurant in central Milan tourist area as there are usually a couple in every side street. Most of them seem to have identical menus that are not very exciting and if you sit outside for atmosphere you just get smoked at. Al Cantinone was only a few steps from our hotel and seemed...

The location is excellent. It's in a very busy area, with a lot of cheap, touristy restaurants, so it was a very good find. I had an excellent risotto, the place is also very nice, there were hardly any tourists; the impression was that this is a restaurant where locals go to eat on a sunday. highly reccommended!

Compared to other restaurants in Milan this was a bit disappointing. Service depending on the waiter (we were serviced by 3 different) okay but not really friendly. Food in that price category should be better. Would not come back.

Very good place to eat in city center! I was there on Saturday evening and it wasn't that crowded as someone here pointed. Food was delicious and service was more than friendly.

Truly enjoyed this traditional trattoria in central Milan- genuine local atmosphere and a wide variety of local dishes. Delicious filet of beef in balsamic sauce and bruschetta with mozzarella di bufala.

Based on previous review I was hoping better. But unfortunately not. The gnocchi came out after 3-5 mins, which gave me a big question how do you get homemade gnocchi to cook THAT fast. And the taste was off, the gnocchi texture did not have any fresh feel, and more so of a soggy ball of starch. The seafood was... More

We ordered tipical miklan dishes that were very good. The best was a risotto with funghi porcini, chestnuts and parmesan chees, really delicious. It is worth the try!!! Personnel very friendly and speak many languages.

Close to the Duomo and La Scala in a quite side street this unpretentious restaurant serves excellent Italian food beautifully prepared. Service is prompt and friendly. Try the risotto with apple, mushrooms and chestnuts, and conclude with a real tiramisu - quite different from the boring concoction that is so often passed off under that name. And a lovely selection... More

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighbourhood 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.
