It is something you'll find everywhere, normal food, like Italian mums and grannies do, and here the variety of choice is just great, and taste - perfect.

We were in La Rinascente on a Saturday afternoon, there was no way to find a sit on the restaurants on the balcony, so we sat inside in De Santis, I ordered a Salmon Panini, and we ordered a bottle of wine, and it was a really great meal, we had a good time, and the service was good.

I'm not a huge panini consumer at home. If they were all like this I would change my eating habits! The bread is not very thin and only lightly toasted. Very light and crisp. I can't tell how many different choices are on the menu but you should be able to get just about anything you want. Delicious for a... More

Three of us were wandering in the food hall of La Rinascente, which is well worth visiting. The displays are fantastic, including extravagant chocolate high-heel shoes. There is a Moet champagne bar. We didn't want a big meal, and settled into De Santis, which has been known for paninis in Milan for years (in another location). The restaurant was busy,... More

De Santis is a very small bar where you can find very good panini. There are few chairs in this bar while it is located inside the upper flower of the Rinascente shopping center, here you have a beautiful view over roof of the Milano's main church: Duomo, where a wood of steeples will delight you...The panini are indeed somewhat...

I have been eating sandwiches made by De Santis since arriving in Milan in 1979 when they were located in Via Meravigli in a hole in the wall. What a fantastic panino! Of all types. They actually remove most of the dough from the panino to leave more room for the filling that gives you a real crunchy experience. The... More

When you go to the mall "La Rinascente" which is located on the Dom, you have to go to the upper deck. There is a very nice Bar with a beautiful view to the Milano Dom. The Prices are high but this is normal for this place

Situated on the 7th floor of La Rinascente, without the actual view of the Duomo. We were there for dessert. The price for a dessert is typically € 6,00. It is probably the best place for dessert if you are in La Rinascente.

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.
