A pedestrian Street, full of chinese venues and some italian bar (Cantine Isola is a very good wine bar) A good place for a stroll, after sunset people floods in for "aperitivi" o for a fine dinner. A lot of "takeaway" food is served also.

This is the main street of Milano's Chinatown. Its a semi-pedestrian street with many stores to buy trinkets and such. Good dumplings and a pretty walk.

If you have been to China Town in London, New York or Melbourne, don't bother going here as for you will be disappointed. It's even hard to find a proper Chinese restaurant serving good food. But I did; Ristorante Yue Bin is quite okay.

Quite literally a Chinatown within Milan, most of the shops or the people you will meet here is Chinese (or at least has chinese origins, the so-called "second generation"), the place is filled with cheap small shops and restaurants. The whole road is covered with...More

We were told by another traveller tat there were some quaint shops and attractions here. Ok there were Chines lanterns as street lights but little else, except small tacky shops which were expensive for what they sold. Don't waste your time
