Day One in Milan--jet lagged and hungry and hubs digs the touristy stuff. We knew we couldn't wait for the decent restaurants to open at 7 pm--wanted quick and easy, so stopped her for an early bite. Not surprisingly, pricey and just meh. Hubs ordered the veal with artichoke hearts--came out totally gray. He said it tasted okay but I... More

This restaurant serves the kind of food you make on a monday night when you are lazy and you only have pasta in your cupboard. Not tasty, over expensive (20E for a pasta dish!) service awful. I rarely write bad comments, but this place must be avoided in Milan.

After visting the Duomo my friend and I decided to grab a bite to eat. We selected the Lasagna with meat sauce. It was a nice proportion size and well plated. The taste was quite disappointing especially because it was bland. I did not like it at all. My companion shared my thoughts as well. The service was poor as... More

This is definitely the worst option to eat and drink at Galleria Vittorio Emanuelle. The menu is simple but the price is very expensive. The service is another outstanding defect. Waiters very rude. Not recommend at all.

The Himalayan salt sirloin is top shelf! The salmon penne is beyond perfection! The chicken in truffle butter is just fantastic! The wine pairings were absolutely perfect! It's pricey, but the service and food were both exceptional and completely worth it! Also, the snails were superb!

Our family enjoyed a fantastic classic Italian dishes in this classic and traditional restaurant inside the Vittorio Emanuele II galleria. The primi piattis (starters) where flawless and the secondi piattis (main dishes) are astonishing, just fabolous. Finally the dolce (desserts) where the cream of the crop, just a bonanza of delicious cotornis! Don't miss out!!!

Biffi restaurant founded in 1867 . Good quality and delicious food with excellent service and atmosphere. It is a bit expensive. We gave eur 130 for 2 main meat dishes, 2 glasses of wine, coffee and desert. Worth to try if you are in Milano and looking for a late dinner near Duomo inside the gallery.

Located in the shopping mall, center of Lombardy. You can enjoy food and watch people walk around. A bit expensives but worth money.

In 1867 Paolo Biffi, royal confectioner, opened the first cafè in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. Since then, just under Mengoni's vault, "Biffi in Galleria" has become a classical meeting point for the Milanesi and for the great number of tourists and operators in town. Nowadays Biffi reproposes its various and qualified services, going back to its best tradition, in order to meet all customers' requirements

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.
