while studying in Milan, this place was our go-to restaurant for Italian food. Best Penne Arrabiatta and Tiramisu one can find. At a certain time, we've been greeted with a glass of Bubbly, and that's just the cherry on the top!

We went in the Cavern and ordered the typical Milanese beef and a wonderful risotto. Very good dessert similar to a Tiramisu. The service at Ibra is sensational, super attentive and suggests great options. I recommend this restaurant to everyone.

Expensive and not worth the price. We were a large group of people and had many dishes. The sea food pasta wasn’t fresh and the other dishes served cold (served suspiciously fast). Didn’t have the greatest experience to say the least and felt like we...More

Brera captures the real essence of the city. It is an
excellent mix between history and modernity, where
tradition meets innovation. Here design and beauty
reign. On Via Brera there are the famous Pinacoteca
(galleries), the National Gallery of Modern and
Antique Art, and the Academy of Fine Arts. Interior
design boutiques and intellectual cafes are typical of
the district. Walking along Via Madonnina is a must to
