Amid to magnificent glory of Galleria Victor Emanuel, with its parade of people from every land, some fashionable some not so, is an attractive restaurant named Savini Caffe and Savini Ristorante. Its menu is appealing even though the prices seem much higher than other restaurants...More

The location is great--and they know it. Waiters seem to trained to be snobs and prices are astronomical: 30€ for two glasses of mediocre wine. The location is the obvious draw. Go elsewhere and save your money.

The location is excellent! Food: Best tomato soup with mozzarella ever! Pasta with lobster is ok :/ Excellent burrata:) Deserts are delicious! Staff is to overconfident but helpful when you need. English can be improved! PS: Ice-creams are very good, real Italian Ice-cream ! :)

It's a touristic location but many locals come here for an espresso, a quick bite or apperitivo which is displayed very nicely at the splendid bar

Ate here after a business meeting in Milan in the 80s. It was and still is the most expensive meal I have ever had in a restaurant. Three of us and approximately £90 a head. Good food though as I remember...

A lovely eatery in the galleria which serves wonderful gelati in 12 or so flavours. It was very smooth and delicious. A little pricy but you get what you pay for.

Wish I had looked at the reviews before we went. Normally I do but we had had a long day and thought it looked nice. Wanted to treat ourselves, knew it would be more on the expensive side. We only waited around 5 minutes for...More

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

Savini is the name of the first owner, Virgilio Savini, who opened this place in 1884. It used to be very famous with visits of well known people from all over the world. Now it is taken over by another family.

Today, like 150 years ago, we try with great enthusiasm to make that who sit down in our tables for a lunch, dinner or coffee, feels into a spiritual history, but also in Italian enogastronomical history that we follow with great care and attention.
