Considering the position (downtown Milan) and the fact that the place is very old and historical, much focus on food quality could be an opportunity for them. The quality was very low level and near to a touristic restaurant. Salame and prosciutto for appetizers lower...More

We chose this restaurant because it was tiny and it looked cozy. They had 1 table left and we ordered their special: risotto safran with ossobucco. The risotto was good, the ossobucco was less tender than I expected. It was not bad but I expected...More

When asked to recommend a solid, unpretentious place in the heart of the city, a Milanese friend-of-a-friend recommended Osteria dei Poeti. It was spot-on! Unique menu, amazingly affordable wine list and friendly, no-fuss service! They even have their own cheese cave!

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

(galleries), the National Gallery of Modern and

design boutiques and intellectual cafes are typical of
the district. Walking along Via Madonnina is a must to
