We've eaten here several time over the years and returned full of expectation. This time we were slightly disappointed. The restaurant is the same inside and out and our waiter was funny, attentive and super-professional. But the food was hit and miss. We started with mixed Salumi which was plentiful but uninspiring. One of our mains was a huge Veal... More

This place was recommended by our hotel and it was the best dinner in my Milan trip. It' s crowded, so make reservations. Ambiance is cozy and service was attentive. I highly recommend Il Solferino!

I have a very good friend, who's almost local by now, and she recommended this restaurant to me because it's close to where we live and we wanted a nice restaurant to have a Sunday family lunch. It was great. I'm not sure how old it is, but it's been there for a while, the owner was present wearing a... More

We returned to the Solferino for our anniversary dinner on June 29th. We used to go there many years ago, in the 80's, and it was good then. The place still looks great, the service was impeccable and we had the best risotto Milanese ever ! I could go to the Solferino anytime and be very happy. Overall, a great... More

My family lives in Florence so we tend to eat mainly in that area when we visit. We stayed for a quick overnight in Milan for an early flight. Our concierge at the Me Milan Hotel recommended this beautiful, intimate restaurant nearby. We couldn't have been happier, from start to finish. The food was classic Milanese, white truffles were in... More

We returned a second time. Very festive with its Christmas lights, yet warm and intimate on a cold evening. Great waiter, wish we knew his name..

Both londoners, well travelled, young professional couple. Visited Il Solferino while staying at the Melia Milan Il Duca Hotel. Concierge recommended Il Solferino for good quality Italian food.

Neighbourhood Profile
Stazione Centrale
Central Station represents a bridge towards the future. Impressive skyscrapers and new age buildings stretch the skyline with the majestic Unicredit Tower cutting through. Surrounding it are large towers that define Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the fountain and the Monumento Trombe leave one breathless. A famous building of the district is the Vertical Forest, where the innovative materials and trees planted on the terraces are a unique mix of nature and man-made construction. In the district, there is the Monumental Cemetery, known for its antique tombs with sculptures portraying angels of commemorative scenes many will find touching.
