Expensive lunch (100+ Euro) but it was our last day in Milan and we wanted to make it something to remember. Excellent service, good atmosphere and delicious food. The Tiramisu dessert was to die for! And what about the location? At least we can say...More

First there's the cover charge for the "cover" and bread - a whopping $10 per seat. Oh well it is Milan... Then the question at payment time is "would you like to add your tip to the credit card or pay cash". Our food was...More

Walking around not knowing what we wanted to eat, we fell upon Biffi and decided to go in. Not only was the food delicious but the waitstaff was fun and very helpful. The recommend wine was paired perfectly with our meals!

Expensive tourist trap. Beware of what you order. Staff only speaks English when it comes to the bill. They bring you whatever they want when you order. My son ordered cereal and they brought him peanuts. One of the strangest things I've ever seen.

Strolled past the restaurant on our first evening in Milan and decided to go in as it looked inviting inside the awesome galleriea. The service was excellent but not intrusive. Truly delicious smoked cheese and champagne risotto and excellent pasta with salmon.

Incredible how the staff can ruin an experience. I asked a specific table and was refused because it should be occupied by 4 persons which is totally acceptable. 5 minutes later a couple asked for the same table and they were given the table. I...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

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
