The most elegant milieu and the most attentive waiters and simply divine food. I had risotto and after the dessert a Sabayon. I am longing to go back to that beautiful place close to la Scala.

Right next to the Scala, this restaurant has a special pre opera menu, exquisitely judged in size and just perfect for the occasion. We had a beautifully presented baccala with baked polenta (me), sounds heavy but was light and he had a warm scallop salad,...More

The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square
