I visited this restaurant for a business lunch not sure of what to expect, given that its extraordinary position could well be abused by just another chain...instead, I found an elegant place, a very attentive service, some extraordinary food! All at a reasonable price (considering all). A pleasent place for a business or a romantic lunch!

We booked a late dinner, walked up already gently buzzed and were friendly told that we'd have to wait 'a while' for our table. Settled at the bar and continued on our path to aperitif-perdition, amused by the very diverse patrons coming and going under our noses. Finally we were accompanied to our tiny table and squeezed into our places... More

Cool contemporary atmosphere on the upper level of the Galleria. Stop in for excellent drinks and appetizers. Careful, new appetizer plates were brought out with each new drink (despite our asking for only drinks). You also may have to wait 10+ min for a table.

My wife and I had a romantic weekend in Milan and wandered into the restaurant in the museum on a whim and were treated to some of the best food we've ever eaten. The terrace would be fab on a warm sunny day but the conservatory style room overlooking the piazza offered a great view of the tourists being rained... More

Terrible food. The risotto was cold and so tasteless that it's even hard to describe what went wrong with that. They brought an angus carpacio with roccolla and parmesan. It had a terrible smell until I discovered that it was flavored with sesame oil. Who in Italy use sesame oil for meat carpaccio??!! After half an hour I understood the... More

This restaurant and bar is in a privileged location on the third floor of the Museo del Novecento. The inside is cozy and warm, with a full bar. The balcony is the place to be, especially on a nice spring or fall day. It provides a magnificent view of the Duomo and the Piazza del Duomo. Great for a cup... More

This place is terrible! Has a nice view but that's about it. The food is terrible, the service is terrible and I felt so strongly about it that I left my first review. Don't waste your time or money.

We attended the Versace dinner after the women's runway show. The restaurant has a stunning view and the quality is still up to the levels of our last visit 5 years ago (we should visit more often). Great fun and good company.

Very well situated in the center of Milan, right in front of the Duomo. Fantastic view from the terrasse and the restaurant : you can eat with the Duomo in front of your eyes ... the menus are typical on Milan : pasta and rice, Milanese veal ... the food is not great, even though not bad ! But the... More

Views are outstanding. The service was typical for Italy. The servings lacked appeal in every way-presentation-taste and then it was overpriced.

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro Storico
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 view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
