This is a pretty slick little operation. Gets busy after 12 catering to the lunch crowd. Paninis were good but the soup seemed to be a hit with the regular lunch group.

Good sandwich and smoothies all to a fair price. Fast and effective too. It's right across from Pecks deli. We would come again for sure.

Was walking in Milan on my hunt for Laudree and came across this restaurant next door. The interior was very cute. I ordered a sandwich that was so simple and so yummy. The bread was so fresh and soft it was perfect. If we had more time we would have liked to come back and try other items on the... More

A wonderful place to stop in for lunch while sightseeing. Order at the register and then give your ticket to the counterman who will prepare your food and bring it to your table. An extensive selection of sandwiches is available as well as all the accompaniments. We'd love to visit again next time we're in Milan. Very reasonable prices, too!

I've been here many times. Just went there again yesterday. We were a group of 4 people wanting to have a cup of coffee after lunch. It was around 2 PM. The cashier lady was fast in taking order and payment so it was good and impressive because it was actually crowded inside. We had a cappuccino, a marocchino, a... More

It was past 7.30pm and they told me the kitchen was closed so I just had some freezed cous cous and a juice. This one was actually very very good, but all in all I was a bit disappointed by the whole experience.

Dear customer, at OTTIMOMASSIMO the kitchen closes at 3.30 PM because we don’t serve dinner (we close at 7.30 PM), but after 3.30 you can have salads, tramezzini, focaccia, cakes, fruit salads, yogurt, fresh smoothies and many other products. The cous cous you had was in the “Take Away fridge”, where customers can find small snacks at any time during... More

We had seriously overdone it on the pasta, pizza and gelato and craved a salad. We have passed Ottimomassimo many times but it always looks packed and difficult to get a seat so we walk on by. This time, however, two guys were sitting outside tucking into lovely fresh salads so we pushed our way in between the tables, over... More

Mini croissant is quite cute. Cafe not so awesome in comparison with the dessert. I've been here only for the breakfast, willing to come another time for brunch.

We found space to sit even though everywhere seemed to be full on a sunday afternoon. The coffee was really cheap and still tasted really good.

Nice and welcoming setting, reasonably easy to get a seat at 8 AM, with good and low price coffee - all the more valuable since it's literally round the corner from the Duomo square. I consistently heard from friends they also have very good snacks and light lunches. The cake slice I had was fair, a simple typical central Italy... More

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.
