I see some mixed reviews about this restaurant. My opinion is that this is a really great fine dining Italian restaurant. Keep in mind that I don't believe that Italian food is suitable for "fine dining" the same way other cuisines are (like French, for example). Italian food is about fresh ingredients, simple cooking. It's not about complex cooking techniques... More

A lovely shop assistant recommended Bice and even told us what we should try for a local experience! I did exactly that (saffron risotto to start, veal Milanese for main) and wasn't disappointed. It was full of locals, and very Italian with not a tourist in sight! The menu is in Italian but for a real restaurant this is worth... More

After reading the reviews and having high expectations, we were really disappointed during our visit. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere however the first shock was when they couldn't provide us with an English menu. I understand that they are proud Italian but it is rather hard to dine when you don't get the menu. Moreover the waiter wasn't prepared... More

Not only Tiramisu but also typical Italian pasta and seconde piatti. Reservation probably required. Buon apetit

We were recommended this restaurant by a Milanese business colleague and it didn't disappoint We tend to eat early by Italian standards and were one of the first customers for the evening at 7:30pm The staff were attentive and helpful. The menu is in Italian without translation so we tended to struggle a bit - but the waiter was helpful... More

During our short stay in Milan we visited this restaurant twice having been impressed by its food and service during the first dinner on Friday evening. Absolutely necessary to book in advance. Food is impeccable, my Risotto Milanese absolutely gorgeous and my wife's salad with shrimps and avocados, lime and apple was fresh and delicious. The Black Cod my wife... More

This small restaurant was recommended to us by our cab driver. Excellent choice. The food excellent. Waitstaff top notch. Very clean and priced reasonable. Highly recommend. It's in a small alley in the heart of the shopping area of Milan. Easy walk by. Worth looking for

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.
