Best Restaurants in Milan

more than a year ago
If what you are looking for is a mouthful of local delights, you want to head to one of the many trattorie and osterie scattered around the city: most of them will be charming, genuine restaurants with generous portions on offer. For a bite on the go whilst exploring Piazza del Duomo, you can have a panzerotto from the local institution Luini or, if you have the chance of going out of the city centre, a visit to a cascina - farmhouse - will give you the opportunity to taste local produce in a beautifully green setting.


This trattoria specialises in Calabrian cuisine, offering dishes flavoured with the spicy aromas of the south. All the pasta on served up here is made in-house. With an excellent wine list and an interesting selection of grappas, Dongiò is full almost every night of the week. Booking in advance is strongly recommended. Read more....

And love is precisely what you'll find in every plate served at Mamai. Read more....
