Home restaurants in Milan

When it comes to good food and gastronomy, Milan ranks high. Eating out in Milan is how the locals roll. Tourists in Milan tend to stick to the more populated touristy areas of Milan, which tend to be overpriced with sub-standard fare. It you’re looking to sample some of the world’s best food and traditional Italian food, look where the locals are going. Small bistros, micro breweries, and restaurants off the beaten path are preferred by the Milanese.

During the peak season of travel in Milan, such as Milan fashion week (which takes place twice a year), restaurants and eateries are packed, so if you can, plan ahead, do some research and book in advance. There’s seriously no shortage of places to eat in Milan whether it’s a local fast food restaurant or a fine dining experience. Take a culinary journey through Milan and eat like the locals. They’ll head to places where it’s more affordable, but where the quality remains supreme, because after all they are some of the most cultured people in the world.

Just like in the rest of Italy, the Milanese people enjoy a long meal with a couple of bottles of good Italian wine on the go. Lots of talking and laughter can be typically heard from a table of Milanese, and they do know how to have a good time. The cuisine in Milan varies, but it’s worth trying their signature risotto – risotto alla Milanese.

Petra Laura Serena

Da Vinci's Sforza Castle: Skip the Line

We had a perfect time in Sforza Castle with Laura Serena. She knew everything about the people and the history, was very entertaining and we learned a lot about Milans history. Our daughters also enjoyed ot. The only problem in the castle, which isnt Lauras fault: The Da Vinci Fresco is under restoration and can't be watches. Otherwise a great day.

Caroline Francesco

Milan Tour with a Local

Great tour. Lots of quirky interesting facts and great variety of knowledge. Would recommend this tour if you want a good tour of the main focal points of Milan. Loved the interweaving of folklore legends and facts in his narrative and each member of our party of four learned something new.

Sean Salvatore

Milan's Ancient District Tour

I needed a friendly local to show me around Milan's historical center and Salvatore more than fit the bill. He has a great knowledge of Milan's culture, history and local cuisines and I tested him plenty with my questions. Really friendly and patient and a good English.

Thanks Salvatore : ).
