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.

Artisanal Italian Dinner / Lunch with Wine Pairing

I had a wonderful evening with Valentina and Marco. They were gracious hosts who were extremely knowledgable about food and wine, and made a solo traveler feel very welcomed in Milan. The food they prepared was wonderfully delicious! It was also a lot of fun to learn about Milan from the view of a local. Valentina also went out of her way to make a reservation at one of their favorite restaurants the next evening for me. The evening ended a bit too soon, but I look forward to the next trip to Milan! Will be inviting myself back for sure.

Artisanal Italian Dinner / Lunch with Wine Pairing

Valentina and Marco hosted a really Great dinner evening.They served traditional Italian Christmas dishes. Both the food and wine tasted really well. They also shared their knowledge about the food and drinks, which I think was really nice. This was my first time on a social dinner event like this, but it will definitively not be the last, based on this experience. I can definitively recommend Valentina and Marco´s dinner event.
