In Milan there’s thousands of opportunities for eating out and choosing a place could be difficult. If you’re wondering where locals eat, here you find a list of some places.
This is a list of places that we like. Of course taste is personal, and not everyone likes the same things and places. Take this list as a bunch of a friend’s suggestions.
Always check if the prices are in line with your expectations and check the closing days and hours on internet. Specially during the weekend, we suggest to make a reservation in order to be sure to find a table.
As for the tip, in Italy is not needed but appreciated. In restaurants you already pay a little supplement through the servizio (service charge) on your restaurant bill and/or the coperto (cover charge).
Smart tip: the Milanese go out for lunch between 1p.m. and 2 p.m., that means that restaurants are usually busier and it may happen that you have to wait before you can sit. If you can, try to go earlier or later!
