Biffi restaurant founded in 1867 . Good quality and delicious food with excellent service and atmosphere. It is a bit expensive. We gave eur 130 for 2 main meat dishes, 2 glasses of wine, coffee and desert. Worth to try if you are in Milano and looking for a late dinner near Duomo inside the gallery.

Located in the shopping mall, center of Lombardy. You can enjoy food and watch people walk around. A bit expensives but worth money.

Sitting at the wintergarden you see the huge crowd moving on the diect way from the DOME to the SCALA, while you sit at a quiet place for dinner. We love it.

Very good service. The spaghetti Vongole is excellent. The restaurant closes late, midnight I think. But the Coperto charge is very high. Euro 6.50 per person. Great place to go for 2 persons but maybe expensive for families The Coperto charge itself is almost the cost of a meal.

Thank oghe_kelate

In 1867 Paolo Biffi, royal confectioner, opened the first cafè in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. Since then, just under Mengoni's vault, "Biffi in Galleria" has become a classical meeting point for the Milanesi and for the great number of tourists and operators in town. Nowadays Biffi reproposes its various and qualified services, going back to its best tradition, in order to meet all customers' requirements

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.
