Biffi is located in a great spot near the Duomo, so in that sense is "touristy", however it was fun to sit outside on a pleasant Milan evening and watch the world go by. We found the food to be very authentic and were hosted...More

We went here by chance as we walked by after shopping in the Galeria. The waiters are super friendly and as they were celebrating their 150° aniversario we were invited for some drinks. The Biffi is a great spot to look around galleria and watch...More

Another great venue to people watch shoppers. You can either eat in the restaurant or just have drinks and snacks, which is what we did on a rainy day.

As other reviews mention this place is really expensive for the quantity/quality you get. The cover charge is 6.50 pp. That said, we enjoyed the food, everything tasted very good. Service was ok.

Just out of ear shot from the crowds, yet still in the middle of people watching. What a great place to dine. There was no rush, the 'free' pre dinner food was excellent. I did not want to have dinner. Went there twice, it was...More

A good place for people watching in the galleria shopping district; or just to have a coffer/soda after a long day sightseeing. Food itself was ok, service was inconsistent, while the price was higher but considering the location. There are several places in galleria and...More

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

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
