I was very disappointed with Caffe Aperol's attitude toward me following an incident on their terrace. A cactus hanging over the table ripped my brand new silk top which was irreparably damaged. After a very unpleasant conversation with the manager I was finally given a contact email address to write a letter of complaint. After a year of email exchanges,... More

Went there after dinner for a cup of tea and some sweets and got really shocked when I got the bill! The place itself is fine, nothing amazing. Service is pretty quick as well. Make sure you do check the menu before ordering. We paid 6 EUR for 1 tea and 5 EUR for a small sweet. Cakes are around... More

We were attracted by the ambience and the male service staff seated us on the upper floor within a minute. He recommended some dishes and we went along with some. Quite disappointed with the taste for some though. Next, we were still feeling hungry as the mains did not fill our hungry stomachs. They offered an array of desserts but... More

At first,the place seems lovely to take a seat and enjoy the Italian food.But when you go inside and order pasta or pizza,you will realize that they have nothing to do with Italian food.The pasta sauces were awful,pizza was made earlier and distasteful.I have eaten lots of Italian food in different cities and places but i can definitely say that...

Went here for dinner because the ambiance and decor was enticing. Sadly misleading! Our waitor spoke at most two words. The food is less than average. Do not order the risotto Milanese, it tastes like it comes from a box. Penne with salmon was ok. When we asked for the bill, the waiter told us we had to go inside... More

This cafe is terribly overpriced. As an "Aperol Cafe" you would expect that the Spritz be on par, if not cheaper than the other bars in the area. Taking advantage of tourists.

Went here for a late lunch and got served by a waitor who spoke at most two words. The food was average, I got a pasta dish and the chicken tasted like something bought in a packet at a supermarket. It was pinkish and square?? When we asked for the bill we waited ten minutes so asked for it again.... More

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.
