Dining at this restaurant was definitely an experience! Atmosphere: Great atmosphere at the restaurant. The only thing I would have preferred is some soft background music. For me the noise from other diners in the dining room was distracting. Staff: The staff are extremely attentive. They ensured we were ok throughout the evening. They were knowledgeable about the food and... More

We had the tasting menu with wine pairing. Some plates were just wonderful, some others were disappointing. On top, they forgot to serve one of the wines... All in all, a bit disappointing for a 2* restaurant.

One gets the sense that Cracco is a terrific cook who is trying to hard. The various amuses bouches are terrific (the caramelized russian salad will probably evoke divided opinions, but it's fun to try), but some of the pairing just seem off. A lovely partridge salad would, for instance, have been much better off without vanilla sauce; the spaghetti... More

The experience was amazing. Very glad to have met Cracco in person as well - he was very friendly. Perfect place to go for a special occasion (I went with my boyfriend for our anniversary celebration). Would love to go back!

Let me start off by saying that people who have complained about dishes tasting "terrible" and "weird" didn't understand what they were signing up for. Please do not go to Cracco expecting Italian home cooking, nor misunderstand a restaurant that has Michelin stars with one that's going to push out dishes that are going to cater to every palate. You... More

I've been recommended this restaurant by very close friends! Very good if you are looking for an elegant dinner exploring flavours of Italy. Price is aligned with quality of food and wine

the tasting menu of 15 dishes was completely bad, too sweet meal for my taste, service not but, not worth the cost. The dessert was very ordinary and suitable for coffee not for dinner, poor plates decoration

Maybe it is because I am from Spain and I am "spoiled" in this sense, but I am not used to eat such a bad food in a Michelin starred restaurant. For me such star is an enormous mistake. The starters are ridiculous and they taste bad. The sweet "insalata russa" is awful and the rest of dishes do not... More

It was the most disappointing experience in Milan. Actuality in whole Italy. I cannot believe this restaurant was so difficult to book. The ambience was so plain and dry. The waiters were not so well trained. They tried to take my dish even before I had a few bites. Most strangely the waiter tasted our wine before he served... Am... 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.
