In addition to a great meal, the wait staff makes the experience exceptional. Dominic (excuse the spelling) was amazing. He took great care and pride in his suggestions. The Osso Bucco, Veal, Baby Squids, Pumpkin Ravioli and Sea Bass Stew were all excellent. We went...More

We didn't have a reservation, but they still managed to get us a table. The interior is charming, the food is good and the prices are average considering you are within walking distance of Duomo. However the waiters weren't on the top of their game,...More

Found it on Tripadvisor close to our hotel. Very cosy atmosphere both outside and inside, and many Italians - often a good sign. We had the Milanese speciality Ossobuco (veal shank). The meat was very tender. Also good service.

Good food for a fair price. The waitor always says they only have one table left if you have no reservation. Happened 5 times while we were listening. I would still eat there again. The food made up for his lying.

Although this restaurant is on a nondescript street, the restaurant itself is very nice and the food was very good. We had pasta and fish and all four dinners were well prepared and tasty.

L'Hostaria Borromei, situata nel centro storico di Milano, racchiude al suo interno una storia di tradizione lombarda e amore per le proprie origini. Il locale era, infatti, una delle stalle dei Borromei, importante famiglia della nobilta milanese, tutt'ora presente nel territorio. Ancora oggi il ristorante conserva le strutture principali originali: le arcate interne ed esterne, le travi in legno, le finestre che danno sulla corte e il cortile stesso, sono rimasti gli stessi dal '400 senza essere stati intaccati se non con lavori di manutenzione e ristrutturazione. La cucina e classica italiana con richiami alla tradizione milanese e all'interno troverete una cantina con un'accurata selezione di vini. Il ristorante e a disposizione per l'organizzazione di eventi privati ed e in grado di soddisfare qualsiasi richiesta di menu. Infine se parcheggi la tua auto al Parking Borromeo a 100mt di distanza la prima ora la paghiamo noi
