I used to love this restaurant until he owner decided to install a big flat screen tv and have it blaring soccer matches nonstop. The food was always great...the ambiance not.

I had very high hopes for my dining experience here when i sat down. These were confirmed with the first sip of the wonderful wine that was recommended to me. My first plate of foie gras was divine!! Beautiful slices of the Foie were served on top of a pistachio sauce. But, i must say my entree was a bit... More

Every time I come to Milan. One of my friends here reminded me that I have been coming here for over 20 years, no wonder I know all the back streets to navigate when the local Polizia blocks off all the streets around La Scala as they did this evening. No doubt Berlusconi or some other has been politico was... More

Wonderful restaurant in the heart of Brera. Fantastic food, great service, and ambiance, which can be great to go with family and friends, or even for a romantic dinner. One of the best restaurants in Milan.

Only regret: we had no more time to go beyond the first course and a glass of house wine, the restaurant is small in a cozy way, the owner was very helpful, and the pictures on the wall showed some local celebrities enjoying the place as well. Will go back when I have a chance

Walked into this restaurant at around 2.30pm. With only one other table filled in the restaurant I got the feeling from the outset that I was on the clock. They wanted me to eat and basically get out. They only brought me a piece of baguette and charged me €5 for it at the end. Ordered the lobster with spaghetti.... More

Il Pontaccio is a quality restaurant in Brera district of Milan. Whenever I am in town I like to go there for an excellent dinner and a the chance to watch a game of football on the discreet screen. The menu is quite big and I haven't had the chance to sample all the dishes but those I have had... More

Staying in Brera

Neighbourhood Profile
Brera
Brera captures the real essence of the city. It is an excellent mix between history and modernity, where tradition meets innovation. Here design and beauty reign. On Via Brera there are the famous Pinacoteca (galleries), the National Gallery of Modern and Antique Art, and the Academy of Fine Arts. Interior design boutiques and intellectual cafes are typical of the district. Walking along Via Madonnina is a must to admire the architecture of buildings and the design stores. On Sundays, going to the local market is an unmissable opportunity for fashion, style and art. Tucked away, there is the Orto Botanico di Brera botanical garden that seems like a painting framed in an ancient fairy structure. Last but not least, it’s worth a visit to Giardini Pubblici Indro Montanelli with its Planetarium, the Civico Museo di Storia Naturale (Natural History Museum).
