Good restaurants in Milan

by Gorbatzjov

Hi,

I'm going to Milan with my girlfriend for her b-day. Could you advise on any romantic but very local restaurants that are easy to get to by public transport? Local is the key word here :-)

Thanks for the advice!

Kind regards,
Philippe

Ciao Philippe,

A Milanese friend says there are good restaurant choices in the Zona Brera, above the Duomo area, served by more than one metro stop. The Azzurra Grill (via S. Gregorio 11, at via Tadino, a block west of Corso Buenos Aires) is good, specializing in seafood, but offers pizza, etc., as well. It's not large and could be quite 'romantic.' It's also near at least one metro stop. Haven't been to it in a number of years, but I'll bet it's still there. Good luck!

I found Ristorante Brasserie Mediterranea by accident on my first visit to Milan. I have now eaten there on three ocassions and each time food and service has been excellent and the bill not too expensive.

Fairly near Milano Centrale

Travel Tips for Milan

Milan Tip

by Maputosimon

I was bored last weekend August 2001, so drove from London to Milan via France, & Switzerland, then back via Luxembourg in 3 days! It's great to see nothing's changed. Bar Magenta on Corso Magenta is still thriving - the restaurants along the canal near Porto Ticinese which serve G & T as 80 % Gin, 20 % Tonic are just as good, as is the all-night street market, on which you can buy incense, jewellery, t-shirts, and central heating boilers (I kid you not - I have photos!) while listening to live Italian ragtime bands in the restaurants.

Info for the mad drivers among you, I sat at around 115 mph for most of the distance, and according to the car's computer, averaged 75 mph for the trip, including driving breaks in cities.

Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (San Siro)

by vichatherly

Home to both AC Milan and Internationale.

A truely impressive stadium. I've been in both away ends now, and it both times the stewards inside don't bother with helping you out to your correct entrance and therefore spreading everyone out. You have to take your chances and get in where you can.

Try and take the tram 16 or the metro to Lotto and then the free bus to the ground. Taxis seem to get stuck in the heavy traffic and can end up costing over £25-30 euros for the trip.

Guided stadium tours The Museum is in San Siro Stadium, entrance Gate n° 21
Timetables: everyday from 10a.m, to 5 p.m.
Guided tours: every hour (timetables can vary on matchdays)

Museum only Tour & Museum
Adults € 7,00 € 12,50
Under 18 € 5,00 € 10,00
Over 65 € 5,00 € 10,00
Under 6 FREE FREE

We went on the tour on the day after the match agaist AC Milan, which was a good opportunity to get a few free souvenirs before the cleaners had finished tidying up. It's probably best to bring either a coat with a hood, or at least a good hat as the locals seem to like to throw plastic bottles down from the top tier.

These are bottles which used to contain water but now have another liquid in them!!

Also take a good map and a sturdy pair of boots, as you will probably have to walk yourself back into town as all the trams and taxis seemed to have dissapearred after you have been kept in for a good hour after the final whistle. Expect to get out of the stadium at around 11.30 pm.

Get yourself noticed on the road

by vichatherly about Ferrari Shop

We wandered through this shop and nearly had to put the sunglasses on as some of the clothes were so bright!

We generally looked around but found most things too expensive to even think about buying.

Nordest Cafe

by AgentJX about Nordest Cafe

Jazz on Friday and Sat. nights. The atmostphere is more laid back than many of the bars and clubs around Milan. They have decent food but drinks are expensive. Even on nights without live music, there is musical feel. Milan casual, there really isn't a dress code, but people in Milan tend to be slightly dressy.

Bicycle lanes

by Nemorino

It's not true that Milan has no bicycle lanes.

It is true that there aren't very many of them, but if you ride around town long enough you will find some. They're mostly very short and/or narrow and/or very bumpy, but they do exist.

The one in the first photo is right across the street from the Ciclobby office -- perhaps the city administration was trying to placate the Ciclobby activists (just a guess).

Without much trouble I was able to get the entire length of this bicycle lane in one photo. It starts where I am standing and ends in the shadow at the top of the hill.

Second photo: This bicycle lane on the street called M. Cioia goes on for several blocks, making it one of the longest I found in Milan. And it's conveniently located on the way back from the Teatro degli Arcimboldi to the city center. The disadvantages are that it's very narrow (adequate for the present but not for the increased bicycle traffic that is sure to come in the near future) and that the parked cars on left prevent drivers from seeing cyclists at intersections, so cyclists are in danger of being hit by right-turning cars at every corner.

Third photo: In the newer districts on the outskirts of the city, the bicycle infrastructure is better than in the city center. This two-way bicycle lane is in the Bicocca district, which is the site of a major new university.
