Il Salumaio di Montenapoleone

Il Salumaio di Montenapoleone is what our dreams are made of. From their beautiful outside decor to match their amazing little gardens to the food and hospitality they provide, it's no wonder everyone is trying to get their foot in the door and get a seat at a table here. The menu is incredibly delicious. Our top choice? Insalata di mure, please!

Giacomo Arengario

What can we say besides: views, views, views! Giacomo Arengario is encased in a class fixture so you can overlook all the museums around you (we're talking about you Il Novecento Museo!), while enjoying a delicious plate of carpaccio di tono alla Giacomo.

Yoshinobu

So say you have been eating ONLY Italian food, and want to change it up. Yoshinobu is an amazing Japanese restaurant that has some of the freshest produce that we've ever tried. This welcoming Japanese restaurant provides an authentic experience while still maintaining a warm atmosphere.

Rubacuori

Need the perfect dinner date in Milano? We got you covered! Ristorante Rubacuori has such elegant design inside and out that it's impossible to not stare and want to talk a picture. Selfie, anyone? Their menu is sure to please anyone with dishes varying from caprese to passaggiata in campagna. Yum!

Bastianello

Our mouth is watering just thinking about it! This iconic restaurant in San Bablia Square has an incredible ambiance, and is a great place to sit down and get a great meal that has risotto you'll be dreaming about! 10/10; Would recommend!

Innocenti Evasioni

A romantic restaurant near Viale Certosa, Innocenti Evasioni is the perfect pace for dinner for two. Waitresses are very knowledgable of the menu -- especially the wine menu, and the restaurant is decorated beautifully with a traditional Italian atmosphere. The restaurant could be pricey, but the food, drinks and environment is very worth it!

Trattoria del Carmine

Romantic setting in Milan? Yes, please! This candlelit restaurant is beautifully designed with rustic interiors of deep, chocolate wood to spark the mood with your date, while enjoying an amazing glass of montepulciano d'abruzzo to compliment the creamy penne alla carrettiera in front of you -- a MUST have!

Don Carlos

What's better than listening to beautiful Italian music, while eating homemade lasagna with melted onion cream, confit tomatoes, and juicy lobster that you'll be dreaming about weeks after? Feeling classy while doing exactly this. With the beautiful decor surrounding your every view and locals chitchatting in their romance language, you'll be extending your flight in no time.

Piz

Traditional pizza in Rome? Check. Open late? Check. Locals love it? Check. "Piz" in Via Torino hits the mark on all the things we love after dancing the night away at the end of the evening (or early morning!). Whether you have a sweet tooth and want to try their Nutella Pizza or are more of a savory and want to try their Mortadella Pie, you really can't go wrong!

IYO

Located near Sempione and Arco della Pace, this is the best Japanese in Milano. Forget all you know about Nobu because this restaurant will blow you out of the water. The environment is nice and gets filled with locals and tourists. Make a reservation in advance, because this unique culinary experience is hard to book!

Le Rosse

This is the definition of the perfect mixture of a restaurant and a wine bar. Located in Corso Garibaldi, Le Rosse has made it to "Best In Europe" list, and is getting more and more popular. With flawless wine paired with their delicious and smokey prosciutto, even Gossip Girl would be speechless!
