.:. Da Marcone
Though opened in 2013, and modernly furnished, this restaurant treasures a piece of history of the city's gourmandise. Annina - frequent in the kitchen here - is the same chef as at the good old Teatro Officina and Cucine Economiche.
.:. Translated for the non-Milanese, this means plain but absolutely reliable dishes (Tuscan soups, meat, carpaccio), with professional courtesy and a good quality-price ratio. Wi-Fi available.

.:. Dal Bolognese
You may know its sister restaurant in Rome, packed with politicians and tourists alike. Here the glitzy crowd is Milan-style: industrialists, fashion and media folk, football players. The food is strictly Bolognese. Homemade pastas (lasagna bolognese a must), meats and great desserts. Al fresco in the good season.
.:. Not to be confused with the other Bolognese reviewed here.

.:. Gattò
A most unusual place: you enter through a former-travel agency-cum-shop (selling an eclectic range of objects: you can write to be kept informed).
.:. The chef is a young lady - a slip of a girl - who graduated in industrial design. Mediterranean, homey cuisine with a Neapolitan touch. Good selection of wines. Though recently more pricey, it's still value for money. Free Wi-Fi.

On top of laRinascente department store, at the seventh floor. Moderately elegant, with the best view in town over the gargoyles and the statues of the Duomo, and al fresco dining in the good season.

.:. Rigolo
Since 1958, a reliable restaurant with a Tuscan touch. Veg galore, fish and meat. If that isn't enough, the gluttons amongst you can savour a slice of castagnaccio, a plain chestnut flour cake.
