    Having never been to Milan, my impression of it was a fashion/trade city, quite cold and industrial. But since reading your posts and seeing your gorgeous pics I am totally in love with this beautiful place and would love to visit it one day.

    Mmm, pepper steak…

    I can completely understand why you and Garance would eat at such an elegant restaurant. I like all of these suggestions of places in Europe because when I visit I will be able to decide where to go.

    I've never been to Milano but I had similar experiences on Roma, Venezia and small towns such as Assissi.

    Great pic by the way!

    Anytime you visit Mexico just let me know so I can give you some tips about this kind of restaurants over here.

    OMG ! please make me love Milan. I have been living in Milan for already 6 months and Im quite dissapointed. The first 2 months were the hardest. Since I have never been to Europe before I was expecting beautiful stuffs but when I arrived in Milan… I almost died of dissapointment. My italian friends told me not to think of Europe as Milan or better said… Not to think the entire Italy is like Milan. I have been told Rome, Florence, Venice, other italians cities are way preetier but I see many many people in love with Milan and I just dont understand… I will try that Bagutta restaurant sometime soon. I hope to start loving Milan soon to make my daily life easier and better. by the way, your blog is awesome !

    If you haven't already been there Paper Moon is one of my fave's in Milano and it happens to be across the street from Bagutta. My friends family have been patrons since the 50's and don't fail to remind me that things haven't changed much since.

    I found the most charming and tasty eateries in Como town, the further you wind into the smaller streets the more intimate they are. The best pizza I've ever eaten was in Cernobbio (10mins away) and you know it's good when only the locals are in there.

    Bagutta in Milan is an evergreen classic of milanese tradition, as well as "Bice Restaurant" and "Il Boeucc".. Infact they are all hidden in the small but enchanting roads just off Via Montenapoleone.

    But now, best place to go is "Le Bistrot di Giacomo"… And i'll leave you to this… Your judgment!

    Bagutta is an all time favorite. I've been a patron since my first visit to Italy as a teenager in 1982.

    Living here we now head out for sushi or Indian whenever in Milano, things that one misses in a basically mono-cuisine nation.

    Milan is a city you learn to love. I've been here one year now. I often recommend Bagutta to clients. By the way, for your next Milan visit, you (all) should stay at Town House 31 or 33, or any of the other 3 Town House hotels in the city. Highly recommend it!

    Your idea about what Milan is, actually is right, but of course it has very Italian details around the city, but it's nothing beautiful compared to Rome or Florence for example.

    In my opinion, and I tried nearly every restaurant in the city, I have to say the foods and services, are too much often under the usual standard of quality you can find in other cities in Italy…
    as a tourist I would better visit Rome first…

  66. Davidikus

    Yes, it is a fashion/trade city, quite cold and industrial and the foods and services, are too much often under the usual standard of quality you can find in other cities in Italy…

    However, some places in Milan are nice & charming.
