After a regular workday, nothing better than go to a quality and good place to eat in Milan. Having this in mind, we want to be your solution for your “Where to eat in Milan”. Take one week and decide to go to these 5 best lunchbreak spots.
Piccolo Peck (Via Spadari 9)
This is new, actually, brand new! Housed within the legendary Peck store, near Via Torino, is their new gastro-cafe. It’s a completely different story from the upstairs restaurant, so don’t be intimidated — it’s perfect for lunch!
The dishes and the atmosphere a lot less formal here, with a lovely presentation in colorful china plates. You can have cold and hot dishes, ranging from their famous cheese and cold cuts selection to wonderful roast and carpaccio. Since it’s open the whole day, it also works well for those who enjoy a late lunch.
Antica Focacceria San Francesco (via San Paolo 5)
Not many of you may know, but TBS Crew’s offices used to be just a few steps from Milan Duomo! It’s the kind of place where you can taste the flavor of Sicily without needing to set foot on the island.
What to eat if you go here? Try pasta with anchovies, pani ca meusa and, bread and panelle (Sicilian fritters) with lemon. The place has plenty of seating space but we still recommend booking a table.
Ottimo Massimo (Via Spadari)
Behind Milan Duomo you will find one that probably will be in your “everytime lunch visit” once you visit Milan. Their service is usually fast, and this is why we suggest it for your lunch break. Choose anything between panini, soups and salad bowls, but whatever you choose, don’t forget to have a cold press juice!
Chic n Go (Via Bigli 20)
Your office is in the Montenapoleone area, or maybe you’re just so exhausted from all the shopping? We have the right place for you, to stop and have an unusual lunch break. How this name sounds for you, Chic n Go?
The name of the place is very telling, it’s chic since their panini are prepared with care and elegance, as are their main courses. One last tip: if you go for take away, expect very pretty packaging!
Jade Café (Via Palazzo Reale 5)
And what about a sushi spot to finish this “Where to eat in Milan”? Here is one located just a few steps away from the Royal Palace. This place doesn’t just feature Japanese food, it also offers Thai and Chinese food.
The service is very fast, so you can be sure you will manage to make it back to the office without upsetting your boss because you’re late. Jade was always a guarantee over the years!
