The location could not be more central or prestigious: on a corner overlooking La Scala, just across the square from the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, and within easy reach of both the banking hub and the fashion district. The street-level Café Trussardi, with its elegant contemporary design, has become a favorite lunch and aperitivo stop for those with business in the area (and if you're doing business in Milan, this is the area). If there's a deal to clinch, though, do it in the upstairs restaurant, with its red leather armchairs (perhaps a little too low-slung for comfort) and ringside view of the piazza. It's worth specifying a window seat when you book, as the low ceiling, the aisle layout of the tables, and the soberly minimalist decor—all russets and browns—make the inner tables feel decidedly second-best. The service here is as good as we have seen in Milan, striking a perfect balance between friendly and efficient. And if the restaurant's name suggests another style-over-substance fashion franchise, think again: Andrea Berton's creative Italian cuisine has met with plaudits all over. Dishes might include an antipasto of artichokes, scorzonera (black salsify), mozzarella, and beet juice, or raw and cooked prawns with amaranth grain and red beet gelato. The desserts are cheekily creative—especially the martini-glass variation on tiramisu. And the wine list is both extensive and surprisingly well valued. Excellent pre- or post-opera, but always book ahead.

Open Mondays through Fridays 12:30 to 3:30 pm and 8 to 11 pm, Saturdays 8 to 11 pm.
