Concierge.com's insider take:
Sunday brunch has caught on in a big way in Milan over the last few years. Among the city center hotels, Bulgari, the Park Hyatt, and the Four Seasons all offer sumptuous buffets—at a price. Another hot brunch spot, though only during the summer, is Old Fashion, a historic nightclub with restaurant attached in leafy Parco Sempione, right by the Triennale museum. But for our money, the best and most convivial brunch spot in Milan is the Cantina della Vetra, a large, split-level bistro just off Corso di Porta Ticinese, with warm new-rustic decor and a fabulous buffet that takes in a huge range of salads, quiches, cold fish and meat dishes, and desserts, as well as a daily list of hot specials. In Old Fashion and Cantina della Vetra, expect to pay around €30 ($38) a head without wine. In Milan, brunch is generally served between noon and 3 pm, and should be booked ahead.
