Milan restaurants

Fancy food has never really taken off in Milan. Even Giorgio Armani eats at Da Giacomo, the favorite home-cooking haunt of the city's movers and shakers. Geared toward Milan's fog-bound winters rather than its sticky summers, this city's solid cooking is based on filling dishes like osso buco (braised veal shanks) and risotto alla milanese (chicken-broth risotto made fragrant with saffron). House wine might be a reliable white Franciacorta or a red Oltrepo Pavese, though more challenging vintages from Piedmont, Tuscany, or Alto Adige are also widely available. Dining times tend to be a shade earlier than in Rome or Florence, with lunch generally served between 12:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. and dinner from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Dinner, and sometimes lunch, are usually preceded by that great Milanese institution, the aperitivo—a glass of sparkling wine or a Campari soda downed in a city-center bar or in more luxurious hotel surroundings (the Park Hyatt, the Bulgari, and the Diana Majestic are all popular stops on the city's after-work circuit).
