I visited with my family since we stayed 4 days in Milan and it was a “must go” place.The view was breathtaking.The queue was incredibly long.Some things were overpriced but worth the view. I rate it 8/10

I just entered this place, the receptionist was not welcoming, there were empty tables outside she said only inside tables are free and when we asked her to move when there will be an empty table she refused saying it’s not allowed to change tables!!...however there were empty tables from the beginning but it looks she pick’s the visitors up to her mind or management orientation, they treat tourists very aggressive and impolite left us before ending discussion, we were humiliated and we will make an official claim against this place… NOT RECOMMENDED PLACEMore

Quite a queue to get in, but this is understandable. Lovely view once seated on the terrace. Frosty service to start with when we asked to change seat, but this was all rectified when I asked to add some lettuce to my Insalata Caprese and...the lovely manager Stefania agreed and made the rest of the experience lovely!! Would definitely return again.More

You have to queue to gain admission, but most people seem to just have on Aperol Spritz and then leave, so there is no major delay. An Aperol Spritz costs a whopping €18, and despite the selection of finger snacks, is still three times the...price charged in atmospheric pub outside La Scala. As I mentioned, nobody is going to pay €18 for a second drink, so turnover is fairly rapid! The view of the Duomo is adequate, but does not justify the prices charged. Would I ever visit again? ........... Nope. Do it if you have loads of money, and like a little queue.More

Nice view of the Duomo from the Terrace. But rest is a Tourist Trap. From Service to Quality of Cocktails - Highly Disappointing. Cannot even make their Classic Drinks right. And when pointed, manager was rude. Combined with the Outrageous prices, it’s a Tourist Trap...and a Company Gimmick.More

A must visit in Milan. It’s an iconic venue and located in the heart of Duomo square. You will have to queue, whatever time of day you go, so add an extra 15 minutes of queuing time to your schedule. If you want to get...a seat on the balcony edge, you will need to order food. Otherwise for drinks, you can sit anywhere. Variety of different apperol spritz to chose from, including rum and spirit options. We went for the traditional spritz and ordered a club me sandwich and ceaser salad. Be advised prices are high. You’re looking at €18 a cocktail and at least €20 a main. Location is unbeatable with stunning views of the Duomo and square. Staff all friendly and welcoming.More

I don’t usually care for Aperol, I don’t really like the bitter burnt orange flavour but I have friends who adore Aperol Spritz. We were drawn to the Terrazza Aperol because of its bright coloured bar and wall of orange Aperol bottles. As we struggled...to decipher the menu, the very hunky waiter with tattoos named Luca took extra special care of us. Asking us what flavours we liked and recommending a drink each for us. I said that I struggled with the bitter taste, so Luca suggested a Aperol Sour, and made Leslie a special cocktail. These came with olives. My friend decided she wanted a dessert and chose the Tiramisu. While I wanted the steak and potatoes. Helpful and lovely Luca, asked if he could move us to a better table so that we would enjoy our meals there as he brought out some bread for us. This was appreciated. The was the first Tiramisu my friend had tried and she loved it. My steak arrived and was delicious the portion was small, for its price, which left room for desert. I ordered a glass of Prosecco to go with my food which was delicious and then ordered a lemon sorbet blended with tequila which was out of this world. I paid the bill as Luca gave me a big cuddle, and we said we would come back.More

First of all, you overlook the Duomo—the view couldn’t get much better. Worth ordering some food to sit next to the railing, even if a bit pricey. Lots of gin drinks with aperol as well. Comes with interesting bites. Service was friendly and helpful. If...you’re a tourist, got to do once!!More

The views from the terrace are lovely and definitely worth a visit if you are visiting the area. Yes the prices are a little steeper then other places but if you are just ordering drinks the come with a range of snacks. We opted for...lunch to guarantee a table on the terrace with a view and the food was very good.. the seafood ravioli was delicious. Service is okay could be better but does the job. I would say if you are a touristy looking to spend some time eating nice food and taking in the views it’s much nicer sitting up here then on the ground floor restaurants as you are away from the crowds of people staring over at your foodMore

We didn’t have to queue for too long (about 5 minutes) and were seated on the balcony right at the front so had a great view of the Duomo. We had the Duomo cocktail which was great. Expensive at €18 but you do get a...snack board which meant we didn’t go and have dinner. You’re paying for the view really. Would recommend as it’s a nice vibe and there’s a good view - it’s just expensive.More

We went to Aperol Terrazza on a Monday night. We lined up for about 30 minutes to get inside. It was only possible to sit inside we were told. However, there were plenty table available outside on the actual terrace. Once we were inside we...also realized it wasn’t busy at all. The bar itself was no fancy place just a regular bar. Drinks were pretty pricy and varying depending on the menu you received. An Aperol was 18€, a soft drink was either 7€ or 11€ due to two different menus. As we’ve waited between 10-15 minutes to place an order and no one showed up we decided to leave. We had drinks at another bar near the dome where we recognized other people who had entered the Terrazza with us but also decided to leave. We don’t recommend going there. It’s simply one of those tourist traps.More

Great stop off for a late morning/ early afternoon drink. We went around 11:30 on a Sunday and didn’t have to queue, when we left around 1:00 there was at least 10 parties waiting so it is worth getting there early. We had 2 aperols...each (€15.25 per aperol) and some snacks they bring along for the table (€4pp). Would recommend as amazing view!More
