I found this place thank's to Tripadvisor on street where couldn't imagine that such good restaurant could be located. Some distance from maddening crowds, but full with milanese people. Very good artichoke salad as well as chicory. Pasta was unbelievable tasty. Nice service.

L'Hostaria Borromei, situata nel centro storico di Milano, racchiude al suo interno una storia di tradizione lombarda e amore per le proprie origini. Il locale era, infatti, una delle stalle dei Borromei, importante famiglia della nobilta milanese, tutt'ora presente nel territorio. Ancora oggi il ristorante conserva le strutture principali originali: le arcate interne ed esterne, le travi in legno, le finestre che danno sulla corte e il cortile stesso, sono rimasti gli stessi dal '400 senza essere stati intaccati se non con lavori di manutenzione e ristrutturazione. La cucina e classica italiana con richiami alla tradizione milanese e all'interno troverete una cantina con un'accurata selezione di vini. Il ristorante e a disposizione per l'organizzazione di eventi privati ed e in grado di soddisfare qualsiasi richiesta di menu. Infine se parcheggi la tua auto al Parking Borromeo a 100mt di distanza la prima ora la paghiamo noi
