Although this restaurant is on a nondescript street, the restaurant itself is very nice and the food was very good. We had pasta and fish and all four dinners were well prepared and tasty.

A superb Sicilian restaurant tucked away in the historic centre of Milan. Fantastic fish, Turbot, in our case cooked Silcilian style with tomatoes, capers and potatoes. Friendly attentive staff with good English were happy to help with selection.

This restaurant has a pretty, old world decor which makes it quite charming. The food was delicious and the bread and pasta were both made in-house. The service was equally good. We enjoyed the "short pasta" with salmon and eggplant. It was perfectly cooked! The...More

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
