Restaurants and Bars in Milan

I was only in Milan for a day and half but here are some of the restaurants and bars we visited. I have heard that the ATMosfera Tram Restaurant is amazing as you can take in the sights of Milan whilst eating your dinner. Sadly it was booked up but you can check availability here.

Bar Straf 

Situated right near the Duomo is Hotel Straf with a bar inside and outside offering happy hour appertivo and drinks. For just 10Euros you can get an Aperol Spritz (or many other cocktails) and help yourself to lots of great nibbles from 5-9pm! BARGAIN. There is a relaxed atmosphere, great cocktails and good selection of apertivo!


Obica is part of a larger chain of restaurants in Italy, USA, Japan and London. I chose to dine here for the view of the Duomo on the rooftop. I certainly was not disappointed by the surroundings!

Unfortunately, I did not particularly rate the food or the service. We started off with some mozzarella bites (it is a mozzarella bar after all!) followed by the recommended special burger and the vegetarian pasta. Sadly, it was just all a little bland – not bad, just bland. I would definitely recommend to visit Obica for drinks but skip the food.


I love Japanese so was rather sad when I stumbled upon Wasabi when I had eaten dinner! They offered a la carte menus and Japanese apertivo menus!

We stayed for a couple of drinks and had the BEST frozen strawberry daiquiri ! The staff were lovely and it was nice chilled atmosphere.

Bioesseri was such a cute cafe in the Brera neighbourhood with a beautiful interior and seating outside.

We stopped off for breakfast and the staff were so friendly when we tried speaking Italian and helped us choose a breakfast treat! We had gorgeous pastries, some tea and fresh orange juice for around 10Euros. Loved it.
