Food in Milan

Food in Milan

Packed with art, culture, fashion and design, Milan is also a traveler’s dream when it comes to food and restaurants as the rich flavors of Milanese cuisine are renowned the world over. Here are a few ways to enjoy eating and dining out in Milan.

Must-Try Dishes

Every region of Italy has a distinct culinary style, and Milanese cuisine is best known for the rich ingredients that make up its Italian-style comfort food dishes. Meat replaces poultry and fish, and the cuisine is heavy on dairy, with butter, cream, milk, and cheese as the staples of Milanese meals. You can’t leave the city without ordering a plate of risotto alla Milanese, a creamy risotto infused with saffron that doesn’t skimp on the butter. Meat lovers will savor la cotoletta, a pan-fried veal cutlet often covered in eggs, flour, and a sprinkling of breadcrumbs. Veal ossobucco is another meat staple, as is the pork dish cassoeula, served with cabbage and bursting with flavor. To bring a Milanese meal to a close, order panettone, a fluffy cake infused with raisins or other candied fruits.

Must-Do Experiences

  • Join a guided walking tour as you eat your way across Milan’s hippest neighborhoods.

  • Stroll the stalls of a Milanese market for produce you’ll use in a cooking class with a private local chef.

  • Combine a food-themed walking tour with a visit to one of Milan’s top sites, like a cruise on Navigli canal.

  • Explore the flavors of surrounding regions with day trips outside of Milan.
