Restaurants in Milan

The Milanese love pastas, risottos and meat dishes, although one of the best restaurants is Michelin-starred vegetarian Joia. Establishments around Piazza del Duomo, like Cracco, attract a fashionable crowd, while Navigli boasts delicious Pizzeria La Tradizionale. Everywhere, old-fashioned gran caffès like Zucca offer snacks and liqueurs, and pasticcerie serve sweet treats. It is customary to round up bills to the nearest euro. Many restaurants close Mondays.
