Looking for a good lunch with good wine list in Milan for Friday lunch

I am travelling to Italy next month for VinItaly with colleagues in the restaurant and wine biz and spending a few days in Milano. We have already booked Aimo e Nadia for a dinner and need to find a great place for lunch not too far from the center (happy to get a cab). As I am a restaurant owner the place needs to be "Italian" not too much fusion ala Cracco but not a tourist trap either and it is imperative that the wine list is good.

A couple of places i have read about that sound promising are
- della Pesa
- liberty
- manna
- trussardi alla scala

oh and if you think Aimo e Nadia is not worth the the trip just let me know

thanks in advance

  1. If you want somewhere authentic with no tourists, fine local food and good wine try l'Isoloto on Via Fara tel 02 6705802 - not far from the central station, it's a favorite of the Guardia di Finanza and believe me these boys like to eat and they know their wine. Very reasonable prices.

      I have also eaten well at L'Isolotto (note spelling), but just so you know, it is a Sardegnan kitchen. The address is via Generale Gustavo Fara, 10.
