4 - Milan. No recommendations. NEED HELP! Day trips to Como will be made as well.
Not sure what sort of restaurants you’re seeking in Milan, but I would recommend each of the places where my wife and I had dinner while on vacation last month. I haven’t had the time to write a report yet, but check out Ristorante L’Assassino, Manna Ristorante, and Ristorante Damm-atrà. I would describe the food at L’Assassino and Manna as refined Milanese cuisine. Damm-atrà also serves Milanese cuisine, but it’s much more humble and traditional.
Are you going to Lake Como, or the city of Como?
