I sent you an e-mail… I hope you got it!

The hotel fare is very good (the chef is a lady and really talented); If you venture around you’ll find the Bolognese, posh and expensive but good, or you can try – a bit farther, take a taxi – the “22 risotti” restaurant in Piazza Carbonari: they make 22 different kinds of risotto, and they are all great (bring a friend to share, and definitely reserve a table, it’s a small place).
Two typical Milanese restaurants not far from the hotel are also Berti and Cavallini, both with a very nice garden.

If you can spare some time, have a tour in the Navigli area – our small Venice: best place for an aperitivo/happy hour with plenty of food and crazy people!! (i live nearby… :D)
I have posted some gelateria tips in your forst post about your trip.

Enjoy Milan!! and let me know what you think about it!! 🙂

Or, if you’d like a typical “italian fast food”, try Luini, just on the back of La rInascente: they make panzerotti, that’s like little pizza pockets, deep fried (remember, Italian calories don’t count and are REALLY fashionable!! 😉 )
