In a courtyard of old Milan, a former monastery of the sixteenth century, a project is hidden among the tropical vegetation. It’s a collective born from the genius of the entrepreneur Mauro Orlandelli. The Six Project brand includes, among other things, a bistro that has recently passed into the hands of the owners of Officina 12 and GinO12. Here the atmosphere is exotic, and the classic menu supports the #foodology introduced by the new management. Some dishes are deprived of fundamental ingredients, to instead be complimented by the cocktails.

The Al Cortile restaurant is a hidden treasure designed by Food Genius Academy on the occasion of EXPO 2015. Due to its success, it has since been transformed into a permanent activity.

Gourmet dishes are prepared by the best students of the Academy who, after completing their studies, become part of the brigade. They swear by a “learning by doing” method.

A unique Mexican restaurant that charms at first glance, seduces at the first course and irreparably capitulates at first drink. The atmosphere is energetic and hard to resist. The lights, exposed bricks and chandeliers are enthralling. However, the center of attention is the beautiful courtyard furnished with delicious tables and lots of plants. Here, the chef prepares traditional Mexican dishes (gourmet tacos, fajitas, ceviche and typical desserts). When you finish dinner, don’t leave so fast! Make a pitstop at the Tequila Bar!

This is one of the numerous microcosms of Milanese taste that make up that small gastronomic empire of Giacomo Bulleri. Giacomo Rosticceria opened in 2017 in a beautiful villa with a garden and pergola. It is adjacent to the workers’ village of via Lincoln, but has already kidnapped everyone’s heart. The menu is varied, with different dishes from the Milanese and Tuscan traditions.

Bar Martini

Bar Martini (together with the Martini Bistrot) was born from the synergy between Martini and Dolce & Gabbana, who wanted to combine their common attention to Made in Italy tradition and modernity to create a corner of glamorous peace in the area of ​​the historic center that offers customers a complete sensory experience. The air you breathe is chic and international and the lunches, appetizers, and dinners have the flavors and colors of the Mediterranean gastronomy. Imaginative touches are added by the chef which will take you beyond the borders.


Via Palestro, 16

This spot is set within the monumental beauty of Villa Reale, which frames the works of the GAM and houses a suggestive park. LùBar is located precisely in the south wing of the structure. What was once a portico of transit for carriages and lemon trees is now recovered as a winter garden. In the restaurant, you can taste Sicilian specialties, revisited following the new cosmopolitan trends and preferences. It is not surprising, therefore, if arancini and cannoli are also in mignon form.


Via Pier Candido Decembrio, 33

“U Barba” in Ligurian dialect means “uncle.” This tavern brings a corner of Liguria to Milan. The courtyard with olive trees and the bowling green evokes the past of the building which once housed a bowling club. Today the Genoese tavern with its vintage, rustic and welcoming environment offers authentic dishes of regional tradition. We reccommend the typical Recco focaccia with cheese, trofie and testaroli (strictly homemade) with pesto and pansoti with nuts.

Bombarded daily by information of all kinds, transmitted by an ever-increasing number of communication tools, we sometimes look for a simplification, a reliable source, a guide. Flawless Milano was born from this need, and tells the best experiences to have in Milan with style, precision and personality.
