This is the prettiest ‘ladies who lunch’ restaurant in Milan, tucked away in a courtyard just off the main street.
The food is amazing, the flowers are inspired, and the décor is beyond chic.
So too are the patrons – make sure you’re carrying your best handbag.

You (hopefully) won’t see any fashion types in this low key eatery, a favourite with local restaurant workers who are in the know about what may be the best pizza in Milan.
The restaurants here are jostling for position with more hipster style cafes and eateries, and the fashion and furniture boutiques are worth a browse.
The original jewellery store established by Donatella Pellini is a delight to visit, with an abundance of colourful, original creations.
A Pellini beaded necklace is always a gorgeous investment.
