The Brit in Milan.

An English cook, Italian wait-staff and global patronage. Alistair’s discreet fusion cuisine tends to the Italian, but isn’t afraid to push the envelope, all in designer ambiance and Buddha Bar soundtrack. Recommended: pork stuffed with pears and Castelmagno, filetto al bacon e balsamico. Great Sunday brunch. Reservations recommended. — Aaron Maines

Bar Tempio  

Panini made to order...

This central bar was once so unprepossessing that it didn't have a name — but it turned out some of Milan's best panini. Now renovated and with a name, the same artist is still making the sandwiches. This is a lunch-only establishment, and you might have to wait your turn, as panini are made to order from a list (not in English, so bring your phrase book). They feature cured prosciutto di praga, cipolle, and various cheeses (including easily recognizable Brie). — Madeleine Johnson

Very oval and very large...

Situated on a Brera district sidestreet, the locale itself has some pleasant modern murals. The unique oval pizza served here is very thin, tasty and large. No reservations are accepted and waiting for a table on the street is common. Also, at times the service is slow. — Daniele Vitale

It's about €100 a head and up.

This Milan classic combines the skills with a talented local chef (Carlo Cracco) and the city's top gourmet food store (Peck). Within three years of opening, Cracco-Peck boasted two Michelin stars. Specialties include Milanese classics revisited — Cracco's take on saffron risotto and breaded veal cutlet should not be missed. Be sure to save room for the light, steam-cooked tiramisù.The gourmet menu offers good value and relief for the undecided. Reservations essential. Prices are not for the faint of heart. If you must ask, do not enter. Closed for three weeks in January and July. — Madeleine Johnson

Da Abele  

Risotto heaven...

Don’t be worried by the dark street and burned out car that was in front on the last visit. This is the place to come if you love risotto. This trattoria’s superb risottos change with the season, and there may be just two or three on the menu at any time. It is tempting to try them all. The setting is relaxed, the service informal, the prices strikingly reasonable. Outside the touristy center of town but quite convenient by subway (Pasteur), Da Abele is invariably packed with locals. No lunch. Closed late July to September. — Madeleine Johnson

Da Giacomo  

Tart tatin is a treat.

Popular with the fashion and publishing crowd as well as international bankers and businessmen, fish is featured in this Ligurian/Tuscan classic. The specialty is gnocchi Da Giacomo in a tasty seafood and tomato sauce. The décor, with its tank of fish and tiled floor, is elegant bistro. This is a faithful standard when you want something elegant but not pretentious, friendly but sophisticated. Fresh fish a strong point. The dessert cart includes tarte tatin and Sicilian cassata. Reservations essential, and don’t think of getting them the same day during fashion or furniture weeks. — Madeleine Johnson

Da Ilia  

Tagliata: Good choice.

Don't be fooled by this restaurant's reputation as a favorite haunt for business people and visiting fashion journalists. It's no tourist trap. A talent for Tuscan cuisine (excellent steak, tagliata and tagliatelle con cinghiale) make it a popular eatery with locals as well. Be sure to try the fried potatoes: slim, crisp and just a hint of rosemary. They're worth the trip alone. The roof garden section is romantic, but may be a little chilly in winter. Reservations recommended (ask for the garden). Closed Friday and Saturday lunch. — Aaron Maines

Da Willy  

Milan has six Da Willy outlets.

A Milanese staple that's built a loyal following by coming through on its boast that it serves the biggest pizzas in town. There are now 10 Da Willy venues to choose from, three in the Navigli neighborhood. Thin-crust pizzas with dozens of toppings are big enough to split, maybe sharing a large salad on the side. The Da Willy 2, on the Naviglio Pavese, has outdoor dining along the canal in the hot months. Bring your own mosquito repellent. (The chain also has outlets in Jordan and Cyprus.) — Elisabetta Povoledo

Don Carlos  

After the opera...

This is the place for dining after La Scala. Open late and nearby in the Grand Hotel et de Milan up the street, it gets good reviews year after year. The cuisine is updated Italian classics and the decoration is theatrical with dramatic memorabilia and sketches. A good spot for romance. A gourmet menu costs €75 or six courses (two-person minimum), excluding wine. Closed in August. — Madeleine Johnson

Famiglia Conconi  

Go for penne with brie.

Conveniently located trattoria on the outer edge of the Navigli (making parking only semi-impossible), this traditional Milanese eatery props up classic dishes with experimental flair that is almost always tasty and never over-the-top. (See the penne with brie and blueberry mustard for a start.) For dessert, the chocolate soufflé is stellar. — Aaron Maines

Good as D&G Gold.

This is Dolce & Gabbana’s foray into total lifestyle: D&G the cuisine. On two floors, Gold has a bar, a bistro and a formal restaurant. Gold looks a bit like the set from Scorsese’s Casino: Sharon Stone might walk in any minute. Lunch in the bistro has a neighborhood feel and th owners are often there. Dinner upstairs is more flashy and at night the sidewalk pullulates with sunglasses, open necks, black suits, tie-less white shirts with big collars. The menu is not adventurous but the presentations are artful. You can also take away D&G food products — in shiny gold bags of course. — Madeleine Johnson

Il Cestino  

Gnocchi ai 4 formaggi.

In the heart of Brera, this is one of those corner places that catches your eye as you stroll through the town. Follow your curious palate. Try the mushroom ravioli with crema di tartufo and the gnocchi ai 4 formaggi. Good spot for business lunches. In the evening, it offers a lovely romantic atmosphere, and traditional Milanese dishes, including risottocotoletta alla Milanese, the city’s traditional breaded veal cultlet. — David R. Deropolous

Il Gattò  

Good and simple.

Walk through the travel agency and past the clothes and accessories it also sells and back to the dining room and garden and you could be in Provence. At least the cream colored ceramic plates and wrought iron tables could make you think that. As for the food, it is "updated" Neopolitan and standard Italian without being fussy; orecchiette with ragu, a veal roast with curry, vitello tonné made without mayonnaise and international desserts such as tarte tatin and a chocolate mouse cake (with real, vanilla ice cream, not Italian crema).

The crowd is stylish but not fashionable, youthful but not young and more international than this residential neighborhood would suggest. The menu is too cute by half, but what is on it — and it changes often — is satisfying without being too solid. The open kitchen is lively and the unprofessional waiters endearing. Appetizers from €8 to €11 and secondi between €12 and €22. A good place to choose when you want something a bit special but not fancy and good simple but not a trattoria (either the real or reconstituted variety). — Madeleine Johnson

Vegetarian joy.

Vegetarians get short shrift in Italy except at Joia, where chef Pietro Leemann’s special touch raises vegetarian eating to heights unimaginable to diners used to veggie burgers. Leemann offers dishes in unusual formats: tiny glasses of creamed cabbage with ginger, spheres of crunchy vegetables that roll across the plate. Fish is served. Men do not always go for Joia’s delicate flavors and moderate portions. If you want hearty or more traditional Italian food, go elsewhere. Lunch is good value, but be sure to reserve. Multi-course menus range from €55 to €95, excluding wine. Closed in August. — Madeleine Johnson

Joia Leggero  

Gazpacho scomposto.

In the Porta Ticinese area, Joia Leggero (light) is the lower-priced, more-informal outlet of chef Pietro Leemann, the man behind Joia (see above). On the picturesque piazza in front of St. Eustorgio, there are few tables outside for warm days. Don’t be misled, many of the dishes are far from leggero in the caloric sense — especially the rich and satisfying desserts. You won’t find sprouts and loosely-disguised dietary fiber here. Try the well-priced set meals (vegetarian lunch is €11 or €14 with fish). — Madeleine Johnson

La Baia  

Thin crusts at La Baia.

Among the very best spots serving delicious Milanese (thin crusted) pizza, this hard-to-spot restaurant is run by Sabrina Longhi, dubbed the "Queen of Crisp Pizza" by the Milan daily Corriere della Sera. Offers a superb selection of over 40 pizzas of different shapes and compositions, and a fine choice of salads and other side dishes (including gratinéed vegetables, and prosciutto or cheese fare). Homemade desserts are irresistible. Moderately priced. — Daniele Vitale

La Bruschetta  

Tagliata or pizza?

Evergreen, this family-run pizzeria near the Duomo serves specialties from Tuscany, though other dishes are also available. The tagliata is good if you need a red-meat fix. In summer, order panzanella, a salad with toasted bread. In winter, there's ribollita a dense soup of vegetables, cabbage and bread. Not a spot to linger in: You can get in and out in time for the movies. — Madeleine Johnson

La Madonnina  

Cotoletta alla Milanese.

Limited menu, two rooms not crammed to bursting (and open only three nights a week, daily for lunch) make this trattoria less-is-more favorite among Milanese patrons. In line with its "The Way We Were" decor, the cuisine rides the local battle horses, including risotto alla Milanese (with saffron), ossobuco or cotoletta Milanese (breaded veal cutlet). About €30 a head. — Elisabetta Povoledo

La Milanese  

Old-school Milan.

If you like your veal old-style, with bone, come here. In most of Italy, the costoletta alla Milanese is stripped down to a flat, boneless breaded chicken breast-style dish (mostly called a costoletta. Not here. The bone remains. The bone's taste does as well. Also excellent is the ossobuco (shanks), which is invariably tender. This restaurant gets mixed reviews in some publications, but there's no denying its authenticity. Giuseppe and Antonella Villa run a tight ship — glamour is not their trade — with an loyal, old-Milan clientele. Risotto al Barolo is wine-pungent perfect; risotto alla Milanese (saffron and beef marrow) is also top-of-the-charts. — Angela Della Notte

Tables with a view.

Across from the Giardini Pubblici, this is the place for outdoor dining. It offers innovative Italian food to a business clientele, including the much-vaunted "Mediterranean sushi," made with pearl barley instead of rice and incorporating pesto, blood oranges, or olive tapenade. Sunday brunch and takeout are also available. — Madeleine Johnson
