Only those who know the way will find this restaurant, hidden deep in the archway facing the Dior boutique on via Montenapoleone. Despite the tourists crowding the surrounding streets, only locals come here. The restaurant has five tables, like many bistros in Italy. In the summer, an indoor is opened on the patio, which is the first thing you’ll see when you walk through the archway. Ivy climbs the walls toward the sun, and the windows are decorated with flowers. This is Milan hidden from prying eyes. The menu is small, simple and traditional. You can’t call the cooking exquisite, but it is still very strong. And as to the patio, and the waiters’ demeanor, Bacaro del Sambuco gets an A+.

We recommend: Pasta with seafood and any of the desserts.

Cuisine: Traditional Italian.

Atmosphere: Inside it's all business, while the patio is for romantics.

The crowd: Professionals of every stripe from nearby offices, brand reps on power lunches.

Key info: It's only open for lunch, the kitchen closes at 4:00 PM. There is Wi-Fi and they'll even bring you the password. But the restaurant doesn't have a website.
