Milano’s fashion district: where to eat

Il Salumaio in Via Montenapoleone is the place where to stop after a long day of shopping amid the narrow streets of Milano’s fashion district.

If you fancy a selection of Italian coldcuts like salame or prosciutto, if you wish to inebriate your throat with the bubbles of a sparkling prosecco make sure to make a reservation at Il Salumaio.

Its origin dates back to 1957. It was the beginning of autumn and a delicatessen was about to open in the fancy shopping district of the city. The owners of the other stores were furious. How was it possible? A sort of grocery stores right next to the lavish boutiques? Well 70 years after those complaints Il salumaio is still there selling its mouth-watering products made according to the Italian food tradition.

Il Salumaio is hosted at Palazzo Bagatti Valsecchi a 19th century building in via Gesù, right in front of the Four Season and just a few steps from the Versace headquarter and former residence of the late Gianni Versace.

Nowadays what used to be a deli has grown to be an excellent restaurant and a cafè bistrot. Just sit in the courtyard of the palazzo and check the list of delicious treats listed on the menu.

Il Salumaio offers a wide selection of cheeses which includes burrata and buffalo mozzarella, salads with the most fresh vegetables you can find and main courses like trofie with pesto sauce and the Milanese risotto with saffron.

If you wish to be there just for a coffee the cafè bistrot has everything you are expecting to find in a place like this. Cakes and pastries in the elegant atmosphere of the dining room or the signature cocktails prepared by the professional bartenders of Il Salumaio.

Don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy the Italian way of living and abandon yourself to the emotions of an excellent food experience at Il Salumaio.
