Historic restaurant opened in 1947 in the heart of Milan, a hundred yards from the Teatro alla Scala. It takes its name from Alessandro Manzoni, affectionately called by the Milanese Don Lisander. The inner hall is set up in what was once the chapel of Palazzo Trivulzio, whose magnificent garden is still visible today from the patio of the restaurant open for lunch and dinner throughout the summer season.

                                    My husband and I ate here for dinner in January, on a visit to Milan from the US. What a delightful experience! Not only was the food delicious, the service was exceptional and the restaurant had a wonderful atmosphere. Lighting and decor are really nice. We received excellent attention and were quite happy with the entire evening. We will definitely go back when we return. I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant!
