Expert review of Cusani

A hidden Milan gem that concentrates more on flavour than fuss.

My heart sank slightly as I walked into this hotel dining room. It looks drab and I was the only one there. However, within minutes of my arrival it filled up with local business people, my first course arrived, and I realised that, décor aside, I had stumbled on a hidden treasure. It’s slightly off the beaten path, it doesn’t look like much, but the food is great. It is also significantly cheaper than other restaurants of a similar quality. I really enjoyed my lunch. 

Food and drink: 

The cuisine is modern Italian. I started with a simple bresaola with rocket and the smoothest and creamiest goats' cheese I have ever tasted. I then had a wonderfully presented plate of cuttlefish and prawns grilled with olive oil and herbs, topping off the meal with a chocolate and hazelnut parfait. Mmm.

Ambience: 

On the ground floor of the Una Hotel Cusani, this really doesn’t have a huge amount of atmosphere as a dining room – more 1970s hotel. But ignore that and concentrate on the plate in front of you.

Service: 

The service was friendly but not chatty, though my waiter went out of his way to explain the specials and make recommendations.

Location: 

Around the corner from the Castello Sforsezco.

Price advice: 

Expect to pay about 40-50 euros for three courses without wine.
