Il Salumaio di Montenapoleone

What do luxury shopping, a historical museum and gourmet cuisine have in common? In three words: Salumaio di Montenapoleone.
Just off the super trendy Via Montenapoleone is the Palazzo Bagatti Valsecchi, one of the finest museum homes in Europe. Fascinating rooms with nineteenth century interiors, outstanding collections of Renaissance art and furniture and… a chic restaurant that amazes locals and tourists with its delicatessen, its beautiful lemon tree garden and its stunning mosaic floor.

Since 1957 il Salumaio di Montenapoleone has made history, moving from one corner of the fashion district to another, finally winning a place of honor among high fashion brands and important names. What used to be a historic gastronomic shop and delicatessen has now become a restaurant where well-dressed diners enjoy classic Italian dishes as well as lighter plates featuring its famous salamis and prosciuttos. Lunch is served here at any hour, which is a great advantage as the nearby exclusive shops easily can spellbind you to miss out on the strict Italian eating-hours.

Il Salumaio is popular with the fashion world and is a great place not only for good food but also for people spotting:  American Canadian singer songwriter Rufus Wainright, American Vogue’s Grace Coddington and football stars like Kakà and Andrea Pirlo love this place!

Then here’s our tip: sit outside and enjoy a Milanese risotto after a day of shopping on Via Montenapoleone in this impeccable and charming restaurant.
