WHERE CAN YOU HAVE A FAST AND INEXPENSIVE LUNCH IN MILAN? 

     If while walking around Milan at lunch time you feel like having a bite – you will face a wide choice: bars, restaurants, cafes, pizzerias, McDonalds lastly. What should you set your choice on? I am not going to tell you about McDonalds – it is, as they speak, the same across the globe, but let’s talk about Italian fast-food chains in more detail.

First, I wouldn’t suggest going to restaurants – expensive and taking too much time to be more profitably spent on something else, you’d better leave restaurants for evening.

Bars and cafes: are exactly the places where most Milanese have lunch. As usual the menus have a few first courses (pasta, risotto, gnocchi) or perfect panini – these are layer sandwiches, quite a typical fast lunch in Italy. Panini are usually put in the window, so you can choose to your taste. The price of the lunch like this is €5 to 12. Suggesting the specific bar or café is a difficult task – Milan harbors a great deal of them, I can only recommend dropping in at the bar you like from 12.30 to 14.30 (lunch time for office workers) and if you see a lot of men in business suits (please see Milanese business dress code post), then you can have a delicious and inexpensive lunch in the place. Milanese are not fools, aren’t they?wink

If you are in the central city close-by the Duomo Cathedral  - visit "Luini" at the address: via Santa Radegonta  16 (please see the map) – the kingdom of patties called in Italy panzerotti.  The small café is located fast by Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and LaRinascente shopping mall. This is practically a sightseeing attraction of Milan: like – you visited Milan and didn’t drop in at Luini, did you? You will always see a queue here, but it won’t take long, so I suggest trying it. The price of classical panzerotto with mozzarella and tomato is €2.50.

There are also big national restaurant chains in Milan where you can have a fast, delicious and inexpensive lunch:

Rosso Pomodoro – Neapolitan pizza and pasta. If while walking around Milan you will see the restaurant with the sign like this – don’t hesitate to visit it, delicious and inexpensive! The average lunch price is € 10-15.

Spizzico – for pizza fans, I wouldn’t say the best pizza ever, but you will enjoy the wide choice at reasonable prices.

The average pizza slice + beverage are € 5-8.

Panino Giusto  - the title can be translated into English as “right sandwich”, so it already speaks for itself. There are six cafes of the restaurant chain in Milan. Apart from sandwiches you can also try other hot and cold plates. The average price is € 10-12.
