The restaurant’s name echoes the eponymous 1930s building that houses it, characterized by its stunning deco architecture and standing beside the imposing Duomo Cathedral. It is no coincidence that it houses Museo del Novecento, as it was built at that time and reflects the 20th century style. It also houses one of the most evocative restaurants in the city.
As soon as you step in the restaurant, you sense a very special atmosphere. When you enter the cozy lobby with small tables, armchairs and sofas here and there and a bar area in black lacquered wood with mirrors, reminiscent of the metaphysical architecture of the exterior, you are a few paces away from the elegant and sober dining room, covered in golden wood and embellished with antique mirrors and a coffered ceiling.
The open gallery on the kitchen, with red lacquered interiors dating back to the 1930s and a counter where you can dine is a must-see. Laura Sartori Rimini and Roberto Peregalli’s project ends in an iron and glass dehors, shaped as a huge loggia, and the adjacent terrace that create a stunning visual effect in viewing Piazza Duomo.
Throughout the day, this beautiful terrace becomes a coveted area for relaxing after visiting the Museum or finishing business, to enjoy lunch or dinner, a coffee or tea break or a cocktail. It’s also the perfect place for an after theatre pause. You can enjoy uninterruptedly, from noon to midnight, the classic dishes of Giacomo’s seafood cuisine, a delight for foodies such as raw fish, spaghetti with crab, beef tacos with mayonnaise and truffles and crunchy vegetables, or else dishes of the most solid Milanese tradition, such as cotoletta or risotto Milanese style.
Our Sommelier will be delighted to recommend the right wine to match your food among 500 labels. You can also go for a lighter lunch, such as a Caesar salad or a fresh shredded buffalo mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, toasted bread and basil. You will feel part of the best of Milan, lingering in one of the most graceful views of the city. The perfect frame for a private event.
