Chatulle
Those that make the trek down Corso Sempione to Chatulle are rewarded with a whole evening of fun. Start with aperitivo at the classy and hugely popular Roïalto dine at Chatulle and move onto chic sister club Gattopardo to dance the night away..
Ex Mauri
This venue perfectly encapsulates the alternative laid-back vibe of Isola. Mediterranean-influenced food is served to a crowd of regulars at Ex-Mauri. =display:"

Da Giacomo

Petit Palais
The family-run Petit Palais is something of a rarity - a lovely hotel in Navigli where they are in desperately short supply...
Cigair
To step into Cigair is to walk into another world. A shrine to the Havana cigar this former car workshop is a relaxed haven from the hubbub of Navigli. Kick back with a Mojito and enjoy the live music and simple food...
