Carlo Cracco has been the leading light of Milan’s fine-dining scene for the past decade. In 2018, when Cracco decided to move his eponymous restaurant into the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, it seemed like a natural home for the chef’s gastronomy. Cracco is an upmarket restaurant, both relaxed and elegant at the same time. Perfect for a special occasion, it caters for all times of the day. The café and bar are open all day for breakfast or post-theatre drinks, while the dining room has set times of service where you can enjoy dishes such as the red snapper with yuzu jelly and shaved scallops. It’s ideal for those making the pilgrimage to the city’s La Scala theatre for the opera, or those perusing the gallery’s flagship designer stores.
