As you cross the threshold of the imposing Palazzo Dell'Arte, designed by the architect Giovanni Muzio, and walk along the wide hallway advertising the current exhibitions, you step into the accommodating white space of the Café, with its large windows overlooking the park. Views on De Chirico’s Mysterious Baths sculpture and other works, the open kitchen and long communal tables make the space perfect for browsing bookstore purchases, enjoying a drink or tasting some modern Italian cuisine.
For aperitifs and apres- Teatro dell’Arte: new evening opening hours until 23:00 for focaccia, burgers and Italian-style poke bowls.
The tranquil view never ceases to amaze and is even more evocative from the Triennale Terrace, a sort of transparent greenhouse suspended over the park. The top-floor Osteria boasts a spectacular view of the Milanese skyline that emerges from the verdant expanse of Parco Sempione below.
When you feel a hint of spring is in the air, head outdoors to the Caffè Giardino, to sit around the large convivial table under the wooden veranda.
