Every year the Michelin Guide selects a small number of restaurants to which the much-coveted and famous stars are assigned, as a mark of recognition and a seal of quality.

20 restaurants were awarded in Milano for the year 2020: 3 of them received 2 stars, 16 received 1 star and, after 25 years, a restaurant gained 3 stars: Bartolini at MUDEC!

 

The stars are assigned according to 5 criteria:

  1. quality of raw materials
  2. originality and personality of the chef emerging from the dishes on offer
  3. mastery of cooking techniques and mix of flavours
  4. value for money
  5. continuity over time

 

For a tasteful experience you will never forget, here is a list of Milano’s starred restaurants.

Enrico Bartolini al Mudec - 3 STARS

26 years after Gualtiero Marchesi, Enrico Bartolini brings a 3-star restaurant back to Milano. The true mission of Enrico Bartolini is all in his motto "BE Contemporary Classic": the aim is to renew tradition in a contemporary key,  never forgetting the basis on which innovation and culinary research must rest. The result is a modern and sophisticated menu that includes the flavours of good food, and dishes treated in every detail that seem true works of art.

VUN Andrea Aprea - 2 STARS

The name of this restaurant, located in the city centre, means "one" in Milanese dialect. It was chosen not only to express the strong bond with the city and the territory, but also to sum up the philosophy of chef Andrea Aprea, consisting in the desire to overcome the rhetoric of tradition opposing innovation and researching new experiences to define the flavour of the contemporary. The menu, refined and accurate, and even sumptuous at times, is continuously dialoguing between the traditional and the contemporary, brilliantly merging them in one unified taste experience.

    Berton - 1 STAR

    Design is transformed into food, thanks to chef Andrea Berton who puts precision and cleanliness into every dish, taking care to position each item scrupulously and creatively at the same time. The Tutto Brodo (All broth) menu is a real surprise... to be discovered! 

    Inaugurated in December 2013, Berton is a modern, linear and essential restaurant. This shows in the menu’s suggestions, where flavours are always easily recognizable. The dining hall is elegant and rigorous and is separated from the kitchen by a glass wall, making it possible to discreetly follow the moves of the crew led by the chef.

    Contraste - 1 STAR

    Outside of the expected canons, the Contraste attempts to break the mould by giving the customer an unexpected experience, from reception to the moment of tasting. The dishes are not simply innovative but deny innovation itself, experimenting with shapes, geometries and flavours that go beyond the very concept of the unusual. The highlights of the menu best interpret this drive to reinvent food, pointing to a contrast between the idea of the dish and the way it is presented.
