On the top floor of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, overlooking the symbol par excellence of the city of Milan, the Duomo, which from the terrace shows off with its striking majesty, is situated the Felix Lo Basso Restaurant.
“I chose this place as a home for my kitchen that houses 50 indoor seats”
The chef Felice Lo Basso, from Molfetta, was born in 1973, and obtained the Michelin star in 2011, after an excellent experience in many gourmet restaurants in Italy and abroad.
With a refined style, between creativity and research, he makes quality and respect for raw materials the starting point of his cuisine. His technique was born at the sea, but grew up in the mountains: the link is the search for quality products, the desire to experiment with shapes and colours, mixing tastes.
In his restaurant, Felix Lo Basso offers a high-level cuisine, sophisticated in the preparation of the recipes, but with a strong respect to tradition and to Italian raw materials. Intuition, imagination, innovation and creativity are the pillars of his food and wine proposal.
Here is an idea to spend an evening in the upcoming Christmas holidays in Milan enjoying an excellent cuisine and a Milanese atmosphere in the city centre.
