Don Carlos


In a refined and intimate location in the heart of Milan, a few steps from La Scala Opera House, the Duomo Cathedral and the Fashion district, the Don Carlos Restaurant looks like a secluded corner, surrounded by a sophisticated ambiance. Paintings and sketches from the Museum of La Scala Opera House frame this place, where the atmosphere seems to be suspended between luxury and retro, wrapped in a timeless elegance. The restaurant is dedicated to the Maestro Giuseppe Verdi who spent a long time in the Suite of the Grand Hotel et de Milan, of which the restaurant is part. Here he composed some of his major Operas, one of which gave the name to the restaurant. The Don Carlos, mentioned in prestigious guides and magazines as one of the most exclusive restaurants in Milan, combines a high level gastronomy with an elegant service in a very charming ambiance.

Open every day for dinner, even late night after the shows at La Scala Opera House.


Don Carlos Restaurant is open every evening at dinner  time from 7.30 p.m. to 11 p.m. and, exceptionally, until half an hour after the end of the shows La Scala Opera House.
