From Tradition to Innovation

Don Lisander is a historic restaurant opened in 1947, in the heart of Milan, a hundred steps from Teatro alla Scala. It is named after Alessandro Manzoni, affectionately called by the Milanese, Don Lisander. The inner hall is located in what was once the chapel of Palazzo Trivulzio, whose magnificent garden is still visible from the patio of the restaurant open for lunch and dinner throughout the summer season.
