“Savini in Milan is like Galleria and Scala”
Carlo Castellaneta, writer
In 2008, Savini was taken over by the Gatto family which redefined the spaces, separating the café bistro from the restaurant on the first floor.
Even today, those who sit in the Savini Restaurant can breathe the charm and elegance of the past, feeling part of the timeless history of a place that today welcomes guests from all over the world.
