Some reviews (recensioni). Classic Italian pizzerias are generally good, here are other kind of places.

There will never be Starbucks in Italy, the only country in the world, lol (very traditional).
Italian espresso coffee is the best in the world and there are so many bars managed by families... with Starbucks they would fail.
The founder of Starbuck got the idea to create it when he was in Milano @ piazza Duomo, looking at the bars. Somewhere down the line, everything is Italian ;)
There is Arnold Coffee, similar to Starbucks. 

California Bakery *
One is beside Sant'Eustorgio church. They have all the American dishes and it's ok, but they make you wait a lot of time, and at the end you even have to pay the service of (ugly) waitresses. The food was even cold. Not very cheap. We went to American restaurants with better quality food. Models going there.

Old Wild West ****
There are some around (also Piazza Sempione, Colonne di San Lorenzo and near the Hines skyscraper), Mexican-American, it's much better. They also have Argentinian meat (expensive, of course). American (Miller), Belgian (Saint Benoît) and Czech (Pilsner Urquell) beers. The scenery and atmosphere are very nice (but sometimes there could be too many children, it's a place for their parties too). Kind waitresses. Football games on tv.

Santa Monica ***
Another Mexican-American good one (also has long pizzas), it's behind Duomo cathedral. Looks like an American bar. Different beers (blonde, red, weiss) and cocktails. Some cute waitress sometimes. You can watch the football games. Karaoke too. They also do the Italian "happy hour" aperitivo of pubs (free food with just a drink), but the quality depends on what they have at the moment. Many Filipinos going there.

Woodstock ****
Biggest choice of beers you could ever find (a long fridge of bottles too). Quality food. On the Naviglio Grande channel. Some cute waitress sometimes. Football games too.

Panino Giusto ***
There are several around the city. A bit expensive but quality food, Italian sandwiches, Italian beer (a Moretti of a better quality). There are some long tables so you can sit close to strangers and maybe have a chat.

YouPizza ***
Near piazza Duomo, they have thick pizza, like the historic Spontini pizza. I was not a fan of the thick one, but I must say it's good, this pizza is soft. They also have different kinds of "focaccia" and dishes. Italian beer (Menabrea). Some cute waitress sometimes.

Spontini ***
historic place, there are some around Milan, thick-type of pizza (high as the American one). The tables were very close to each other, but it was ok because there were two girls :). Maybe YouPizza is of better quality and you can choose the ingredients, here it's a standard type (or also a few ones now), but it's cheaper and you should try it.

Luini ***
A classic in Milan, eating "panzerotti" (small calzone-like) along the street (near Odeon cinema, Duomo). They had also received an "Ambrogino d'oro" prize for being a Milan "must". Always crowded, it's like a baker.

TroppaPizza (Too much pizza) **
There are 2 restaurants (near Naviglio Grande and Certosa). It's an "all you can eat" formula, you can have how many pizzas you want (80 different ones, but you'll never reach them - we ended with an 8 vs 6) and choose between 12 €uros (all the pizzas + small drink, which is stupid), or 17 €uros (with big drink), or 20 something (22) with coffee and dessert when you'll be already full of pizza. Everytime the waiters pass, you can say no to some kind of pizza and wait for the next one. The pizzas are not round whole ones but slices. The quality is ok but not great. I think they put something in the ingredients, to make you feel satisfied. A friend of mine didn't feel good at the end, maybe because the pizzas are very different and they can cause some trouble. The main waiter is very kind, the other waiters are "non-EU" ones, lol - that's how they can save money from all the pizza they give. Place for birthdays too. Go just ONE time, to have a laugh.

Mama Burger **1/2
There is one near Duomo. It looks like a McDonald's but red, and the quality of the burger is better, they also ask you how you want it, if "well done" or not. Of course it costs a bit more, 7 €uros for a basic one. Unfortunately the beer is "basic".

RossoPomodoro *
(RedTomato). A pizzeria (a "chain" of pizzerias), it seems that it's owned by ex-footballer Cannavaro, but the cooks were Chinese or don't know where from, and the pizza was very oily. You should avoid it.

Ciu's ****
A pub, that shouldn't be in this category, but I name it for its classic Milanese "happy hour", at this one you can eat literally everything for free if you buy a drink as always, and the quality of the food is very high.

Charleston **
one of those "serious pizzerias", this one beside the Ferrari store. We used to go years ago and it was good. Recently, they seemed in a hurry, with a lot of people around, and pizza was no so great, we were not satisfied.

the Football English pub ***
We're going there since 1996 when it opened. About food, the number of choices (several hamburgers, pizzas, salads, Italian panini "sandwiches", etc.) and quality got better, you can also choose between 3 different weights for the burger, and a lot of stuff inside.

kebab in via Ausonio (non ricordo il nome) ***
Ottimo kebab. Il ragazzo alla cucina sembra un po' rimbambito, ma un altro, sempre straniero, lo aiuta. Anche da asporto, numero impressionante di pizze.

Antiche cibarie sulla strada *
In via Torino vicino al McDonald's, è rimasto chiuso per mesi. Panini sempliciotti (il sito dice "senza eguali"), prezzi che sembrano buoni all'esterno e poi non lo sono, birra pessima tipo festa dell'Unità (il sito dice buonissima birra artigianale??), sala interna che poi è uno scantinato dove mancano solo i topi. E' degli stessi proprietari di un negozio di vestiti tamarri, infatti adesso cibo e vestiti sono mescolati insieme. Non ci torneremo più.

I will add more places, there are several "burger places", not only McDonald's, Burger King (and Autogrill-Spizzico the fast-pizza) but other ones (also American Donuts, etc.)

"L'Italia è la casa spirituale degli Oasis.
I ragazzi italiani sono come me, molto passionali.
4 elementi li contraddistinguono: il calcio, la musica, la famiglia e l'amore per l'eleganza. I miei amici italiani sono dei fighi, indossano vestiti e scarpe stupende, sciarpe favolose, occhiali da sole anche di notte e donne bellissime al loro fianco. Beh, sono considerato una figura santa in Italia. E' Milano... l'Italia è grande amico, cazzo se mi piace andarci".
(Noel Gallagher, Oasis)

Italy is Oasis spiritual home.
Italian boys are like me, very passionate.
4 elements mark them: football, music, family and love for elegance. My Italian friends are cool, they wear wonderful clothes and shoes, fabulous scarves, sunglasses even at night and beautiful women by their side. Well, I'm considered quite a holy figure in Italy, It's Milan... Italy's great man, I
fucking love going there.

[=Milan is a beautiful city. Many people would pay for staying here. I almost never go shopping, what I like in Milan is the people.]
"We get chatting to Marco who was around for Paolo Nutini arriving and had given him a quick hand shake then sloped off, (you know how cool guys like to play it), he is really a Brit Indie lad at heart trapped inside the body of an Italian guy, his taste in music is fabulous.
The tempo was troppo caldo (too hot weather), the Duomo is breathtaking to say the least. Milano women are ridiculously stylish and fabulously slim, gorgeous beings. The chef shaped my pizza into a love heart. Italian men are so smooth!

I'm pleased to announce that I created the "Milano" Facebook network, the only original one on Facebook (it took years to have it), and to use it you have to ask me (by mail here: marco@miamilan.com) a nice Google e-mail address, as "yourname@miamilan.com" ...I'm not Italian, I'm more: I'm from Milan. :D ...The funny part is that to make Facebook accept it, I put it as a "work network" but now it's also a place network. Milan people are known for being always busy in doing something, so this place-work network is appropriate :)
