Ducati motorcycle & Ferrari display
It was dark when we returned to the Piazza del Duomo and we were ready to look for a place for supper. We started walking through the shopping district east of the Cathedral, which had many stores with fascinating displays. Outside the Ferrari Store there were tents with Ducati motorcycles and Ferrari vehicles on display.
We saw many innovative window displays and stores, but didn't find many restaurants,. We finally turned away from the stores and walked back up a side street where we found the Al Conte Ugolino, a seafood restaurant in the Hotel Nuovo. Since Milan is far from the coast, it may not seem like a place for seafood, but Milan is where most fresh seafood is flown out Italy to the rest of Europe.
Of the restaurants which we found, rather than sought out, Al Conte Ugolino was my favorite during the trip, and I have included the menu below.
Our server spoke fairly little English and another waiter helped take our order. I wish he had been our waiter for the whole meal, so I could have asked questions like which fish were in my Misto di pesce alla brace (mixed grilled fish).
