Qu Qu - this lively tapas bar and restaurant is just a couple of minutes from Plaça de Catalunya. You can eat at the bar, in the restaurant, or even get a takeaway, but whatever you decide the food is good. Great for a snack or a full-blown meal. Map

Bice - there are about 40 Bice restaurants around the world, including one in London, but the original opened in Milan's historic centre in 1926. Like its stylish cousins, it’s a favourite of the rich and famous, but you don’t have to be loaded to eat here: set lunches start at around €25. A good wine won’t break the bank either. The extensive menu is traditional Tuscan and Milanese, and the food is excellent. Closed Sunday - 0039 0276002572. Map


Casa Tua - for good quality food at reasonable prices head for this busy osteria near Porta Romana in the south-east corner of the city. It specializes in Tuscan cuisine and you get a free plate of delicious antipasti while you peruse the excellent menu. The wines are also Tuscan, and the subtly fizzy house red and white are such good value it's rude not to drink them. Pleasant surroundings and friendly staff. Closed Monday - 0039 025514269. Map


Joia - although Joia is a vegetarian restaurant, even committed carnivores will leave this gourmet and Michelin starred establishment with a satisfied smile and a determination to go veggie more often. The food is beautifully prepared and presented by its Swiss chef and owner, and there are four distinct seasonal menus. There's also an extensive wine list. Set menus start at around €80 and wines from a few sips over €20 - 0039 0229522124. Map

La Tour d’Argent - opened in 1582 to cater for aristocrats tired of slumming it, this eatery became so popular that people fought duels to get a table. Luckily, you no longer have to reach for a weapon to eat in this plush Michelin starred restaurant. The place is famous for its duck and gargantuan wine cellar, and has fabulous panoramic views over Notre Dame. Set lunches from €105. Closed Mon, and Tues lunch – 0033 (0) 143542331. Map

Fiaschetteria Toscana - despite what the name might suggest, there’s nothing Tuscan about the cooking in this mid-price ristorante in Salizada San Giovanni Grisostomo near the Rialto Bridge. The food is typically Venetian and there’s plenty of fish on the menu. Everything is cooked with high-quality ingredients and there’s a huge choice of wines. Leave room for one of their moreish home-made puddings. Closed Tues/Wed lunch - 0039 0415285281. Map
