Fast catching up with Cracco (www.ristorantecracco.it) as the most feted Michelin-starred restaurant in Milan, Sadler is the brainchild of chef Claudio Sadler. There are five dining rooms designed in soothing tans and golds, with the occasional Baroque flourish of cherubs flashing across the walls. The delicately presented dishes include swordfish ravioli, lamb chops stuffed with black truffle and foie gras, and saffrom couscouswith burrata flakes. Delicious desserts include tiramisu with marscarpone ice cream or pistachio parfait with chantilly cream. Set menus vary in price from expensive to stratospheric but the ambience is pleasantly relaxed for such stellar cooking; Sadler himself is present for much of the time and enjoys discussing his menus with guests. Reservations are mandatory.
