NH Milano Touring – PianoTerra in Italy

What better way to kickstart the evening than with an aperitivo, so before dinner visit the restaurant’s bar and treat yourself with an Aperol Spritz or glass of local wine.

PianoTerra and its bar are an excellent choice if you’re catching up with friends or family or even if you’re with colleagues on business. Of course, it’s not only the food that impresses when in Italy, that’s why you’ll find a stylish interior in which to enjoy your meal.
