Ceresio 7 Pools & Restaurant opened its doors at the height of Milan Fashion Week, which was no coincidence because it's owned by the design duo Dsquared2. The building has since become a hub for the city's beau monde, who flock to Dsquared2's rooftop headquarters. The view is unparalleled, a grand vista of rooftops and the city's only highrises. In the summer, you can tan by the two pools, sipping cocktails while admiring the sunset or dining on the open veranda.

When the weather cools, the restaurant's unique interior design — unusual pictures on the walls, colorful chairs, and 1930s-era lamps — provides more than enough visual delight. Head chef Elio Sironi, formerly of the Bulgari Hotel in Milan and a restaurant called Madai in Porto Cervo, reinterprets traditional local cuisine with unusual combinations and ingredients.

We recommend: ravioli with black truffles, linguini with lobster.

Cuisine: Italian/Fusion.

Atmosphere: cosmopolitan.

The crowd: beau monde, fashion journalists, "it" girls, designers, businessmen, prominent Milan families.

Key info: The restaurant is open all day, but there are separate lunch and dinner menus. There's also an "all day" menu. Vegetarian options available.
