Pasticceria Marchesi:

Milan - Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

Pasticceria Marchesi opens a third shop in the heart of Milan in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, an emblematic symbol of the city.

The new venue, located on the mezzanine floor, reinterprets the atmosphere and allure of its historic shop on via Santa Maria alla Porta, Milan. Its striking ambiance with several arched windows overlooks the splendid frescoes and mosaic pavements of the Galleria.

The refined interiors are consistent with the image and tradition of the pastry shop and reflect the original style and spirit of the historic shop on via Santa Maria alla Porta, recreating in the new space of the Galleria an elegant atmosphere that has been characteristic of Marchesi for over 150 years.

Part of the space in the new store houses an elegant tea room which serves a variety of dishes throughout the day: breakfast, lunch, tea, and an evening aperitif.

Marchesi, established in 1824,
is one of Milan’s oldest and finest
pastry shops in town.


The roots of Pasticceria Marchesi

Pasticceria Marchesi, one of Milan’s most iconic cafes, was founded almost 200 years ago in the same location in which it continues to operate today, the tale of this landmark venue is one of the tradition triumphing over trend. It is a story of classicism guided by the beguiling hand of creativity.


The roots of Pasticceria Marchesi begin in 1824 when a small pastry shop opened inside an elegant 18th century building in a discreet, upscale neighborhood in Milan. The shop quietly and diligently went about its singular business of confections until the early 1900s when Angelo Marchesi expanded its services to that of a proper bar serving coffee, refreshments and early evening cocktails in addition to its freshly baked pastries, cakes, cookies and candies.


Today, the same café in Via Santa Maria alla Porta, 11/a is managed by Angelo Marchesi’s grandson (also named Angelo) together with his wife and two children. The family runs the business according to the café’s original principles, retaining its unique heritage while pushing it forward toward contemporary relevance. Under their stewardship, Marchesi has blossomed into a commercial and creative success, and it continues to be an esteemed destination for Milan’s tastemakers who come to swirl espresso at the antique bar or pick up special sweets for an important event or gift.
