Since 1883, Peck's has styled itself, the Temple of Italian Gastronomy ; for the Milanese, this favourite luxury delicatessen is on a par with Fauchon in Paris or London's Harrods. Buy some delicious Prosciutto or parmesan cheese to take away or have shipped home. For more of the same at a luxurious sit-down meal and for a taste of the deli's fabulous desserts, pop into its restaurant near the shop (just along from the Duomo).
While in Milan, we lunched at the cafe on the second floor of Peck. we had the very best lasagna we have ever eaten. It was so light & wasn't swimming in mozzerella (sp?). In fact, we went back for two more lunches. The salads were fresh & crisp, with wonderful garnishes. Now the deserts were in a class of their own. Makes my mouth water just thinking of it. On the main street floor we discovered some wonderful cheeses & chocolates which we took back to our hotel room for a midafternoon/late night snack. This is truly a destination in Milan.
