Where We Ate: Milan

Pizza Big
This place is in the same neighborhood as the apartment where we stayed and was recommended by our landlord. The pizzas here are great, with super thin crusts and a good variety of toppings.
Our server was friendly and gave my daughter lollipops.

Ristorante Il Canarino
This place also is in the same neighborhood as our apartment, but (perhaps notably) was not mentioned by our landlord. It has the dubious distinction of the worst pane/coperto charge of the trip: 2 euro per person for a couple of rolls and some pre packaged breadsticks. I also felt as if the waiter seemed put out that we only ordered 3 primi. Still, I mention it because my husband believes that the spaghetti carbonara here was the best of the trip. The spaghetti bolognese was good, too.

We learned about Brek from our Frommer's guidebook. It is cafeteria-style, so if you're looking for a full-service experience, this is not a good place for you. For us, it worked well because we could see the choices before ordering. Prices were reasonable, even for the wine they had (in small or large bottles). There was a kiddie menu available, but it wasn't displayed, so we missed it. Be sure to ask about it if you're interested. Instead, my daughter got a pizza. It was made to order, and she enjoyed watching the employee prepare it. There is a location in Verona as well, though we didn't have the chance to check it out.

Gelateria Odeon
We went to the location on the Piazza del Duomo. It's a good place to grab some gelato to take to the square. Our favorite was the pistachio.
