The Alessi Store: "All Alessi" Milan Shopping Tip by JessieLang

Milan Shopping: 141 reviews and 140 photos


I've loved Alessi designs for years, so I was delighted to find a large Alessi store here,

They make stylish kitchenware and home décor items, ranging from expensive stainless steel teapots and platters to whimsical plastic pieces.

The plastic ones are more in my price range. (Examples: a rabbit in a top hat is a toothpick holder—pull him out by his ears to get the toothpicks; and two little fat guys (salt and pepper shakers) are attached to a pole by their magnetic feet.

Even if you aren't buying, this stuff is fun to look at. I spent quite a while trying to determine what some of the quirky plastic things are used for. I had intended to look, but I got carried away.

Hours: 10-7 Monday-Saturday. (Closed from 2-3 on Mondays)

What to buy: Whatever you love. I couldn't resist some pretty napkin rings and a couple of the fun plastic things.

Address: Via Manzoni, 14/16
Theme: Gifts

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
