I'll be traveling to Milan late next month and I'm looking for some recommendations. In general my wife and I prefer places that are more casual and that cater to locals.

Any bakeries specializing in Italian breads and pastries?

Two lunches. I'm looking for something Italian with entrees under 20 euros (even cheaper would be great!). One within twenty minutes walk of the Central Train Station and one within twenty minutes walk of the Last Supper.

Two dinners. We are willing to travel for great food and would prefer recommendations away from the main tourist district. Looking for entrees under 30 euros, preferably specializing in Northern Italian cuisine. Osso buco with risotto milanese is a must for at least one of the meals. The two places I've read most about are Da Abele and Trattoria Milanese. Also a friend recommended a placed called Ratana near Palazzo Lombardia.

Also should we make reservations for lunch and dinner?

Lastly, any great dessert shops or gelaterias? Or are we better off grabbing dessert at the restaurant?

Thanks in advance.
