Three nights in MILAN: Are these restaurants worthy?

Il Duomo | Apr 5, 201210:55 PM     5

My wife and I will be in Milan for the last weekend of May.  We've hunted through Chowhound, as well as a few Italian sites, and we've come up with a few restaurants on which we'd appreciate comments from you like-minded Chowhounders.

We have two goals, one of which is to have regional, Milanese food.  Ideally, we're looking for a restaurant that offers honest, Milanese fare in a comfortable setting.  No English menus would be nice, but we realize this might restrict our choices.  Based on what we've read on Chowhound, Antica Trattoria della Pesa and Trattoria degli Orti might be good options for us.  But we're really curious about Ristorante Damm-atrà. It seems to be popular and appreciated, but there's no mention of it here.  Do you have any firsthand experience there? 

Our other goal is to find a restaurant that we would reluctantly describe as trendy--the sort of place that captures Milan’s fashion-forward style in its food and decor.  The emphasis should be on its food, not its "see and be seen" quality.  Do you think L'Assassino would be a good fit?  It's been recommended here and there throughout this site, but not convincingly so.

As for our third dinner, it's our wildcard.  We're simply looking for good food, and we don't have any other agenda. Any thoughts on zerodue, Ristorante Dongiò, or other suggestions around 120€?

Thanks for the help, and of course you can expect a full report after our trip.
