Best for Romance - Expert review of 13 Giugno
Sicily brings a touch of southern sun to northern Italy with this warm and friendly seafood restaurant, which manages to find exactly the right balance of great food, comfortable surroundings, and friendly service. Piles of lemons quite literally bring the scent of the Mediterranean to the table, ready to complement super-fresh fish and seafood with the strong flavours and colours typical of southern cuisine.
There is just enough for non-fish eaters, but this is a seafood restaurant, and the food is enticing, with a number of Sicilian specialities such as the spigola alla siciliana (castelvetrano olives, salty capers and tomatoes). They do a four-course tasting menu of Sicilian specialities as well as excellent seafood platters including a fabulous carpaccio of grouper, tuna, and ricotta (with lemon oil, capers and mint). Leave space for dessert.
This is thoroughly old-fashioned comfort with the clubby elegance that Milan seems to love when it kicks off its Jimmy Choos – wood-panelled walls lined with wine bottles, parlour palms and a winter garden. There’s always a buzz and a piano player adds a party atmosphere.
Italian service at its finest – welcoming, efficient, friendly and thoroughly entertaining.
A little way out, about 200m from the Central Station, to the north-east of the city centre, but worth the trek.
Expect to pay about 50–80 euros for a three-course meal without wine.
There is a second branch in Brera: Piazza Mirabello 1, Milan, 20121 (Tel 02 2900 3300).
