Expert review of La Pesa
Chef Silvano Ghezzi worked in some of the city’s grandest kitchens before coming here, adding a deft modern touch to regional traditions from around Italy. Not to be confused with the better known Antica Trattoria della Pesa (Viale Pasubio 10), which is also excellent, this up-and-coming trattoria manages to marry tradition and modernity successfully.
Old favourites such as the ubiquitous saffron risotto and osso bucco are perennials, but the rest of the menu changes monthly with mouth-watering options such as braised beef in barolo wine with polenta. There are daily specials from tripe to casouela, an excellent wine list and, unusually, a selection of draft beers.
Beams, checked tablecloths, candles, wooden chairs and baskets of breadsticks – this has all the great traditions, with several small dining rooms and an outdoor area for warmer weather.
Attentive and friendly service.
A little way out of the centre, near the San Siro stadium.
Because it's a little out of the way, this is great value (comparatively). Expect to pay up to about 50 euros for a three course meal without wine.
