Best for Families - Expert review of Pizzeria di Gennaro
There are relatively few affordable restaurants in the historic heart of Milan. The Gennaro has been turning out pizzas since 1934, long before the area became really fashion-conscious. It’s a haven for those looking for somewhere to kick off their stilettos or put down their guide books and relax in more homely surroundings.
It is a pizzeria, so let's start there. There’s a long list of options available (about 40 in total including some surprisingly exotic options for Italy), all cooked in the wood-fired pizza oven. But there’s also an excellent array of antipasti, pasta and the inevitable saffron risotto.
Friendly and relaxed, and very bright - with red tables and bright yellow walls covered in pictures of racing cars. The place is always packed.
Service can get a little erratic, but comes with a smile.
Just around the corner from the Duomo – the perfect location.
Not the cheapest pizzas in town, but a welcome respite from the huge prices in the neighbourhood. Expect to pay 30-40 euros for a meal.
