Best for Value for money - Expert review of Ristorante Mistral
Mistral began life as a deli in the 1960s but soon transformed itself into an innovative trattoria that uses fresh seasonal produce and a light and imaginative modern touch to update traditional favourites.
The food is firmly rooted in Milanese tradition with a good range of fish and vegetarian options, creamy risottos and wonderful desserts. Traditional favourites are mixed in with imaginative creations such as swordfish with red pepper and fresh ginger.
On Thursday evenings, they do porceddu - Sardinian spit-roasted suckling pig - my guilty pleasure. I feel mean, but oh, it tastes so good!
The décor is delightfully fresh and simple, mixing old and new to great effect with bare tables, mismatched old-fashioned wooden chairs, tiled floors and banquettes around the walls. There is a small outdoor terrace with directors’ chairs.
The service is friendly and charming, the atmosphere laid-back and welcoming.
This is definitely off the radar as far as the main tourist route is concerned, just outside the ring road in the southeast corner of the city. But it's worth a short trip by metro or taxi.
For the quality of the food, the prices are very reasonable. Expect to pay up to around 50 euros a head.
