Food and drink
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).
