Great sandwich, great coffee, great conversation – who could ask for more?

In 2010 it was the 30th anniversary of one of Milan’s favourite sandwich shops, a place so popular it now has five branches in the city and has spread out across Italy and the world. UK city dwellers are familiar with the concept – we spend our lives buying paninis and capuccinos in Italian coffee shops. This shop, open since 1979, was one of those that inspired the trend.

Food and drink

These are no ordinary panini. They pride themselves on their organic ingredients, their specially produced Parma ham, Bologna sausage with pistachio nuts, the richly flavoured truffle oil and pesto. You can also get great salads, soups, pastas and other main courses both to eat in and take out. There are also some luscious cakes and desserts. 

Ambience

This is the original shop with a cosy traditional feel. It has wooden tables and chairs and photos on the walls. It became an instant hit for young people to hang out late into the night and remained equally popular ever since, always bulging at the seams.

Service

Rushed but efficient. The place is packed so there isn't usually time for small talk. 

Location

In the increasingly trendy Garibaldi/Brera district. 

Price advice

Cheap and cheerful, starting at around five euros for a panini. 

Branches

There are other branches in Navigli, Vercelli, Porta Venezia and near the Duomo.
