Still my favourite restaurants in Milan: Restaurant Cantina della Vetra (12. July 2020)

The Cantina della Vetra used to be my absolute favourite restaurant when I was living in Milan – and I think it still kind of is. The problem when you have something in mind which was excellent and your absolute favourite more than 10 years ago, the chances to be disappointed are huge. However, while […]

Better than expected but far from excellent: Restaurant Taverna del Borgo Antico (11. July 2020)

Better than expected but far from excellent: Restaurant Taverna del Borgo Antico (11. July 2020)

Somehow, Brera was the area of the weekend, so I ended up dining at the Taverna del Borgo Antico which looks quite touristic from the outside but the waiters at least don’t behave like that and try to lure you in. I went for the “bruschetta con pomodoro fresco e basilico (2 pieces)” (EUR 5.00) […]

When you discover a not so touristy restaurant in Brera: Restaurant Osteria di Brera (10. July 2020)

And just when I had thought that I have tried almost every restaurant in Brera, I realised that it wasn’t the case. The Osteria di Brera is in that sense lovely as there is no annoying guy to try to get you in to eat. And it also looks lovely in terms of atmosphere and […]

Great Italian dishes despite the touristic area: Restaurant Vetusta Insigna (9. July 2020)

Great Italian dishes despite the touristic area: Restaurant Vetusta Insigna (9. July 2020)

Finding a decent restaurant in a touristy place like Navigli is not really easy – however, somehow I managed to find exactly that. The Vetusta Insigna has small tables right next to the canal and if you’re lucky enough, you get a table there which is, admittedly, very tiny in terms of space but it […]

The place would be perfect if there wasn’t glass in my dessert: Restaurant La Cantina di Manuela (24. November 2018)

The place would be perfect if there wasn’t glass in my dessert: Restaurant La Cantina di Manuela (24. November 2018)

The evening started so well with “tortelli’s pasta stuffed with pumpkins on blue cheese cream and chestnuts” (EUR 12.00) which was absolutely mouth-watering. The stuffing was rich, full of flavour, and just absolutely perfect! The pasta was perfectly al dente and just made you happy. The journey continued the same way when I was enjoying […]

The perfect location to warm yourself up in the middle of the navigli area: Felix Navigli Bar (24. November 2018)

The perfect location to warm yourself up in the middle of the navigli area: Felix Navigli Bar (24. November 2018)

While walking along the navigli, I decided to take a short break and enjoy a “double espresso” (EUR 2.00) and a “Club Sandwich Il Milanese (salame milano, salsa tartara, formaggio edamer, insalata)” (EUR 6.00) which was functional, tasty, perfect to warm yourself up and fill your stomach. The place itself is tiny really but there […]

Great Italian dishes a bit hidden away: Trattoria Trombetta (23. November 2018)

The Trattoria Trombetta is hidden away so a bit tricky to find. Once you’ve found the entrance though, they make sure you’re welcomed in a very comfortable manner. There is a little waiting area until your table is ready and once you’re seated the waiter attends you right away. I went for the “Risotto Milanese […]
