CiaoMilano .:. Milano. Antica Focacceria San Francesco
 
.:. Antica Focacceria San Francesco
The parent focaccia bakery has been on duty in Palermo since 1834. It came into trouble with the Mafia, but finally spread out to include each and every building around the small Piazza San Francesco, except the medieval church. Today the Focacceria has become a company, with branches in several Italian cities.
.:. As for the Milanese branches - another Antica Focacceria is in Via Panfilo Castaldi 37, close to Porta Venezia - purists think that its cuisine is a bit industrial. Citizens and tourists, however, are happy to enjoy caponata, arancini and Sicilian wine served with courtesy a stone's throw from the Duomo.

.:. Divina Piadina
Cooked at the moment and fulfilled with a good choice of ingredients, this piadina romagnola is almost as good as the typical one of the north-eastern Italian Riviera around Rimini. Good for a fast break or take away.

The panzerotti (fried dough filled with tomato and mozzarella cheese, typical of Southern Italy) made by this historical bakery are a legend in town. By following your nose, you may find people staying in line in front of the entrance but don't worry: the service is fast and soon you will be able to eat at the counter or simply strolling in the city centre.
