Don't know what traditional Milanese cuisine
is like? Lost between mondeghili
and rostin negàa
.:. Casa Fontana
Milan's first course par excellence is rice, cooked here in twentythree different ways (and made to order).
.:. Also croquettes, quiches, and special pastries or ice cream.
Piazza Carbonari 5

.:. El Brellin
In bygone days, washerwomen did their laundry at the nearby stone-clad basin kneeling on a stall, or 'predellino', which is what the name of the restaurant means in Milanese dialect. Overlooking the Naviglio Grande canal, the Brellin has a warm atmosphere with wooden ceilings and fireplaces. Milanese and Lombard cuisine with a touch of creativity.
Porta Genova FS
[+39] 02 58101351
In a maze of old Milan streets, this one-time trattoria sticks to local gastronomic traditions. Don't miss the delicious hot zabaglione for dessert (strictly cholesterol-unwise).
