Restaurants and Trattorie has a lot to offer, for our pleasure, so that our only task is to taste food without spending that much. In the following paragraph I’ll rapidly review 3 remarkable Restaurant in Milan.

Antica Hostaria della Lanterna (Milano)

Restaurant in Lombardy

Situated in a cross street of “Corso Italia” it hosts customers in a little and simple building with few tables. An authentic Trattoria, that hasn’t changed even tough catering evolution over time.

A lady tells us orally in “milaness” (Milan’s dialect) the menu of the dinner: 3 main course and 2 second course. We chose “maccheroni allo zafferano e crudo” and “osso buco” combined with boiled potatoes. Both dishes were well cooked and tasty. After an Adequate bill we exit from the Trattoria pleased for the magical time travel that the atmosphere offered. You totally should make a reservation.

La Libreria (Via Palermo,21 Milano)

Restaurant in Lombardy

Its building reflects the story of the city, it’s located in the very centre of artist’s district in Brera and has a welcoming old style atmosphere. You won’t regret its traditional drinks and copious food made with high quality standards. La Libreria is the classic as-it-used-to-be Trattoria with as-it-used-to-be prices (low one). The landlady is rough but very pleasant. If you want to grab a seat just book it! This Trattoria is often crowded.

Antica Trattoria della Pesa (Viale Pasubio,10 Milano)

Restaurant in Lombardy

It offers excellent tranditional dishes: “risotto allo zafferano”, “cotoletta”, “osso buco”, “trippa”, and a fair variety of wines, “bonarda” is light, fresh, flavourful and not that hard to drink. Waiting service suits customer’s requests and it’s very fast. Prices are a bit high, it can be said that this is the traditional Milan Restaurant in every way but overall it’s worth the price, very tasty.

Ristorante e trattorie della valtellina

Once you cross from Est to West the river Adda, you’ll reach Como’s lake where the traditional most famous dish is wild animal meat combined with full-bodied wine. Valtellina is the area with the oldest and rich cooking tradition of Lombardy.

Other courses that deserve mention are first one: “Polenta alla Valtellinese” with “grana” cheese and butter, “Pizzoccheri della Valtellina” combined with a side dish of potatoes, “fontina”, spinach and  Savoy cabbage last but not least “Supa de can” is a traditional soup combined with stale bread made from eggs…

Osteria del Benedet (Via Roma 2,23014 Delebio, Italia)

Restaurant in Lombardy

An historical three-level building well refined and that can be proud of an excellent wine cellar. The main room is clean and there is enough spaces between tables that are set with wonderful tablecloth. The menu is short, this means that they worked on it even because the dishes are difficult to cook and understand. In particular we requested meat based dishes. Waiting service was professional, it was a shame we didn’t find distillate menu. Fair Price, and good quality quantity to price ratio.
