Antiche Cibarie – Artisanal food

The first time I saw it was from the other side of the road and I didn’t like it at all, then I explored it from the threshold and I decided to enter and go into the cellar they have downstairs, where I changed my mind. To be honest I don’t think it’s one of the best places in Milan, but it is very close to the city centre and many other touristic places, plus it is fairly affordable, given its position. But let’s see some more.

The ceiling is made of grey and brown cross vaulted stone and where there isn’t stone there is wood, which really enhances the rural and rustic feeling.

The food is mainly Italian and Spanish. The time I really had a blast I ate a “panino” with culatello (richly cured ham), pecorino toscano (a super tasty cheese), nut sauce and truffle oil, all watered down with some red wine. Plus, they have delicious desserts and artisanal beers both for staying or to go.

The cost is about average but if you go for the aperitif you’ll enjoy an abundant buffet with stuffed focaccia (soft tasty bread) and much more, always accompanied by a few chosen drinks. The crowd consists of heterogeneous people, and the place itself is likewise stuffed with really diverse elements. Finally it’s really close to the centre and it is not one of those touristy places you would normally find in such a central area.
