Gattullo is one of the most famous places in Milan for sandwiches, cakes and pastries.
The place is just the same as it was in the late 70′s. The furniture, lamps and cutlery look so stylish in my opinion, and the “panini” are just a must-try. I recommend you to go for the “Gattullino” (which gets its name from the owner of the bar) or the Manhattan (with shrimps, artichokes, rocket-salad, smoked cheese and cocktail sauce). The original recipe includes also ham but I always ask to have it without and I think it’s excellent.
If I come here for lunch I will also have a small slice of homemade pizza (with fresh zucchini or onions) and at the end, together with coffee, a small pastry with fresh raspberry and chocolate.
When I lived in the area I often had breakfast with cappuccino and croissants and my favourite was the Kipferl with blueberry jam, but the croissants with crème are also wonderful.
The prices are not so friendly but for the quality of ingredients this is a place where I like to take my friends to experience a wonderful “Italian panino”.
Moreover it is situated in a nice and lively area close to Bocconi University and close to Navigli area, but less touristic so highly recommended!
