You surely won’t bump into this place by mistake. To get there you have to cross a long courtyard hidden in a little street called Via Giovenale which is not the busiest one. Once you walk through the doors, you’ll take a closer look at the countryside furniture and the 18th century walls still burnt, you realize this is the right place: an old metal foundry turned into a Bar, restaurant / kitchen school.
When I first went, it was a Saturday night and I must admit that it was a bit chaotic for the staff in the kitchen, and for the waitresses to manage all that unexpected amount of people since they had opened recently, but I do think this place deserves a second chance.
Milanese people fight constantly against time, so I guess that I’m becoming just like them. But in any case it is definitely a place worth to go. If you end up in this area (close to san Gottardo) by 18:30, they are opened for aperitivo (happy hour) and you can just relax sitting outside with a drink and practice the art of “dolce far niente”.
