In just two minutes from Navigli, behind a little red door near the railway station of Porta Genova, there are waiters serving pieces of the Milan’s culinary tradition. The offer is wide, but it is a good place to try the typical Milanese dishes such as risotto or cotoletta. During the cold days the Brasato is perfect but when I want to eat pasta I never miss the pappardelle with zucchine and zafferano.
The warm atmosphere, a hot dish and a glass of wine will be perfect to fight against the cold, and the smiling Angelo, a very welcoming person, makes everybody feel at home. This Milanese osteria has no more than 30 seats, and it will be better for you to reserve a place because most of the people who come here look forward to come back.
El Barbapedana even has a special menu for lunch and a reduction if someone wants the take-away service.
