In Milan, like in many other growing cities, it has become harder to find places that aren’t overpriced. Here, the quality of dishes is guaranteed by chef Tommaso, a former apprentice of Romito, and the wines list by Carlo, who recently topped the Top 10 Wine Bars List in Italy for the other place they own and manage in Milan, together with Noemi: La Sala del Vino.
La Sala Bistrot is the new project of the talented trio and what they have to offer is worth paying a visit if you’re wandering around China Town or Sempione Park; it’s literally a few minutes away.
About their wines offers, more than 350 wineries of mainly Italian organic wines and small producers, but not necessarily; wine needs to be good or as they like to say “wine does not need to stink to be good.”
Food: Tommaso brings in a curated mix of Mediterranean, Italian and contemporary cuisine, with no geographical limits. The dishes often tell stories of his hometown in Liguria, Sanremo a few miles from the French border.
To conclude: La Sala Bistrot is an informal place where you feel at home, they have attentive service to details and are perfect for lunch, dinner or an aperitif à la “bar à vin”. It’ s a small bistro, with a limited menu of dishes, where eating and drinking have the same importance; a place “I would like to go to!”, as chef Tommaso likes to say, and I agree.
