IL LUOGO DI AIMO E NADIA
Cuisine: Traditional Tuscan
Style / Ambiance: This family restaurant, run by Aimo and Nadia, has become a big hit in Milan having been awarded two Michelin stars.
The tasting menu is the best way to sample Aimo and Nadia’s knowledge and love of Tuscan cuisine. It includes subtle Italian flavored dishes such as ‘Sirloin of veal mountain Fassona’. The walls are covered with bold abstract art work and the service is impeccable.
Style / Ambiance: High fashion and local business meet in this understated yet stylish restaurant found on an anonymous residential street just 15 minutes from the historical center.
While dining among Milan’s elegant locals, don’t be surprised if you see Giorgio Armani or Orlando Bloom enjoying the cuisine too. If you’re not looking out for celebrities the decor is something to be marveled at: celadon-colored walls, bookshelves and a striking mosaic floor provide exquisite surroundings. The cuisine is seafood prepared with wonderful Italian simplicity. Try the linguine tossed with scampi and zucchini flowers.
