This pretty Italian boite with neighborhood appeal is especially noted for its house-made pastas and seafood dishes such as tuna carpaccio, grilled Monterey Bay squid and shellfish linguine, all prepared with fresh, wild-caught fish. Authentic antipasti include local burrata, skewered chicken livers (fegatini alla griglia) and air-cured Alpine beef (bresaola Valtellinese). Tiramisu makes for a happy ending.
The flavors of Milano's food and the rhythm of
the dining room are powerfully reminiscent of the crowded trattorie tucked
into the alleys of Italy's big cities.
FOUR STARS. A small, stylish restaurant serving
some of the best Northern Italian dishes in town, at moderate prices.
