Ristorante da Giacomo

The fish restaurant in Milan, the good one

When you want to eat fish, with well executed recipes and a touch of unmistakable Milanese charme, the answer can’t be other than Ristorante da Giacomo. This restaurant is the core of Via Sottocorno’s little gastronomic district, its irradiation center (which also includes a bistrot, a deli store, a bakery and a tobacco store). An old-style foyer, small tables and a serene décor, featuring a really bon ton pastel green boiserie, all to create a classical and sophisticated ambient.

Giacomo is one of the top destinations for lots of fish-lovers, fond of some particular dish or evergreen classic like the fish vaporata or the Giacomo-style fish soup. As a matter of fact, the menu is a real triumph of fresh fish delicacies cooked in a million different ways: grilled, fried, al cartoccio or alla mugnaia, Livornese-style, Sicilian-style, Ligurian-style. That’s why the restaurant is a favorite of the international and VIP clientele during fashion week or Salone del Mobile.

The only thing you have to do, besides ordering from the principal menu, will be leave a little room to the wonderful dessert tray, that comes straight from the patisserie owned by the titular Giacomo. A trap for eyes and stomach, that will both be payed back with every bite: among the many delicacies you will find the Sachertorte, a thousand different pastries freshly baked, the creme brulée cobbler and the almost mythological Bomba di Giacomo.

In short, Da Giacomo is a destination to discover, try out and try again without ever getting tired, an ace up your sleeve to pull out when you’ll want to surprise your guests and a safe place where you can always find quality meals and a kind of service that only few places can be proud of nowadays.

Via Monsignor Luigi Biraghi, 7 20063 Cernusco sul Naviglio

The sign at Osteria Perbacco is fun. A wine-colored owl with wide-eyed, comically strict eyes. Once inside it's clear that the animal is the official mascot of the place where wooden tables are filled with owls of every shape and color but that never seem redundant or annoying, though. The mise-en-place is homely (wooden tables, raw paper placemats, cutlery [...]

Via Torquato Taramelli, 70 20124 Milano

You known, the best and freshest fish is eaten in Milan. If you do not agree, it's because you've never been to eat it in the right places. As at A'Riccione, where the tradition of Romagna's riviera explodes on the palate with the freshness of the raw material and modern combinations. A place worth traveling Milan. [...]

You are literally hypnotized by the dark wood counter, the leather sofas, the crystal chandeliers and the piano. The environment is dark but not heavy: it is simply hidden, [...]
