Milan: San Glicerio Uno

Mambo italiano con la famiglia

If there’s one place that can get a Gastropolitan both delighted and infuriated, that’s definitely Milan. Let’s admit it, it might be praised as one of the most cosmopolitan European destinations, but when it comes to food, most eateries turn out to be either tourist traps or just over-priced.

After some rigorous research, our tummies were happy to land at San Glicerio Uno for a seafood-focused dinner. It’s true, Milanese cuisine seems to have more to do with beef and cheese than anything else, but if you’re up for a refreshing change of scenery influenced by the southern cucina pugliese, San Glicerio Uno is a reliable choice.

With a cozy atmosphere, Italian spoken all over the place and old school wooden interior, this place seems like a blast from the past in terms of aesthetics. Black and white pictures with the owners’ family on the walls, the owner himself chatting with the guests to see if everything is going alright… basically, what we all secretly wish to find in Italy and we most often don’t.

What you're eating:
The taste journey comprising a choice of antipasti, primi, secondi.
What you're drinking:
Local Italian wine, of course.
The extra mile for:
Bringing the cucina pugliese heritage to Milan.
