On April 1st 2016 it reached its 30th anniversary, and it deserves an award for stoically resisting in a location where so many great restaurants and bars had to close shop. It also deserves an award for continuing to serve Italian food faithful to its origins, such as its andria burrata with truffle slices, its minestrone soup, its trofie al pesto or its ossobuco alla milanese. Also worthy of distinction: the staff, friendly and effective. Give all those awards to the proprietor, Maria Paola Porru, who also owns Casanova.
Time Out tips:
– Zabaglione is the house's (not so) secret dessert.
– The meat courses are good, but pastas are their forte.
– The decoration of the main dining room, with its light tones, reminds one of the old Pap'Açorda.
