We just finished our second night in Milano, catching up on needed sleep. They city is very active as this is Fashion Week in Milano and you can see activity everywhere. The weather is pefect, 20-22 C and we walk everywhere.
The photos above are from Starbucks Reserve. With the competition for caffè in Italy, they are doing very well.There was a waiting line go get in, but when I approached a security guard, he ushered Angela and I into the building. They say I look Italian, it does help sometimes.
Last night we had the best meal ever in Italy. That says a lot as this is our nineteenth trip here. Amazingly, it is next to our Airbnb. The ristorante is Ferrelli a Milano. Vino e Cucina . The chef is from Puglia, southern Italy. The menu is very simple and changes daily. I had pasta with pomidori ( three types of tomatoes) a bit of parmigiana and it was delicious. My wife had the tenderloin strips of beef cooked medium rare. Local Pugliesi wine, Nero di Troia wine complemented the meal. We were treated to 4 glasses of limoncello. We shared a torta al cioccolato for our dolce.
IF you are in Milano, I highly recommend this small treasure.
UPDATE. The correct descriptions of our meals are
Angela La Tagliata di Scamone al Pepe Bocciolo e Rosmarino
