Without a doubt one of Milan's most beautiful restaurants, this shabby-chic venue was once a tobacco store and is now a mad jumble of whitewashed brick walls, wooden tables, wrought-iron benches, a mismatch of lampshades, and wildly patterned floors. However, there is nothing shabby or jumbled about Chef Francesco Passalacqua's cooking—this is inspired modern Italian cuisine and a top-notch dining experience. Using regionally sourced produce, Passalacqua conjures up simple dishes incorporating traditional ingredients such as ravioli, risotto, seafood, and fine rare beef but with an extraordinarily delicate touch; it's pared-down modern cooking at its best. Absolutely one to watch.
