Trattoria Masuelli San Marco since 1921

Milan – Do you know the feeling when you are invited for a family dinner? Now imagine you visit your relatives in Italy. If you like this feeling that your relatives cook you dinner and you just sit in the living room with a lot of different people – then you should go to Trattoria Masuelli. The nonno (granddad in Italian) and owner himself comes to your table to tell you about all the mouthwatering dishes – you will not have a problem to find something you like, but a problem to choose from the temptations.

The restaurant is very traditional and exists since many years in Milan. You can feel and see the history in the rooms with the high ceilings and picture frames on the walls.

I recommend the pasta as a first course and then the veal “Milanesa” (breaded veal chop; some might know it better as “Wiener Schnitzel” but I was told, the Milanesa was created before the Schnitzel) or taste the Saffron Risotto.

Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture from the Milanesa….I had wolfed it down already when I remembered…

We felt great and nicely fed after dinner – I would go again any time when in Milan.

Restaurant and Pizzeria Calafuria Unione – in the center of Milan

Milan – I got a weekend in Milan for my birthday from the loveliest friends you can have!

After a day full of shopping we were due for some pizza treat. The restaurant – located in the centre of Milan – was full when we arrived at around 8.30 pm. The clientèle is very mixed from the couple from the neighbourhood that just want a quick pizza to the tourist group from Sweden who enjoy the delights of the typical Italian cuisine.

We were treated very friendly and charming as expected from an Italian restaurant. You might not find the most exclusive fine wines or the latest interior design but the food was decent, prices very acceptable and all in all we enjoyed a very relaxed evening.
