There Roman cuisine like in Milan. Right in the city of diet, gluten-free and vegan, they open signs that focus on genuine cuisine, focusing on pasta carbohydrates and a (somewhat stereotyped) repertoire of traditional dishes.

The capital lands in Milan, in the last period thanks to a new opening: Sciura Lella, modern rotisserie with the objective of Make pajata great again. But over the course of a year they also came direct from Rome, Felice in Testaccio, the white pizza and the supplì of the new Romoletto and it streetfood gourmet de il Trapizzino, a sign that the Capitoline restaurant is becoming stronger and that up north it lacks true good food.

Apart from the news, there are historical places of Roman cuisine in Milan to drink, and they are worth the effort, especially in the quality / price ratio. The general advice is to eat pasta and, if not in specific cases, to glissare on the rest of the menu – but of pasta, even two dishes.

Sciura Lella

Modern rotisserie with seating, delivery and take away. The guys from Sciura Lella – viale Col di Lana make a mix between Milanese format and the Roman menu.

Cheese and Pepper

Rather than a trattoria, this restaurant has a Nineties look, but for many it serves the best Cacio e pepe in the city (in version tonnarelli).
Viale Gian Galeazzo, 3

Felice in Testaccio

The second sign of this historic Roman trattoria opened in the fall, with no changes to the environment or menu. Even the original has now been restructured and infectious and in Milan the atmosphere is the same, elegant with details of a non-plastered wall and with a real restaurant tablecloth.


Rome's most famous "pizza corner" arrives in Milan. Its inventor, Stefano Callegari, put a lot of soul and research into making street food walkable, everything that is traditional, cooked as your grandmother would have done.
Via Marghera, 12

Osteria delle Commari

From Rome to Milan in the Piazza Fontana area, a strictly Roman menu with appetizers, first and second courses.
Carbonara Amatriciana, gricia, cacio e pepe, arrabbiata, mint and pecorino, com primi. Trasteverine and sweet and sour codfish with pine nuts, onion and raisins to leave the usual pattern of tripe and saltimbocca.
Via Vincenzo Civerchio, 9


Abbottega, a restaurant of the Ranucci group in via Muratori, combines typical Italian dishes, from Lazio, Umbria and Tuscany. You can buy cheese and salami typical of central Italy in the small shop at the entrance.
Via Lodovico Muratori, 11

Ai Balestrari

The Ai Balestrari Restaurant was born in 1862 "in the popular core of Campo de 'Fiori". Today it has also opened in Milan, on the Navigli, for 160 seats.
Via Cardinale Ascanio Sforza, 13


Roman Trattoria with a view of the San Lorenzo Columns and many outdoor tables. Mixed fry for two, rigatoni, sauce of the vaccinara, half portions of first courses only for the female public (if it ever needs it!).
Via dei Fabbri, 1


From the original white pizza to the shovel to the more curious and creative versions, from the traditional substitute on the phone to its variations in sauce and cheese and pepper. The white pizza is leavened for a good 48 hours, processed with a high degree of hydration, is light, of easy digestion, with that typical crunchy texture outside and soft inside and the golden and irregular surface. Simple to the blade, topped on the surface, filled at the moment at will or served with typical Roman vegetables.
Corso di Porta Ticinese 14

Osteria Nonna Maria

Perhaps the least known of the series (probably due to the lack of a press office), is a very pretty Roman trattoria in the neighborhood. Tones of green and simple furniture, not done by an architect and where imperfections are a plus. In season, many artichokes in salads, pie, stuffing, pasta obviously as a first course (carbonara and vaccinara sauce) and second courses. For dessert, tiramisu will appeal to lovers of the genre. House wine and Roman craft beer.
Via Macedonio Melloni, 40

Giulio bread and ojo

Restaurant no longer brand new but historical sign of Roman cuisine in Milan, since 1999, Giulio pane e ojo is part of David Ranucci's group of restaurants, all concentrated in via Muratori (the others are Abbottega and Casa Tua).
Via Lodovico Muratori, 10

Volemose Well

Here, offal regularly appears, and this does it honor – because in Milan then in the end even in the restaurants of Roman cuisine pajata, coratella and tripe appear rarely.
Via della Moscova, 25

Roman Kitchen Ponte Milvio

Trattoria in the Porta Venezia area, informal and open until late evening with tables also outdoors. Very honored to serve Tognazza wines at their tables, the estate of the late Count Mascetti. Tuesday pasta and chickpeas, Wednesday pasta and beans, Roman-style cod on Friday … every day of the week a different dish, oven-baked lamb of the weekend.
Via Lazzaro Spallanzani, 6
