Wander behind the Duomo to a little piazza San Fedele on Via Tommaso Marino and you will find a delightful trattoria serving one of the best risottos in town.
Spilling outdoors to the paved street and nestled between marble buildings so typical of Milan, you will not be disappointed with the restaurant. You may pay premium price but the meal it is well worth it - risotto €15 - 18 - meat dishes at €2.
We shared a Barolo 2007 from the Piedmont region - Terre del Barolo - perfect for the ossobuco con risotto alla Milanese (while in Rome!).
Mark had a Porcino risotto served in a Parmesan basket. He loved the delicately flavored fresh porcini creamy and slightly al dente but was a little disappointed with the addition of fresh tomato to the risotto.
Just around the corner is a gelati store not to be missed - cioccolat Italian. It's arguably the beat chocolate gelati in Milan and Nastassia's favourite while living in here .
Judging by the line outside - solid for the time we have been eating lunch - she's not the only one who thinks so.
