Trattoria Mirta is like being home. Apart from the fact that the owner is my lovely cousin Cristina, let me say that Mirta’s cuisine and atmosphere are truly among the best in Milan. Juan, Cristina’s husband, is an incredibly talented chef and he chooses everyday fresh and genuine ingredients for his recipes. Wine selection is always good and the space’s feeling is homely and informal. Mirta is in Piazza San Materno 12, not far from Lambrate. My personal suggestion: let a small space in your stomach to try Juan’s speciality “tortino al cioccolato”! I really adore it!!
