Restaurant | "A great pleasure"

Tano Passami l'olio Photo, Milan, Italy
Quote:
The restaurant "Tano passami l` olio "all right (except, perhaps, its location). And locked the door that opens only after a phone call, and as such the lack of signage and the need to book a table, and the Michelin star, it deservedly received by the restaurant for the second year in a row.Table book earlier than 20.00 does not make sense. And then, even coming a bit late to the designated time, you most likely some time will feel very lonely, because before 21 hours of visitors at the restaurant almost did not happen.The interior of the restaurant: the restaurant looks more like an apartment consisting of two small rooms (and kitchen): a single 4 a table for two in the other tables a lit...Read More

Because of their abundance Duomo even jokingly called the "hedgehog". And of course, beautiful views from the roof of Milan.In the north-east.
