What To Wear To Bacaro del Sambuco


Marchesi 1824

“Marchesi serves by far the best coffee on via Montenapoleone and ordering the rice budino is a must. However I always buy the panettone for my family Christmas lunch on via Santa Marta alla Porta—the original location.” -Luciano Barbera

Via Santa Maria alla Porta, 11/a, 20123 Milano MI, Italy

Il Baretto al Baglioni

“Mr. Ermanno and Mr. Vincenzo used to run the original ‘Baretto’ on via St.Andrea, where they served the best martinis. The Milanese people would always stop for a drink and a bite after a show, They have moved the restaurant to the Baglioni Hotel on via Senato / via Spiga. They lost some heritage but the food and service are still the best.” -Luciano Barbera
