This is a pizzeria you can find all over the globe and still, you can taste where they came from: Napels. The pizza’s are made in the traditional Neapoletan style, in a stone-oven with the most beautiful ingredients from the south of Italy.

Since it’s a busy restaurant and a stone-oven is not the fastest way to prepare pizzas for a whole restaurant, it takes a while before you have one in front of you. But luckily they have the most amazing appetizers! There are a few recipes from the south of Italy you have to try, like: Paccheri (Neapoletan pasta filled with ricotta), Montanare (deep-fried mini pizza’s) and Panzerotti (small deep-fried pastries with various fillings).

This is a restaurant that follows the main rule of Italian cuisine: the simpeler the dish, the better the taste. And the taste is accomplished by the traditional ingredients they use. For example “La Verace” pizza is with San Marzano tomatoes, buffel mozzarella from Campania, extra virgine olive oil from Sorrento and basil. It might sound boring but it’s not like any other “mozzarella pizza” you’ve ever eaten!

Rossopomodoro is a pretty popular restaurant so I recommend making reservations! There are a few restaurants in Milan, but my favourite location is on Via Molino delle Armi. After eating here, you can always get a drink at Colonne di San Lorenzo that’s right behind it and start your evening out on the town!
