(Petit) is run by Simona Miele and Luca Guelfi, who own several restaurants in Italy and the Caribbean. (Petit) also has an older brother (Petit) in Miami. Located in the Porta Nuova neighbourhood, (Petit) breaks the code of alpine restaurants with its decor. The tables and chairs are of Parisian inspiration, while the mirrors and pale colours are Scandinavian. At night, the room is illuminated by more than a hundred chandeliers, candles, and candelabras, which give the space a cosy and romantic atmosphere. The Milanese love it…
The other part of the restaurant houses a grocery and a real Italian mama-style trattoria. The sausages are hung on the wall, the hams are enthroned beside the slicing machine and at your table, the menu offers a variety of homemade dishes that satisfy all appetites. Try, among others, the small macaroni carbonara and, for dessert, the Nutella crepe, a speciality of nearby Piedmont.
