It is impossible not to order a risotto alla Milanese saffron risotto in which butter and Parmesan cheese are added to make it creamy. It is so rich here that it is not an appetiser but a main course. It also comes in a lighter version, as the Ruggeri sisters have made the menu heavy on light, vegetarian cuisine to suit the slender silhouettes of Via Monte Napoleone.
All of the ‘Golden Quadrilateral' comes to this traditional trattoria, which also does ‘light' versions of minestrone, polenta with gorgonzola, and osso buco for lunch and dinner. For dessert, even just once, try the warm sabayon.
