This restaurant/cafe is on Via Dante, which is on the long road leading up to Castello Sforzesco (just a few blocks from the Duomo). It is like a diner in the U.S. The menu was in English also, which helped. Very good food, served very quickly!
Favorite Dish: I got the baked lasagne and it was OUTSTANDING! Best lasagne I've ever had. YUM!
Ah... this is a place where I've spent many lunches or coffe breaks... :)
There are quite many Spizzicos in Milan, and one of the restaurants were located just 50 meters away from my school.
Yes, we had some pizzas there... ;)
Fast food, so the quality of the meal is as you can imagine. I often had one of the combinations, a pizza slice, pommes frites and a coke. Cheap and good.
There was also this cheese/tomato cake, which I had a lot in the beginning. Watch out, since the cheese is very hot when you get it.
And very easy to spill out, so watch it when you're eating it...
Favorite Dish: A pizza margarita at Spizzico... ah, the pizzaiolis in Napoli are craving for this madness to stop, since this is as far from italian pizza as one can come. But it's good, most of the time. If you're unlucky you will get a slice that is so thin it looks like a paper.
And worse, it taste like paper too...
But most of the time it's really good, at least for a quick lunch.
Spizzico is cheap, which brings a lot of different kind of people there. I always found it very amusing to look at the old italian women who sat there half the day, eating pizza slices, while chatting with their friends.
Their husbands were probably those who sat on the cafés, so they met at Spizzico instead! :)
Spizzico have many different menues, but you can also buy a simple pizza slice for example. Just like any other fast food chain in other words.
The food here is not that great but it is a break from the fast food hamburger chains you will pass on the street searching for an affordable place to eat.
Favorite Dish: No favorite dishes but do you want pizza or a Big Mac in Italy?
Maybe it's not the best restaurant in Milan (sure) but Spizzico allows you to recover energy after a hard morning walking down the streets of Milan and the most important: it's really cheap and it's possible to taste some of the most known Italian dishes 8not only pizza and pasta!. Moreover, there are at least 10 Spizzico's in Milan (Duomo, Airport, Via Dante, Corso Buenos Aires, Stazione Cadorna...).
