In the heart of the new Milan, in the shadow of Porta Nuova skyscrapers, there is a restaurant-pizzeria that it’s always full, for lunch and dinner. We are talking about AmaMi, in via Amerigo Vespucci 1, a real treat for lovers of Italian cuisine and thin, unleavened pizza, which is done by true masters and which is virtually impossible to find elsewhere in the city.
AmaMi is the classic restaurant designed to top list of the most popular places to have dinner with friends or family for several reasons. The first is definitely the quality of food, which never leaves you disappointed. The Italian menu, authentic and genuine, offers specialties which vary each season, aiming to make you rediscover forgotten flavors with easily traceable origin, thanks to direct procurement of raw materials from Italian producers of guaranteed quality.
The pizza, as already mentioned, is one of a kind: thin, crunchy and light, prepared using non-refined flours, such as millet, hulled wheat, cereals and Senatore Cappelli (a variety of durum wheat). Having at least one per week is definitely a must.
The second reason is the atmosphere. Minimal and warm tones in the interior decor in addition to the distinctive exterior overlooking the skyscrapers, create a perfect setting for cheerful evenings together, at the same time simple and with no shade of pretentiousness, making us come back here every time our fridge is empty.
Thirdly, the service. Fast, professional and attentive. The passion of the owners and the staff makes you feel comfortable and wanting to chat or drink a prosecco while waiting for your outdoor table, often occupied during the warm season… but it’s worth it, and the wait doesn’t make you nervous at all!
Open from 8am until midnight, the fourth reason why AmaMi will become the landmark for those who live in the area, is an offering which covers all daily meals with great options available for breakfast, lunch, aperitivo and dinner.
The fifth reason, if you are still not convinced, is to be found directly in the name: AmaMi (LoveMe). Because this little place makes you fall in love with itself from the first sight. With summer in the air, can we think of a feeling stronger than love? We can’t, and when in doubt, know that at least once or twice a week you’ll find us here. Because for us the love for great, beautiful places in Milan always seals the deal. Enjoy your meal!
