Carlo e Camilla in Segheria

Dining in a warm, intoxicating and sexy atmosphere with Luca Pedata's dishes and Federico Volpe's cocktails

“A cigarette that bares a lipstick’s traces…” the tunes of Billie Holiday float in the air as your eye wanders around this unusual place, Carlo e Camilla in Segheria, trying to define its limits and edges; it’s extraordinary. The atmosphere is immediately warm, intoxicating and… sexy. A small door opens to a metal sliding gate on Via Meda 24 and, given the area we’re in, there’s nothing that would anticipate the utter enchantment that hides behind it.

So getting right down to business, the contrasts. First: the space. In an overpopulated Milan that gets more crowded by the minute, here you can lose yourself looking at the high ceilings trying to understand the distribution of the area which is so different from the norm.

Second: the concept. Two long, “T-shaped” tables wind along the main hall inviting the guests to sit together regardless of whether they know each other or not. And for us, normally so protective of our privacy, it can be a bit jarring at first, but you quickly shed that barrier just as you would if you happened to be out in a group where you only know one other person. You know, you figure no one else knows you, so you can be whoever you want and let your inhibitions down.

Third: the environment. An old, post-industrial sawmill. Exposed walls and visible beams mixed with minimal style furnishings designed by the art director, Tanya SolciCracco’s partner in this venture, who has attended to every last detail. Example, on a naked table out jumps an exciting “out-of-production” porcelain, obviously Richard Ginori. It’s stuff like that! But that’s not all, numbered teapots, plates, silverware and pitchers of every kind line the length of the table. Just imagine yourself as Alice in her Wonderland at the Mad Hatter’s tea party and you’ve got the picture. Rich, crystal chandeliers and seats by A. G. Fronzoni and Jasper Morrison complete the scene so there’s a real mix of unusual components.

Then there’s the bar: holy grail of Federico Volpe, who dishes out the most unique creations and whose cocktails would be the envy of even the poshest London bar. Fourth: the exterior. A space decorated with rustic style brings bygone days to mind, different lives, forgotten places.

Fifth, last but certainly not least, the star attraction: the food. Sublime. But who was even doubting it? Luca Pedata guides a young team of enthusiastic cooks to create marvelous dishes that words can’t even begin to describe; that’s just how good they are. Every forty-five days you can enjoy a different menu and it’s a great excuse to come back. Convinced, yet? We are totally hooked!

We can't. That's why every week we share the best experiences milan has to offer.
