A lunch break that feels like home

There are places in Milan that resist to the passage of time and trends, places worthy of being discovered for their authenticity, like Latteria La Cicala. Looking at the sign you’ll maybe feel a little nostalgia of those old grocery stores with packs of biscuits and pasta, with coffee grinders and the chinotto in a fridge full of icicles.Latteria - La Cicala

Before entering read well the access conditions, simple but not trivial requisites that help the clientele to understand if Latteria is the place they’re looking for. Among these we notify: they will to set and clear the table, not asking for a written menu and being lovers of homely atmospheres. If the place is right, there’s nothing else to do but come in.

If you want a coffee, just ask, then serve yourself before sitting down: sugar and teaspoons are available for everyone, just like at your house.

If you love homemade kitchen, you won’t be disappointed. The artisanal menu contains the best of culinary tradition. It’s never the same, depending of what the market sells and seasonality, you can even create your own dish. While you wait your order, look around and search for the details of the place: postcards, clipped newspapers, vintage items, meticulous details that will make you feel like a movie set.


If you drop by during afternoon snack time, don’t miss the cakes, like the famous one with  apples. Anna doesn’t keep secrets in her kitchen and always speaks openly about her recipes. Her cake is made with carefully selected apples, rice and mais flour, potato starch and water.

The place is big enough for two set tables, like in an osteria, with checkered red-and-white tablecloths and pitchers of free water on the tables. Conviviality is another strength, so be disposed to socialize with your neighbor. Latteria closes before dinner, but be sure that in any hour of the day Anna will be able to satisfy your every need.
