Pasticceria Cucchi

It's like going back in time to the lovely, forgotten “dolce vita”

There are some places that make you wanna be elegant, to dress up without overdressing. Places that make you wanna treat yourself and be chic. Well, Pasticceria Cucchi makes you wanna be all of this but it is the perfect place to go alone to during the weekend and find time to read your favorite magazine in total peace.


It makes you wanna order a cappuccino or a coffee and quiche (who’s counting calories anyway?) and chill out. Look around. Watching the wide variety of customers that, uninvited (except by the exquisite delicacies), seem to having casually stepped out the set of a vintage movie. Fancy women in their furs chatting with their old friends, families with kids, an old man puffing on a cigar with his dog at his side, two girls with not a hair out of place whose sunglasses hide last night’s unforgettable escapades. It’s like a camera is rolling.

You don’t come to Cucchi just to eat something, in here you discover the treasures of Milanese patisserie. Besides panettone and colomba (the one with chocolate is incredible) that you can find, freshly made, every time of the year, their list is full of treats: the bignolata, for instance, or the Cecca with the candied cedar and orange peel and almonds. If the occasion is an afternoon tea break, the best for you is El Meneghin, an “original” type of cake with candied fruits, perfect for every moment of the day, that Mr. Cucchi advises to wash down with glass of maraschino, and the two more traditional Amor Polenta and Pan Meino. The former is a plumcake-kind of dessert to slice and pair with gianduja cream, while the latter is a very ancient traditional biscuit that you eat along with liquid cream.

We always suggest, if the weather allows it, to sit outside, even in winter mornings. It’s like going back in time to the lovely, forgotten “dolce vita”. It’s about enjoying the little things, done with care. Order another coffee and dreamily get up feeling as if somehow you played a part in one of the best modern day films about old time Milan.

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