Milan is in ferment. Day after day the city grows, its underground lines expand, palaces become larger and new streets are born. In the middle of this fervor, the Gioia area is knowing a new spring, evolving continuously in thrilling and unexpected directions. The first blooming flower of this urban spring is Il Santa – Bistrò Moderno, a restaurant all glass walls and design that will definitely surprise you.

Il Santa Bistrò Moderno

Dinner is the time during which the Santa gives its best. In the first place with its location, which has dim lights and contemporary paintings which always change and rotate, giving a rare, very studied look to the interiors. The menu is a triumph of refinement, thanks to the precise culinary vision of executive chef Stefano Grandi. The chef is half from Veneto, half Sicilian and has a defined, audacious personality that you will easily recognize in the gastronomic features of his every dish.

Il Santa is ideal for a late breakfast, for a fast but classy lunch, for an happy hour with gourmet touches or for a sophisticated dinner full of unexpected flavors. During the evening, then, the place becomes a privileged, exclusive location for business dinners and private parties. Its sleek outlook full of international vibes, suspended between New York and Los Angeles, the creativity of its kitchen that oscillates between different backgrounds, and the quality of the service make of it an address to discover in the fine dining panorama of Milan.
