Don Antonio brings a corner of Naples to Milan, and does not disappoint

After sushi fusion and gourmet burgers, Milan has rediscovered its own Italian culture with the latest collective obsession: pizza. In recent years, among revisited and faithful dishes of tradition, many good pizzerias have landed in the city. Among these, directly from Materdei in Naples, Starita is a sure point of reference, led by Don Antonio, born and raised in this pizzeria business that for more than a century has been passed down through generations.

Starita - Milano

In the Arco della Pace area, the environment of the restaurant is open and informal, almost Spartan, but undoubtedly warm. The dominant theme is red, and the walls acquire character with elements of wood, stone and exposed brick, together with historical photos of the Naples restaurant. There is no room for misunderstanding. At Starita, what matters is the substance, certainly not the shape. The menu, a faithful replica from the Naples restaurant, offers traditional Neapolitan appetizers, classic and special pizzas, calzones, and for those with big enough appetites, desserts.

Among the pizzas, the margherita is always a staple, and the Starita marinara is some of the best around, with a sprinkling of pecorino cheese to support its strong taste. The pizzas are well cooked and the freshness and selection of ingredients is clear. You also can’t miss out on the fried foods. The montanara with ricotta is legendary, but even the courgette flowers will make you lose it. Our stomachs couldn’t make it to dessert… but the fried pizza dough covered in Nutella seems undeniably delicious.

The service is quick, efficient and friendly. Of course, the exceptional Starita is no secret to anyone, and on the weekend waiting for a table can be overwhelming. Don’t be discouraged, because it’s absolutely worth it. If you’re having trouble, try going for lunch or during the week. Good pizza, as well as people who know how to bring it with honor in Italy and in the world, is a classic that does not disappoint.

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

Cocciuto – Porta Romana

Via Passeroni 2, 20135 Milano

Cocciuto made its remarkable entrance last autumn 2018 in Via Bergognone, with the ambition to continue to raise the bar in Milan. Michela Reginato and Paolo Piacentini (former founder of Marghe) wanted to perfectly combine excellent Neapolitan pizzas (but not only) with an urban chic context. Stubborn in name and in design: obstinate in wanting to attract customers with [...]
