In via Savona, right in the center of one of the most fashionable and creative districts of the city, stands Trattoria Aurora, a historic Milanese address that has preserved the Liberty charm of all its years of activity. The bright green sign recalls attention, but doesn’t allow you to see what surprise will host those who decide to cross the threshold. In fact, pushed the heavy entrance door, you will be transported in an atmosphere of other times where elements of furniture, curtains, floors and ceilings tell of a city of the past in which the floral liberty style was the protagonist.
The large central hall echoes the Milanese architecture of the ’30s, recovering the spaces and original furnishings of the restaurant. Parquets in light and dark wood are combined with lampshades in opaque white fabric and mirrors pleasantly eroded over time. Large windows in wrought iron and wood paneling overlook the secret courtyard of the location that during the summer is used for lunches and dinners in a relaxing atmosphere, in the name of tranquility: old plaques of slogans and advertising features under the shadow of a pergola of wild vine that keeps the external space shaded and cool.
The cuisine is of traditional Piedmontese inspiration, with a hint of Lombard gastronomic history. Bread, pasta and desserts are rigorously prepared in the kitchen every day and accompanied by a careful selection of labels from the Trattoria Aurora winery.
The search for local products distinguishes the culinary offer of the restaurant that finds its gastronomic mission in serving fresh seasonal and regional products. The service will pamper you from the first to the last course, merit of the highly prepared (and very elegant) staff, ready to satisfy every curiosity and appetite.
If you are looking for a secret garden and a timeless location, enter Trattoria Aurora and enjoy, for the time of a meal, a unique atmosphere, immersed in the authentic Milanese liberty without dust, but with irresistible charm.
