Zaini Milano

A go-to spot for a gourmet break at any time

Zaini is more than just chocolate of excellence, it is the oldest chocolate factory in Milan and its history is deeply intertwined with that of the city. Founded in 1913 by Luigi Zaini, passes the twentieth century year after year reflecting the mood of the times in its products and sweetening the hearts of its customers. Continuous search, attention to detail and packaging – a mirror-like reflection of its epoch each time – to this day has preserved the atmosphere of the beginnings intact, thanks to the care and dedication of the owners, today at its third generation.

Zaini Milano | Ingresso

So, in 2013 Luigi and Antonella Zaini for the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the chocolate factory and in honor of the founders, give birth to Zaini Milano as we know it today: a point of reference for a gourmand break at any time of the day, from breakfast to aperitif, where you can enjoy a cocktail list made exclusively by mixologist Flavio Angiolillo.

Zaini Milano | Aperitivo

An historic space between Corso Como and Gae Aulenti with the unique charm of those which, as time goes by, gain more beauty instead of losing it: a mix of past and present, in between tradition and innovation, perfectly represented in the choice of furnishings. High wooden shelves rise on the checkered floor, which immediately conjures up the idea of order, perfection. The same order you will find in the displayed products, a triumph of chocolate in all its possible forms and variations.

Zaini Milano | Cioccolato

A place to be explored carefully, appreciating the details, wanting to come back several times: for a coffee, alone, in a company, to chat with the waiters behind the counter as we used to do in the old times, or look for that perfect gift, whose value is directly proportional to the love put into choosing it. All the customers seem familiar, going back to the time when relationships were still a natural consequence of a personal, direct relationship. You want to have known this spot forever, a place that even on a bad day will give a warm welcome.

All this, together with the products offered – chocolates, praline, dragées, tavoletti and confetti of the finest quality, as well as the many refined and never-ending gift ideas – makes Zaini Milano a must visit for true connoisseurs.
