Nice little bar and restaurant a few kilometers behind the castle. Service was quite friendly, but the decor was a bit lackluster (in my tastes, of course). The large food menu provided ample sustenance, and the pizzas we got did the job. Their 6 taps tend to focus on the Lambrate products (which is not a problem at all!), but they do have Birrificio Italiano beers from time to time. What can be fun too is that they sell the Baladin Xyauyu by the glass (the 30 E Lode version as well, when they have it), so you don’t have to splurge for an entire bottle if you want to sample it once more. It’s not carbonated, so they can do this quite efficiently. Overall, a fun place for lunch and a few quality Italian micros (they have Bi-Du as well, sometimes).
Easy to reach by Metro off the Zara station.
Good little enighborhood bar.
Was able to find some hidden gems, among them 3 Black Barrels beers.
Saw only 6 taps with the typical local Lambrate but also some great offerings from smaller Italian craft brewers. Also a small but good bottle selection.
Food was decent for a pub type grub. Bruschetta was tasty but my ravioli came out a bit dry-burned when the guy had apparently forgotten them in the oven.
Had a great time there chatting with the waiter or the other customers.
Friendly service, a fine range of Italian micros on tap and in bottles. Lots of ITalian micros at reasonable prices. Quiet jazz in the background, pasta dishes on the menu. Quiet on a Monday.
Menu with tasting notes on the beers (in Italian). Try to get to this if you are in Milan!
Nice local bar with a decidedly odd interior of dark wood and neon yellow walls. Decorated with photos of famous jazz musicians and hops. Serves food, but I didn’t even look at the menu. Beer selection is nearly all Italian micros, plus some German beers. Staff are very friendly and attentive, but their English is variable. Toilet is not good. Music is real jazz, and some rock. Noise is mostly from conversation, as they play at a sane sound level. While staff are friendly and knowledgeable, they have no control over the bill. Some waiters want you to pay right away, others do not. On a typical evening they’ll forget to charge you for one of your rounds, plus at some point they’ll bring you someone else’s change, and never collect it again. Very nice place, though, and highly recommended. Trams 3 and 4 go there from the centre.
