A brick wall with some photos on, paintings and mirrors, overstuffed and wooden chairs, a few tables with different shapes, warm lights and a big bar with a lot of spirits and liquors on.
This is “Iter”, a kind of second home hidden in a parallel street of the Naviglio Grande, here the Sunday’s lunch is “The Sunday at grandma’s”.
This month you can find Campania’s grandmother.
The menu, a recycled paper where you can sign on your choices (fitted combinations), offers pasta with Neapolitan ragu, maccheroni’s omelette, sausage and friarielli (a kind of Italian broccoli), Neapolitan “pastiera”, etc…
I wanted to try a little bit of everything.
The slow cooked ragu is the king of the menu.
Perfumed and juicy, it reminds old memories of a warm Christmas, makes a simple pasta the world’s best food, makes the meatballs softer and richest.
According to the traditions, all the dishes are so simple and authentic and is possible to have a second portion.
Their mixology’s knowledge gives you the possibility to have lunch not only with wine or soda, but also to choose one of their drinks dedicated to the principal Italian cities or to have a fresh “pomodoro condito”.
And finally Neapolitan “pastiera” or “caprese” cake, with some board games, like crossword, that the owners gives you not to forget the Italian family’s traditions.
What makes them different?
The friendly atmosphere, the mixology’s knowledge, their creativity.
When can I choose this place?
For the Sunday’s lunch, surely!
Each month will have a different grandma, like this all the off-site students, all the nostalgic or traditional people will find, even for a brief moment, a second home.
