TRATTORIA BERTAMÈ

Garage or trattoria? I doesn’t matter: Bertamè is both! This restaurant in Milan is an old school Italian garage (“officina”) that includes a classic motor inspired restaurant offering a very friendly service in a very original and different environment.

The place serves lunch and dinner 7 days a week with a cool (or annoying, depending on the point of view) peculiarity: the lunch menu changes every single day. This means that if you’re an office worker in the area (that’s their main customer base for lunch) you might be in for a different treat each time you visit. Well, I went to try to place for dinner so I could pick from their usual menu, which includes a fair amount of options spanning from seafood to meats and vegetarian delights. They also have an extensive list of wines like any respectable trattoria should have. I personally had an amazing aubergine (eggplant) with buffalo mozzarella pie and a scottona beef tartare starters, followed by ravioli with cheese and a beautiful white/dark chocolate Juventus (yes!!!) dessert: I was so happy with the choices I made, especially the starters, which were the real sh*t: I;m talking about a perfectly balance mix of flavours and Italian passion! The decor just screams vintage motors and that genius garage tool board filled with kitchen tools really made me laugh with pleasure.
