The poetry of fish: I Pesciolini Milan
Swordfish and crashed pistachio fish tartare, tuna tartare with ground capers, dried tomatoes and mustard grains, salmon tartare and Sicilian onion.
Octopus roasted with burrata cream, sea bass ceviche with Tropea onion. A main dish of amberjack nuggets on crushed pea cream with caramelized onions and baked orange slices.
Isn’t it a form of poetry?
You can find two I Pesciolini restaurants in Milan (one in porta Ticinese and the other in Porta Romana).
The format is a fish shop with fewer tables where you can enjoy a fish based meal sitting in front of the open space kitchen that allows you to follow the preparation of the dish from the beginning until the end.
The environment is warm, collected and well looked after.
The wine selection is excellent as well: we excellentely paired our dishes with an Enta Bianco from Benanti winery.
At “pesciolini” we were pampered by the professionalism of Ivan, host landed directly in Milan from New York and able to tell the story of the fish you have in the plate.
The idea of this restaurant was born from a group of young guys with the desire to bring the taste of the best fish directly to Milan. All products are made in Italy and foreign specialties are chosen based on very high standards.
Prices?! Absolutely proportionate to the quality of the fish!
These guys surely get up early in the morning and go to the fish market in Milan with the objective to transmit poetry in their dishes.
This place is a must!

Adventurous, crazy, funny, affected by wanderlust syndrome. Paris made it happen, now they love getting lost in the world and laugh.
