5 gourmet pizza places to discover Milan


Via Sebenico 21
+39 02 3670 7820

Housed in the historic Circolo Filippo Sassetti, which was founded in 1911 as a building cooperative, this place has deliberately maintained the appearance of a Milanese restaurant of the forties or fifties. The pizza dough is made from semiwholemeal organic flour. Here pizzas are served cut into slices, so you can share.

Lievito Madre Al Duomo

Largo Corsia dei Servi 11
(Corso Vittorio Emanuele)
Duomo-San Babila

They don’t take reservations, so muster all your patience and, on cold winter days, try other places in the area, because they only bake 400 pizzas every evening. The restaurant is owned by Gino Sorbillo, who also operates the popular place on the waterfront in Naples. If you fail to get a table the first time, try again.

L'Antica Pizzeria da Michele

Piazza della Repubblica 27


+39 02 6671 1538


Another historic Neapolitan ‘brand’. They landed in Milan in early 2018, in the premises that were formerly occupied by Bastianich (Lidia’s son). Their four flavours – Marinara, Margherita, Neapolitan and Calzone – are excellent, as is their traditional fried Neapolitan pizza.


Via Torino 34 5vie-Ticinese +39 02 8645 3482
Pasquale Pometto opened his Piz in the alley leading to Cinema Centrale. Here you can eat a real Neapolitan pizza, in a noisy, boisterous setting, which is very different from the overly sophisticated restaurants of his competitors. No reservations possible. Try his interpretation of the ‘Marinara’.
