Trippa is hands down the most exciting place to eat in Milan right now. Diego cut his teeth in some of Italy’s most prestigious Michelin-starred kitchens before finding his true calling with the opening of this unapologetically old school trattoria.
Here the menu changes daily, the wine flows like water (biodynamic, naturally) and the welcome is as warm and genuine as you’ll find anywhere in Italy. There’s a lot to love about this place but Diego’s seasonal, produce led cooking is the real star. He does the classics as well as anybody – better even – but like a young Venetian Fergus Henderson, it’s his love of oft overlooked ingredients and unfashionable cuts of meat that really set him apart.
