by Angelina Hazzouri

In a modern space dreamt up by renowned architect Piero Lissoni, Chef Filippo La Mantia brings attention to detail in his eponymous restaurant with the philosophy of creating unique emotions from the culture of tasting Sicilian-inspired food. With a variety of dishes for any time of the day, the restaurant offers a cafeteria with different dishes to try, buffet-style lunch, Sicilian pastries, and an a la carte menu for dinner. 

In this upscale bistrot, you’ll find creative dishes that remain traditional to the art of Sicilian cuisine. Without the use of garlic or onion, La Mantia creates a wide variety of flavorful dishes that bring unique culture to the Milan restaurant scene. He replaces these ingredients with soffritto, an intense citrus-fruit pesto that will leave your taste buds lingering for more.

In addition to regular reservations, the restaurant also offers VIP rooms, perfect for hosting special private dinners with family, friends, clients, or colleagues.
