Ronchi 78

A testimony to Milan’s history

Tucked away in the backstreets of Via Torino in the heart of Milan’s historic centre, Ronchi is the perfect place to sample a mix of traditional Italian fare.

First opened in 1869 by the Ronchi family as Italy’s first wine bar, it soon became the most important ‘after- theatre’ venue in Milan. Today, it is an elegant tavern featuring exposed brick walling.

Milan is the home of the aperitivo and it is most definitely a ritual which no visitor should forego. Start the evening with a fashionable cocktail, wine or spumante, followed by a sumptuous dinner and end it in style and enjoy live music that goes on into the wee small hours.
