Giulio Pane e Ojo
Via Ludovico Muratori, 10, Milan; Tel.: 02-5456189
This cheerful trattoria provides a welcome touch of Roman casualness in the center of all-business Milan. At lunchtime the place is packed with locals who come here for the quick, friendly service and the good-value, fixed price menu. Dishes might butterfly pasta with fresh artichokes and herb-spiced lamb served with roast potatoes. Things are less chaotic in the evening when the restaurant has two sittings, however, don't be surprised if you're asked to vacate your table by a certain hour.
