Hi! We are two professional cooks (one of us is a barman too!) and we love hosting at our home restaurant, Picà dell'Isola, , an historical, typical Milanese building, called “casa di ringhiera” in the Isola district. We live in the middle of this Art Nouveau neighborhood and it’s amazing bars and clubs, like Blue Note. We'd be glad to show you these amazing streets and our courtyards, to shop together at the Saturday marketsand to cook a traditional, 100% organic, Italian meal for you. We only use products originating from farms around the city. Taste with us the real Milano! *** Hola! Somos dos cocineros profesionales (uno barman a la vez) y amamos abrir las puertas de nuestra típica casa di ringhiera - departamento histórico milanés - ubicada en el barrio Isola, el nuevo centro moderno de la ciudad, conocido por sus edificios Art Noveau y sus fascinantes bars & clubs como el Blue Note. Nos encontramos precisamente en una casa que cuenta la historia y el futuro de esta ciudad italiana y que os regalará una prospectiva interesante. Os deleitaremos con platos típicos preparados en el momento, con materias primas de alta calidad, y con carnes y verduras de origen orgánico obtenidas de los campos lombardos. *** Nous sommes deux chefs cuisiniers professionnels (et un barman!) qui aiment ouvrir les portes de notre maison typiquement milanaise à nos clients, au centre du quartier Isola, le nouveau centre moderne de la ville. Nous nous trouvons de fait dans une maison qui raconte l'histoire passée de cette ville et l'avenir de l'Italie et qui vous donnera une perspective intéressante : nous continuons à raconter mais avec des plats à base de matières premières de grande qualité, de la viande et des légumes biologiques à 100% achetés dans les fermes de Lombardie, pour vous faire découvrir les véritables saveurs de la cuisine italienne en partageant une soirée de plaisir et de conversation. *** Siamo due cuochi professionisti (e un barman!) e amiamo aprire agli ospiti le porte della nostra tipica casa di ringhiera - uno storico edificio milanese - al centro del quartiere Isola, il nuovo centro moderno della città.

Fantastic experience with Chiara and Gigio. Made our visit to Milan even better. Sampled some of their take on Milanese dishes that we had never tried before. Tasty starter of focaccia with ham, cheese and salad leaves, lovely. The main Ossobucco. , Veal with risotto rice. Again, the taste was amazing, and the wine, Bandolina, was lovely , matched the food so well. The desert was home made peach granache tarts, these were just right. So a great meal, everyone enjoyed the food and company. Chiara and Gigio made us so welcome in their city and we would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for something a bit different to the norm in Milan

Chiara and Gigio were phenomenal hosts and we were so glad that we booked a meal with them. We chose to do this the first day of our trip to Milan and not only was it a delicious introduction into Milanese cuisine, but they were also invaluable in their suggestions for what to check out for the rest of our trip. I would absolutely recommend organizing a meal with these two!

We had a great experience in Chiara & Gigio's home. It was very homey and we felt like we got the true Italian experience. The food was great and my sister has made some of the items and they turned out great. We are looking for the recipe for the ravioli as we can't find it, so if you could send it we would appreciate it.

This was the highlight of our trip to Italy. We had a wonderful time at Chiara and Gigio's house learning to make lasagne and enjoying the results. They were excellent hosts, and made us feel like friends.

Our visit to Milan wouldn’t have been complete without a visit with Chiara and Gigio. Not only did we learn how to make our own pasta, delicious lasagne and the best tiramisu ever, but we gained two new Italian friends. They shared their home, their culture and experience with us and we all came our winners. It really is a small world too, as the more we shared our stories, we learned that my husband and Gigio are from the same country, same city, and same neighborhood! We had a wonderful evening and our time was over before we knew it. I highly recommend spending and evening with Chiara and Gigio for a wonderful Italian experience, plus the bonus of gaining two new friends!
