Longtime cook serves up a taste of Milan in this relaxed Upper East Side restaurant. Editorial Rating: Not Rated In Short
Luca Marcato started culinary school in Milan at 16, and he's been cooking Italian food ever since. After working for the celebrated Tuscan restaurateur Pino Luongo, Marcato opened his own candlelit eatery and took control of the kitchen. Now customers nibble breadsticks in a small yellow-walled room and order mushroom risotto, lamb shank with polenta, and tiramisu. A Milan poster serves as a reminder of home, as does the prominent display of wine bottles.
This casual, upper east side, northern Italian restaurant offers a top notch menu that visits Milan and brings home something for everyone. Regulars of the restaurant say, "Come hungry" for a spread that is hard to resist.
