Fodor's Expert Review U Barba

$ Porta Romana Northern Italian

Simple, fresh, authentic Ligurian specialties (in that region's dialect the name means "the uncle") will take you back to lazy summer days on the Italian Riviera—even during Milan's wet winter weather. Such coastal classics as trofie al pesto (an egg-free pasta served with pesto) and bagnun di acciughe (anchovy soup), coupled with a basket of warm focaccia, reign supreme in this favorite of Milan's fashion crowd. It overlooks a lively bocce court.
