Another day, another outstanding Milano dining experience…or maybe it was just really great to get away from Swiss cuisine, either way, Terrazza Calabritto was an absolute standout. I wasn’t expecting it to be so mind-blowingly gorgeous or have such attentive, but non-intrusive service. This is the place you go where your partner proposes at home and the two of you go out to celebrate before calling your family and friends. It is so intimate, so special.
I mean, just look at this gorgeous decor! The low lighting, the clearly hand painting. Amazing.
The details on everything down to the olive oil bottle continued to paint the picture.
Curtains added a sense of intimacy, while the shrimp tempura amuse buche was easy and fun.
My starter of proscuitto-wrapped scallops was a modern-art masterpiece.
The main of a sea bass cooked in salt crust was just as lovely in its light tomato broth. The waiter shared I was safe to eat the skin as it was cooked through, which was a nice touch, but still…no, thanks.
For dessert, I always have to go with the citrus thang, so I ordered the house made sgroppino, which I only learned of after a quick Google on the spot. It’s house made lemon sorbet, vodka, and prosecco. The waitress looked surprised at my order and as her english wasn’t up with her colleagues she gave him a quick nod and he explained what it was. I said that sounded delicious. They chucked, I think, expecting a reject and a re-order of something else. It was absolutely delightful. Right choice for sure.
Wow, wow, wow. Terrazza Calabritto blew me away! What a great feeling to have such a lovely dining experience. I would have returned another night on my trip, but they were closed the subsequent two nights, unfortunately for me. Make this stop on your next trip to Milano.
