The Small, a Milano ... la sensazione è di cenare in un film di Ozpetek!


Finalmente un week end a Milano! 
Certo, non mi lamento di essere sempre in giro ma....un tranquillo fine settimana con gli amici, senza dover inseguire un treno o un aereo....non ha prezzo!!!! :)
The Small volevo provarlo già da un pò! Ci sono stata venerdì sera con Mister X e con gli amici giusti...insomma, quelli che avrebbero adorato la cucina e l'atmosfera di questo piccolissimo e particolarissimo ristorante. 
Particolare è dir poco! La sensazione è di essere proiettati in un film di Ferzan Ozpetek!
The Small è piccolissimo (da qui, credo, il nome), in 19mq avrà si e no 16 posti ed è conosciutissimo, per cui bisogna prenotare con largo anticipo e al telefono preparatevi a scambiare due piacevolissime chiacchiere con Ale, il proprietario (gestisce questo piccolo bistrot assieme a Giancarlo). 
Arrivati al ristorante, la prima cosa che colpisce è una gigantografia di Anna Wintour, (la direttrice editoriale di Vogue America...insomma, quella da cui trae spunto il film "Il Diavolo veste Prada") con capello stile giaguaro e orecchie!!! Il tutto abbinato a vecchi e deliziosi piatti e teiere, bei bicchieri, tazze, vecchie tazzine, specchi vintage e .... sculture di teste di maiale! Che dire, surreale ma bello!!! Davvero! 
E soprattutto, non so perchè, ma la sensazione era di essere in un film di Ozpetek!  
Bella l'atmosfera, piacevole la compagnia, chiacchieri con Ale (diminutivo di Alessandro)  e Giancarlo e se vuoi scambi due parole con i tavoli accanto, sorseggiando ottimo vino. 
Cucina casalinga molto buona: bruschette con burrata, la pappa al pomodoro toscana, risotto con l'ossobuco, risotto ai frutti di mare e le polpette al sugo!!!! Si, quelle della nonna! Buone!
Fantastici anche i dolci, rigorosamente preparati in casa! 
Ale sostiene che la sua cucina "mette di buon umore" e devo dire che ha ragione ma non è solo la cucina, ripeto, è piacevole anche l'atmosfera che si respira....da tornarci presto!

A weekend in Milan! Oh how happy I am !!!
Of course, I'm not complaining to  be  always  a wanderer.... but a quiet weekend with friends, without having to chase taxes, trains  and  planes .... priceless!! :)
I wanted to try  "The Small"  since a  long time and  I was there at last on  Friday night with Mister X and with the right friends ... in other words, those who would have loved the food and the atmosphere of this small and very special restaurant.
Yes…It is really particular ! You feel as being  thrown into a film by Ferzan Ozpetek!
Everything starts with the booking! The Small is really small (hence, I think,  its  name), and they can have no more than 16 people in a 19mq  area  and what is surprising is that it is well-known, so you need to book far in advance and be prepared to exchange a  pleasant phone conversation with Ale, the owner (he runs this small bistro together with Giancarlo).

Got to the restaurant, the first thing that strikes you is a giant poster of Anna Wintour (the editorial director of American Vogue ... in short, the one  it  draws inspiration from  the movie "The Devil Wears Prada") with jaguar  hair style and  ears! ! All combined with old and delicious dishes and teapots, beautiful glasses, cups, old cups, mirrors and vintage .... sculptures of pig heads! What can I say, surrealist but nice! Really!
And above all, you  do not know why but your feeling  is of being in a movie Ozpetek!
Nice atmosphere, good company, chats  with Ale (actually Alessandro) and Giancarlo and if you want you can also  exchange a few words with the people at the tables next to you…. while sipping wine.
Very good home cooking: bruschetta with burrata, the Tuscan tomato soup, risotto with osso buco,  seafood  risotto  and meatballs in tomato sauce!! Yes, as the ones made by my grandmother! Good enough!!  And to end  also fantastic desserts, homemade!
Ale says his cuisine "put people in a good mood," and I must say that he is right but it is not only the kitchen, I repeat, it  is also the  very  pleasant atmosphere .... to go back soon!

  1. Ma quindi ora sono più grandi? Non lo sapevo. Temo che possa perdere il suo fascino

    1. Si sono un pò più grandi ma non molto di più!
      E lo stile è rimasto lo lo sono fatta ASSICURARE da Ale l'ultima volta che sono stata a pranzo! HO visto i lavori...non ci sono ancora andata ma...mi fido! ;)
