The restaurant Trattoria Giannino

A historic restaurant, running over for a century, from the classical elegance to the pleasant balance of light and dark tones with elements such as paintings, copper pots and bottles on the entire wall.

The kitchen offers a choice of classic regional dishes, plus some carefully chosen dishes.

The wine list focuses on central and northern part of the land, but does not forget south either. The restaurant is popular with celebrities and athletes and especially beloved by Milan players and executives.

We had dinner with our friend Marco Donna who is an Italian Bond book author.

Marco and Mika ate ossobucco like 007 did in this John Pearson’s book in Giannino. 

Ossobuco is a Milanese speciality of cross-cut veal shanks braised with vegetables, white wine and broth. It is often garnished with gremolata and traditionally served with risotto alla milanese.

Ossobuco or osso buco is Italian for “bone with a hole” (osso bone, buco hole), a reference to the marrow hole at the centre of the cross-cut veal shank

Marco is awesome and also our good friend. It was nice to meet him in wonderful Milan!

“Bond offered her dinner in one of the finest restaurants in Italy – Giannino, by Via Sciesa. They ate artichoke and osso buco alla milanese – and Bond spent a night with her. After grappa and gorgonzola it felt like a perfect ending for a perfect evening.”

John Pearson: “James Bond: The Authorized Biography of 007” (1973)
