Everything with truffle, please! This wish is more than fulfilled at Tartufotto Savini Tartufi Milano. According to the company, the Tartufotto Milano restaurant was launched to offer Milanese customers the opportunity to enjoy delicious dishes with the diamond of the woods, truffles, all year round. The dishes offered at Tartufotto Savini are inspired by an old tavern in Montanelli in the province of Pisa in Tuscany. It was right there when truffles were first served as a dish. Whether with salad, meat, on pasta or with tiramisu, the meals offered at Tartufotto Savini in Milan, with optional truffle toppings, offer something for every taste. You can choose between Tartufo Nero, black truffle, and Tartufo Bianco, white truffle.
Reservations in advance are recommended, as the Tartufotto Milano restaurant doesn’t have too many seating options. Just over a dozen tables in addition to the counter by the window are offered. The interior is decorated in the colors of nature, in brown with green accents. It’s as if you’re sitting in Tuscany in the middle of the forest, enjoying excellent food. A brief immersion from the often noisy Milanese life, to enjoy and relax while the ancient streetcars pass in front of the glass front. A lunch or dinner at Tartufotto Savini in Milan can be absolutely enjoyed. Check out my blog post archive for more Restaurant Recommendations in Milan.
Vegetarian lunch with truffle in Milan
For a substantial lunch with truffles, I ordered both of my two dishes with truffles. If you want to try truffles for the first time, for example, you can also order only one dish with truffle, and others regular. As a first course, I chose the SPINACINO salad, baby spinach with almonds, pecorino cheese and pears (Insalata di spinacio baby con mandorle, pecorino e pere). The price for the salad is regular at 13 euros, with truffle at 23 euros.
For the main course, a classic, pasta with cheese sauce, or more precisely IL TAGLIOLINO. Tagliolini pasta from Caponi with white truffle butter and Parmesan cream (Tagliolino pastificio Caponi, burro al tartufo bianco e crema di Parmigiano Reggiano). Regularly priced at 15 euros a portion, as well as 25 euros including the truffle. And of course I ordered both dishes with truffle. And more than enjoyed both.
At the time of my visit, at noon, the restaurant was rather less busy during the week, so I had the full attention of the waitress and could be advised extensively in the selection of my white wine. As a sweet greeting from the kitchen, there were then some small bars of chocolate with truffles after my lunch, a real delicacy! I can absolutely recommend the truffle restaurant Tartufotto Savini in Milan, and will soon again enjoy delicious truffle dishes there.
