With all the new restaurants opening in Milan it is so refreshing to find one with great food and genuinely lovely people. The brand new bakery and bistrot Crosta, a five minute walk from Porta Venezia is one of them.
Whether you're looking for a freshly made croissant, a beautiful loaf of lievito madre bread or an excellent pizza with topping that vary weekly, Crosta is a must.
I highly recommend visiting it on a lunch break and trying one of their pizzas 'alla pala' - I had the one with stracciatella and prosciutto crudo. What is excellent is that the pizza dough is extremely light and easy to digest, meaning you won't be left with an 'abbiocco' and can happily get on with your day.
