Dining al fresca in Milan

On our last night in Milan we followed a Blue Guide recommendation and found ourselves enjoying a memorable meal in the intimate, lush and quiet garden "dining room" of La Brisa, which further proves the rule that an Italian storefront is rarely, if ever, the full story.

(Above and Left) La Brisa. Notice the layers of brick and plaster juxtaposed by the vigorous ivy, which surrounded the garden on 3 sides, creating a cool, verdant space.

My meal--homemade orecchiette with asparagus, squid, parsley, tossed in olive oil and bread crumbs.

Dave's meal--homemade cannelloni stuffed with herbed ricotta and topped with an eggplant puree and drizzled with pesto.

Would go back in a heartbeat.
