28 Posti is situated on a quiet side street in the heart of the historic Navigli neighborhood. It's small, with seating for just 28 people, as you might have guessed from the name.

The interior, designed by architect Francesco Faccin, cleverly combines exposed, white-brick walls with lamps made of plastic bottles. All the furniture is also made of recycled materials that Faccin and his talented team have given a new lease on life.

Naturally, the heart and soul of 28 Posti is its food, which is prepared entirely from local and seasonal ingredients. Chef Marco Ambrosino's take on traditional Mediterranean cuisine is distinctive and fresh, featuring novel combinations of saltiness and sweetness, hot and cold. It's definitely not for everybody; you'll be surprised if you're expecting regular, old pasta. Even so, 28 Posti is well worth checking out.

We recommend: Octopus grilled figs with saffron sauce; Roasted sweetbreads, smoked fish roe, watercress; for dessert “As a sacher”: dark chocolate, apricots, ginger, almonds. For brunch, there's a separate menu with sandwiches, scrambled eggs, and omelets.
