In the Sempione area, a few steps from the worldly area of the Arco della Pace, you can find La Taverna della Trisa, an excellent retreat from the stress of the city where you can taste the most delicious dishes of the typical Trentino cuisine, accompanied by fragrant local wines and grappa with herbs. The location occupies the ground floor of a Milanese building with a small outdoor space exploited in the warmer seasons, when flowers, plants and aromas add colors and scents typical of an atmosphere that is anything but urban.
The interior rooms follow the color palette of the mountain places, where the green moss is the protagonist, especially regarding the plainly-colored walls that, thanks to the dominant use of wood for the seats, the fixtures and the sideboards, suggest idea of a quiet wooded place. Unmistakable and absolutely in sync with the image of the local paintings with natural subjects, such as wild animals and mountain landscapes.
The attention to detail and the desire to remain a point of reference for customers looking for “good taste even at the table” led La Trisa to choose simplicity even in the preparation of the mise-en-place, characterized by white tablecloths and small abat-jours with a retro touch.
The culinary proposals are modified according to the ingredients and the times of the year, following the evolution of a seasonal menu that allows you to taste the aromas and colors of a Trentino vegetable garden, the game of its forests and the fish of its lakes. Little tip: if you love fish do not miss one of the traditional dishes of Trisa, the pess su la caldéra, which will allow you to enjoy the best of the typical fish cooked with mountain aromas. The desserts, taken from the tradition of the historical regional cuisine, are accompanied by caramelized fruit and grappa prepared with special blends of flowers and herbs.
An ideal place for those seeking the pleasures of homemade mountain cuisine without forgetting the attention to detail, in which to rediscover the warm and welcoming atmosphere of a region full of extremely varied and tasty products, flavors and aromas. An alpine retreat a few steps from Milan’s nightlife, where you can rediscover the pleasure of sitting down at the table and sharing a special moment with those you love.
