The Small is, as its name states, a small restaurant off Corso Buenos Aires, in Via Niccolò Paganini. Small, but only in size, because the experience is very rich, refined and chic. Alessandro Lo Piccolo and Giancarlo Petriglia are the owners and masterminds behind this concept restaurant.
This lovely bistro is continuously evolving (and actually also growing), with new collections of homeware, art pieces and interior decoration. The dècor was studied and signed by Giancarlo, who is a fashion designer with a run with Trussardi, and an eye for interior design.
Alessandro takes care of the day-to-day management, setting the tables, working behind the scenes and cooking simples Italian dishes – tartare, chick-pea soup, risotto alla milanese, just to name a few.
Funny fact – The Small refers to Alessandro’s last name translated, and not to the size of the restaurant! Anyway, it is a place to try if and when you are in Milano.
