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.

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.
