Giacomo Arengario

Milan
Anhelo
In the very heart of Milan, next to the Palazo Reale and the Piazza del Duomo, stands the Museo del Novecento (“Museum of the 20th Century”). On its top floor, the Giacomo Restaurant has become a favorite place for local art and fashion crowds and tourists alike after a visit to the Museum or shopping in the city.

Giacomo is a contemporary brand of Milan restaurateurs who also run a bistro, a pasticceria and a nearby café under this name, while “Arengario” means “town hall” - the original name of the building hosting the museum was Palazzo dell’Arengario.

The design is a clear tribute to Art Deco, from the proportions, lighting and decorative panels to a massive Deco chandelier that makes an impressive centerpiece.

The choice of coffee at Giacomo Arengario is exquisite - the Anhelo blend of Naples suits the stylish surroundings while going hand in hand with the period, as this roaster set to recreate a traditional neapolitan espresso taste of the 1930’s. 

The bar at Giacomo Arengario is spectacular, and the “piéce de resistance” for a coffee lover here is the fully manual coffee machine. It requires additional training but with the right skill applied to the levers, the espresso at Giacomo Arengario is exceptional. Of no surprise at all, it has scored 3 out of “3 coffee beans” in the Gambero Rosso Bar d’Italia guide (2014).
