Berberè, a pizzeria that already exist in cities such as Florence and Bologna, has recently opened in Milan too, in one of our favourite districts: Isola. Here everything is about pizza, starting from a perfect dough and contonuing with prime seasonal ingredients. Here is how the pizzas are at Berberè and how much they will cost you!
The menu at Berberè is very essential, it includes about fifteen different pizzas divided into the red ones (Le Rosse), with a tomato base, and the white ones (Le Bianche), with a fiordilatte base. The traditional flavours are revisited in a modern gourmet way, with the addition of particular ingredients such as Salina capers, Mora Romagnola sausages, broccoli and Roman Pecorino cheese. We tried two pizzas, one with baked pumpkin, mushrooms and parmisan flakes and a vegan pizza with red beetroot cream, sautéed leeks and Taggiasca olives. The dough was also different from what we are used to and the pizzas were very light, soon we understood why: at Berberè they use sour dough in the classic or wholewheat option!
Berberè can easily be reached by public transport, being located at a stone’s through from the lillac metro stop Isola. Or you can get there by car, keeping in mind that it might take a while for finding a parking spot.
With its green tables, that recall the 60’s schools, the atmosphere at Berberè is simple and cozy. The wooden oven where the pizza masters work is an open plan one, and once you pass it you can reach your table at one of the two eating rooms. The place is quite spacious, always very crowded (especially for dinner) and a little bit noisy.
Despite the fact that Milan has been recording some (unjustified) steep prices for pizzerias, the bill here is pretty reasonable: 15 euros for a pizza and a drink! Furthermore, almost unbelievably given the latest trend in the city, here you can reserve a table! Looking forward to trying it?
