The new trend of pizza-sharing at Briscola – Pizza Society is doubling up in Milan with the opening of a new location on Via Piero della Francesca, a few hundred meters from Chinatown. The name Briscola comes from the card game because here the main ideas are conviviality and sharing. Of course pizza is always at the center (here you can find other pizzas we tried in Milan). Could we miss out on the opportunity to try this new concept? Absolutely not! Read on to find out more about our experience!
If you’re tempted by the idea of being able to choose more than one pizza raise your hand! We definitely love it, and that’s why we like this pizzeria based on the concept of pizza-sharing. But let’s take a step back. At Briscola there are two types of pizza to choose from. If you are the kind of person who is protective of your pizza, then the pizza profile is for you, and will allow you to garnish a classic pizza with your favourite toppings. If you too are among those who like to taste a little bit of everything on the table, then the pizza sharing is for you: mini pizzas will be served in pairs on special trays to you and your fellow dinners.
There are so many tastes (20, depending on the season) and all are very appetizing: from classics such as the Rustica (tomato, mozzarella, potatoes and sausage of Norcia) or the Tropea (tomato, mozzarella, red onion and tuna) to specials, such as the Zucca (mozzarella, sausage of Norcia, pumpkin cream and shaved pecorino cheese) or the Pere (mozzarella, gorgonzola, pear and walnut). We fell in love with the Fico, served with mozzarella, prosciutto and figs. Delicious!
The dough is light thanks to a resting period of at least 24 hours, and is prepared with wheat flour that comes from healthy grains of first choice with no added substances.
Briscola – Pizza Society is located both in the Cinque Giornate area on via Fogazzaro, and in the Sempione area on via Piero della Francesca. To get to the first location with public transport you can take tram 9 or 16 and get off at the Viale Monte Nero – Via Bergamo stop, whereas the second location can be reached with the various buses and trams that run Corso Sempione, such as trams 1 or 19, or by taking the metro and getting off at Gerusalemme (purple metro line). However, our advice is not to miss a stroll through Chinatown! And thanks to the delivery service, lazier people can comfortably enjoy Briscola Pizza on their couch!
Both locations are furnished in a minimalist style, with marble tables and black and white walls on which the Briscola philosophy is printed in large letters. It is the ideal place to spend an enjoyable evening with friends thanks to the young and metropolitan atmosphere.
The base cost for a classic pizza is 7 euros, to which you can add some ingredients that vary between one and two euros each, while the two small pizzas together are 10 euros. By adding a soft drink, the cost shouldn’t exceed 15 euros, unless you are tempted by a sweet pizza which costs 5 euros! So, are you ready to share?
