When talking about pizza, one usually thinks about the pizza from Naples, but keeping in the Campania region, the one from the Cilento isn’t a joke either. You can thank Da Zero for bringing it to Milan, with their restaurant located right behind corso Magenta that serves up pizza with high quality ingredients. Here’s a look at our experience!
The menu is divided into classic pizzas and pizzas from the territory: in this category are some particular pizzas, like the “Margherotta” (San Marzano Dop tomatoes, fior di latte cheese from Agerola, nduja from Spilinga, goat cacioricotta from Cilento and basil), the “Tonno e Ammaccate” (with fior di latte from Agerola, tuna from Palinuro, onion from Montoro, olives from Salella and basil), and the “Collo e Patate” (with fior di latte from Agerola, salted potatoes with onion from Montoro, pork capicollo from Gioi and basil). On the menu are also different salami and cheese dishes, fried dishes like the crocchè from Cilento with soppressata from Gioi, caciocavallo and provola cheeses, and the salads.
We were tempted by a “Cilentana Sbagliata” with fior di latte from Agerola, cilentano sauce, goat cacioricotta and basil and by a “Primavera Cilentana”, with mozzarella in the mortella, fiori di zucca, datterino giallo tomatoes, menaica anchovies and basil.
Both are truly delicious and the quality of the ingredients can be tasted immediately, thanks to the dough made from a mix of flours, left to rest for a sufficient amount of time and therefore quite light.
Da Zero is located along via Bernardo Luini, a street right in the historic center, right behind corso Magenta. Given the area, finding parking won’t be easy, but don’t despair as the metro stop Cadorna on the red and green lines is located only a few hundred meters away, as are the tram (16) and bus (94) that stop nearby.
The atmosphere at this restaurant is set around the wonderful oven in sight, and is convivial and perfect to spend an informal evening in complete tranquility. Dark wood chairs and tables are balanced out by colourful posters on the walls with cute quotes about pizza.
The pizzas are priced starting at 7 euros for a margherita to 12,50 for more elaborate ones. To average it out, the cost of a meal here is around ten euros, and can go up to around fifteen if you also have a soft drink: a fair price for a high quality pizza!
