Let's play a little word association game for a minute. The first one is easy: Naples and pizza. I think almost anyone would say that is a no brainer. New York and pizza. Yes, of course that works. How about Milan and pizza. Hmm, most probably aren't buying it.
Well, that's what I thought until a Milanese friend took a friend and me to Le Specialità in Milan. This restaurant has been in business since 1977 and is located a short ten minute drive from the center of Milan.
The focus here, as they say on their website, is "quality ingredients, friendliness and hospitality." Those fresh ingredients help make some of the best crust I've ever eaten. Their artisan crust is perfectly prepared, served thin and light and with a nice amount of air bubbles around the rim of the pizza.
In my opinion, their best pizzas include the pizza margherita and pizza al salame. The food is affordable and the service is always good. A must-try for any future trips to Milan.
Here's a picture of their pizzas I pulled of the web.
This family-oriented restaurant has a simple and straight forward decor as you can see in the picture below (also pulled off the web).
