Nando Milano Trattoria Restaurant Review

: When you step inside this unassuming storefront on a raucous stretch of Division Street, you’ll probably be welcomed by the maître d’ offering an enthusiastic “Buona sera!” Oversize arancini --- satisfyingly crisp and gooey --- in a trio of flavors are a signature appetizer. Pair them with a light Barbaresco from the small and exclusively Italian wine list. The extensive pasta menu is the highlight. Try the ravioli packed with lobster and crab or the hearty lasagna Bolognese stuffed with beef ragoût. Pillowy gnocchi della nonna bursting with lush Gorgonzola swim in garlicky tomato cream sauce. For a bright counterpart to all the carbs, order the raw trumpet mushrooms and summer truffle arugula salad. End the evening with a coppa of tiramisu and a house-made limoncello digestif. Service is genuinely warm.
