Old-fashioned decor with long wooden tables and delicious pizzas offset the ear-splitting din made by dozens of yappy locals sitting side-by-side in what amounts to a glorified echo chamber. What makes Premiata particularly appealing in Milan’s early-to-bed context are the hours. It’s one of the few central places (Navigli) that’s open late — although don’t expect anything but pizza after 10:30 p.m.
Seating is a free-for-all, service about the same, and prices low. The pizza variety worth the madness. Favorites: “Prosciuto e arugula” (raw ham and rocket), “Viennese” (tomato, mozzarella, sausage), “Messicana” (tomato, mozzarella, white beans, peppers, oregano, hot sausage, “Pesto” (mozzarella and pesto sauce) and “Tirolese” (mozzarella, fontina cheese from valdostana, Belgian salad, and speck). Bottled beers include Beck’s, Bud, Ceres and Corona.
If pizza isn’t your wish, there are the usual pastas and meat course to choose from, as well as salads and cheese or salumi platters made for two.
Expect lines. At least they bring you wine while you’re waiting. A pizza meal runs about €20-25 per person. You can also book a paella by calling two days ahead.
