Il Magazzino


Il Magazzino di Luca Cai, Piazza della Passera is an osteria tripperia near Santo Spirito. We went in for lunch today and had a nice time. From the name you can probably guess that tripe is definitely on the menu.

Mark had pasta chitarra with a lampredotto sauce (pasta that looked like they were cut by “guitar” strings with a tripe sauce) and lingue con carote (tongue with carrots in a nice clove sauce). I had crepes fiorentina (crepes stuffed with spinach and presented with a red sauce) and gauncia in agrodolce (beef cheeks in a honey garlic sauce). We split a vedure fritte (mixed fried veggies). We finished with a flaming crème brule and espresso. We ordered the house red wine but it sounds like we should have asked the advice of our waitress because we found out later she is quite knowledgeable.
