Italians love good food and take their time over it during their afternoon lunch. This is a good time to discuss important aspects of life such as family, art, films, food and wine. But even though Italians are fans of leisurely wining and dining, there are also some delicious quick bites to be had in Milan. You’ll be back exploring the city in no time having snacked on a delicious panini or panzerotti.
If you’ve already dined out Italian-style the previous evening – antipasti followed by pasta, a meat dish, a dessert and an espresso – then maybe a simple panini for lunch might be just what you need. In Milan, the tradition of spending hours over lunch has fallen by the wayside to a certain extent due to time pressures. An increasing number of shops and businesses are reluctant to close for hours on end and instead, their staff eat sandwiches and salads. But that doesn’t mean the Italian people have lost their taste for good food.
“Panzerotti Luini has been making deep-fried sandwiches since 1940.”
