Bottega 2.0 Panificio Davide Longoni

The scent of the warm bread, the brown paperbags, the chitchat of the baker or his white small hat… everything here is a throwback of the when we went out with our grandparents for the morning shopping. Welcome to Panificio Longoni!

Three reasons why we like Panificio Davide Longoni

  1. The green dehor
  2. The Disney-looking loaves
  3. The new concept of ‘bottega 2.0’

Close to the super-green Piazzale Libia, in the Porta Romana district, there’s a special bakery: very traditional in content and quality on a side, but on the other, very new in the concept. Here the owner, Davide Longoni, is trying to redefine the concept of bakery by making it an all-day spot: more than a simple shop, this ‘bottega 2.0’ has become a regular target for customers to unwind and hangout in company.

Here they serve the Panevino, the daily aperitivo that happily combines the fresh bakes with a good selection wines. Every dough is strictly based on stone-ground flour, and treated with natural leavening, a guarantee of high quality products, and highly digestible. The choice among the types of bread, stuffed focaccia and desserts is very wide, while the wine list is smaller (3 red wines, and 3 white wines, in rotation) and focuses on small producers, more inclined to “bio” products.

We take a seat in the small and comfy garden right next to the baker, and go for two glasses of strong reds: a Checcarello from Umbria and an ‘Origini’ from Piedmont. Aside, we pick some bites of pizza straight form the oven, each one stuffed with regional ingredients, carefully mixed.

Rumor has it that a new trend is becoming more and more popular in Milan: the millennials are discovering again that good quality makes it for a more healthy lifestyle. We are definitely on their side, and hope for more of these ventures! If you end up in Romana, take your time to stop by the Panificio for a well deserved Panevino.
