Cirioletta, the roman-style sandwich

For the first time in Milan, a crispy golden crust with a lovely soft filling in the best Lazio tradition. An “envelope” of genuine and wholesome bread, easy to eat and a delicious way to mop up sauce!

Milan's Cirioletta is David Ranucci's new adventure – the sixth restaurant to have been opened by this natural born host. Whether the name refers to the amber colour of a freshly-lit candle, amazingly similar to the golden crust of the bread, or to the way young sleek eels swim in curves, David Ranucci's Cirioletta is his madeleine, his heart-warming comfort food.

Peasant food that tastes of history, that has survived wars, the memory of his beloved grandfather Giulio, his family's forefather and the main inspiration in his career.

“I remember spending my summer holidays in a country house as a child. Every day I would wait anxiously for the arrival of the three-wheeler filled with “ciriolette”. It is still my favourite snack.”

FORMAT

A simple and welcoming location that makes you feel at home. There are indoor tables for a quick bite, wooden stools for connoisseurs who fancy sitting at the bar and a comfortable outdoor area that seats up to 15 people, where guests can enjoy a longer stay. The magical atmosphere is created by the wholesome smell of bread, typical of bakeries. The oval-shaped and fragrant ciriolette are a real treat and a rarity in the Milanese area. They can be filled with traditional Roman delicacies on the spot and in full view.

PRODUCT

The ciriole are freshly made and supplied daily by a Milanese bakery, which makes them according to an old and secret recipe. All the products aim to promote central Italy’s food culture, especially that of Lazio, Tuscany and Umbria. The short supply chain and the constant research and selection of small local producers guarantee the freshness and the uniqueness of our offer. Be it a plentiful snack or an informal lunch break, the cirioletta is the ideal sandwich for wholesome and straight-forward fillings, providing those“once upon a time” kind of tastes Roman grandfathers still cherish as a source of immediate satisfaction.

THE ROMAN HOST

He began his career at the age of 24 in a Roman restaurant, moving on to run the most important locations in the Capital City. About twenty years ago he decided to move to Milan and open his first restaurant, Giulio Pane e Ojo, in via Lodovico Muratori 10, which soon becomes the most renowned Roman Osteria in town.

Then he opened Casa Tua and Abbottega, both in Via Muratori and next to each other, so that the location is now known as the host’s square.  But the story doesn’t end there, David Ranucci accumulated new experiences in Montecarlo, New York and Miami, where he opened (some years ago) a successful restaurant called Baiocco – Osteria del Pesce. Besides being a great entrepeneur in the world of restaurants, he dedicates some of his time to writing  cookery books as an expression of his passion and knowledge: “100 Years as inn-keeper” and “Roman cuisine doesn’t exist (but everybody eats it)”. It is his children Matteo and Claudia, together with his nephew Marco, who run these locations, bringing the warmth and beauty of their homeland to the North.
