Saffron Risotto

The beautiful 19th-century industrial building that houses Ratanà is not unlike the old man’s house in the movie “Up,” the only remaining historical construction in a neighborhood razed to the ground and completely rebuilt to become the futuristic Isola-Garibaldi project. The name of the restaurant is itself a tribute to the old times: Ratanà was the nickname of a half-priest, half-healer who cured the poor people of the quarter more than 100 years ago. Born and bred Milanese chef Cesare Battisti offers a modern take on Lombardy’s traditional recipes. The saffron risotto here is arguably the best the city has to offer. The creaminess (thanks to copious amounts of butter), coupled with the flawlessly cooked top-notch riso carnaroli by Riserva San Massimo, makes for textural perfection.
