Lievito Madre al Duomo
Da non perdere
This pizzeria is located about halfway between the Duomo and San Babila metropolitana
stops in Milan.
They do not take reservations; you have to wait for your name to be called from a list, although normally not very long.
The dining areas are spartan, but modern and clean, yet without much space between the tables. There is pleasant background music.

” DOP products are used, such as San Marzano tomatoes and many others which are sourced from organic farms, such as the extra-virgin olive oil.
The wood-fired oven was “built according to antique tradition: specific bricks from Sorrento were crafted by specialized artisans who have handed down their craft for generations
