Last but not the least – Zima Restaurant.

Literally meaning “Winter” Zima won’t make you feel cold at all. Most probably you will get the opposite effect from the home made vodka and freshly cooked traditional dishes.

We highly recommend to try pickles made at the restaurant or “okroshka” – russian summer soup. To be honest you can try anything you want, it will all taste great.

The most famous italian bar in England

The Bar Italia was founded in the winter of 1949 by Lou and Caterina Polledri. The couple was originally from Piacenza and already have opened another café in Covent Garden a few years earlier.

Right from the beginning Bar Italia has become extremely popular and act as a fantastic social centre for the Italian community.

The design of Bar Italia was state of art for that period. It has been renovated 3 times, however the Polledri family tried to keep every detail and leave the bar looking very similar to the first day of the opening.

The red and white formica is an important part of the Bar. Original pieces remain from 1949. The Gaggia coffee machine, for example, has been there for 60 years now.

Nowadays Bar Italia is a legendary place in London. You can have a cup of morning espresso along with Rupert Everett, an old friend of the Bar or any other celebrity. This is a really special bar that connects all types of people while enjoying the cup of real italian coffee.

Martin Freeman

In November 2010, it was announced that Dave Stewart and Ian La Frenais were writing a stage musical about the cafe which will be called Bar Italia. Stewart was quoted as saying, “This coffee shop is very small but what goes on in there is as big as the world.”

 

What makes it so special?

“It’s not just the wonderful coffee, the warm greeting or the atmosphere. There is something unique. Coffee making Is a ritual handed down over the centuries. Here you feel the history and when you order a coffee in Bar Italia you are participating in the millions of rituals that have taken place there over the years. So perhaps that’s why it is like no other coffee bar because here you become part of that timeless institution that is Bar Italia.”

London vs Milan  

London vs Milan: thinking about relocating to the “City of the Big Smoke” or to the “Drinkable City”? There are lots of similarities, pros and cons, and many more aspects….

London vs Milan: thinking about relocating to the “City of the Big Smoke” or to the “Drinkable City”?

There are lots of similarities, pros and cons, and many more aspects. However, the final choice is yours.

First, let’s talk about similarities of these two cities.

Milan and London are very similar cities. Due to their part in the long history and common ancestry. Milan stretches within the Lombardy region and was founded several centuries before the Common Era, and London only a few decades into the Common Era, but a combination of geography and educational and financial opportunities made both cities the cultural, industrial and financial hubs of their respective countries.

London with its massive urban area is the second city in the EU, while Milan ranks fifth.

Both Milan and London have their history as a financial and commercial centre dating back to the middle ages. After the Risorgimento (Italian unification) in the late 1800’s, Milan was the industrial lender of the new nation.

The two cities are home to the countries’ main stock exchanges and headquarters for the largest banks. Large national and multinational companies have chosen to locate their headquarters in both Milan and London.

And of course, we should not forget about fashion legacy of these two capitals, one official and one proclaimed.

Both cities are highly notable in the world of fashion and design, Milan is clearly the leader in both categories. The who’s who of international fashion, including Valentino, Gucci, Versace, Prada, Armani and Dolce & Gabbana, are all headquartered in Milan. Milan’s semi-annual Fashion Week is one of the most important events in international fashion.

London vs Milan: Now it is time of comparison!

Coffee:

Anyone who has ever visited Italy will probably tell you that the coffee is better in the fashion capital of the world. The truth is, London’s coffee isn’t too bad, but you have to know where to find it.

In Italy, it’s possible to have a good quality espresso anywhere in town and be charged no more than €1, while in London it costs at least 70 cents more.

 

Making time for meals and rest:

In Italy, timing is important, and it must always be respected.

People have lunch around 1 p.m. They have diner in the evening. Mornings and afternoons are for work. The night is for fun and rest.

While in London office workers are most likely to grab a sandwich or smoothie on the go, in Italy you take time to have a slow lunch followed by a must “un caffé”

 

Cazzeggio

Italians are masters at killing time, which has a code name – cazzeggio.

In any bar at any time of day, you will find a couple sharing a glass of wine or a quick espresso not really worrying about the expired lunch time or any other duties of the working day.

 

Bureaucracy

Working in Italy can be a nightmare. All because of the famous bureaucracy system which is very, very complicated. This is of course assuming you’re working for an Italian company. Working in an international company will be much better as it will insulate you from some of the bureaucracy and probably encourage a US/UK style of business over an Italian one.

So there you have it, now it’s time to make a choice: whether you want to drink spritz enjoying the view of Duomo or admiring the almighty Big Ben, sitting on the board of the red bus.
