Eggs also opens in Milan: from Trastevere to Brera

The date is now official: on March 8th, Eggs will inaugurate at 35 Via Solferino in Milan. The restaurant conceived by chef Barbara Agosti that has already revolutionized Trastevere’s dining scene with its egg-based menu, as its name suggests.

An ode to eggs, the restaurant with an egg-based menu opens in Milan on March 8th.

On Friday, March 8th, there will be a celebratory night starting from 6:30 PM, with free tastings of carbonara for everyone until the evening! Starting from Saturday, March 9th, Eggs will be regularly open. Reservations, both for lunch and dinner, including Sundays, can be made, starting from now, on the website, .

Seven years have passed since the opening in Rome, and the same partners have decided to expand to Milan, keeping the formula , which includes an original and gourmet egg-based menu, unchanged. Here too, the atmosphere will be warm and friendly. The choice is that of a location in Via Solferino, in the heart of Brera, a historic district of Milan. There will be 45 seats in the main dining area, plus 12 in the outdoor patio, and approximately 20 in the tasting cellar, downstairs, an interesting room for dinners and events.

The Eggs Milano menu and the chef

Eggs Milano will feature some new dishes, specifically designed for the occasion by chef Barbara Agosti, and a menu that will include the flagship dishes from the Roman location, from “Gioco dell’Ova” to “Strapazzo,” all the way to the “Carta delle carbonare.”

The Strapazzo, the revolutionary takeaway carbonara, in its classic, truffle, and ‘nduja versions, is one of the standout dishes, presented on Masterchef in 2019 as a guest by the chef. Since then, the carbonara da passeggio has become one of the restaurant’s most requested specialties, along with the fun and beloved ‘Gioco dell’Ova,‘ a choreographic tasting of six eggshells served in a typical cardboard package and filled with tastings of original pairings.

Other interesting egg-based proposals include:

The Magnum Pork, with pulled pork, sauerkraut, and sour cream, the Gioco del croccante, and the Maritozzo alla Vaccinara. Among the first courses, we highlight the Tonnarelli Cacio&Pepi with hen bottarga and the Pumpkin Velouté, with crispy hazelnuts and a 64-degree egg. Among the main courses, there’s the Chicken Lollipop and the Baccalà all’Amatriciana.

Desserts are not missing, here we find the artisanal Zum tiramisu, Zabaione, Carbodolce, Ovosodo, and Maritozum.

Tasting menu

There’s also a tasting menu – “Ba’, Viaggio intorno all’uovo“, – consisting of 9 courses: 5 appetizers, a taste of seasonal ravioli, a choice of carbonara, and to finish, a chicken lollipop, with a choice of dessert. We also have a selection of dishes, including pasta and bread, without gluten.

A lady chef in charge of the brigade

Barbara Agosti, the chef who has been leading the brigade at Eggs since its origin, grew up watching the women in her family cook. Even today, her cuisine is artisanal-inspired, the keyword being homemade, but always blending tradition with passion and expertise.

Chef Agosti's professional journey began in Novi Ligure, where she opened her first establishment: Brenta Rossa, a former farmhouse turned restaurant. She continued her career with some consultancy work at renowned establishments abroad (in the United States and Corsica), as well as in some Italian restaurants, such as the prestigious Palazzo Ducale in Genoa.

The turning point came in 2012 when Barbara arrived in Rome, met her partners, and created Zum, a pastry format entirely dedicated to tiramisu. Shortly after, she contributed to the founding of Eggs, the establishment that became a reference point for Romans, as well as for Italian and foreign tourists, and has been praised by the most important gastronomic guides: from Guida dell’Espresso to Guide du Routard, from Louis Vuitton City guide to Lonely Planet Roma, and several Japanese and German guides.

The Milanese restaurant

A large room realized with the support of architect Lula Ferrari opens with a cocktail counter topped by a bottle rack. Tables made of natural oak wood, resin floors, and a brushed raw concrete wall characterize the space. At the end of the room, there’s an antique Liberty showcase next to a small counter where guests can sit with a view of the kitchen.

The lower-floor room is perfect for dinners among friends, events, or tastings. It features a large communal table, a wall filled with bottles, and a vaulted ceiling made of bricks, ending with another Liberty showcase.

The Milanese restaurant, curated by architect Lula Ferrari, will be open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner, until midnight.
