From the outside, Milan’s Pisacco looks like any other contemporary Italian bistro, with light green chairs and minimal decor. But request a table on the second floor, and it’s a whole different scene. Pisacco is the baby of an eclectic group of individuals (including star chef Andrea Berton), and it’s upstairs that you can really feel the avant-garde vibe they hope to exude. Wooden floors and tables provide a neutral backdrop for the riot of color provided by the red chairs and giant mural. Designed by artist Gabriella Ciancimino, this whimsical piece of art takes up a whole wall, and features a mohawk-ed punk and a gorgeous poppy, among other doodles, as well as a giant neon ‘X.’ Pieces from other artists also grace the upstairs, providing even more of a funky, group show kind of atmosphere. So it looks real good, but what about the food? The ever-changing menu is full of classic, fresh Italian fare, with healthy and inventive twists. xx Ashley Churchill
