Rua means road and comes alive in the beating heart of new Milan and the Isola neighborhood, between futuristic skyscrapers and old historic buildings, where the past and the origins mingle with the growing city. Our road is full of stories, of life, of passions, which are told through our dishes. A culinary journey that marks simplicity as the highest form of sophistication. Our cuisine is rooted in the Italian tradition and reinterpreted thanking to a constant research for balance, composed by ingredients, scents, colours, travels and experiences. A road we walk along, living and cooking, so that our dishes can offer not only flavours, but also emotions.
