Spontini more than 50 years in Milano

My last pizza in Milano was Spontini. Angela told me I would love it. The place opened in 1953 as a take away with a single product, family heirloom, four locations in Milan. The menu more simple impossible one pizza, serve by the slice not the full pie, two options a normal or a generous slice, same recipe as 1953, soft, thick, crunchy crust, wood oven, and the flavour of mozzarella, tomato, basil, and anchovies. Tell me what is not to love about this. 

The Place
During lunch they also have a lasagne, but I went for the pizza, the main protagonist the cheese, perfect melted mozzarella, and underneath beautiful tomato and basil sauce with scents of anchovies, I agree with them it’s almost a trademark and the ingredients are not secret, purely perfection. 

Trancio Abbondante
I love this pizzeria, believe me one generous slice is more than enough. 

Pizza reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Glasses” 

Jerry: Now let's cut the ball, sister! You think I don't know about you swapping spit with somebody yesterday on Columbus Avenue?
Amy: What are you talking about?
Jerry: Look, my friend saw you
Amy: Saw me? With who?
Jerry: You tell me
Amy: There's nothing to tell
Jerry: There isn't?
Amy: No
Jerry: Oh... All right... want to get some pizza?
Amy: I had a feeling this was to good to be true
Jerry: Why?
Amy: I knew there had to be another side to you
Jerry: No, no, there's no side!
Amy: There is a side, an ugly side
Jerry: No, no, no ugly side
