Corvo Torvo: Treat yourself to a tipple at Navigli’s hidden gem

Navigli. It has great bars and restaurants, but those come at the cost of fighting through both locals and tourists while crawling at a snail’s pace down the main canal. But here’s a little secret: Navigli has a second canal which is less popular but just as cool. It’s here that you’ll find Corvo Torvo, a vintage style bar that feels like a parlor room from the 1920s.

Upholstered sofas and comfy armchairs welcome guests inside. Old music plays from the speakers. It’s the kind of place to makes you want to sip a bourbon and smoke a cigar. Of course, the wine is good too – and only costs €5.

There’s no up-charge if you arrive during aperitivo time. It’s a classier version of your typical buffet spread, arriving on an individual platter consisting of bruschetta, flatbreads, olives, and thinly sliced meats.

Corvo Torvo is a strong cry from many of the characterless spots in Navigli, many of which are too crowded to relax. So when you’re in the area, treat yourself to a drink at this laid-back and utterly charming spot.
