Gne Gne


Strolling around Navigli wondering where to go for dinner ? Wishing something special but you definitely need a break from Italian food ? Well … among hundreds of options in this lively area, the first criteria would be choosing a ”bark friendly” place, as travelling DOGether means a 24/7 “inseparability policy”; for sure your furry mate would not love to be “abandoned” all alone in the hotel room (and it would not actually be nice of you…).

If you fancy the idea of tasting many different kinds of tapas (small plates), then GneGnè Restaurant, which serves Spanish food, could be a nice surprise. It’s a newly opened restaurant where the staff is truly friendly, warm and professional. They explain each dish of the menu with “maniacal” detail and give you some useful tips and suggestions to make the best choice, to “experiment” different kind of Spanish tapas without getting too full. The portions are pretty small but rich in taste, you will appreciate the “gusto” of Spanish cuisine mixed with a bit of “Italian touch”. From the selection of crocchette (croquettes), patatas bravas (spanish fries), cipirones (fried squids), pulpo de roca (octopus), to the fish tapas like bacalau (raw codfish), atun alla planca (grilled tuna) and gambas al ajillo (garlic shrimps), not to mention the real Patanegra (Spanish ham) and chorizo (Spanish Salami) which will probably “seduce” your 4-legged friend, driving him mad as a Tasmanian Devil. Apart from tapas you will also have the chance of ordering Paella (the typical Spanish rice dish), with a choice of meat, fish or vegetables. Typical ”Cervezas” (Spanish beers) are available in different choice or if you prefer to “kill” a bottle of Cava (the competitor of Prosecco), they also serve a nice selections of white, red and sparkling wine. Mandatory to finish the dinner with the crema catalana dessert.

This is a restaurant with two souls. The first one is more like the typical “tapas bar”, a kind of “easy” area with a long table and seats facing the windows. The second one is more “conventional” though the space from a table to the other is actually pretty narrow, so you do really need to pay attention to your furry friend and make sure he will respect your “neighbors boundary”. However if you are a social person who likes to do some “blablabla”, this place gets you to talk to other people very easily, probably with your furry friend as a “PR” it would be even easier. And now … have a nice tapas experience DOGether!
