The magic of an environment
Three halls with a fireplace and summer gardens on Vicolo dei Lavandai
Our love for the place
ElBrellin Restaurant faces over the Naviglio Grande and picturesque Vicolo dei Lavandai where the washerwomen used to go with their buckets and lower their knees onto the wooden “brellin”to scrub their customers’ clothing on stone “brelle” Next to the old wash house sits the old shop where the washer women would purchase their warm water, brushes and soap.
The building where the old drugstore was located was operated by Maria Bambina until the 1950s and now it is home to “ElBrellin” Cafè which has maintained the atmosphere of the place and that time alive.
The Restaurant is on two floors with in a house from the 1700s with fireplaces and coffered ceilings that enhance the atmosphere. ElBrellin can host up to 200 guests and is perfect for candlelit dinners or splendid wedding receptions, company dinners or private get-togethers.
When the weather permits, lunch is served in the garden or at Cafè d’ElBrellin and in the Sale dell’Oca on the ground floor of the restaurant.
During the summer, we open the doors to the fabuolous garden on Vicolo Lavandai which can host up to 40 guests.
Cafè d’ElBrellin is located in the same building as the Restaurant with direct access from Alzaia Naviglio Grande. With the original woodwork, this characteristic restaurant is a perfect place for fun informal lunches, rich evening aperitifs and lovely after dinner outings.
