Just off the Naviglio Grande canal, Rita & Cocktails has been a point of reference for serious cocktail drinkers since it opened in 2002. The extensive menu, which is spiked with cocktail history, catalogues more than a decade of original inventions from the Rita team listed alongside cocktails inspired by other bars and bartenders. The place is popular from aperitivo hour (beginning at 6:30 p.m.) until late, and the crowds start to roll in early, so turn up at opening time for the best chance of finding a seat.
