Milan resident Beatrice "Bice" Ruggeri opened her first neighborhood trattoria in 1926. It was a family affair, with Bice preparing hearty dishes in the kitchen while her brothers and sisters waited on guests in the dining room. In the 87 years since the first plate of pasta was placed on the table, Bice Ristorante has spread around the world, buoyed by the visions of Bice's sons, Remo and Roberto. There are now dozens of locations across Europe, South America, Asia, the United States, and the moon.
