First impression of this place is not very good. The restaurant did not look like a great place but once the food arrived we where proved wrong. Tested a traditional ossobuco and it was great. The staff was friendly and we had an excellent time.

Osteria del Treno is a ‘circolo’ or club. In Italian society, a circolo is a local spot to meet friends, play cards and discuss current affairs over an aperitivo or a bite to eat. This one, it seems, had its genesis with railway workers but is now a restaurant that specialises in local food – ‘zero kilometri’ if that can... More

We discovered this restaurant in a tourist guide and we were so pleased that we came back the next dinner. The place is not so interesting in itself, except pictures of old Milan and trains but the meals are original, tasty and cheap, as well as wines. I should have stayed a whole week because I wanted to try everything.... More

Off the beaten track near Central Station, this place is just so incredibly GOOD. Everything on this menu is excellent. I've been here twice and leave smiling. The stuffed chicken (haan/rooster) is just eye-ball rolling delicious. The ragout pasta is sumptious. The desserts finalize the entire meal to perfect satisfaction. Our waiter was charming, patient and gave great advice. Will... More

A good, simple lunch service at a very reasonable price, as described by many others here. Dessert turned out to be mass-produced, extremely sweet, sticky and unpleasant in texture: poor enough to spoil the whole experience. Do go and enjoy lunch, keep in mind to leave while you are ahead.

After having discovered that this Osteria has in Gambero Rosso Milano 2014 three gamberi, and reading some of the reviews decided to go there for lunch. I don't mind cantine looking place or kitchens, but was really disappointed how this place got mentioning in the restaurant guide... We took a lentil soup, pasta with tuna ragout and something that looked... More

To be clear, I like this place, and have been here a number of times. For lunch it is a busy 'fastish' lunch place for the office worker in the neighbourhood. Worth visiting as it has a great lunch. However, it requires some understanding. Wait in line, pick up your food from the kitchen, go to the table and order... More

After the good reviews which I read on TA, I was disappointed with this place. The boiled beef cheeks turned out to be beef buttocks boiled with no flavor and served with different sauces. The pasta was forgettable too. I will not return.

This is the real Italian food. Simple but with great ingredients. Wine list is also extensive but not at all expensive. Many locals.
