Slow food without pretention

We recently visited Milan on a trip to Italy. This restaurant was recommended to us as having "traditional Milanese" food. During our one-week trip to Italy we routinely had excellent meals; this restaurant was the sole exception. I ordered Porchetta and I was served a slab of fat. I am serious. It was at least 90% fat, with some gravy... More

Visited del treno with eight colleagues for dinner. Pleasant service with the waiter happy to translate and explain the menu. A fair choice of dishes for both non-vegetarian and vegetarian. The restaurant is near Central Station and if going in a large group, booking is recommended. All of us tried different dishes and we were all happy with the quality... More

I'have been several times in this restaurant that is really easy to be reached by foot from the train station. The food is really good. The "ossobuco" are tasty and absolutely a must. The only surprise last time was the appetizer "Misto milanese" that was a little bit under my expectation in terms of quantity. the selection of cheese is... More

We were recommended to come to this place by a local friend and are really glad we did. It looks unassuming and the decor is basic, but the food is great. It came to about €30 per head for our evening meal of 2 courses with wine, though not everyone had 2 courses. They didn;t open till 8 and were... More

This review is coming a bit late but am still going to write the review! The location is very nice as it was fairly close to the train station. It was a little bit hard to find at first - in fact the phone GPS was off by one block. We arrived and were waiting just before they opened and... More

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
