Who wants to eat traditional, local food in a very familiar, traditional atmosfere have to visit La Pobbia. I have been several times and the quality is always fantastic. Good vine list.

We were a fairly big group and the staff handled the service and maintained the food quality with excellence. The food experience was traditionally Italian and very well prepared. Great experience.

Very punctilious service, delivered in a traditional, but warm, atmosphere. Wouldn't advise going too early - somewhat deserted when we arrived at 7.45, but buzzing by 9.00. Two menus in one - a very local & authentic Milanese selection on one side - risotti & osso buco to the fore; & a more generalist Italian choice on the other -... More

Great Milanese food particularly the veal. Rissotto also excellent. Fantastic service. Try to get a seat facing the outdoor gardens....they are beautiful. About a 15 minute taxi ride from the Duomo. Well worth going

We were in Milan for a long weekend, and wanted to try out some Milanese regional food. The building is historic, with a pleasant atmosphere. Food was a 4, but service was a 5; we had a very charming waiter who recommended some wonderful regional dishes and wine. Reasonable tariff, and a very enjoyable evening.

We were taken to La Pobbia by a Milanese friend on a Monday night. The place was nearly empty when we arrived but started to fill up later on as the Milanese eat late. We had a table by the window overlooking the garden and the atmosphere was perfect. This is wonderful old fashioned service from experienced waiters who have... More

A friend of mine took me to this traditional milano restaurant. Classical meals, excellent rissotto. Good wines. A little expensive, but a good option to enjoy a relax atmosphere.

Traditional old style Itailan restaurant. Calm and distingished admosphere. High quality food and great wine list. Beautiful place for a romantic or pleasant business dinner. Not cheap but service and value are of a high level.

My wife and I ate there on a Tuesday night mid May. I was told the restaurant seats over 150, albeit in different dining areas, however that evening the restaurant was practically empty. It's location in the northern outskirts of Milan means it cannot be reached easily unless by car. Certainly the recession in this part of town was noticeable... More

I ate at La Pobbia by chance. It's situated outside from the core of Milan, but it's close to the tangenziale so it is very accesible. It's a very large restaurant but still feels cosy with a beautifully manicured garden at the back. We were greeted by the owner at the door and immediately felt welcomed. The waiters are very...
