The menu was a little difficult to understand. We ordered salad, appetizers, pasta and veal. The pasta and appetizers were brought out at the same time and the veal was brought out about 30 minutes later. We thought they forgot the salad but it was brought out after the main course. The food was delicious. Loved the ravioli and also... More

It is not an empty boast that they have the best osso bucco in Milan. The saffron rice is fragrant and creamy, and cooked just right, and the meat is absolutely divine. They also serve wonderful desserts, especially the zabagione. Their other house specialty, the ravioli was also very good, as was the fusilli. Coupled with a good wine list,... More

next to antica trattoria della pesa this restaurant serves the same food in a just more casual location conveniently located close to the upcoming Garibaldi and Isola area. I'm not from the area but risotto , ossobuco and soup were really really good. Seen the restaurant scene in Milan it's not that easy to find such a good food with... More

If you want to taste real Milanese food that is absolutely amazing, this is your place. The apetizers you can choose from are excellent. The Milan risotto with osso bucco it absolutelly delicious. As for dessert if you take a sabaillon, you won't be disappointed. The decoration is typical Italian but with a plus. There aren't so many tables so... More

I was there last night and everything went perfectly well. Small restaurant with typical classy (not osteria) Italian atmosphere and elegant people attending the place. Food and wines are very good and well served. Traditional menu of northern Italian cuisine. Traditional well chosen italian wines from almost all Italy from north to south. I find it a bit too expensive,... More

We return to this restaurant every time we go to Milan (over 10 times). The kitchen is shared with the Antica Trattoria della Pesa next door, which is a popular restaurant with the local Milanese people. The menu changes with the seasons, so there is a lot of variety as well as many classic local Italian dishes. The food here... More

Neighborhood Profile
Stazione Centrale
Central Station represents a bridge towards the future. Impressive skyscrapers and new age buildings stretch the skyline with the majestic Unicredit Tower cutting through. Surrounding it are large towers that define Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the fountain and the Monumento Trombe leave one breathless. A famous building of the district is the Vertical Forest, where the innovative materials and trees planted on the terraces are a unique mix of nature and man-made construction. In the district, there is the Monumental Cemetery, known for its antique tombs with sculptures portraying angels of commemorative scenes many will find touching.
