Sincerely, one of my best experience in food! Great food, great ambiance, great wine. The "Bisteca Fiorentina" is Magic! The "Risoto Milanes" is amazing.

Over 30 of us booked for dinner and the restaurant produced platters of meat, cheese and tomato salad followed by steak, asparagus risotto, grilled vegetables and potato crisps. All were delicious with the steak and risotto particularly good Would definitely pay a return visit

The meal started with homemade warm breads that were beyond divine. We had a unique artichoke salad followed by seafood that was simple but delicious. My only regret as we left was that I had not had dessert as the dessert table was dream worthy. I will definitely return if my travels bring me back to Milan.

This is a great restaurant with a large menu to choose from. The food was great and I had the best spaghetti carbonara I've ever had there! Lots of options and lots of pizzas to choose from too, spoilt for choice. Desserts are lovely too. The waiters were friendly and it had a real family atmosphere. The decor was lovely... More

Like other reviewers we were recommended to Ai Giardini by a local hotel. It's a perfectly fine restaurant. Its not cheap but for central Milan it's not too expensive. The service was prompt and pleasant. There is a wide menu, (we thoroughly enjoyed the antipasto, the meat courses were good but sadly the truffle ice cream was not to my... More

Reasonable priced dishes for launch, excellent service and the pizzas are super! Ask the waiters for the day dishes they are super polite and will recommend honestly, I love their "Paprika & Cannella" pizza as well Pasta with seafood.

Even in Milan, you can find restaurants with good service. Giardini Paprika does not belong to that little circle. Very Slow service, unfriendly from the beginning to the end. They even substituted orders, they went out of ingredients without asking or at least communicating they served different beverages. Facit I wouldn't go there again.

We went there because of the reviews but is nothing special . They have dishes with truffles but I consider that if I want to eat something special with truffles I go in Alba or Asti . They are short in staff so the waiting time is long . I had the impression that the usual clients were treated different... More

We return to this restaurant every time we are in Milano because of the wonderful, authentic yet modern menu selections, fantastic service and relaxing ambiance. One side is a casual pizzeria where we can easily bring our young child for a relaxed lunch or dinner out - we always meet other families just like us who are there for a... 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.
