It is off the beaten path and you might therefore be the only non-Italian in the place. You might also be the only one who speaks English.... BUT so worth it!! Absolutely the best Fiorentina in Milano. The family that owns and has ran La Cantinetta forever are super nice and so is all the staff. If you have any... More

We went there just to have a Fiorentina. It was juicy, cooked to medium-rare perfection and delicious. Accompanied by a Brunello di Montalcino and side vegetables it was a perfect meal. Booking recommended as it's very popular. The place looks rustic but it's the real deal.

The very simple and outdated design may fool you, but it is the food you should come here for. We had some fantastic "bistecca fiorentina", prepared over the open fire, and felt a little bit like on the Tuscan countryside. Delicious!

I must admit this was a huge surprice, one of the best places we have eaten. I have tried many places, Noma in Cooenhagen, Bucco in Berlin, Kong in Paris, Balthazar in Ny, but this was autentic Italien. All costumers were local Italien, no tourist. Good price Amazing food and the best service in Italy.

Inside the restaurant is quite big, I think it has been extended various times. It looks like the place is run by a family, mother behind the cashregister, father in the kitchen and the sons serving. The menu is only available in Italian, with a specialisation in meat, grilled on charcoal. I started with bruschetta which was delicious and Had... More

If you want to have a real "fiorentina" and u do not want to drive till Florence, this is the place for you. Have it along with a Chianti Classico and potato as side. Great value for money.

Very nice place, not long from the centre of Milan (by tram), directly at the tram stop. Great wines for reasonable prices, same with the food. Very very good steak - Fiorentina, for 2 persons. Excellent meat. Very nice service. Acceptable prices. They accept credit cards. Better to have the reservation.

I visited on the recommendation of a friend who lives in Milano. He said it was a very typical and authentic restaurant, and La Cantinetta did not disappoint. The service was excellent, though I'm sure it helped that one member of our party also lives in Milano and is a native speaker. They do, however, have menus in English, if... More

If you like steak prepared very rare you are in for a treat. They believe it should be cooked that way so they don't even ask you how you want it cooked . The potatoes were delicious . I had my first taste of chicory... slighty bitter but still nice. The gnocchi had a nice tomato sauce. We went to... More
