Description: A short walk from Central Station and the best hotels in Milan, Typical Milanese Restaurant "La Cadrega" offers an ideal meeting place for brunches, lunches and meetings, as well as banquets and private dinners. The rural but elegant design of our restaurant, combined with refined dishes and more than 70 labels of wine available in the cellar can bring you in the ancient tradition of Milan: a place where you can find all the relax that you want to have, protected from the chaotic transformation of the city ​​of business.

“well run, authentic food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

After a while, you just know when a restaurant is real and when it is a little fake. As I was just having a very light supper after traveling for many hours, this review is based more on my observations than what I ate or had to drink. The service was spot on. Not hovering but there when needed. Absolutely no problem getting eye contact to ask for something. The M'aitre D or whatever title he would have was clearly consulting intelligently about the wine list, the food, today's specials etc. The other two staff were equally attentive. Although I wasn't eating much, I could look and I could smell. Looked good, smelled better. My own chicken with a Gorgonzola cream sauce was delicious (although I dislike the continental habit of wanting to pound every cut of meat into a cutlet ... please just leave it on the bone).
So ... this was one of the real restaurants, not flashy, not overly expensive, built for eating well.

Located a few blocks from Milano Centrale.

“Good food, good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

We had an early dinner for our family including young children following a recommendation from our concierge, and had a good time at the restaurant. The food was very nice, and the children tried lots of new things. Some great house specialities to try, and our waiter was very welcoming and friendly.

“Very good food, very good service, good ambience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013

We were staying at the Sheraton, Milano Centrale, on 10/31/13, and Antonella at the front desk suggested this restaurant, within a short walk from the hotel. We were very impressed by the place, very good ambience, very good service and excellent food. The manager and the waiter were very courteous. When the waiter, a loca young Italian boy, told us he wished to migrate to U S, we were surprised, because we found Milan is a great city especially for younsters. This restaurant is a bit pricey and the portions served were smaller compared to American standards. Yes, I will definitely go there again.

“excellent food, wine and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013

This place was recommended by our hotel as we prefer to eat earlier in the evening than most Italians. The restuarant is open from 11AM to midnight and we were treated like family. The food was well prepared and delicious and the wine recommended was delicious. I needed a recommendation as I dont know Italian wines well enough to make an informed choice.

This is not the cheapest place to eat in Milan but the experience of the first time there led to a second evening there with two days later with friends and this evening was better than the first. Great memories.
