Any of you that have been to Milan before, will know that finding authentic Italian food at a reasonable price is not an easy job. We stumbled across this restaurant as it was next door to our hotel and it was amazing! The staff were so friendly, the kind of staff that encourage you to stay a while and bring... More

We booked a table at 8:30 at "Il Tavolino" on a suggestion of my friend, who suggested this place to people staying at a hotel where he was working.... More

A short 15min walk from the central train station, just around the corner from the Four Points Sheraton, we walked into this restaurant because of the recommendation from the hotel. It was everything I hoped for and then some. We had several courses of seafood, pasta and meat, all really good. But the absolute star of the evening was the... More

I expected more for bianca pizza but still tasted good, despite a little water inside. Red pizza was much better and soup were OK. The interior is nice and cosy. Wide range of great wines

Il Tavolino was recommended to me by the Westin Palace and I was wowed all night long! Upon arriving on a cold rainy evening I was greeted with a glass of bubbles and led to a great table for one. The restaurant was busy all night. People watching was excellent. Filled with locals and travelers, which was great. What I... More

Quaint little place, nice and enjoyable but nothing special. Waiters didn't speak too much English or didn't really speak to us much. We order the Milan Milanese to start which was delicious. Then we both ordered the veal filet and a side of potatoes which wer both huge portions. Wish the water would have told us that so we could... More

I didn't have a fantastic impression of Milan, generally the people are ignorant, rude and unhelpful. Maybe they don't like the Irish. This is the only spot that I did not experience this attitude, hence why I ate here every night of my stay. Really friendly, polite and welcoming staff, together with fantastic food and wine make this place must... More

Neighbourhood 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.
