La Terza Carnonaia is an excellent local restaurant, catering mainly to the local population. That by itself is a good sign! The food was delicious and authentic, and service was very decent. A must-go for those seeking a genuine Milanese restaurant!

Next time I go in Milan will most definitely visit this place. When in Italy you want to try everything. Pizza, pasta, fried vegetables, carne..tutto! In this one I had everything. And I couldn't fault any of them. Starters 4 kinds of different pasta differently cooked. Then fried aubergine and courgettes and then meaaat! Rare (not my thing but still... More

Ask the host to decide for you. Excellent starters and delicious steak. Close your dinner with a sorbetto. Nice and kind staff.

Bistecca was fairly good and equally the fresh porchini as a side dish. Upon check out I realized that I was charged for 1 bistecca for 38 intead 36 euro ( as per the menu list) and for th porchini side dish for 18 euro !!! Despite the overall good quality, I left with a bitter taste... Sad, no???

I have visited this place three time and it is solidly consistent in its offering. The menu is limited but every single item on the menu is excellently delivered. No frills but great food. I can't imagine visiting Milan without eating here at least once.

Food is amazing but transparency on cost is terrible! The whole amount was brought on a simple piece of paper with no details, beware, we were not tourists but locals. We have asked for a detailed receipt but the owner gave unreasonable answer. Beware!

What a pleasure it's like being home away from home. Food is simple but in the best way you can imagine. No menu..... but expect the high level of Toscana food and wine. Excellent service, bit noisy Italian atmosphere in the garden section. if you live or visiting Milano don't mis this wonderful place

In the University area, a placempopular with students, locals and professionals alike, "la terza" offers you traditional food (vast menu) and good house wine for a very reasonable price. Friendly service, and a lovely veranda for the summer.

Amazing place to have good food with that characteristic Italian vibe! We went for the trio de prima to begin followed by the Fiorentina steak, told by a local it was the best in Milan.

Maybe Margaret Thatcher closed all the coal pits in England but fortunately forgot about this one in Italy. The tasty one. It looks like a factory. It seats (my own opinion) maybe 300 people at a time. And come to think of it, it is always full. There is no menu, or at least they did not bring one to... More
