While the ambience and decor of the restaurant are terrific and it seems to attract vast numbers of Milanese diners, we were mightily disappointed with the food and the service. Menus in English were not offered so it was a struggle to choose and we almost ended up ordering two main courses each. The food itself was not attractively served... More

This place was recommended by a friend and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. First of all it's a beautifully decorated restaurant that has a "magical" ambiance upon entering, with little lights everywhere, making it look like a christmas decoration. We were initially given a table that I didn't like, so I asked for a better one and we were transferred... More

Great meal with two children. Full restaurant within 20 mins of arriving. Superb waiter who was incredibly kind with language and help with our children. Food was without fault and as we had hoped for. So....very happy! Carpaccio, veal, carbonara. Chocolate mousse is dangerously good!! When asking for the bill though you need to remember to fill in the tip... More

The food is excellent, and the waiters to understand English ( but no English menus are available). The staff were also Very good with their recommendations even for "problematic" guests. Desserts are a nice surprise, served with glass jars of cookies and candy, very enjoyable even for adults.

Italian food at its best. My pasta course was beautiful and very tasty and my main course of veal Milanese was also great. Service was excellent and the early Christmas decorations have the restaurant a nice festive feel.

What makes this restaurant stand out is the ambience: the lighting, abundant bar and food/fruit on display shouts homeliness and classic comfort food. By 9 pm on a Friday this fairly large restaurant was packed with locals having a good time. The service was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Also, there are complimentary cold cuts at the start and jars of... More

I went there with my wife for a lovely dinner. We had the carpaccio, two different meats and two desserts which were all delicious. We asked the waiter to choose the wine and he chose a very good red wine which was 40€. I think he was a honest and smart guy because there was a wine list from 20€... More

Description
Not just a restaurant, but La Briciola !.
Refined and elegant, polite and courteous welcome, excellent Mediterranean cuisine and respect for tradition, wine cellar with the best national and international labels, attentive service and not least an atmosphere in keeping with the evening here is what turns the Crumb in an exclusive club where it just feels like home.
A truly special place created very skilfully by Gianni, the landlord, almost 37 years ago and recently expanded with the bar area and a hall to accommodate in a radiant and cheerful its customers.

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.
