This is a place which is always crowded in the Centrale train station and for good reason. It offers a large variety of food for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. There is great variety of choices from bakery to pasta, pitta, fish, meats, sandwiches and dolci. The quality is very good overall, especially for the venue and location.

We were surprised to find healthier vegan options here, it was absolutely delicious and filling. We tried the salad and pasta, both were delicious. The set also comes with potato chips and a bun on the side.

I got sandwiches for the train. They were delicous. They have also tables so you can get your food and eat it there.

It had to be a '5' for this exceptional café. With what seemed like half of Europe passing through at the same time, food, refreshments and service were exceptional. Marvellous and all of it with a smile.

Certainly the best option at the main railway station. They have good sandwiches and at the end different Italian specialities.

We travel through Milano Centrale station about once a week. We usually stop at McDonald's for breakfast just because it is familiar. This bistrot is located on the Burger King level and is hidden in plain site. It looks like a chocolate/candy shop, but it actually is a large ristorante that has a great selection of food and a very... More

We got back quite late from Verona and were famished. So we walked in to this lovely place. We tried the "happy hour" option with homemade chips and focaccia. Had lots of items to choose from. Sandwiches, pasta, desserts. Unusually good food for a train station restaurant. Plenty of seating space. We also tried the strawberry tiramisu which was superb.... More

There are lots of good tratorias in Milan, but this one at the Stazione Centrale, on the first level in front of the tracks, is a bargain. Sandwishes, salads, hot plates, pizza, fruits, bread, pastry, desserts and great coffee.

Bistrot Centrale is in train station. Good food for train station. There are several stations so can take a little time to get meal. It is busy at times. It was when we arrived so I got a table and sat there while husband got food.

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.
