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

Lovely place/decor with a good and multilingual waiter but with some notable flaws, namely: a) we had reservations but when we arrived they seemed confused and took us to one of the few tables without a name on it; to the left and right of us were better tables with names and times of reservation. b) the mains followed the...

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

Took my parents here for dinner during their visit to Milan. Everything was just perfect - the service, the cosy atmosphere inside and food (decent portions and very tasty!). Gnocchi with truffles was heavenly! Would definitely come back.

A poor restaurant will not survive in Milan without having some consistency. This restaurant has an active owner, present with the clientele and knows many as they are repeat customers. For choice is classic Milanese, with great variety. Service is excellent and food delivered quickly . Wine list is vast too. Great location for larger groups or business meetings. Have... More

Got this a bit wrong. Saw good recent reviews but not older ones. Got last table. Packed and atmospheric although football on tv. Had big plate of antipasti in bar before. Had gnocchi truffles but filling and then could not eat much of enormous steak off rib €70 for 2. Bill €160.

One of the quintessential Milan restaurants with excellent Italian cuisine, charming and experienced service, very happy atmosphere and good value for your money. The gnocchi had to be the best I ever had. It is on my list of places to return on my next trip.

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.

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.
