Osteria del Treno is a ‘circolo’ or club. In Italian society, a circolo is a local spot to meet friends, play cards and discuss current affairs over an aperitivo or a bite to eat. This one, it seems, had its genesis with railway workers but is now a restaurant that specialises in local food – ‘zero kilometri’ if that can be believed.
And eat we did: papardelle with vegetables and a taleggio cream, roast baby chicken stuffed with sausage and served with apple, onion and plum sauce, snails in tomato sauce and a plate of mixed cheeses: goat with juniper in olive oil, piquant and sweet cows’ cheeses, washed rind cheese, pecorino and a blue buffalo milk cheese, with fig mostarda and chestnut honey. Every cheese had its maker named and located. It was a great experience for foodies in an interesting and authentic setting.

We discovered this restaurant in a tourist guide and we were so pleased that we came back the next dinner. The place is not so interesting in itself, except pictures of old Milan and trains but the meals are original, tasty and cheap, as well as wines. I should have stayed a whole week because I wanted to try everything. A good choice for veggies too

Off the beaten track near Central Station, this place is just so incredibly GOOD. Everything on this menu is excellent. I've been here twice and leave smiling. The stuffed chicken (haan/rooster) is just eye-ball rolling delicious. The ragout pasta is sumptious. The desserts finalize the entire meal to perfect satisfaction. Our waiter was charming, patient and gave great advice. Will see them next year too!!!

Great place, classic italian. Great food, and nice surroundings. For Milano think it's good value a well.

A good, simple lunch service at a very reasonable price, as described by many others here.

Dessert turned out to be mass-produced, extremely sweet, sticky and unpleasant in texture: poor enough to spoil the whole experience.

Do go and enjoy lunch, keep in mind to leave while you are ahead.
