Another memorable meal at La Terza Carbonaia, where I've enjoyed many good times with Milanese family and friends. This is an Italian grill, so plan to eat meat, hopefully in the Italian style...rare! If the season is right, the zucchini flowers are fabulous, and try to save room for the arrancia carmello, a unique orange dessert.
The front room is used for dinner, and the enclosed garden in the back is the best place for lucnh, which is really the main meal of the weekday. Pino always gives excellent service with a big smile. It's best if you speak or read italian, although the friendly staff will make your meal special even if, like me, you "don't speak languages" as my Milan cousins say.

The vegetables cooked in traditional way with a wonderful meat : it s a perfect Milanese way of life !! The garden is quiet and big so you can go and find a table whenever you want till 1.00 pm !

Traditional italian restaurant: best quality food, cooked in a simple healthy way. I definitely advice the meat and the vegetables. Also fried courgette flowers and starters are good!! Atmosphere is good for a group of friends or family that value the food more than decor.

Went midweek evening to a warm welcome. Shown to a spacious table in the garden area so was very good atmosphere.

We had all ordered the same - a selection of antipasti followed by their famous "Fiorentino".

Service was fast and efficient - almost too fast at times! The ham and melon was my favourite. Good quality ham like this is not often served. The aubergine fritters and simple thin crust pizza were superb.

The presentation of the fiorentino was stunning and cooked to perfection - very Italian and not for those who like well done!

Simply fabulous would return anytime!

We were wondering around in the rain, looking for a restaurant to have our last dinner in Milan.
We spotted the red awning at a distance. It was so dark, we couldn’t read the menu.
Cold and hungry we decided to chance it!
The first room was nice, but very warm. Then, there is the second room, which was a very large enclosed “outdoor” area, which they called giardino (garden), full of plants, heated and very comfortable!
There is a wood fire between the 2 rooms and a table with the most delicious antipasti we’ve had in Italy.
We chose the antipasti, filling our plates with meatballs, artichokes and grilled vegetables.
We also shared a steak for main course, which they very kindly presented in 2 plates, without been asked.
Hard to believe we were still in Milan with such friendly and professional service!
We had wine by the glass and bread was part of the cover charge.
We wondered what the giardino would look like when the vines above are all green and the flowers in bloom.
This is an ideal restaurant for a large gathering.
Just before we left, a group of about 100 very smartly dressed people arrived and the waiter told me they worked for one of the great French fashion houses.
This was a memorable way to say goodbye to Milan!
