It was not the best restaurant in food terms that I visited in Milan, but, the attention and the way people tried to please was great. Food was good and the space is really Italian.

You visit La Carbonella only for the food, which is outstanding. Service is ok, atmosphere is zero. The Fiorentina is perfect.

It goes without saying that the best things remain. They don't need to change. Osteria La Carbonella has been situated in the historic heart of Milan, just a stone's throw from the Basilica of S. Ambrogio, since 1978. Try to imagine the most extraordinary meat in the city, so succulent and soft as to deserve over 30 years of passionate enthusiasm from its customers. It's be a true delight when you taste the exceptional, extra fresh ingredients, selected with care and attention. The pasta, risottos, cheese, cured meats, and the wines. And then the amazing homemade desserts. Imagine Santo Giazzi, the owner, something of an artist, a man with a passion for life, and the world. The first to have the idea for a simple and elegant grill in the centre of the dining hall. Try to imagine. And then come along to see for yourselves.
