I visited on the recommendation of a friend who lives in Milano. He said it was a very typical and authentic restaurant, and La Cantinetta did not disappoint. The service was excellent, though I'm sure it helped that one member of our party also lives in Milano and is a native speaker. They do, however, have menus in English, if... More

If you like steak prepared very rare you are in for a treat. They believe it should be cooked that way so they don't even ask you how you want it cooked . The potatoes were delicious . I had my first taste of chicory... slighty bitter but still nice. The gnocchi had a nice tomato sauce. We went to... More

When it came back out of the kitchen, it was almost cooked to rare- still not where we wanted it. When we asked for it to be... More

Well in this place you go for either costata fiorentina or tagliata di manzo. The first is themTuscany version of a t-bone steak. The original uses Chianina beef. The tagliata is tinly sliced grilled beef with rocket salad or porcini mushrooms. Both dishes is their specialty and they really know how to grill it. As side dishes you might want... More

We were looking to conclude our trip to Milano with a great bistecca. Found La Cantinetta here on Trip Advisor. Called for a reservation and it was a good thing. The place was packed at 9:30pm. We started with a small antipasto of grilled vegetables. Onions, zucchini, and peppers- what a nice start. We followed with homemade papardelle with pesto... More

I have been to this restaurant several times, last time a couple of weeks ago. They have in my opinion the best "tagliata" in Milano, unlike most other places this is not simply a sliced roasted beef but more exactly a sliced Fiorentina (T-Bone steak); besides this the selection of dishes on the menu is at very good level and...
