Porta Nuova Restaurants
Latteria San Marco
Via S. Marco, 24, Porta Nuova
An eight-table restaurant in Porta Nuova, Latteria San Marco is a casual locals' spot to dig into fresh caprese salads, polenta with porcini, octopus risotto, and carafes of the house red wine.
Antica Trattoria della Pesa
Viale Pasubio, 10, Porta Nuova
Since 1880, Antica Trattoria della Pesa has served regional classics like osso bucco, riso al salto, and a rich, saffron-infused risotto alla Milanese. But the other reason to come here is the setting. Full of antique furniture, paintings, and decorative plates, the atmosphere gives off such an old-world, nineteenth-century vibe that you’ll forget what century it is.
Via Lazzaro Palazzi, 19, Porta Nuova
Near the Milano Centrale train station, Il Carpaccio is one of those simple, no-frills trattorias that serve deeply satisfying plates of prosciutto with melon, white truffle risotto, and seafood soups. There are also plentiful veggie options, our favorite being the puntarelle (aka chicory, a super bitter green vegetable stalk) dressed with the best-quality olive oil and Parmesan, as well as asparagus and porcini.
Piazza 25 Aprile, Porta Nuova
If you can score a terrace table here, you’re in for one of the most romantic evenings in Milan, with a view overlooking the Piazza XXV Aprile (especially fetching at sunset).
