Inspirock Rating:
3.4/5 based on 1,900+ reviews on the web
Considered one of the city’s masterpieces of modern architecture, Bistrot Milano Centrale is served by high-speed and conventional train lines, with connections to most major European cities. Designed by architect Ulisse Stacchini, the station opened in 1931, replacing the old 19th-century transit station that could no longer handle the traffic caused by the opening of the Simplon tunnel in 1906. Today, over 300,000 passengers pass through the station every day, using about 500 daily trains. The station is connected to the city’s main airport through a convenient express train service. You can get any necessary supplies for your trip at the supermarket and a few smaller shops located on the western side of the station’s basement. Pickpockets loitering around the main station building are known to target tourists at night, so pay attention to your bags. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Milan holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Bistrot Milano Centrale and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Often forced into this reality "technology" on business, I still sadly to assess and observe the self-styled extended disorganisation and mess that makes fertile ground for pickpockets and drug dealers of all kinds and extradition social!

  • In recent years have made many changes to the station. Some great, some controversial. They created many places/non-places which are never nice places, especially at a gas station. However, in principle, I think it's been reorganized well.

  • The milano centrale station is intermodal, very functional. However it is unmissable as well for those who want to see architecture.

  • Food was not bad, not great, not cheap, but right there in the train station. Good place to wait for a train. Almost all the food is displayed if you need to see it to make up your mind. Paid about 15 euros for one fried appetizer, one sandwich, one glass of wine. Pay at the register first, then hand your ticket to the people by the food, who prepare your order.
  • We went there at 6am and they already had ready not only croissants, but focaccia, freshly made juices, nice tea. The atmosphere is cozy and trendy.
  • It's clean and nice. you have good view of inside the Central Station building, but no good brioche and no good cappuccino and not even good Caffè.
  • One of the quick meal/snack bars/fast foods/restaurants to have a meal in Milan's Central Station. This belongs to the Autogrilll chain. Good choice of food: pizzas/focaccias, sandwiches, warm main dishes, big salads. The downsize are the prices which largely accounts for my 3-star ranking.
  • Cute place, if you can elbow your way in.
