The best things remain

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.


Osteria La Carbonella has been part of the historic heart of Milan since 1978.
Despite its many imitators,
Osteria La Carbonella remains
one of a kind.

Italy. Country of saints, poets and sailors.
We’ve got our very own Santo (Santo means ‘saint’ in Italian!): the owner. While Alessandro tries to be something of a poet and sailor, by telling us about the country and its delicacies.
