Can you recommend a great restaurant in central Milan for a group business dinner?
Hello! I will be in Milan with a group of 15 colleagues for just one night in late April before heading north for a 3-day conference. We will be staying near the central train station. I am looking to take the group to a fantastic Italian restaurant and, ideally, a private room for our party. The maximum we could spend would be about $100 per person including wine/drinks. We are looking for excellent local cuisine and an atmosphere that is more lively/relaxed than formal. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
As well as obviously getting direct Chow advice, here are the 10 restaurants in my 2011 Slow Food Osterie guide (in Italian). I haven't been to any of them but it's a great guide and they might be good leads to follow: Aquabella (Via San Rocco, 11); Al Bacco (Via Marcona, 1); Bottiglieria da Pino (Via Cerva, 14); Da Mirta (Piazza San Materno, 12); Emialana Tortellini (Via Ariberto, 17); L'Osteria del Treno (Via San Gregorio, 46-48); Martin Pescatore (Via Friuli, 46); Osteria Alla Grande (Via del Forze Armate, 405); Osteria Grand Hotel (Via Ascanio Sforza, 75); Ponte Rosso (Ripa di Porta Ticinese, 23); Tagiura (Via Tagiura, 5); Trattoria del Pescatore (Via Vannucci, 5).
