Typical Milanese dishes like ossobuco, trippa, cotoletta alla milanese, etc. All done in a really casual atmosphere and with really competitive prices, especially at lunchtime. I had a really great stinco di maiale (pig calf) there last week.

An odd but absolutely attractive place, that perfectly manages to ironically combine the Italian 70s and today's mundanity, with a little poetry given by its name.
Dishes are tasty, generous but not too much juicy. If you're a group of hungry friends it's the right place for you!

Located further out from Milano touristic district, this trattoria offers a lovely real Italian ambience. Having lunch surrounded by working people and families made one feel immersed in the average Italian life. The food are quite simple and cheap. Ranging from €4 to €8. Opted for risotto giallo becaue the ossobucco risotto was sold out, spaghetti al ragu maiale, insalata and bistecca. Overall taste is ok, but not outstanding. Do not expect a 5 star service and food here. However, the experience to see the real Italian life is worth it.

The place is quite humble and the waiters are not of a classy team, but the food is good, the atmosphere relaxing and it is really cheap. I enjoyed it and certainly will come back.

Excellent homemade trattoria fare at unbelievable prices: this is what drives lots of residents, employees and students in the area to eat here very often. Service is basic but not all staff is as gruffly as they would like to appear. Learning the names of your servers might earn you a bit more attention, but do not worry if this is not the case, and enjoy your fish involtini "alla Pedro" and your polpette. If they like you enough they might even allow you to buy food to take away.
