The best Brazilian restaurant in town. A must to visit while you fancy a nice dinner. Expensive but worth every cents

Situated in Isola neighbourhood the restaurant makes you feel in Brazil. From the stylish environment to the 100% Brazilian waiters with whom you can have a nice chat on Brazil and its culture. The only available meal is the traditional Brazilian churrasco that for less than 50 Euros allows you to have a buffet of appetisers and various kind of... More

Excellent meats, good side dishes, Barbacoa is nice for meals with family and friends. The place feels subtly luxurious without being intimidating. Wait staff are friendly. Thumbs up for Barbacoa.

5 people around a table, waiting for a taste of Brazil. We loved the restaurant, elegant, fancy, not too lousy and with great personnel. You can ask for a rodizio of meat (around 17 types served from the churrasco at your table) which includes a big buffet (salads, fish, rice with black beans, veggies), for 43 euros. Or you can...

Milan has great Italian food but we fancied an alternative one night so tracked down the Brazilian restaurant Barbacoa. Great starter buffet , great table service with a variety of meats and extensive wine list . It's tucked away in a quiet area but worth searching for

Had dinner in this restaurant. Found the meat good, and in greaaaat quantity! Service was friendly, and sweets were offered by the house. If you haven't eaten meat for long long time, then this is the place to go. The only aspect to improve is the timing between offering the various types of meat so you could give some time... More

The place is beautiful but noisy as it's quite big and often full of people. For Milan unusually classy for a churrascaria. Leave alone the starters table although yummy, or you will not have room left for the meat, which is delicious. They would bring meat until you say stop, and don't be tricked by the fact portions are small,... More

My second time there. I was so impressed that I suggested to my colleagues to pay them visit. The starter was a buffet with salads, selected fish carpaccio dishes, selected chessboard and meat dishes- DON'T OVER DO IT Once you flip your coin to green the waiters will whisk around your table offering meat cuts. They will continue unless you... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Stazione Centrale
Central Station represents a bridge towards the future. Impressive skyscrapers and new age buildings stretch the skyline with the majestic Unicredit Tower cutting through. Surrounding it are large towers that define Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the fountain and the Monumento Trombe leave one breathless. A famous building of the district is the Vertical Forest, where the innovative materials and trees planted on the terraces are a unique mix of nature and man-made construction. In the district, there is the Monumental Cemetery, known for its antique tombs with sculptures portraying angels of commemorative scenes many will find touching.
