Retaurant recommendations near Milano Centrale

We will have two hours between trains at lunchtime.

Does anyone know of a place they can recommend for a quick, satisfying lunch?

We will each have one rolling suitcase with us, so we can't go too far.

Of course, first word is spelled wrong! Restaurant.

There are several restaurants just across the street from the train station along with quite a few hotels which will likely have restaurants also. You won't have a problem finding something to eat.

Thanks ky,

When I was doing my online research for eating places, I did notice that hotels in that area have decent restaurants.

I'll check further into hotel locations near the train station.

Thanks.

I'm not going to be in Milan until June but have been doing research - also, the NYT travel section has a good story about Milan's restaurants. Can't vouch that all these are just steps away from the Duomo but....

Carta_Pisana,

I clicked on the Peck link you provided, but it appears that this is an online store, not a brick-and-mortar restaurant on the street.

You also suggested restaurants near the Duomo, but I don't know how far away from Milano Centrale the Duomo (Galleria Mall) is located. It's been five years since I've actually been "in" Milano - not just passing through its train station.

I will check out your other links now.

The famous restaurant of Peck is Cracco Peck but it is nowhere near the station and you would not have time in just two hours.

Okay, so Peck is out. We will be leaving Lucca (through Florence) that morning, so a decent lunch is important.

At 2:15 p.m., we have to take our third train of the day to Varenna.

For me. and gracie04, I'm hoping someone will see this thread.

Here is one lead, for a seafood place:

I wish I could be of more help. I have stayed near the station several times and do remember a couple of decent trattorie but it was too long ago for me to be more specific! Let us know what you find..

ekscrunchy, That restaurant is in a good location relative to the train station.

What's up with the "reservations obligatory?" Maybe they are only referring to dinner...

Peck does have dining upstairs, but I think that you will not have time with only two hours. I agree with the others, just find something across the street from Milano Centrale. Also, they do have a little restaurant and a sandwich kiosk right inside the train station. Then, you could just wait and have your nice meal once your arrive at your destination.
