From piazzas to statues to streets to train stations, it seems like everywhere you go in Italy, you’ll find the name “Garibaldi” somewhere. And Milan is no different. Who or what is Garibaldi?, you might find yourself wondering. Well, we have an answer for you: Giuseppe Garibaldi was one of the four prominent figures of the late nineteenth-century Risorgimento, the Italian Unification movement. In addition to Stazione Garibaldi, one of Milan’s major train stations, you’ll also find Corso Garibaldi, home to many, many restaurants in Milan. It starts along Via Pontaccio in the Brera area (not too far from the Lanza metro) and extends to Piazza XXV Aprile, where Eataly Smeraldo stands. The long, lovely Corso Garibaldi in Milan offers a charm that’s well, quintessentially Milan as well as a number of restaurants in Milan, some of which lack in the city’s quintessential charm! Given Corso Garibaldi’s close proximity to the Brera, you’ll find some great restaurants in Milan if you know where to look. Here are some of our picks for the best restaurants in Milan on Corso Garibaldi.
