Lavish lunch breaks or late-night beers can be a hot topic in Milan, yet Woodstock 3 would be the perfect answer in both cases if you’re in the Porta Genova area.
As far back as I can remember, this friendly restaurant/ pizzeria has always been a reliable place to grab a generous lunch and also an affordable one. What at a first glimpse looks like a regular pizza place turns out to be a proper restaurant with honest food options and a great (and pretty fast!) service: that’s why many students and people who work in the area choose Woodstock 3 for lunch. It’s one of the temples of pizza by the slice – you should expect a thick pizza slice, not the Neapolitan round pizza – and you can choose between the regular cut or the abundant slice. Piece of advice, the abundant really is abundant.
For pretty much the same price you’ll be able to get a tasty “primo“, that would be pasta, gnocchi or tagliatelle, or a salad; meat-based “secondi” will be a bit more expensive. Woodstock 3 is perfect for a quick and tasty lunch but also if you want to have a little nightcap after a night out.
Lately, there has been a proliferation of cafes, small restaurants and street food spots in Milan, especially in the tourist areas. Luckily enough, a few old-style public spaces are still there, and Woodstock 3 definitely makes the list in the local people’s choice award.
