We were visiting a friend who lives in Monza and she brought us to this hidden gem of a restaurant. It's very small, and we were lucky to be seated in the small back room. When we first entered, it seemed more like a deli with a glass case full of food in front, but then upon turning the corner into the two small dining rooms, it became very charming.

The service was good and the food was very good. The Cottaletto alla Milanese and the pasta carbonara were both quite good as was the antipasto platter.

We were very happy our friend decided to bring us to this place...if in Monza, I would highly recommend it!

Referred by Hotel de la Ville. Excellent local dishes and wine pairings. Just go and let the owner look after you - let him choose the wine!
We will return

As much as I would like to keep this place secret, I cannot in good conscience.
The place is centrally located in Monza but on one of those tiny roads. You have to know it's there. It has very few tables and a small menu, which I prefer. Everything is fantastic. The staff is very kind & helpful for those times you cannot decide. They also speak English. Paolo, the owner, really knows wine. He knows exactly how to pair the food with the it. Oh! And his explanations are perfect.

We visited this place for lunch. The staff is super friendly and the food is tasty but portions are small. More expensive than other places but the food is good. I took the Gnoccho with truffle sauce and it tasted nice but i got 4 or 5 gnocchos
