If you want to live an unforgettable experience, don’t miss “Il Beccofino”. If you’re on business or with your family, alone or with your partner, the unique and distinguished way Mr Lino welcomes you will surprise you and your lucky guests.
An affectionate clientele from all over Lombardy and from abroad too suggests to book your table in good advance.
Best dishes? Fresh fish, cooked and served in a so refined way you cannot imagine!!
Bread is home made and simply... fabulous.
Last but not least: enjoy this true “slow food” experience by sharing your emotions with your dearest ones.

Extremely courteous staff that treated me like royalty. The seafood mix was out of this world. The staff immediately switched to English one they learned I was from the USA. It is off the beaten path but well worth the trip. This will be one of my mandatory stops when I am in the Milan/Malpensa area. Extremely lovely atmosphere and very comfortable. Can not think of anything to say but I love this place!

Attentive service and great food.Two menu types, a la carte and workers.

The a la carte menu is excellent, fish pasta dishes are divine, have eaten here many times and have always been totally happy with everything. Wonderful food, good wines, and english is spoken and the menu has english descriptions which helps.

'Workers menu' (limited choice) at lunch times (not sundays) is a bargain fixed price for a first and second course with wine, water and coffee. The pasta dishes (first course) are always excellent, the second course is variable but never bad, small individual bottle of table wine is good quality, bread is always fresh. Desert is not included and isn't necessary as you will be full anyway.

When you enter don't be put off by the owners reception desk, its always untidy, has been that way for years.
Great quality at a good price.

You got to have a reservation otherwise there is no way to get a table. It's out in a small village close to Malpensa Milan Airport. Ample parking, and strange entrance with a surprise.
This is Seafood Heaven, Appetizers, First and Second Course you will have a hard time to decide what to chose or you might order several dishes per course...
The wine list is unbelievable Italian and International hard to find wines that make you dream.
The presentation and the attention to details as well as the waiters impeccable friendly attitude make a dinner experience that you will remember.

This is the third review about BeccoFino but this time I'll try to do it in English so that potential foreign customers (being the place not so far from the airport) may understand the reason for which this risto really deserves to be visited (and even because I do not want to bore with a further Italian review...).
I was missing from beccofino since almost two years but Lino confirmed once again to be a magnificent owner with a prodigious memory, even for small details.
Him and his staff are, at the same time, kind and professional and make you always feel as you were an old friend.
They may offer you both seafood and meat menues although I've always tried the seafood one as, in my opinion, the chef is a master in handling seafood and fishes; he's able to find a lot of "unusual" combinations of ingredients which leave a pleasant taste in your mouth
To make an example, yesterday we've tried a wide selections (more than ten) of small appetizers which allowed us to have a long and delightful journey across the sea.
The wine list is well assorted and with prices for all budgets.
Restaurant's ambience is quite classic with a large scenic tank containing many alive lobsters; tables are wisely organized in order to have respect for your own privacy.
It is not a cheap place, but in case you make the decision to get in, I think you don't regret having done so.
