This restaurant is 10 minutes from Malpensa which makes it an excellent choice for lunch or dinner if you are traveling to or from the airport. The staff is wonderfully attentive and food is delightful. Everything is made in-house and the menu offers the regional staples and the chef supplements the offerings with seasonally inspired specials. I had the good fortune to try a desert which can only be described as outstanding, grappa infused mousse. It was remarkably light and yet delivered a true grappa flavor with no alcohol edge. Even folks who think grappa is like paint thinner will find this desert an amazing option.
The prices are appropriate and the wine list is good. I travel to Italy several times a year and without a doubt when my air travel takes me through Maplensa I will go back.

On the menu they have typical dishes from Lombardy; we went for Pizzoccheri and they were awesome! The typical “elephant ear” (thin wide slice of pork meat breaded and fried) was delicious and crunchy! Staff is friendly and professional, they also have several desserts on the menu (creme brûlée looked great but we were too full to give it a go;) Different types of wines and beers are also available and the menu has an English version too! Thumbs up for this lovely restaurant!

Beautiful Italian food, and seriously, on a personal level, I was very happy not to have pizza take up half the menu! I visited again a couple of weeks later as I was craving their parmigiana di melanzane (aubergine), and was, again, not disappointed. The second visit I had a small cheese platter entree, which had some amazing tasters, including a delicious local one - please ask them, as I could not for the life of me get my lips around the very long name! Great looking wine menu, although I chose beer, of which there were also some non generic choices. Staff are very pleasant and very informative about the menu. Best of all, they don't loiter, but are there when need them. I will be back, bringing my fellow business travellers.
