This was a surprise as we had tried to get into Il Ragazzo di Campagna, which came highly recommended. Full...the owner suggested this restaurant just down the street. Lovely surprise and great dinner. They had porcini mushrooms (right in season) in many dishes. Excellent. We can highly recommend. We were spending the night near Malpensa, flying out 6am next morning. Amazing the number of great restaurants in this area. And, they were all locals, not travelers!

Being fish lovers, we drove ~ 1 1/4 hours from Switzerland to try this restaurant and weren't disappointed. We started with a super-fresh raw fish platter (with buttery crustaceans) and delectable deep-fried zuchini flowers. This was followed by mains of perfectly-seared, sesame-crusted tuna and mixed fish grill (with tender calamari - not chewy, one of the hallmarks of a good fish restaurant in our book). We finished off the meal with fresh summer berries and the house version of 'sfogliata' (flaky pastry filled with cream). We sat on the terrace and were bothered by the mosquitoes at first but the restaurant took care of that nuisance in a hurry. A definite repeat!

Looking for a place to eat we stopped off here. Not expecting to find tables free we went in anyway. We were ushered into a lovely garden restaurant. We later discovered that all the tables had been booked as it became full shortly after we arrived. The menu is mostly seafood with a couple of carnivorous dishes just in case someone didn't like fish. The wine list is extensive. We chose our food and wine and waited until we were given our first starter. Wow! Really tasty and lovely....and our main was equally tasty and well prepared. The service was excellent and the staff very helpful and jovial. This place is wonderful and I wil go again next time I'm in area...which is at least once a year....it won't disappoint

Good service, good food (excellent seafood "frito imperial"), good terrace on a lovely spring day. Very good option for lunch on my way to Malpensa.

We were taken to this restaurant by people who live locally. The menu is only in Italian and we were helped in making our choices. The mixed seafood platter comprised a selection of their antipasti and included, prawn, scallop, octopus, and smoked salmon.
I then had turbot which was baked in a curried salt crust - very unusual and cooked perfectly. Other had differnt fish and pasta dishes which was all good too.
We discovered that the restaurant is own by the footballer Rino Gattuso and that was Interesting given the time he spent playing in Glasgow.
