the restaurant was full and a queue of people waiting to come in. The prices are reasonable however the meals are not brilliant, the meat and cheese board was very rustic, the pizza base not crispy and lacked topping, the risotto seemed to be made with lower grade quality Italian sausage but the desert was ok. This is however expected... More

I've been at Trattoria La Magolfa a few times in the last six months. Twice the pizza was pretty good and once it was too rubbery. The venue is the italian typical trattoria, furniture has a few decades. I've never tried other kind of food except pizza. Service is quick and prices are fair in comparison with the other restaurants... More

This restaurant is located in the Navigli area and it was a surprise for us. We just wanted to have a pizza before starting the night, but then we decided to have a complete meal because the prices were absolutely low and everything on the other tables seemed so good! All the pizzas are tasty, and you are served homemade... More

If you look at local reviews you'll find the truth. This family run and busy restaurant has all the hallmarks of what a tourist wants...authenticity. Sadly, whilst it has that the actual food is very bland and whilst fairly cheap, it won't impress you all that much. I've had better Italian meals in London and far better elsewhere in Italy....

For 25 ? my girlfriend and I had a nice focaccia with rucola and tomato (free of charge), pasta 4 formaggi, one of the best pizza diavola... More

We went as a recommendation of a friend. It's a place close to the canals, it's pretty local with good prices. However, the pizza to me was a little too heavy, it needed 1 or 2 more minutes in the oven. The wine is not so great, and it was crowded, I definitely needed the coffee after that heavy dinner....

Chosen based on recommendation from Tripadvisor and it was the right choice. The lively and popular restaurant is located in a quiet side street off Naviglio canal and serves reasonably priced pizza and pasta. After spending the weekend in Milan, it was perhaps for the first time I felt like not being overcharged... Food very good (pizza, penne, risotto) and... More

Dropped in for lunch and was lucky to get a table. Full of Italians on lunch break. Food is simple and broken down into antipasti, pasta, fish and meat. I ate penne with house sauce (tomato, pancetta and cream) Really nice. It was accompanied by freshly cooked flatbread. I ordered a glass of vino Rosso and got a small carafe... More

I've been here a couple of times already and all I can say is: this is one of my favourite restaurants in Milan. Great service, great food, good pricing and the location is nice as well. Near the Naviglio river. I highly recommend it for everyone. Cheers!

I am visiting Magolfa for years already if I want to have a surely nice evening with friends. The reasons? One of the best quality / price rate in the city for a pizza + beer combo. They can just do the pizza the right way and ask a very honest price. For the same reason the place can get... More
