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

This time was really packed so the service was slow. But we come here very often and we strongly recommend this place. Good food and extremely affordable. The place is nothing fancy but still keeps the atmosphere of an authentic little trattoria even if run by foreigners now. Location very quiet street they have a nice outdoor terrace that they...

Few steps far from the Naviglio, heart of Milano's nightlife, this place is definitely worth going for three reasons: 1) food is very good and abundant (also the salads were very rich), real italian; 2) they are super fast; 3) it is embarassingly CHEAP (we thought that the total price for 3 was just one person's bill)

My favorite place to eat pizza at Milan, the food is cheap and the quality is high. If you want to eat Italy's typical pizza La Magolfa is the perfect place. Near the Naviglio it is the best place to eat before a night city site seeing of Milan. The service is good and a typical italian pizzeria atmosphere P.S:... More
