I have been to Italy many times and have eaten in many places but the pasta here was the best of the places I have been to. We learned of this place from students at Bocconi a school near by. If you want to eat what the locals eat, this is the place!

This is a local hangout for young and old. It does not fancy itself as gourmet or high end. It is just basic food and a good price. We found it a great place to stop at the end of a very busy day for some pizza. Italian version of Pizza Hut or Little Ceasars. Fit the bill for us...

We have been here with friends and it was almost impossible to ear each other, noisy ambient! The impression is that the food quality is very poor, and the service is poor as well. The food here is far away from the lovely italian cuisine! However the prices are very convenient!

Ok, prices for this location are incredibly low, but the food quality is horrible. The cheapest cheese on pizza, old rucola. Fresh Prosciutto ? It was a cheap fully processed meat. Fresh white mushroom ? Some marinated mushrooms were served to us with pizza. Service is really poor ( waiter kept his fingers on top of the pizza during the... More

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....

Staying in Navigli

Neighborhood Profile
Navigli
The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande. The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.
