Hidden but good

Best option to have dinner instead of the bad restaurants at ibis and best western. In my visit was also live music so i enjoyed both. As other opinions..they make a ticket without individual prices..so i make myself the idea that i pay more than was written In the chart.

Every time we are flying out or arriving at Milano Malpensa Airport, we like to stop here to eat. Initially recommended to us by the concierge at Ibis/Novotel, we were a little bit skeptical as the road that takes to the restaurant leads into the forest in the middle of the woods and there are no lights (the first time...

Near Malpensa Airport, this restaurant is a hidden gem. The food is authentic provincial Italian (try one of the several risottos, or the pork or steak dishes) and the atmosphere, particularly on Friday and Saturday evenings when there is a musician in full sway with waiters singing along, is lively. Having visited this restaurant on several occasions, on music and... More

The food here is really nice with all the usual suspects (pasta, pizza, steak etc.). Knocked one star off as the ice cream seemed to have crystals in and I'm not convinced that's a good thing. Also, the male toilet could do with some modernisation... However, the staff are attentive to the needs of all their guests, I saw someone... More

Our Hotel Cardano recommended another restaurant which got bad TA reviews so we found this one which is a pleasant 15min walk to the right of the hotel and into the forest road. The eating area is basic but good enough for what the place is. The serving staff speak excellent English and obviously used to dealing with tourists from... More

A friendly place situated in the woods close to Ibis Milano Malpensa Aeroporto. We thought our satnav was going crazy taking us into a dark wood for the closest restaurant but glad to be proved wrong. Majority of the seating was outside the restaurant/bar building in a semi-permanent looking structure. Staff were very friendly and had a good command of... More

I have been twice. Was staying at a nearby hotel and it seemed like a real find in the forest. The place was everything I would have wanted in a pizzeria. BUT when the bill comes it always seemed high and was not itemized. And it was a lot higher than I expected. I speak Italian and I suppose I... More

My room mate, daughter, god daughter, and I ate here in May and liked everything about it. The pizzas were delicious, large, hot, and quickly served. The staff was friendly, efficient, and pleasant. The prices were reasonable and the ambience was cosy and comfortable.

Our extended family ate at Nel Buco del Mulo on their last night in Italy, and then my wife and I ate there again when we left Italy three weeks later. Both times the meals were amazing, the staff quite pleasant, the price was right, and the setting was an interesting walk from our hotel. We couldn't have asked for... More

Went here with colleagues on a business trip. Relaxed atmosphere. Friendly service. Good food from a wide selection. For the eight of us it came to €30 a head including grappa for a few of the group. Five minutes' walk from Novotel. Recommended!
