Great Food!

After waiting longer than we would have liked, we were served by the owner who breezed through everything that we needed. Other than the wait, the food was great and everyone was pleasant and smile at you. Seem like the pizza was their signature meal as everyone seem to be ordering pizza. Of course... read more

Visited at the rcommendation of a nearby B&B, it was so good we returned the next night, and the day after for a pizza before our flight. By far the best pizzas we had in Italy, also very good pasta dishes. good ice-cream but the fish and other desserts we had could be improved on. The staff are very friendly... More

We ate at the hotel for dinner our last night and we were amazed at the quality of food. IT was delicious. The atmosphere was charming because it is family run so our waiter was telling us how his mother had made the desserts fresh that day. The tiramisu was to die for!

while staying at Moxy Hotel, the hotel suggested this restaurant for dinner. 10 Euro for prompt courteous round trip door to door shuttle service. This is a great restaurant full of locals, young couples, families, large groups of friends and many assorted aged couples. Great food, varied menu- seafood, beef, pasta and great wines. Attentive courteous prompt service with no... More

Decent food and wine options, but not exceptional if you've eaten at any other top restaurants in Italy. Our waiter seemed to have forgotten about us during the course of the evening, and did not even bring out a birthday dessert as had been requested.

On a Saturday evening we were at the Moxy Hotel (Malpensa Airport T2) with a lot of time to kill. The very friendly people at the reception suggested that we should take the shuttle to the Osteria della Pista, 10 Euros per couple, to and fro and enjoy dinner. We decided to go and boy, were we surprised! One of... More

if you are staying in the hotel, you will be eating here...the food is magnificent. They have dishes like pacchiere di gamborgna with scallops and broad beans, and spaghetti in black squid ink with lobster at very reasonable prices.
