This modest little restaurant in the middle of "nowhere" (coincidentally happens to be next door to First Hotel...reviewed on their page) is just excellent. Run by the two old muppets who are always in the balcony of the muppet shows, the food was excellent there were a treasure with their excitement. Had the calamari and risotto and both were terrific. Fun experience with a modest price. Go there for sure.

Save for our flight being cancelled and having to stay at an hotel near the airport, I never would have believed I would find myself not only eating at this restaurant, but taking the time to write a raving Yelp review.
Run/administered/served by at least two older men who have been associated with the place for almost 50 years, I cannot help but say this is truly one of those few magnificent places one rarely comes across.

Service rushed and limited choice. Very expensive with starters from 9e upwards. Also drinks expensive

I wonder how this restaurant could be this rated in here.
Perhaps is popular for tourist who are going to fly from Malpensa airport which is nearby but I am Italian and the food was terrible from A to Z.
Rice was watery and tasteless, Veal cutlet was old. The garnish of the cutlet was a radish that from some reason (ie the same old radish was used and reused) was a bit yellow and red at the bottom - disgusting.
The restaurant probably opened 40 years ago and nothing changed: the decor, the cutlery and even the waiters that now must be 80 or so (they were nice though). If you want to see how an Italian erstaurant was in the '70s then please come to eat here but do not expect to eat great food.

My wife and I ate here our last night in Italy. We saw that there were many good reviews on Trip Advisor so we gave it a shot. This restaurant is like a time warp back to the 70's. The two elderly waiters run this place so efficiently. The food and wine was excellent. Although I enjoyed the food I was laughing at the waiters running around all night. This place is definitely worth a visit if you are staying near Malpensa.
