“You're probably staying at the First Hotel Malpensa. You should eat here.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

If you had told me that, after one month in Italy, that the best meal of our entire trip would be at a small restaurant in a tiny town beside Malpensa airport I would have said no way. However, the food at the restaurant was of such good quality that it was EASILY the best meal we had during our trip (from Amalfi to Roma, Firenze to Milano). The hostess (also server) was very helpful and immediately told us about 7 different things the chef was making tonight that were not on the menu. All sounded delicious. So we split four things: Caprese salad, Pasta with seafood, Turbot filet with asparagus and roasted potatoes, and a chocolate cake with raspberry sauce. Each course was extremely well prepared, perfectly cooked, and exceptionally tasty. To be honest, every meal we had eaten in Italy to date (while certainly good) was nothing I could not cook as well myself. But this dinner was clearly prepared by a chef of quality, the flavours and execution were surprisingly good. We just loved it. At the prices were quite good (all this food plus 1/2 litre house red wine, 1L of water, and 1 espresso for less than 60 Euro total bill), and portion sizes were large! We split each course two ways, and even those portions were generous for each of us. The service was fast, the food arrived in a timely manner with beautiful presentation, and the staff were very helpful. If you are staying at the First Hotel Malpensa (well if you're reading this, I would almost bet my life you are!!) you really should eat here. I'm hoping our flight will be cancelled tomorrow so we can eat another dinner and try the other dishes.

“Great pizza, friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

We ate here twice during our short stay at First Hotel, right next door.
The pizza at lunch was very good, as was the salad.
Dinner that evening also - both of us had pasta dishes which were very good.
Baby high chair available and staff were attentive and pleasant.

“Good restaurant ... newly remodeled!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

First let me say that we had a great time and good food here! We were staying at the First Hotel Malpensa because we had a flight the next day ... we didn't want to eat at the hotel restaurant, so we read all the great reviews about this place and how it had so much character and about the two older gentlemen who ran the place ... all about the old style character and bla bla bla!
So, when we arrived and walked in to a beautifully modern, super clean restaurant, we were a bit shocked! Our two servers said that new management took over a month ago and remodeled the whole place! Ha!
But we had the asparagus risotto and it was FANTASTIC!!! We also has beef and tuna and everything was great!!!!! The wine was good and we had a great tiramisu to finish off the meal! I would eat here again!

“New and Pleasant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

While staying near Milan Malpensa Airport, we found this place next to our hotel. It had been open only a week. the menu was extensive and included a traditional Italian menu and at least twenty pizza varieties. The wood-fired ovens turned out extremely tasty pizzas that included a "frutti de mare" one and all were excellent. The staff was attentive in the appropriate degree and the newly furnished restaurant had a very pleasant ambiance. Prices were quite reasonable.

My wife and I both had pizza and it was excellent. The cheese, sausage, and mushroom was great with that great Italy crust. Highly recommend the pizza.
