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.
