2h15 to eat ... the waiter who talk to me with humor without empathy for the delay ... a desire to leave the table after 1 hour and half ... about 70€ for a menu and 1 glass of wine ... it is too bad...to ruin a dinner which started with magic ideas in the plate. Absolutely no apology for everything ! It's shameful to see that in this kind of restaurant. The worst it is that I signed the invoice ... So I will sign also this post. Emmanuel FONTANAMore

Every time is a great experience. The food, the service, the wine, the staff everything was perfect! Thank you. The meat melts in your mouth, the salad of artichoke lightly and tasty, the dessert also very special. The chef Vincenzo Marconi is a kind person...and I’m sure I’ll back another time.More

We dined in the hotel as the restaurant of choice for a celebration. The food was high quality, with sufficient variety across all courses to satisfy almost all tastes. Wine was expensive, and perhaps we did not choose well, not best vfm for drink Atmosphere...is warm and welcoming with a blend of background buzz to accompany our private meal. The staff were friendly and keen to ensure we had a fine dining experienceMore

I really enjoyed my lunch there. This restaurant is part of s a voluntary association of restaurateurs aimed to enhance the traditions of regional cuisine, named "Piatti del Buon Ricordo". A truly exquisite food in a very pleasant environment!! Staff was willing to help and...they speak english as well. The chef come personally to the restaurant, to explain doubts and to bring his creations to the table. At the end I was offered a complimentary selection of deserts that were delicious. A place to never forget!!More

We stayed for one night at the hotel and we had dinner here and it was very good. The staff was amazing with us and specially with the kids. The food was way over our expectations and we will definitely come back.

La Fornace is a member of the Unione Buon Ricardo restaurant association. I have never been disappointed by any of the member restaurants, and La Fornace went beyond my expectations. The ambience is exceedingly pleasant and the staff is exceptionally attentive and accommodating. While the...setting is romantic, it also accommodated a family with young children while we were there during dinner. It takes a car or taxi to reach, but is convenient to Malpensa airport, about half way in between the airport and Milano, a 10 minute detour from the Autostrade. It is located in the Hotel Poli, which is also a wonderful quiet hideaway, which I will review separately, but it offers a convenient solution if everyone wants to enjoy the nice and reasonably priced wine list. The chef did an excellent job with everything we ordered and I would rate it on a par with most of the best restaurants I've found.More
