Our hotel told us about this restaurant. It had really good food at a very reasonable price. The food was cooked to order. The wine was good too. Many locals were there. Pizza was obviously very popular and one of us did order a pizza. It did not disappoint! The lasagne was also very good. The lemon chicken was a... More

Come here every time I stay in Cardano. Simple pizza, good wine, friendly staff at a fair price. They even offer a shuttle service to your hotel! I chose to walk to help me digest 😂

We ordered at our hotel and that was a mistake. We paid for our uneaten food and came here. Food was great, service and lack of friendliness keeps them from a solid 5. I highly recommend as anyone can have a bad day.

We stay in a nearby hotel (Best Western) about 10minutes away when using Malpensa and always come here for dinner. It stays open late (11pm) and has a good range of pizza, pasta and meat dishes that should keep everyone happy. Pizza is great value at 5-6 Euros. I especially like the veal escalope in breadcrumbs, the family enjoy chicken,... More

Looking for a nice meal after a long drive. Got the name from Trip Advisor. We really enjoyed it. Not much for atmosphere but the food was great. The young lady servers could not have been nicer and we were vey welcomed even though it was obvious we were tourists and would not be return customers. I had the veal... More

Great final meal in Italy. Ambiance is so so but the food was great and the line up of locals for pizza never stopped. The owner even came to our hotel to pick us up and then dropped us off after dinner (all 6 of us)! Grazi!

The bad reviews boggle my mind: service was excellent, the food home-made and tasty, and the prices were appropriate. The shuttle service comes to some hotels and takes you back to the hotel. The Calzones are huge, homemade, and delicious. The rib eye steak was great, as well as the grilled veggies. My hubby said the bread was delicious while... More

There are not many restaurant choices if you end up in this area. I stay in Cardano al Campo when on business and need to fly out of Malpensa on some early morning flights. But I do like this place, and have been many times. The prices of the pizza and house wine are pretty good. On average pizzas are... More

How this place got to be number one on trip advisor's list boggles my mind! Perhaps because the staff speaks English, so foreign tourists flock there. We were three adults, and we had wine, pizza, salmon, and spaghetti with sea food. Pizza was standard, salmon was ok (when you order salmon steak, all you get on a plate is a... More
