The fixed offering was a dish of salumi, casoncelli (a kind of ravioli typical of Lombardia), tagliata di manzo (sliced beef seared quickly and served au point), potatoes with... More

When I first entered, the place look pretty simple and easy, without nothing exceptional out of a great variety of wine and a very "Lombard style" in everything (restaurant, menu, etc. etc.). The staff was kind and impeccable, the menu not massive neither too short, but the big surprise came with the food. Patiently made (it took some time, totally... More

My wife and i have been visiting this restaurant a few times a week since we have started a temporary living stint in MXP. It is only a few minutes (maybe 15) from the airport and we have loved the food and service. The menu is varied and we have not had a bad dish. We will continue to go... More

Welcome to the "Osteria La Rava e la Fava", our family-run restaurant. "Raccontare la rava e la fava" is an italian idiomatic expression diffused in our region, Lombardia, that means "to indulge in telling every little detail". This expression clearly derives from the peasant's jargon: the "rava" and the "fava" are vegetables and they could spend hours telling the property and secrets from the genuine food. We celebrate every day this saying trough the many details in our dishes, adding passion and expertise. Our cuisine is based on the quality of raw materials, personally researched by owner and chef Fabio Rivolta and selected from the best italian regional productions, including some of the Slow Food Presidia and the best meat available. In the kitchen, for cooking we use butter and extra virgin olive oil (no margarine). For the seasoning on the table you can choose amongst oils from different Italian regions, including organic oils. Buon appetito! Enjoy your meal!
