Beautiful setting, well laid out design and decor, excellent food, very courteous and helpful waiters. Find it difficult to fault and very easy to complement.Within our group there were pizzas, fish, steak and all were complemented very highly. You will not be disappointed. Apparently the home made ice cream is divine.

Great location for this pizzeria/ristorante/ice cream parlour. Posh looking Despite being a big place as well, I reckon 200+ seatings. But don't be a fool because you'll need to book. We went on a Wednesday very early and within 1 hour the place was jam packed. The pizza was good, though in my opinion not as good as it was... More

You will find here a lot of pizzas, along with fabulous appetisers and main courses. Fish ir really good, as well as meat. Deserts are quite expensive and the portions for the appetisers quite small, but the quality is high.

Located next to Milano Malpensa airport, the restaurant I Fontanili was advised to us by our hotel front-desk manager. It took us a while to find the location without GPS but local residents helped us finding the way. We had the choice between first floor (pizza menus, very crowdy) and the second floor (classical restaurant, quiet). We opted for the... More

It is quite a big space, as many here wrote but we we've been in the evening and the dim light made it perfect and even romantic. It was a monday evening, the place was almost full but it wasn't noisy. Yes, the pizza is good, but that was just the opening. The pasta with pesto sauce and the risotto... More

I've been a few times to this pizzeria. It's really a nice environment with a very good wooden-fire pizza. Other food is choices are pretty good. The gelateria next door is also very nice. Worth a de-route from Malpensa.

The place is very nice, obtained from the refurbishment of an old farm. If I were to evaluate the architect's work, my judgment should verge on perfection, the service is kind and considerate but otherwise the place is huge, dark, there are a lot of places, a lot of people, a lot of noise. The pizza is good, nothing more.... More

Went to celebrate something with my wife. The place is really nice, ample parking nice greens, a huge refurbished farm as a restaurant, the first impression was really good. We started with an entry, a carpaccio with a stilton blue cheese, not traditional but absolutely OK. The wine (Toscane) was not just acid as the Sangiovese normally is but had... More
