Delicious food, simple as it should be. Big portions and very friendly service. Beautiful terrace and ancient inside. Nice for kids also. Wine per glass for 2 euro! With a lot of choise. Visited by local people also! Nice elevated view on the surrondings and at night view to Malpensa.

I rated this place very good due to it being a complete package!
I didn't drink any of their wines, which many people have praised, but the food, which was limited (only two page menu, which sometimes can be a better, and it was the lunch menu!) was of a high quality.
We were seated outside on the lovely large verandah. Not too sure about the wonderful views (maybe 30 years ago before all the development), but the atmosphere with a full restaurant was nice.
We ordered a large variety of foods so that we could sample a litlet bit of the local Piedmonte cuisine.
Salami's, a tuna pepperoni dish to start then baby goat, a risotto and a type of Ravioli for mains, a strawberry Tiramisu and wonderful ice cream in a Zabaglione sauce. Macchiato to finish.
Our fault that it was a little rushed as we got there late, but the staff were very pleasant and efficient, so need to go back to give it another try!

This place is simply amazing! Good food prepared with well chosen ingredients. Most of the food is coming from the local North Italy cuisine.
The masterpiece of this place is the wine. Here you can find a huge choice of wine! the value for money is great!
When you order consider that the quantity of food is quite a lot so I suggest to take only a round of entree and a main course or first course and eventually a dessert.
You have to reserve a table before coming because is always full of people but the noise level is relaxed.
Absolutely suggested!!!!!!

In this typical restaurant in the tiny village of Oleggio they offer a magnificent buffet of starters which includes just about everything you may wish. Then you can order the main a la carte.
I found the choice of the starters great but the food is not "top notch" but just average. As main we tried a risotto and a soup and they were both disappointing.
To counterbalance this the prices are very reasonable, although they won't tell you how much the starter and the main cost until you pay, which I found very annoying.
Book in advance because it gets busy.
