After reading the reviews, we decided to try. It is not easy to find, tucked away 3 or 4 streets away from the city center. We were there for dinner and it was nearly empty. In fact, we were the only people eating outside, where the view is very nice overlooking the area. The menu is very simple but, mostly local dishes so not easy to understand without local help. We tried chicken liver pate, vegetables with garlic / anchovy sauce and tuna stuffed peppers (our favorite of the antipasti). For mains, we shared a gorganzola pasta dish, polenta with donkey sauce, risotto and a cheese plate. We just asked the waitress to select a local red wine for us. Overall, the dishes were good, view was nice and price was very reasonable.

Fabulous food, comfortable place, fantastic wine list. All the food is freshly cooked when ordered so not a place to go if you're in a hurry. But for a leisurely lunch with first class food in wonderful surroundings, make sure it's on your list !

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!
