After a couple of years I had a dinner at the Hostaria della Pignatta with my girlfriend and, despite not being a regular, the owner recognized me almost immediately and remembered my name too.

During the dinner we had the following:

- "Misto la Pignatta", a selection of salami, sausage, ham, bacon and other appetizers;
- Zucchini blossoms filled with stracchino cheese;
- Cotoletta alla milanese (not easily translatable), with oven baked potatoes;
- Gnocchi with Castelmagno cheese and pepperoni;
- Panna cotta with mixed berries;
- Croustade with apples and almond cream

All the dishes were very well cooked and the quality of the raw materials was very good too.

The atmosphere was perfect since the place is quiet, this is very appreciated because you can have a good conversation without being worried about noise coming from the other tables.

Service was perfect, and the price paid was fair based on the quality of the food and the wine we had (Barolo Bussia Soprana 2004).

Recommended for business dinners/romantic dinners or if you just want to pamper yourself.

Pretty much of what can be said is in the title...

The place is a typical small town "osteria" (or "trattoria"), with a bit more of attention to the location. The owner is from Puglia, the cook from Sicily and both have been widely contaminated with Lombardy taste, so if you want to appreciate a mix of italian food cultures this is the place.

The menu is very wide (about 15 appetizers, 15 first dishes, 15 second dishes, several home-made sweets, etc) as well as the wine list; uncommon for a small town restaurant in this area is the fact that most of the dishes are based on fish and they are also very good (this relates with the origins of the staff..).

On lunch they have a fixed menu for 10 euro and the place is quite crowded, in the evening things change radically (as usual in Milano), the food is only a la carte and the price ranges in 25-35 euro.

Must try dishes (of course one of them..): Cassoela (seasonal), Maialino al forno (baked pork), Palermitana fish. Excellent are the home made cakes, try them.

The staff is very kind but be aware that they do not speak english very well (they will try their best in any case to communicate in some way), the place can arange for gluten-free food (they have gluten free bread, pasta and everything), for vegetarian food (even though this is not a place I would recommend for a vegetarian meal), for pork-free food, etc.
