We dined in the hotel as the restaurant of choice for a celebration. The food was high quality, with sufficient variety across all courses to satisfy almost all tastes. Wine was expensive, and perhaps we did not choose well, not best vfm for drink Atmosphere is warm and welcoming with a blend of background buzz to accompany our private meal.... More

We stayed for one night at the hotel and we had dinner here and it was very good. The staff was amazing with us and specially with the kids. The food was way over our expectations and we will definitely come back.

La Fornace is a member of the Unione Buon Ricardo restaurant association. I have never been disappointed by any of the member restaurants, and La Fornace went beyond my expectations. The ambience is exceedingly pleasant and the staff is exceptionally attentive and accommodating.

This restaurant was the only reason we chose to venture from the MXP airport hotels. A new member of the buon riccordo Union and the signature dish did not disappoint. A pheasant ravioli with chives and black truffle garnish In a brown sauce. The limoncello sorbet was a tart but an amazing finishing touch. They bring containers of gummy treats... More

I ate at this restaurant 4 times over the course of a work trip. The restaurant is well presented but overall for what they charge the food is average and tended to be over seasoned. I ate only one meal which I would class as good.

Stumbled across this hotel and restaurant when visiting an exhibition in Milan - Rho. Can't speak highly enough about the menu, the service, or the quality of the food. There are hotels in Paris, Milan and London which have world-renowned restaurants on their premises. This is definitely a high second-division alternative.
