We just landed from Cairo airport, after a week of dreafull all inclusive meals in Hurghada, Egypy, where we lost about 2kg each. We were craving for anything that actually had taste and searched the trusty Tripadvisor. when we arived at Samarcanda (around 13:00), the restaurant was full. Not a single seat available. Mostly local people of all social ranks,... More

Home cooking type of food, veal chop with mushrooms was delicious as was my pizza, very sensibly priced and serviced by young staff who spoke English with a good sence of humour. I'll certainly use again when stopping over at Malpensa Airport

Thank you for your review and thank you for wanting to return. But I would venture to say that ours is not a family cuisine but offer a variety of meals with the finest ingredients. Best regards. More

Four of us enjoyed our meals, nicely prepared and presented. Staff attentive without being obtrusive. My salmon was done perfectly. Wine selection small, but met our needs. We would return. Just minutes from the Malpensa Airport.

Good thing is that it is open late into the night. The pizza I ordered wasn't that great and the staff was not too helpful but neither rude. I guess a busy place does that to you. I have had better pizza in Trieste.

Good evening, our restaurant as well as the kitchen is also popular for pizza, service, and the availability of our waiters. All of this character there and distinguishes us. Best regards. More

Our dinners were mostly good - one overcooked veal chop, though, and they did not address that. Otherwise, pizzas were fine, pasta was fine. But just go here if you are in the area and need a meal - no other option is as good.

It's a pretty busy place with an excellent selection of food and pizzas of a good standard. Staff speaks english..sh and always happy to accomodate customer requests. No matter how busy they may be you are guaranteed to eat sooner or later.

I spent two nights in local hotels at either end of a long weekend in the area and on both evenings dined at this restaurant. It is an unexpected gem so close to a major international airport. Excellent pizza and pasta and very reasonably priced. Situated in a local village environment at easy walking distance from several of the local... More

I think I had the best spaghetti carbonara I have ever had. The egg sauce is so rich and still fresh. Spaghetti very fresh and al dente just hit the spot. You should make a reservation to be sure to get yor table.

The atmosphere was nice but more lounge and bar like than a restaurant. Food was good. Nice Belgium beer. Only waiting time was a bit longer as the place was very busy. Anyhow, I would come again...
