We will be flying into Malpensa late in the afternoon later this coming month and are looking for a convenient place to stay and dine. Anyone have recent dining experience at Villa Crespi?

Not for three years but it's a classic, with pretty good food and easy to get to Malpensa from.

If you read Italian there is a review from 2007 by 'Viaggiatore Gourmet'

here

and even if you don't read Italian the pictures are pretty clear on the type of cuisine and venue this is. Enjoy!

I always pitch Oleggio as the most convenient place to stay. It's 10-15 minutes in the morning on a back road with no traffic. And, staying there will get youo access to Il Gatto e Le Volpe, in Oleggio, a SlowFood place first recommended by Tim at Villa Sampaguita. He's a regular here. This is a great place the one time we went.

Also, the palce to stay: I've change dmy mind over the years. Now I stay at the Oleggio Ramada. It's kind of new-look upscale. But it's really nice and convenient for airport access. A clean good place to stay on the last night. There are some real dogs in Oleggio.

Also #2, there's a cheap pizza place right on the main square in Old Oleggio centro. There are two. Go tot he good one, on teh right . Hmmmm, "right." Anyway, it's smaller and older than the other one.
