Milan & Monza during F1 weekend

Hi. I'm staying near the main Milan railway station during the Formula 1 race weekend at the Monza race track (9th - 13th September).

Does anyone have any recommendations for 'reasonable' quality restaurants near the Monza race track for early-evening meals? I'm assuming I'll need to book soon to get a table.

Also, we'd like to have one really good meal near our Milan hotel - any recommendations? Classic northern Italian would be the preferred style, but we're quite adventurous so alternatives would be fine.

Many thanks,

Pembroke, Wales area: home made cakes, chippies, caring restaurants?

A bit late, but we've just returned from a short break in the area, and can recommend the Mews Bistro in Tenby:

Don't be put off by the slightly chavvy surroundings, and the decor [which needs a refresh]. I had the best grilled salmon I've had for years: nice Sancerre, too.
