Really creative menu and great quality of the food. Price was good too for that quality. Found it randomly, but I'll sure come back!

Walking through Pavia my wife and I noted this little restaurant down a narrow street. It looked great and turned out to be just as one might expect, good knowledgeable staff, great menu including many local specials (try the kidneys with saffron risotto), and well cooked. An extensive wine list supplements the great food. Sure, it is a little squeezy... More

We had two meals on the evenings of 10 and 11 October. Just a word of warning: the daily specials menu may be left up in the window but they do not do them in the evening - shame, as they look really interesting! The ambience and service are really good and relaxed; the menu has lots of interesting dishes... More

We ended at this Restaurant that the owners of our B&B recommended to us. They told us that this Osteria was one of the best in Pavia, and that it would be possible to dine until late (we were worrying because we arrived at Pavia after 20:00). Indeed, at the entrance of this Osteria it was written that they were... More

Superb, outstanding - for me this place ticks all the boxes, viz.: nice room with good atmosphere; friendly knowledgeable staff; fascinating menu with lots of local dishes; extensive wine list; local clientele; reasonable prices - tick all of these. Had the kidneys with the saffron risotto, apparently a Lombard speciality. The risotto in particular was perfection - creamy but with... More

The food was excellent, and the service very good. A good and extensive wine list. Very reasonably priced. A cozy place tucked away in a side street. Well worth a visit.

Absolutely to try if you are in Pavia. Excellent food quality, accompanied by a very large choice of wines. The service is informally perfect and they can advice you excellently on food and wine combination. On top of that, you can get an definitively genuine quality at a budget cost. Don’t miss it, highly recommended.

This little family run restaurant provides good food, good service and a lively, happy atmosphere. Only a few of the staff speak English but the waiter we had went out of his way to give us what we wanted. I had two happy evening meals there.

Recommended by the hotel and was a great find. Down a cobbled alley with a sign on the main street. Rustic furniture and quite small. Very friendly staff, teased us with their broken English but it was all in jest and added to our evening. My colleague had the local schnitzel which was huge. I had Goose leg with lemon,... More
