“Decent average Italian fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

The menu has quite a bit of variety, and some unexpected dishes as well. I ate here while staying at the Amadeus Hotel next door and it was above my expectations. I had Norwegian smoked salmon and a plate of grilled veggies. The veggies were a bit cold and oily but the salmon was good and well presented. The house wine was good and the staff were prompt and courteous.

“Pasta to die for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2011

We only went here because the restaurant next to our hotel was closed for the holidays. We enjoyed it so much that we went there two nights in a row. Our hotel staff had said it was just okay so we didnt have very high expectations. The food was devine. A huge selection to choose from. The owner tried really hard to speak English to us whilst I had my translator and also tried hard to speak some Italian. The staff made us feel so welcome and special. The owner recommended a pasta to me with porchini mushrooms and it really is the best, most delicious pasta I have ever tasted. The restaurant is attached to a hotel and doesnt look all that much from the street but dont pass it by. Excellent, excellent, excellent.

“Exellent Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2011

il Pavaglione is a charming restaurant offering both inside dining and an understated elegant, open air rooftop area. The service was exceptional with great recommendations for sharing and variety. The peppercorn beef filetto was incredibly tender, probably the best we have had in Europe with over 30 years of experience. Highly recommended and worth many return visits.

“Reasonable restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011 via mobile

The restaurant is not good and not bad. Food taste varies from good to very bad pasta. However the antipasti are excellent and worth a complete dinner.
