We reserved dinner a La Torre degli Aquila based on the excellent reviews and their claim of being "vegetarian friendly". However, when we arrived and saw their menu posted near the door, we noticed that every item featured either meat or seafood. We entered and...More

The great reviews on TA certainly are well-deserved. This little (family run) restaurant has almost everything that makes eating out fun—it is nice and cosy, has friendly and efficient staff, and offers good food at affordable prices. We had a set menu and different items...More

I most definitely recommend it. Risotto was a pure delight, and the atmosphere was friendly and authentic. Also locals visit, it's so nice to watch them enjoying the dolce vita))) Definitely dine there if (when!) I'm back to Pavia.

The food in this place is sublime! The service is excellent and everyone is very accommodating to customers who don't speak good Italian.
