We were told about this place and was not disappointed. Ask for Vincenzo, he's one of the sons whose family owns this place and yes he speaks very good English. All their pastas are homemade. My husband had trofia (type of pasta) with pesto, string beans & zucchini. I had homemade ravioli they even mix their own meat for their ravilo. They were cooked in sage butter. A glass of rose' and I had a salad with egg, string beans, tomatoes. The whole meal was WONDERFUL! There is a deli also with everything you would want. Since we were the last ones to leave Vincenzo introduced us to his parents and a few friends. We felt like part of the family. NOTE: they close for two weeks in August.

Thanks to a friend of ours who lives nearby, we've discovered this very nice restaurant offering you a cozy and intimate side at the back of the restaurant, a more trendy hall with a grocery counter next to the till and the veranda outside covered by the " portici" and protected by the glass all along the dinner area.

The service and the personnel was good and Roberto was very careful to let us try the special of the day and serve us the way we wanted : treated as usual customer and assign the right wine for the right dish.

We had a bit a mix starter out which i recall a beautiful fresh “Scamorza” , milky and juicy: something I’ve never tried before . All dishes were well presented for my own surprise.
The wine list was pretty wide but we've trusted the host suggestion to start with a local small toscany wine maker specialized on Sangiovese's . EPIBIOS - we loved that wine . Great body and lovely fruity back taste .

But what I appreciated the most was definitely the main dish : stuffed duck rolled and cooked in Pistachio crumbs...juicy and tender. Very well managed in the way it was cooked, crispy outside juicy inside . a delicatessen . I strongly suggest it .

Well, from now on you found a new customer.

ciao

Not only the food is very good done with "fresh products" but the cooking is making those unique
In addition they do have such good wine and if you listen their specialist you will have something unique for a diner

Enjoyed fabulous lunch of risotto and Goulash di stinco di maiale (pork calf) with potato flan, out of this world good... from a real foodie. Great wine/service complement this casual but refined restaurat, in the heart of Pavia. Gracious host showed us the ample wine selection in his cellar.

After a week of beautiful weather, on a cloudy day, this lunch topped off our week in Italy.

I had a fantastic dinner experience at La Korte in Pavia. The atmosphere of the restaurant was fabulous with the brink walls and surrounded by wine and interesting objects from around the world. The mixed appetizers we excellent, spinach risotto phenomenal, and main course delightful. The wait staff was very friendly and handled our big group very well. And how could I forget the exceptional wines. Great choice and looking forward to going back.
