Description: Recommended in Lonely Planet and elsewhere. IT is a small gem, creative and sophisticated, far beyond the usual "cucina tipica." A real find and definitely worthy of TA attention.

We had lunch in 4 with 2 children, we had an excellent antipasto of cotechino and one of local cold cuts, as a main raviolo truly oustanding and ossobuco con risotto, good but not exciting for me but quite possibly made according to tradition. Very good desserts. I have given only 3 based on the service which I found dissapointing. We ordered 2 fantas which were almost a year past the expiry date which we sent back, no other were available. When we asked for the check we found a trivial error in the sum which we pointed outr in a polite manner to our server - who I believe was also the owner - he was very annoyed by this and didn't even say goodby to us.

In the old City this small family-run typical trattoria is cozy and welcoming.
Cristina is in the kitchen and Marco the husband is serving the 40 guests.
Simple but delicious Lombard dishes. I suggest :
Appetizers tasty and simple; the spinach and ricotta tart and the gnocchetti.
The "Osso buco" has been perfectly slow-cooked as my mother used to, tender and full of savor.
Impressive selection of regional cheeses, served with blueberry marmelade, 'mostarda' , walnuts and honey
Ice cream and 'zabaione' bunet to end a perfect meal,
The cellar is interesting. Good choice : 'Senso 2007' Chardonnay
To recommend!

Very nice and cosy trattoria in charming Pavia.
It's located in the city center.
It's a family business, the wife is the cook and the husbaid the waiter.

Locals told us to come here. The husband was the waiter. Great food and service. What a find. We were a group that studied in Pavia 50 years ago. We were all very pleased. Cristina and Marco are fabulous

This small family-run restaurant seems to be one of the most popular eating places in Pavia. It is homelike and friendly but also elegant and professional. The cuisine is local Lombard style and utterly delicious. One of our first courses was the cotechino with purè di castagne, the other was the tripe; both were simple dishes prepared to perfection. One of us then had the costolette d’agnello con carciofi romaneschi, with first-quality lamb and two sizable pieces of meaty flavourful artichoke. Our other secondo was the coppa di suino con salsa di mele. Not only the meat and its sauce were perfectly prepared but also the accompanying vegetables (broccoletti, tiny string beans, and small fava beans). As our wine we chose the archetypal bonarda vivace from the Oltrepò (Fratelli Agnes). Everything about this meal was harmonious and satisfying. You couldn’t choose a better place for a meal in Pavia, but reservations are essential.
