We got here for the Christmas holidays. The restaurant is a bit shabby and the servers are not very polite.
The food is definitely not local or anything special and is very expensive compared to the rest of the city. They had a very expensive fixed menu for Christmas.

One of the best meal I ever had in the whole Europe until now...The waiter was able to attend me in English and recommend a great dish. I highly recommend this place.

Off the beaten track, this is the place where you come for food, great food, excellent wine and great trattoria atmosphere!

I visited the place with friends from Pavia: on the way to our table the chef Lele sneaked out of the kitchen with a huge smile on his puffy face and was holding a tray full of delicacies....

The choice is great: simply let the chef or the charming staff guide you through the many options, and then simply ask for a sampling of always different (but fresh and delicious) antipasti.

This is what I call the "ultimate trattoria": honest, simple and great food. Lele is not here to trick you with fake recipes or pretentious dishes. Genuine to the core, the menu is never a disappointment. The house wine is more than decent, but you can choose from a variety of other interesting wines, inevitably local.

Anytime I am in town, this place is a must visit!

The best thing to do is to let the Cook and Waiter to guide you through their menus! Excellent food, excellent atmosphere, created mainly by the persons who work there, run, own and manage the place. If you are in Pavia or surroundings do not miss this place!!! Satisfaction of your mouth and your pocket is guaranteed!
