This was a fixed-menu conference dinner, so pity I could not choose my favourite food. But quality of food was definitely excellent. And nice location too.

This restaurant is tucked away in a corridor located in the center of Pavia. We had a nice variety of dishes in this restaurant which included a assortment of salumi and also included paste's, meat and fish dishes. We had a large group and everyone was pretty happy with their dishes. Very nice atmosphere which allows for people to enjoy... More

Whilst roaming Pavia we saw a little sign at a side street pointing to an Osteria alle Carceri. The sign was above graffiti and everything should have said "forget it" but we were drawn in by something. When we reached the little restaurant and read the menu we though mmmm ... lovely pastas and the list of interesting dishes included... More

Huge plates, we couldn't finish everything and it was such a shame because everything was delicious! Better book in advance.

Any place named for the old god may have ominous portends for what awaits inside, but we found this a darling osteria full of lovely local food. Rice is the star here and so is the salumi. Loved the river fish, while my femme chose the lake variety Nun plus ultra.

November offered a menu with all truffles (black truffles) while they lasted. The pasta was very good indeed, and the truffles were fresh, as they should be, otherwise they are worthless. Traditional torte for desserts. No trace of one of my favourite dishes on the menu: the goose leg confit. Maybe next time?

Very difficult to express any sort of analysis as for the type of restaurant it is very much down to subjectivity. This then means that it is not a bad place. However, for the stile I prefer, my personal judgement is not positive. First of all the place presents its self as an Osteria of a certain level and this... More

We were wandering around looking for dinner and found this by accident. They open for dinner at 8. We made a reservation and returned. Our group was five persons. We had a cheese plate (six cheeses and don't ask me what they were!) and a meat plate (4 or 5 different things) and some raw chopped beef (cruda) for starters.... More

Really creative menu and great quality of the food. Price was good too for that quality. Found it randomly, but I'll sure come back!
