This was our first visit to the restaurant and I found it to be just a average middle of the road restaurant. I start with ordering a bottle of wine which they were out of and the wine they sub it with wasn't as good...More

We love Italian food and Il Pavone is one of our favorites. The ambiance is nice and the wine selections are good. Il Pavone also caters many of the club meetings and social events at our Rossmoor senior community. We chose Il Pavone to cater...More

small, quiet, intimate atmosphere with two semi outdoor enclosed areas. Service is wonderful...old school Italian dining. Pricey but serving size is large. They have a twilight hour for early dinner. Reservations best.

A last minute choice of convenience lead three friends to gather at Il Pavone and we were glad we did! Excellent Martini and house Pinot Grisio follies by delicious risotto and chicken piccata with wonderfully roasted potatoes, garlic and other root vegetables. Service was warm...More

We've eaten here only twice. Most recently Mother's Day 2016. It's near my mother's home but too far from ours for an outside meal. In both cases we've experienced fantastic food and service. I've noticed when driving by in the evening to visit my mother...More

We came here on a Sunday after the early bird dinners. It was still quite busy and it seemed like there wasn't enough wait staff. Our party wanted to start out with the fried calamari as an appetizer, but was told it was not available....More
