We arrived rather early, having a hungry 20 month old with us. We were made very welcome, and despite not having the full menu available to us (we were too early), the pizza we ordered was delicious. Our little one was provided with a plate of very tasty pasta, very quickly, which made her very happy! The house wine was... More

Short walk from the train station. Split a pizza and a kabob and a salad. Still a lot of food. Pizza crust is very thin- good flavor.

The food is ok, but the atmosphere is terrible, the tables are tiny and crowded, and the wine list is unacceptable. They only have two types of red wine and they're over-priced and poorly rated. Skip this restaurant. Pavia has lots of better ones.

Dear Chata, Thank you for your review.

We chose Drago Marino for the gluten free reputation. In fact, they had a half kilo of one kind of pasta. OK, we chose that. There was a nice selection of GF breads. July's muggy heat was replicated inside despite fans and struggling AC. The staff was pleasant, and brought our tired and hungry 8 year old her pasta quickly,... More
