We tried this adorable restaurant for a romantic dinner and we were really satisfied with our choice. The position is excellent, -just a few minutes from the Dome-, and the inside is nice and accurately furnished with old-stylish objects, such as the gramophone at the entrance, which filled the room with a relaxing melody.
We both ordered a delicious risotto with squids and candied lemon, then bass with prawns and clams as second course. Finally we tried a lemon pie with italian meringa: very tasty! Good portions, savoury dishes, professional and polite staff, cosy atmosphere and a great price/quality ratio: what else? Really worth a visit!

Recommended to us as one of the best Restaurants in Pavia and it’s worth a visit...but expect huge portions and a lot of meat! Very friendly, family run, cosy, old traditional interiors.

Enjoy!

Trip Advisor rates the Osteria della Madonna as the first restaurant in Pavia, and deservedly so. In the beautiful, medieval, pedestrianised city centre, not far from the river Ticino, the osteria takes its name from a fresco of the Madonna just above its door. It retains the character and the layout of an old osteria, but in the same time it offers you the food, the ambience and the service of a great restaurant - at the price of an osteria. The food was fantastic, joining pavese tradition with Southern Italian inventivity (where the chef comes from), but what was remarkable was the warm, kind, smiling professionalism of the whole staff. Wonderful.

My wife and I reserved table for Saturday night. They gave us a table in a cozy and quiet place in a wine cave. In the background, it was vinyl player playing soft jazz music.
We went for a typical Pavese meal.
We shared cured meat with all typical north italy specialties. Then risotto and duck with foie. Everything was excellent. Definitely, I will come back again.
Additionally, they have a great wine list.
