The look is terrific, I love the retro look and feel to the machine it is the new focal point on my kitchen counter.
Negative Product Points
The only negative thing I can say is that it requires twoo hands to balance while pulling.
I recently purchased the La Pavoni Eurocuppa because I wanted a traditional pull type machine with stylish looks that pulled a great espresso, I was initially frustrated because I could not get any creama after having pulled more than 30 cups I returned to the retailer who ground up some beans for me and presto great crema!! Turned out I was not grinding the beans finely enough, I am very happy with my machine. It pulls consistantly and the frother with the included attachment makes the cappacino a pleasure to create.
The retailer where I bought the unit was helpful and informative.
