Gail McNeill (quality: 8.5) 10.03.2009 Rating: 10.0
Bottom Line: Italian steel-and-chrome perfection; seven years (so far) of excellence. If you want is what it was designed for- 6oz double cappuccinos, there's no better. If not, look elsewhere.

Bottom Line: One has to be interested in the "art" and "science" in order to make best use of the machine. If the review sounds like too much trouble, buy a semi-automatic machine instead.

Dave Erickson (quality: 4.3) 01.11.2006 Rating: 7.2
Bottom Line: Owning a La Pavoni Europiccolo is very much like owning an expensive Italian sports car: It's beautiful to look at, and when it works, you feel really great. But if you aren't a mechanic, be ready to pony up regularly for maintenance.
Johan Vaktnaes (quality: 6.3) 02.11.2006 Rating: 7.2
