I've got a La Pavoni professional which I bought in '96 and which produces tremendous shots, when it produces at all. It's been way too temperamental, overheating and blowing fuses like crazy, and now it's stopped working altogether. I want to send it in for a good repair estimate to see if it's worth saving. Maybe some upgrades are possible? Can anyone suggest a reliable shop in the NYC area? Would be much obliged for help/experiences you've made.

I have been dealing European Gift and Housewares, Domanic has been very good to me. I don't know how their repair is. But I would try to repair it myself and use him as a reasorse. I have not had any problems with mine. I have not taken it apart for any electrical problems, but every thing else so I feel confident I could. parts seem to be expencive. E-mail me if you would like.
