La Pavoni's "budget" lever machine, it features a two stage heating system, manual piston lever control, and an 8 cup capcity.

Dave Erickson (quality: 4.3)
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.
Ed Dotson (quality: 4.7)

Eric Triplett (quality: 7.0)

Erik N (quality: 5.0)

Gail McNeill (quality: 8.5)
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.
General Washington (quality: 6.0)
Bottom Line: Good espresso, but maybe not for the faint of heart.
