While the actual coffee "Pedrocchi"is very good, the Caffe itself, while luxuriously beautiful, suffered from lines that were too long and unfriendly service, especially to non-Italian speaking customers.

The 18th century Pedrocchi Café is in central Padua. The prominence architecture look like an addition of styles and forms.. You sure cannot miss it if you are looking for a "white table" dinner

The caffee has a historical elegant over decorated shiny part served by waiters and a standard self service bar with plastic tables and chairs for tourists. There is usually nobody in the former and you get the impression that only service is in the modern bar. The toilets also do not match the elegancy.

White table cloths, beautiful setting, and mint cappuccino! Very different and so good! We also had a plate of delicious cookies. It was raining, and this was a nice stop before we toured St. Anthony's. I liked hearing about the history, also.

I was told that this was originally the cafeteria for the university students. It is beautiful, good service and good food.

They have a special luke warm coffee with cold cream and mint on the top of cup. It was interesting for one time but strange. Cookies were good.

Again read the history before you go which will put the location and purpose in perspective. Try the iced-coffee to which my wife becomes addicted on every visit.

I used to visit this historical place each time I passed by Padova.AND THIS WOULD BE MY LAST TIME. we arrived for an aperitif at 7pm, the staff very unfriendly showed us how unwelcome we were. In a very arrogant way, a brunette waitress asked us to pick our glasses from the bar as they were all busy! We paid... More

We had to experience this Paduan institution because of the reviews we had read and because of the history associated with it. I wish we had just looked at the decor. The service was slow and surly and the coffee was terrible. It's a nice and interesting building but don't go if you're a coffee lover.

Sought out this on a visit to Padua. It was easier to find than I thought from the station and the expectation was as hoped. You dont get many coffee shops that look like this and I had to try the special pedrocchi coffee! Most unusual coffee but well worth the experience. Not the cheapest place but very good. A... More
