This is in all the guidebooks, and historically, it's important, but I would try and avoid spending much money there. It's kind of expensive and a bit snooty, and with so many other nice places to go, why bother.

This was our first stop when coming into Padua. A wonderfully decorated and historic café with impeccable service. We stopped for a few drinks and nibbles before heading off to walk around the city. It has a relaxed atmosphere and the waiters were very attentive despite being extremely busy. Fantastic for people watching!

A visit to Cafe Pedrocchi was on our to do list for a day trip by train to Padova and we enjoyed our coffee on the terrace and a quick glimpse inside to the elegance of a bygone time in one of the oldest cafes in Italy. A pleasant break in a busy day of sight-seeing.

I would like to warn people that I was pick-pocketed on the 20 minute tram ride from Santo to the Padua train station. I am vigilant in protecting my belongings but these thieves are professionals that do this... More

Here at the Caffe Pedrocchi, you can taste a genuine and rare atmosphere of one of the most ancient cafeteria of Italy. I've been in Padova several time in my life but only few days ago, thanks to a Colleague of Padova, I've tried the Pedrocchi Caffè, which is a rare medley of flavoured, You can have the aromatic flavour...

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
