A fairly uninviting cafe, though photos of some of the rooms look good. Nothing special, really......

The definitely must do thing in Padova is to drink a cappuchino in Caffe Pedrocchi! It is so classy and elegant! A perfect sample of Italian culture! I loved it!

Alas we found this cafe totally lacking in charm. We also found the waiter rude and the service slow. We arrived at 11:45 AM and the waiter refused to take an order of a salad and sandwich before 12:00. So, we took a tonic and coke and received a bill of 11 Euros. Whatever historic value there was in the... More

Dear Customer Thank you for sharing your experience with us to Pedrocchi Caffe. We are very sorry that this latest experience was not as exciting as you expected. In fact, the restaurant and buffet open at 12,30 Italian time, as Italian style, but the reaction that the waiter had, in any case, was not fair against your request. I would... More

In the Caffe Pedrocchi's salon one can 'touch' history. On the one hand one can feel the gentility of the clientele who must have frequented its portals at the turn of the 19th/20th century and on the other the intellectuals and radicals who frequented the Caffe during the time of the Risorgimento - even down to a bullet hole in...

OK, so you buy in to all the reviews, history an stories about this place and go with expectations set high. However I found the event to be lacking behind what we (in all of Europe) can expect from a decent café these days: Club Sandwhich was (too) small, dry and without the proper curry dressing, coffee+cake and drinks ...ok...

Best butties, perfect pastries, brilliant Sunday brunch, totally excellent Tiramisu. What can one say about Cafe Pedrocchi that hasn't already been said? Great service, top location, a thoroughly good going-on. A must do.

Years ago, Pedrocchi stunned me with its splendour. Sadly, those times are over. Yes, it's a historic landmark. It's a beautiful neoclassical building. It can be even considered a miracle that in the 1830's a sumptuous palace was built just to accommodate a café. I know only one similar example: Café Gerbeaud in Budapest. That, of course, is much younger.... More

Place full of history. Also named "cafe without doors" because it used to be (till 1916) open night and day. One of those places where for centuries intellectuals and prominents have been meeting. Here several plots for Risorgimento - the movement for the unification and independence of Italy, from 1848 to 1870 - have been laid out (in 1848 Padua... More

Probably the most disappointing place we visited. We had an aperitif outside and the place was rather dirty, with pigeons dominating tables and chairs. Probably better to stay inside.

Very nice antique cafè. It is a must go, may just for a coffee at the bar to have the possibility to look around.
