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.

"The coffee house without doors", that how they call it, as students can go inside and discuss about everything even without eating nothing. The prizes are high, really high. But go to the bar. Ask for a "caffè pedrocchi" and with 2.5€ you'll have one of the best coffee experience of your life

Perfect spot for a pre dinner cocktail. Beautiful bar, with much history - though, the bar feels a little run down. €6 for a spritz was an excellent price, but was surprised to be served a 3€ bottle of water when I had asked for a glass - perhaps my Southern roots, but a glass of water should always accompany...
