The unromantic surroundings have been often commented upon, but on the other hand it is easy to find if you drive on your own, and easy to park. We were not sure we would make it, so we made no reservation. We got a table (indeed, three were to chose from - on a Thursday late evening). From the greeting... More

My third time here has been (once again) a wonderful experience. Service is very professional without being overburdening. Food exceptional. We went out for the big menu with wine pairing - very good. personally I would like to see a bit more reds with the wine pairing, but this seems to be a general topic of discussions. nonetheless, I was...

Arriving at Le Calandre is like landing in a heaven of tasteful tables lost in the midst of in the tasteless suburbs of Padova, trucker stops, warehouses, suburban bars and low end discos. Nothing pointing to the imminent disaster. Nothing other than my own prejudices. “You shouldn’t waste your money in 3 stars in Italy, Italian food is only good... More

When you go to a place that is ranked in the top 25 or so restaurants in the world you sort of expect to be a new person when you leave. That's certainly been my experience at other highly rated restaurants (Osteria Francescana, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, The Ledbury, etc.). I thought Le Calandre would be memorable also, but alas,... More

I shall never step foot into this overrated, stuffy, mediocre place again. I don't mind spending $400 for lunch, but I do mind if the food is pretentious and doesn't deliver on any level. I was so disappointed, expecting something special. All we got was arrogance and airs and dressed up pasta I could get anywhere in Italy. Never never... More

The food is undoubtedly very creative and the products are of high quality. The service is very professional. The prices are compatibly high. The only comment is regarding the final bill; we ordered 2 glasses of prosecco, the waiter out of his own initiative filled our glasses once we finished drinking it. We were very surprised to find out that... More

How did this get to be the number 4 restaurant in the world and earn three Michelin stars? The service and presentation were excellent, the food however was mediocre. One expects so much more having read the great reviews. My trusted source, Andy Hayler loved it, but this time I must disagree. It is not the price, although a $600.00... More
