True 3 Michelin star gem!

Flawless experience. As an Italian, proudly recommended. Of course expensive, but in line with the restaurant's level.

An understated entrance through the adjoining cafe-bar belies the elegant warmth of the restaurant behind and its modern design. The staff were more than professional and added so much to out enjoyment of the evening - even offering a 'magic' trick or two. The superb cuisine kept to Italian theme, but added some unique takes. Great wine, grand cru stemware... More

Exquisite experience. Stylish and elegant setting, yet relaxed and nonchalant atmosphere at the same time - combination hard to find especially in haughty Northern Italy. Alajmo plays with your senses, creating dishes that trigger emotions and memories through smell and taste.

We went here for lunch. Restaurant was a 15 minute drive by car from our hotel near the Basilica of Saint Anthony in Padua. The outside of the restaurant gives no hint as to the simple but elegant interior with dimmed lighting and hand carved tables, that have a hollow in the middle of each of them, that contains a...

For the last 20 years I had been searching for a restaurant that would really make me out of my senses. Le Calandre really does it . We took the traditional menu, and dish after dish you get more surprised. Service is perfect , good wine has a reasonable price. But I cannot really express what it is to be... More

Each dish was prepared and served with culinary professionalism and precision. The notable dishes on the classic tasting menu were the marrow bone, the steak tartare with truffles and the lavender egg dessert - simply sumptuous! This is fine dining at its best.

Sophisticated, stylish and yet relaxing Expensive yes, but there were no surprises, knew this before I came. I was a solo diner so don't enjoy meals normally by myself - for this reason, I only chose a limited number of dishes and this was probably my mistake. I actually didn't like the dishes chosen, e.g the spaghetti but feel I... More

It is always hard to make sense of reviews for Michelin star restaurants. Just as I am looking for very different things if I am paying for a 5-star hotel to a quick B&B stay-over, I expect more when going to a 3-star restaurant with corresponding price tags. This is one of the best restaurants I have been to, but... More
