My husband and I frequently choose Ristorante Vecchia Padova when eating out in the area. It's a family run place and one of the brothers (?) who own it is always there. Their artichoke rissoto, steaks and pizza's are some of our favorite dishes here. Portions are large. There is something for every price point and the staff is prompt,... More

We were staying at the Hotel Eden on the same street and stumbled across this restaurant after a tiring day of travel. The decor is lovely, and we were impressed from the start by the friendliness of the staff - in particular Maurizio who was very attentive and was able to recommend good food/drink suggestions, and also put up with...

I went there with a rather big group of colleagues. The service was very friendly and efficient. We ordered different dishes starting with a mixture of their antipasti and followed by pizza, seafood, meat ... Everybody was quite satisfied and for me it was the best meal I had in Padova. The decoration is quite original: old radios, cash registers,... More

The restaurant is great, staff is really friendly, food is excellent. Maybe prices are a bit above the average, but it worth the money. We had lots of sea food there, which is excellent. At lunch, the restaurant is packed with locals, full of life. This is a genuine italian restaurant with genuine cuisine.

Nice atmosphere, honest food and prices. The service was kind of stressed but ok. If you are like me and hate to eat and wach TV at the same time, there is a room at the right from the entrance, where you can enjoy your meal without the moving images. The past was excellent! Unfortunately they don't serve just a... More

The risotto with seafood was great... and it is a very large place for big groups...in the city centre!

Good cafeteria style restaurant that serves typical Padovan/Venetian food in downtown Padua, Italy. Reasonably priced and good quality.
