Stumbled on this little gem for lunch. Lunch is a self serve counter with a variety of dishes to suit all tastes. Ambience is great, staff friendly and helpful, food very good and prices almost unbelievable after four days in Venice. Dinner is a la carte.

Good service, good selection available between local dishes, classics and pizzas. Nice atmosphere and if you are in a rush, it is possible to have dinner + dessert + coffee in less than 1 hour! I love the special try they have for the sweets. They come with it to the table to display all of them. It makes the... More

The hotel recommended this restaurant. Why would they do that to someone they don't know and couldn't possibly bear s grudge? I had better cafeteria food in high school. Yes, this is, at lunchtime a cafeteria. In Italy.You get a tray, slide it down a bar, and pick your poison. Two of us had tagliatelle ai (chewy) funghi,limp cauliflower, (canned?)... More

Typical food from the area, good list of wines, the local has a cozy feeling although it is quite big, every foreign friend I've taken here to dine has been impressed with the quality of the food. And I myself used to like this place a lot, before discovering I was celiac. Nowadays I hardly find anything to eat to... More

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
