Got here on a friend's recommendation. Hopefully if you are reading this far in the list, you will go a little further and find your way to this great place. No menu but the owner tried his best in limited english. The food is top quality. Very good ingredients, excellent service, reasonable prices. Wine list available and generous. I would... More

The meal was wonderful; we had a 3-course meal that was done to perfection, and for excellent value.The service was excellent and the owner/manager did everything he could to make us feel at home.,even offering us after dinner drinks. We... More

I've been living in Padova for 8 months and was so happy to stumble upon this restaurant. It's not in the tourist area but is at the southern end of Prato della Valle on a side street. Luckily we know some Italian because there was no menu; they recited everything to us in Italian (though I'm sure they would provide... More

The terrace have a glance of Prato della Valle and during the summer can be nice, but do not expect a full view of the Prato or a nice atmosphere, it is just a terrace. The food is not very good, not horrible...but nothing special either. The prices are, again, average for Padua...

Out of the six meals ordered in two occasions 5 were enjoyed very much. The 6th was disappointing. The place is an upper level Trattoria, just along the main square of Padova and according to the Padovans, the largest in Europe, Prato della Valle. Generally, parking is not a problem. Last time we were there a Sunday evening, the trattoria... More

This place was recommended by a guy working at a mobile phone store and what a surprise! My wife and I enjoyed the food, service, and roof-top atmosphere so much we ended up eating there once for lunch and twice for dinner. Will not disappoint.

This was a wonderful family restaurant. Six of us dined here based on previous Trip Advisor reviews. We were looking for a restaurant with a "big screen" where my son could watch the Euro 2012 soccer final (Italy vs. Spain)near the Prato della Valle area. We walked in and found a large TV ready for the game and had the... More

We discovered this restaurant by accident after we parked our car in the same street, just off the main thoroughfare from Padua's famous piazza Prato della Valle. We looked through the window and it was appealing, as was the menu, so we decided to have lunch. Entrees were baked scallops with breadcrumbs which my husband said were the best he... More
