We enjoyed a wonderful meal here on Prato Square. They have a nice air conditioned area with a great view of the square. Service is formal. Loved the eggplant appetizer. Gnocchi, orrechiette and spaghetti were delicious. Salad was bland with tomatoes that were not ripe and grilled vegetables tasted burnt. Would repeat the meal without the salad or grilled vegetables... More

Nice location over looking over the central square / park. The food was good and the restaurant populated mostly with local Italians.

Delicious, creative cuisine on one of Europe's loveliest squares in a very nice glass enclosed pavilion on that square - What could be a better dinner? Service was excellent, wine choices quite good: our selection for the evening, Notte di Galileo, was one of the tastiest wines we had during our entire one-month trip. Widely varied menu with many typical... More

Lovely place right on the central park. Not cheap but I tell you the best food in town. Try the fettuccine al ragu made with duck or the cannelloni. Not cheap..but lots and you only need a main and if you are thin a dessert. Prosecco is cheap and local. Must go!

Great restaurant under the colonnaded pavements of the Prato della Valle with views of the oval, even at night, with the Xmas lights up, from the 'outside room'; fortunately, in December it is enclosed and heated. Fabulous Melanzane di Parmigiana, great fettucine ragu, a thin steak that my eight yr old daughter polished off very happily and tasty lamb cutlets.... More

This restaurant was recommended by the hotel's receptionist. The food was very good especially the stuffed zucchini flowers and lasagnetta asiagio. It seems to be a favourite place amongst the locals which is always a good sign and I recommend booking in advance. We did that when passing by in the afternoon and it was good we did as all...

My wife and I stopped here for lunch and were very pleased we did. The outside setting provided an excellent view of the Prato on a beautiful day. The food was delicious and the service excellent. This was a lucky find as we wandered the streets of Padova.

We walked up to the Trattoria al Pratto without reservations at 20:00 on a Sunday night when all the visible tables were full, a recipe for disappointment. We were greeted warmly and they made up a separate table, equally elegant except for being closer to the walkway than the others and not having the same view of the Piazza Prato... More

The Hotel Belludi (highly recommended) suggested this restaurant when I was there in March and I liked it. I went back in August, and loved it. Beautiful location on the edge of the Prato, pleasant service, excellent food. It is a little expensive, but not for the quality and the service is quiet and competent. I had a glass of... More

We both enjoyed the best meals of a two-week trip to the Veneto at this restaurant, recommended by our hotel. If we weren't embarrassed to reappear, we would have gone there for dinner for a third time! Try the ricotta-stuffed zucchini flowers and the gnocchetti with shrimp and pistachios. Paradiso! We also savored the sun-dried tomato topped tuna—a very generous... More
