First thing, this place is difficult to find! But completely worth it once we arrived! My husband and I walked in and were surrounded by only Italians-a very good sign. The owner was very friendly and explained everything to us since they didn't have an English menu. And we just told him to go for it and bring us his... More

A colleague proposed to visit the restaurant, and I am glad we followed her suggestion. Don't miss risotto al radicchio in forma di parmiggiano, which is risotto with radiccio, which gives a purple color to the rice, and is presented in a head of parmesan cheese. Simply delicious! Quick and professional service, reasonable prices. I will definitely come back.

Four of us came for lunch , I have a feeling the lunch menu is different from the dinner menu because it was quite limited in my opinion . That did not detract from the experience , the menu was mainly pasta and meats . Thankfully there was baccala on the menu so our non meat eaters could have some... More

This place really stands out in Padova...after having been taken there by a local, I have returned more than five times. Admittedly I have not personally tried all the dishes, but the selection of meat cuts which are cooked on a plate in front of you are probably the best thing I've eaten. The wine is delicious, the restaurant itself... More

I went for a meal here with 2 italians, and we all loved each dish we had (including one of the best truffled risotto dishes i've ever had, and some great meat!) Great evening, and will definitely head back when next in town.

Second visit to this place. Food is excellent, a bit more than most restaurants but the quality of meat is wonderful. I recommend the mixed plate of meats that are cooked on a hot plate at the table. The carpaccio is so soft and juicy. Menu turistica is also good if you want to share . We organised my sons... More

The ambiance, the service, the friendly owner, the mushroom pasta dish, the meat extravaganza plate, even the local bottle of Cabernet. Yum! Definitely Go here!
