Visited for lunch during a day trip to Padua. The restaurant has a local rustic charm and the hosts were welcoming and great throughout. Sadly the food was not as good as others we have had in the region. We had local pasta dishes and wine - and the bill was reasonable. It seemed the focus was mainly on the... More

The place is kind of small, so you may want to make a reservation. And quite simply: have the meats! The bison of Alberta will be prepared by the owner, in front of you, sliced thinly and cook on one side by placing it on a hot plate. And sprinkled with olive oil. I have never experienced a tastier, softer... More

We went to this restaurant on the recommendations from trip adv. Certainly different from other restaurants,if you order meat, owner of the restaurant will prepare it in front of you on the hot plates that waiter brings to him all the time. Food was nice, do not expect a varied menu, their main dish is beef.

The relatively old style place is well compensated with amazing selection of meet. You absolutely MUST try the "tagliata di manzo". See pictures. All of it prepared in front of you. You choose the meet , the owner himself cook it on a steaming hot plate and spice it. We had only that and it was amazing. Worth the effort... More

The restaurant is ideally located in the centre of the town close at walking distance from the main attractions from Padua. The decoration is a bit old and simple but comfortable. The food served is mainly composed of different kinds of meat grilled a few pastas and one risotto. Everything we tried was average. The wine selection is more interesting.... More

the restaurant is fine, nice wine, nice waiters and nice food. but none of these things makes it excellent. they have some fun things (risotto served by the table in big parmegiano casks) and kids are very welcome. but overall impression is that they could do better

Amazing restaurant! We travel extensively and this is by far one of the best restaurants ever. The owner cooks table side on a grill. The meats were the finest Italian beef, California prime beef and bison from Montana, USA. The sides were awesome and beautifully prepared. Do NOT miss this if you are in Padua.

Thank rjzapo
