Last week we were biking from Bolzano to Venice and we have made a stop in Padova. Visiting this restaurant was a gastronomic experience. Mainly due to the owner - muhmed - who is a man with big heart which made us fell like visiting his private home. The pasta in this restuarant is freshly made and was one of... More

We visited Padova and Vecchio Falconiere while on our honeymoon, on recommendation from an Italian friend. We were certainly not disappointed! The food was delicious and the service fantastic! Mohammed quickly identified we were not locals and made our experience particularly memorable. We were made to feel so welcome - He carved our steaks in front of our eyes and... More

Yet another delicious meal in this fabulous restaurant. If you like meat and a good atmosphere with great staff this is a restaurant for you. Fixed menu for 40€ is great value for money for the quality and quantity of food you enjoy...

I was in Padova for Business, and went for a business dinner at this restaurant. I was seated in the backyard since the actual restauarant was fully booked (this was Wednesday), so book if you re going there. They have a 40€ menu worth trying, starter beef tartar and some small sausage followed with a trio of pasta. The primadonna... More

OK, I admit that I didn't have the beef, but I thought that given the reputation for that, the rest of the menu might be good. Had some gnocchi that were definitely mediocre. I wouldn't go back.

It is true that you need an appetite when visiting this truly unique restaurant! It is a feast, and the quality of the beef is really good. The menu is not easy if you don't have any or little Italian, and to be honest you don't really need it as the host and his staff look after you very well... More

We visited with an Italian relative and were impressed. This is a local restaurant so not a lot of tourists. The staff were very friendly but overworked. The food was excellent and the steak was the best in Italy so far. However , service was very slow. They did keep giving us bread baskets full of tasty break so they... More

We found this recommendation here on Tripadvisor, we watched the photographs and we decided to give it a try. And it was a blast! We already spent so many vacations here in Italy, but we never had a dinner like this. The staff was so kind and friendly, although we do not speak much Italian there was no problem with... More
