A must for all meat lovers staying in Padua. Everything we had was delicious and done to perfection. Highly recommend the tartar, although it is difficult to go wrong no matter what you order in this great locale.

From the atmosphere (outdoor patio was beautiful) to the service to the food, we could not have asked for a better finale to our visit to Padua.

The small outdoor terrace is framed with jasmine vines--wonderful scent--and overlooks a canal. The menu is somewhat limited, but everything was delicious.

The great food was only surpassed by the exuberance and obvious pride of the owner chief. When he explained his specialty was Alberta Bison and learned we were from Alberta he "knocked himself out". The meat was thinly sliced at the table the cooked on very hot ceramic plates...it was great. An expensive restaurant but if you are looking for... More

I am studying in Florence this summer and was in Padua for a day, sick of all the panini pasta pizza and just craving some meat. This place was perfect. Cooked right in front of me, this was easily some of the best fillet I've had in my life, and I've had a lot of steak. The service was awesome,... More

We found this restaurant through Tripadvisor as we didn't know Padua at all and were staying just one night. We found it easily and initial impressions were good, a nice indoor restaurant and an attractive outdoor garden dining area to the rear. The owner greeted us and was very helpful and friendly without being obtrusive. His recommendation of the house... More

The dinner at Vecchio Falconiere was so great, that the name, the food taste and the staff attitude are still one of the most cherished memories of my visit in Padua. Antipasti and blueberry-filled tortellini with parmesan were delicious, yet the steak was the top of it all, prepared on a hot ceramic plate in your presence by your table.... More

Sunday 31st May and it was dinner at Vecchio Falconiere in Padova. Great food, nice surroundings, but the service was shocking. Fifteen minutes for a drink, twenty minutes before menu selection was ordered. And almost forty minutes wait before dinner was served.

We have enjoyed good food here, nice Parmesan risotto n spaghetti. Mr waiter was nice and friendly but please get prepared to spend long time there as we have to wait to be served, make order & get dishes on table (except check bill)
