The venue is very attractive, the staff is very, very good, the owner is there and very personable. The food is marvelous but about twice what we could hope to eat. Everything was outstanding pasta, beef, antipasto, dessert, wine all superb. It made an otherwise ordinary weekend in Padua memorable.

We spend a weekend in Padova, it was raining non-stop for days. On Saturday night, following suggestions by fellow travellers, we stopped by “Vecchio Falconiere” for a dinner. The rest is history.... We had most wonderful dining experience, starting with pasta, followed by excellent Fiorentina steak - one of the best we ever had (1.2 kg) personally delivered by lovely... More

Ate here on our last night in Padua..it had an outside space by the river but we were so disappointed with our pasta dish..dry , hardly any salmon. My friend had a glass of wine but wasn't asked what were available by glass.

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

It was a nice surprise! really close to St Antonio Basilic, the place is very charming and italian and food is very, very nice! Must pay, but if you feel happy and you enjoy what you taste, that's ok!

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
