Be prepared for a very busy place where everybody is in a hurry. Only one person speaks English (the owner, I think), but he is busy serving the speciality of the house, which is beef. We had pasta (in fact we wanted to have some antipasti as well, but we were shown a selection of pastas from which we each... More

Restaurant has a large interior section as well as an exterior area with a terrace and a balcony overlooking the canal. We had not made a reservation but nevertheless were shown to a table on the balcony with the canal below us. This was a great outlook but the downside, which we were to experience later, was that you were... More

really nice location and set up in the center of Padova, on Via Umberto. We got a table on the balcony with flowers over head, and it was great drinking good local wine while surrounded by locals having lunch and chatting. The risotto is excellent, but then we noticed what the locals are ordering. What you really want to do... More

If you love meat and you are in Padova you must come here. I highly recommend the house special which has 3 courses: 1) spanish sausage 2) risotto from a cheese bowl 3) the most amazing steak and meat you will ever eat The wine is very good, and the price is great (around €25 a head)

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. Also, do not miss the experience of having your steak cook right in front of you on a hot plate, perfectly tender... More

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
