Visited Padua in September 2014 with my wife and three others. We were looking for a restaurant that was close by the Best Western hotel that had good food. The person at the front desk recommended Al Fungo and it was great. The restaurant is located on a quiet street off the main avenue. We walked in to a very... More

The food was very tasty(we tried three types of pasta and we liked all of them, also the desserts were awesome). As for the service, the owners were very friendly and always smiling.

Looking at this restaurant from outside, you will not beat on it nor you could imagine how nice it is to have a dinner there. I have been working here in Padova for 4 months now, and had no idea, even if very often have walked in front of it. This night the inspiration to test it, and the surprise... More

I was part of a group of 17 adults on an art trip to Padua and were looking for good authentic local cooking. we found it in this wonderful friendly restaurant. it is the sort of place gone out of fashion in Italy, a true family run trattoria, plenty of choice, beautifully cooked (by the mum), they accommodated us with...

not a huge menu…the place is rather simple...but a huge quality and service! fresh pasta with meat sauce, horse meat or beef, fresh vegetables…great wines… the cooking is dome by the mother and service by father and son! should i return to padova…definitely my culinary headquarters! aaaahhh…last but not least… value for money is exceptional!

I've never reviewed before but this restaurant warrented it! I was visiting Padova for work and staying nearby. I ate at Al Fungo on my first night and then tried other restaurants in Padova, but Al Fungo was by far the best and I had to return. The menu changes daily, but the food is always superb! Alessandro speaks very... More

The restaurant is close to the fair, but a little bit hidden on a closed-end street. It is nice, the typical Italian Trattoria. It can improve a bit by replacing the cool-white bulbs that are disturbing the nice interior. The service is very good, all the dishes are well-explained and detailed by the waiter. We had two local dishes, one... More

We discovered this wonderful trattoria because it is situated next to our hotel. The food was superb, the service was superb and the pricing was quite affordable. A lovely eating venue which we visited many times during our stay in Padua.
