Nice family-business-restaurant just a bit outside of the touristic area, not far from the main train station. Reviews do not lie: one of the best place for dinner found in Padua. Great service and great, fresh, local food, a must. Random selection menu....I love that.

Went for lunch. My first course - tagliatelle al ragu was the best example of this dish I have ever tasted. Everything that followed was first rate, and there were a couple of decent locally brewed beers to accompany the meal. Service was prompt and attentive and the bill was most reasonable. One for a return visit.

The service was above and beyond, as although I was with a local who translated some of the menu items, the owner came to the table and translated the ENTIRE menu into english so that I would be able to make an informed decision. The food is exellent, from the antipasto (I recommend the "nido de polenta con porcini"!), to... More

We had opportunity on having a relaxed business dinner with colleagues at Al Fungo. The staff (family) was very attentive an informatively explained all the dishes in the daily menu to us in English. Awesome mom cooked, son and father served. Very lovely food. Especially horse beef was deliciously prepared. Also the fungi was perfetto.

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
