Little gem in unexpected place

We went to Al Fungo by TA recommendation and because it was near to the Best Western Galileo Hotel. I called half hour before and on a monday it wasn't so busy. The reception was very good as the host went out of his way to translate the whole menu. We had a worderful meal, the best to date in... read more

except for one other table, every diner was a local. Father and son came out to greet everyone, and the pasta and chicken was delicioso!

Al Fungo is hidden away in a side street. From the outside it is forgettable. Inside, the decor is average.......nothing special. But sit down, order a meal and go to heaven. The food is just so good. The atmosphere is genuine Italian. This is not a tourist restaurant. It is where Italians go to eat great food. The service is... More

The food and the entire dinner experience were so good that we went back for lunch the next day. This is a small friendly family-run restaurant with a pleasing rustic atmosphere. For dinner, we had bigoli with duck, tagliatelle with mushrooms, grilled lamb chops, and an excellent wine recommended by the waiter.Cost €65 Every dish was very goog. The next... More

Friendly family-run trattoria with enjoyable food. All mushroom dishes were superior with the freshest, most aromatic ingredients. We very much enjoyed all aspects of our meal. For me, it's worth going back for the tortelloni con porcini.

We loved this restaurant well enough to go back twice! It is a familyrun trattoria that specializes in mushrooms but everything we tried was delicious! The first time we had only a primo (tortelloni con noci e porcini and linguini con le sarde) and a dessert that was out of this world! Patavino scuro was recommended and it left us... More

The menu didn't look to unusual at first but the food was quite good with excellent flavors and ingredients. As the name suggests, any dish with porcini mushrooms was outstanding.

Went here as it was the closest choice for a restaurant close to my hotel in north-east Padova. This your true italian family run experience and you can expect both the up- an downsides of the place. The son has true ambitions and knowledge (and speaks english), but the food is native uninspired and basic. Polenta+shrimp. Beef+rocket salad, pasta+sauce. But... More

We had a wonderful meal at this intimate restaurant. Tucked in neighborhood, only one street off a busy road, you will enjoy the quite offered at this family owned establishment. So glad the front desk personnel recommended it!
