Only trouble was we could not remember what it was called. Not surprisingly trying to google ‘Italian restaurants’ in Padova was not very helpful. Then, a thought. We... More

The food is amazing all made in house. Get there around 8 for the first course. the second course consists of multiple carts one with roasted meats, and bolito. Worth the visit.

For the uninitiated , Bollito misto is a display of mixed boiled meats served on a trolley from which you may choose what cut of meats you wish to have... More

The service was good although there was very litte in the way of "English" assistance, which is fine... More

Food was delicious and staff was extremly frendly, nice and polite. We had pasta and meat for dinner but for antipasti we had the best prosciutto and salami and some salts that were delicious. It was remmendation from our friends who live there and they go there all the time. Definately would go there again when I m in Padua

The restaurant is very big, but classy and stilish. Wonderful choice of wines, appetizers were very tasty, but roasts and bolied meat are outstanding. Enourmous choices, perfect cooked, all served with an impressive service. Very good prices, it's totally worth any penny paid

By far one of the best meals I have had in a very long time! They do a first plate of pasta, which was very good and for the second course it was a meat cart, they bring out multiple different kinds of meats half of which is grilled to perfection and the other half boiled. I was kind of... More
