The host really loves his job !

The place is comfortable, the service is good even when the place is packed up, and the host is very"simpatico" and looks after all clients! Not particularly impressed by the food.Wine list is good. Will go again.

hotel said best in Padua. Not last night. Octopus starter was great, then went downhill. Asked for fresh white asparagus, which large stalks were centerpieces on many tables.. Told not possible... Eggplant Parmigiana was average at best.. way too much cheese for me. I could not eat it. seems they forgot to cook my entree... a pork filet with little... More

Located in a very lovely space a short walk from the pedestrian zone, I had a partly good meal. I began with asparagus salad, which really had no taste, even after I put on salt and olive oil (it'd come undressed, just thinly sliced). This was followed by a delicious green lasagna. The owner is a gentlemanly host.

We returned after 3 years to this excellent restaurant. We were welcomed as if we were very regular guests. What a difference it makes if the staff are friendly and communicative. The owner recommended a fine wine at €13.50! It was excellent and made by a small cooperative which supports the reintegration of drug-dependent persons into society by offering them... More

the food might not be the best in Padova, but the combination of good food, good ambiance, very friendly host, and good wine makes it one of the places to go. If you you are a F1 fan, then it's a must.

There are several menus available and our waiter was most apologetic that we had not been given the special Baccala (salted cod) menu. He then enthusiastically took us through this menu and on his recommendation we tried starters and main courses from it, along with some reasonably priced wine that he also recommended. Overall a lovely experience in a nice... More

if you would like to spend an evening and enjoy a meal I believe that place is good for it. The service is good . In menu you can find as local dish as usual Italian. The price is not so cheap for that city but absolutely acceptable if you compare with Roma or Milano. Quality and taste of dishes... More

Our family of four (two teenagers) recently ate here. We had a pleasant meal, service was efficient (without being particularly friendly) and food was fine, but nothing special. I had a chicken dish and the quantity was very small. Boys were happy with their pizzas.

As collectors of Buon Ricordo plates I was glad to be chosen to be the one to have the tortelli with baccala (dried and salted cod) which was very enjoyable and my wife the gnocchi di zucca chich she she enjoyed as well. Both dishes were very enjoyable and the service... More

I ate here alone, and was well looked after. Beautiful breads arrived along with a glass of wine when I sat down. I had the local fat spaghetti (Bigoli) followed by a large escalope of veal and chips despite the fact that octopus, aracini, osso buco etc were on the menu. The restaurant has a Vespa as part of the... More
