Description: C'e anche un tavolo che sembra sospeso nell'aria, avvolto in un velo. E' il piu richiesto. Poggia in realta su un soppalco di cristallo creato dal progettista- designer Riccardo Tognazzo per rendere ancora piu glamour il locale di Riviera Tiso da Camposampiero. I Navigli non e diventato il locale dei "vip" di passaggio a Padova solo per queste singolarita architettoniche: Massimo Biale e la moglie Elena Bernardi hanno costruito la fama del locale puntando soprattutto su una cucina di alta qualita. Basata su materie prime (in prevalenza pesce) ben selezionateThere is also a table that seems suspended in the air, wrapped in a veil. And 'the most requested.

We had a wonderful corporate dinner, and the fish assortment was great. Also perfect for couples as the piano creates a very romantic atmosphere.

This place has a somewhat Hollywood-like ambience and targets the well-to-do guest. It is well known for its seafood. Service is efficient and friendly. The dishes all lack sophistication. The portions are very large, and it is clear that quantity here trumps quality. We rated the food as standard, average fare, would have expected more imagination and character and more... More

Meanwhile, thanks for losing your valuable time to review, my restaurant. I'm sorry that your written assessment does not reflect the opinion you have expressed verbally. with regard to the criticism, the restaurant is not nouvelle cuisine and the amount of standard Italian pasta reflects the portion that is 80/100gr of pasta or 250g of gnocchi.all the more so since...

Our hotel recommended Ai Navigli to us as a nice little seafood restaurant. Total understatement as it was one our best meals we have had in Italy and we have been here a month. I would, without hesitation, recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a departure from the regular fare.

I bumped into this restaurant by chance while walking in the streets of Padua during Winter Holidays. I was not disappointed: the seafood was absolutely exquisite and prepared in an original way. It was comparable in freshness and quality to the best seafood I have eaten – I come from a seafood producing region in Brittany, France. The wine list (mostly... More
