On arrival we were greeted by several waiting staff all very smartly turned out, shown to our table with beautiful linen etc. it promised a lot. The food was okay, my scallops in a curry sauce were completely tasteless, and my husbands mixed fish dish was dull and uninteresting. It was quite expensive I total. Despite the initial greeting, the... More

Hello! Meanwhile, thank you for your review. as regards the scallops curry can hardly be without flavor even just for the curry that envelops. the mixed fish that ate her husband did not doubt taste, or rather, perhaps without the two bottles of wine might have had a chance to get the taste of fish and maybe he also avoided...

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
