Small, but cosy. Very well appointed and reasonably priced. While the menu is not overly adventurous, it has all that you might want in terms of classic trattoria fare. Super service, friendly waiter. Would go back and the good reputation is well deserved!

Very gracious service, excellent food. We enjoyed the polenta and frittata appetizers, both small but very tasty, tagliatelle and penne with carciofi were both very good as was the tagliata. The desserts were fine as well. Would eat here regularly if we lived closer.

My husband and I love this type of restaurant. Can't experience this type of dining in the states. So, we seek out the family owned trattorias that are off the beaten path so to speak. Not always, but it seems the best ones are down a crooked alley or off the main drag. Delicious, fresh dishes usually typical of the... More

We stumbled on this restaurant whilst wending our way around Padova. Our first two choices of restaurants were unfortunately closed. How pleased we were when we were greeted with a smile, shown to a table with spotless china, silver and glassware and lovely handwritten menu. The bean soup was excellent as was the prosciutto and fig. All the mains were... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the server at the Gelateria Romana around the corner - it was our last meal after a week in Italy. Saving the best for last. My husband had freshly made pasta with mushrooms, which he pronounced as excellent and I had the tenderest veal with tiny slices of zucchini. The server was adorable... More

Based on reviews, we made a reservation at this trattoria. Even though it was 20:30 we were the first people there, and only one other group came in while were there. Just one waiter for the floor, but only about 8-10 tables. He was very good, well informed, and knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. The service was very... More

This restaurant is worth a visit to Padova. This was the best food we had during our 2-week trip around north of Italy. Make sure you order fettucine fresche to understand what pasta should taste like in a good restaurant. Pasta in other places (most of which are pretty highly ranked on tripadvisor) did not come even close to this.

My fiance and I spent one night in Padua this past March to see the Arena Chapel. I had broken my arm and wasn't feeling well and we decided to treat ourselves to a nice dinner since it had been such a rough weekend. We asked the manager in our hotel to recommend someplace, and he suggested we try Trattoria... More
