Stylish, inventive food

The welcome is nice, the vibe is young, the wine selection is deep and there are really u unusual options, like a combination of tuna, duck and cabbage, perfectly balanced. Portions are on the small side but quality is high.

We arrived early as we were traveling with a one year old and they were ready with a high chair complete with pillow, place mat and plastic cutlery for her. I had a prawn appetizer and my husband had the mussels in rosemary and olive oil. Delicious. For dinner I had a fried platter which came heaped with shrimp and... More

Went for a dinner with a coworker, got last two seats in a restaurant and it was Thursday. Took tasting menu and tuna/duck afterwards. It started great and it kept getting better and better. The wine was Friuliano (vigneto storico - old vines), very unique and splendid wine. The proprietor is a wine lover and that passion really shows. The... More

We were on a business trip to Padova and our suppliers asked me to choose a restaurant, no pressure since they employ 1800 people in this stunning Veneto city! This occasion was truly memorable the owner Pino was magnificent. We had candied celery, vanilla Olive oil, sage lemoncello and Ancona Rose frizzante - I beg you to check the menu... More

I arrived late in Padova and near my hotel I chose this wine bar. Service was very friendly indeed and food was perfectly fine though not outstanding. Tuna tartare with black rice was good though he rice was a bit too hard for my taste. Then some sepioline which did lack some salt in my view. Wine was good and... More

The tasting menu is fantastic. High quality fish, generous portions. The paccheri and spaghetti dishes were both fantastic. The entire menu was very unique. Our server was very pleasant and helpful. The prices were very reasonable for the high quality. I would have paid at least 30% more for this meal in NYC. I highly recommend this restaurant.

There are a lot of good happy hour options in this part of town, but I like Enotavola for the nautical atmosphere, friendly staff, cheap drinks, and complimentary snacks. My husband and I spend 5 euro for 2 spritz, and they provide chips as well as bread with salami.

I cannot comment the cuisine, I had wine only on a late winter night. Selection and price were fair, nothing to be excited about but more or less in line with what you can expect in this type of wine restaurant.

Visited for the first time on a Tuesday evening. A good sign was that it was almost full, unlike neighbouring restaurants. The set price menu was great value and the meals were delicious, well prepared and pleasing to the eye. Lovely service, lovely ambiance. I really felt at home, the whole experience was special. Good job Pino and Gaetano!

What a find! Do not miss it. I am from the States and have a heritage that is 100% Italian. I make a lot of my own sauces, pastas and ravioli, but Pino the owner and head chef were fabulous.. The food was outstanding and the presentation was fabulous. This is a small and intimate setting with very friendly staff... More
