“Good spot for being taken for a ride...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2011

I am from Padova and I had dinner once at the Hosteria Cambusa, together with my mate. My girlfriend and I know many taverns and restaurants in town, enough for being able to identify where good food can be found and make reasonable comparisons.
We were the only people in the venue that evening. We were served by the owner. The food quality was disappointing. Our order included grilled steak. Although we clearly specified we were going to have a small grilled steak plate, we were served the large one (which was good for 4 people). The quantity of steak was excessive, the bill was high. Had quality been good, at least it was worth.
In fairness, our impression was that the owner wanted to take us for a ride to make up for the small revenues that night. You can imagine how tourists are likely to be treated there. I have no doubt in advising not to go to Hosteria Cambusa.

“Family restaurant with talented chef”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2008

This small restaurant was recommended by our hotel. It is located in a small street at the center of old Padova, between Piazza del Frutta and Piazza Cavour. Nicely decorated with photos of the chef and several Italian celebrities. The chef himself presented us the menu and advised us on what to choose. Food was simple, good and inexpensive.
