“Caring service, delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

I had dinner with two friends at this lovely restaurant. The waiter was very helpful, and directed one of my friends away from the lasagne, but towards something more delicious - the gnocchi. I had the julienne of asparagus, and the sea bass, and both were really great, fresh, delicious, and a lovely change.

Padova is a great place, not so over-run by tourists as Venice, and the owners of this place truly care about your dining experience, and want to win you back. Great time. Highly recommended.

“Top quality and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

A formal business dinner in 5, which quickly turned into a pleasant "soiree" of chats and laughs thanks to good food and good wine, suggested by the expert personnel. The (double) menu is rich by itself, with meat and fish to please any wish. The "Sformato di zucca su crema di Gorgonzola" was a surprise, as well as the simple but tasty Branzino with potatoes. More, we were offered to taste something special out of the list: delicious, tender grilled porcini mushrooms. Will come back soon, also because of its location: just 5 mins walking from the very center, zona Piazze, and close to the big Parking of Piazza Insurrezione.

“amazing branzino”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

On the Corso Milano. Black and white enclosed and cooled outdoor seating. Elegant but not stuffy. Very helpfull maitre'd. Interesting salads and the most amazing preparation of Branzino. Large round thin slice almost covering the plate, prepared with cherry tomatoes and herbs in a very hot oven. Sweet tasting and tender beyond words. We dined early but a little later most of the guests were locals which attests to their quality. Very close to the Plaza hotel.

“Stylish service and first class food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

We went to this restaurant with some Italian friends from Padova, and they were obviously well-known to the Patron, who had organised a special menu for us - mainly fish. We were truly spoilt. Check out the photographs near the bar - the Patron with the Pope and with the Formula One racing driver, Riccardo Patrese.
