Let's start with the restaurant. The interior is beautiful and dimly lit even for lunch, which is just much more flattering ;) The service was fantastic. Ok now let's get to the good stuff, the food. I did a vegetarian version of the classic tasting...More

We tried Le Calandre in Rubano, Italy a few days ago. This is a 3 star Michelin rated restaurant. I have never actually eaten at one before, so this was a good way to start. We decided to go with the Classic tasting menu -...More

While searching for restaurants in Venice, I stumbled upon Le Calandre. After consulting with my husband, we decided to make a special trip to Padova just for the experience. It truly was an experience. An ultimate birthday celebration for my main man. The flavors. Wow!...More
