Revisited Boccadoro after ten years, and extremely happy to see that its owner/chef Paolo and his team are not only maintaining standards, but have added another level of excellence altogether We had several starters, pasta dishes, several main courses - and desserts. Every single dish...that arrived became a conversation piece. It's kind of rare to see such consistency, creativity and service over such a long period of time - and all at sane prices. Highly recommended !More

We are collectors of the Piatti del Buon Ricordo and came here for lunch. The featured dish was “drunken chicken” served with tagliatelle in a crispy parmiggiano nest. Delicious! We also had the artichoke tart and bacala. Dessert was a heavenly apple tart. It was...a trully wonderful meal and service was excellent!More

Amazing food, prepared from scratch with local ingredients, showcasing the best of Venetian food. The service was excellent, and it looked like we were the only tourist dinning. Reservations are recomended.

The hotel recommended Boccadoro to us and I must say that the food was excellent. However, this restaurant is for locals and you will get limited service especially on a Saturday night. This place should be five star except for the fact that we were...ignored by the senior staff. Don't let that stop you coming as you will be served by their new 16 year old waiter who is keen to serve. A very charming young man, but can't help feeling that tourism or tourist guests are not important here. Manuel has a good future!More

Unfortunately I found out about this restaurant my last evening in Padova. I would have probably eaten here every night if only I had known about it. It's a pretty traditional setting and heavily frequented by locals. Ingredients are top quality and execution is highly...skilled. Enjoyed dishes featuring seasonal mushrooms and fresh seafood. Every dish was perfectly cooked. Any accompanying sauces were intensely flavorful and perfectly suited. My dessert of sfogliatelle with custard and berries was an impressive finish. Wow. If you're in the mood for a wonderful dinner, and you're anywhere near this restaurant, plan a visit. I'll absolutely be back the next time I'm in the area.More

Really enjoyed this one. Our service was impeccable and not overbearing. They had a good selection of wines and knowledgeable staff to help select one. Mostly traditional fare and prepared well. Pastas were out of this world.

First of lets say that the decor of the restaurant did not appeal to me. I thought the food would be cafeteria style and was expecting something very different than what i got. I had to taste difernt plates this where the best plates in...order of great to excellent 1. Octopus - primer platy 2. Brenzino ( not sure if spelled correctly) 3. Risotto mushroom and vegetables 4. Past with huge clam ( don't know exactly what to call it) All four plate amazing. Great desert chocolate platter five different styles of chocolate in small sizes. Great food, absolutely magnificent service. Which as we know in italy is a disaster in most places.More
