It's worth visiting just to taste the infamous Scampi di Mario... A super umami dish that explodes in your mouth like a firework... I have never eaten anything like it, it is simplistic in appearance and taste, but still mouthwatering and bringing you memories of...More

Beautiful little restaurant at the port. Outside or inside dining are offered. The food is excellent! Service is great! We feel that although location and menu are similar to others, Pado does it better and with more flair.

Dear 367xavierv, thank you for choosing Padò. Italian restaurants normally offer starters, called "antipasti", which are smaller in size with respect to "primi piatti" (first main courses) and "secondi piatti" (second main courses), which are quite abundant. For that reason it is normal not to...More
