We were in Padua for one night only. This restaurant is in the town, opposite a large car park, so no problem parking. It is only a small restaurant but was very popular. We were lucky to get a table as we had not made a reservation. Food delicious. Staff helpful and we did not feel rushed.

We were searching a nice place to spend my birthday, so we chose the restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews, and I must say our expectations were not let down. First of all, the terrace is very beautiful and perfect for a summer dinner. The staff is very friendly, they let me change the menu a little bit and have a... More

Recommended by the hotel staff we headed east for this very nice restaurant. There is a terrace for sure, but not open du to the rather chilly evening. The ground floor part of the restaurant is rather small, but you'll be amazed to see how many guests will fill the tables. We had no reservation but were a bit early... More

Like other goofy Americans, we went looking for restaurants before many of them opened. Hungry at 6:30, we stumbled on this one, but the owner said that he didn't open until 7:00. So we were forced to walk through the Prato della Valle and enjoy the fountains before returning for a great meal. While we stuffed ourselves with two primi's... More

We were in this restaurant in seven people at about 19:00. At that moment restaurant was almost empty (there were 2-3 guests) but I suppose that later it would be full. Food was nice and served in the same time, although we ordered various meals. Service was good, except very poor english abilities of the personell. Anyway, we communicated using... More

My husband and I enjoyed lunch there today. The service was very friendly and the food amazing. We had the shrimp in "saor" (Venetian dish), black pasta with octopus, bigolino pasta with duck ragu, seafood salad, and topped it off with the Prosecco gelatin with berries. We will definitely return!

Stumbled on this restaurant close to where we were staying. Best meal we had in Padova. We have very limited Italian but the Owner/Manager was really helpful explaining the menu. Food and wine were excellent and representative of the region.

No menu but the owner tried his best in limited english. The food is top quality. Very good ingredients, excellent service, reasonable prices. Wine list available and generous. I would... More

I've been living in Padova for 8 months and was so happy to stumble upon this restaurant. It's not in the tourist area but is at the southern end of Prato della Valle on a side street. Luckily we know some Italian because there was no menu; they recited everything to us in Italian (though I'm sure they would provide... More
