We arrived in Padova hungry on a cold rainy afternoon in April. As the rain grew heavier, Pe Pen looked moreover than inviting. We ordered a couple of salads and a pizza. The salads were huge and fresh, a meal in themselves. The pizza was good but not great. The service, however, was fast, friendly and welcoming. The pizza would... More

It's a nice cozy place, right in the center. We found it by accident and were very happy about. The food is very nice, Tuscany-like in many ways. Very noticeably better than what they serve in the nearby Venice, and cheaper as well. Try chef's pizza, tiramisu and pork.

A quick hit'n'run visit to Padova. A short stroll along the streets of old town, topped off with a more than decent bite to eat at Pepen.

An unbelievable selection of pizzas - we had the carbonara and the diavola - both delicious!!! And reasonably priced! Not to mention a litre of really great house wine 9€?! Amazing! Not the most welcoming atmosphere and as we stayed quite late I felt the staff wanted us to leave, but I enjoyed it nonetheless and would definitely recommend

This is a well-known pizzeria in the downtown area of Padua. The place is small as many other in this are but unfortunately badly smelling of fish. The pizze are nothing special and somewhat overpriced. The device is good.

This is a very little place in the heart of the city, located very close to the famous Caffe Pedrocchi, in a small way. They deliver some very good italian food, at dinner and lunch, and pizzas too. Friendly atmosphere and smart people for an excellent experience.

We found this place by chance. Great outdoor seating. It is a pizza place, but has a very large menu.

We ate here several times the week we were in Padova. The service and atmosphere were great and some of the food was outstanding. Very friendly service. We loved the stuffed gnocchi and their vegetable/seafood selection is wonderful. Near the entrance they have a bar with all sorts of dishes you can pick from for appetizer/dinner. There are several types... More
