We go there every time we are in Padua. Have always had a great meal, the food is packed with flavor but simple in execution.

One of the best tagliata in town. Cozy, nice, tasty. Right choice for dinner night. Try Lillove wine from Cannonau grapes.

I have been eating Sardo food on the island and at different other locations in Italy. Here it was a mix of local and Sardo. The Sardo dinner consisted of 4 relatively small courses. Acceptable, but certainly not our favorite in Padova.
