Very very good restaurant with very high quality local for, wonderful wine and calm, lovely ambiance. Room is typical simple Italian style with dark walls and interesting art. All locals except us. Very accommodating and unpretentious. Wonderful bread selection. Everything delicious and well-prepared. A little more expensive than surrounding restaurants but still moderate.

In the middle of the ancient town of Padova, hidden in the small streets you will find this pittoresque restaurant. Very cosy and warm interior, looks like a living room. Prefect service but most of all: wonderful Italian and regional and typical food. Must try the ravioli di raddicchio and ricotta: best I ever ate!!! Top quality and will return... More

We went to this restaurant following recommendations we got beforehand and were not disappointed. The place itself is very cozy with lovely atmosphere. We were welcomed and served very well. We had antipasti and pasta and wanted to have a taste of the Veneto dishes. It was perfect. We drunk a very nice prosocco, the bubbling white wine. Too bad... More

We enjoyed good food, good service, and a warm, classic atmosphere. The chef was particularly friendly and engaging, and we were very satisfied with the entire evening.

This was just a disaster. The service was fine. But I couldn't even finish my meal. In fact, I had to ask for my bill, the waitress handed it to me - noticing that 80% of my main course was still on the plate - went to get the chef. I scooped up my big Belgian beer, put money on... More

I agree with some of the reviews. The service was not friendly and the coperto (table charge) was 4 euros for just some bread, although in the menu was written that I would have got much more... The food was good (not excellent though) but a bit too pricy for the quality/quantity. Wine had a good quality/price ratio. The room... More

My husband and I were invited to this place by a professor on behalf of a department of the university after a seminar. We found the place beautiful, comfortable and well located. The cuisine was fine too and the ingredients of good quality. The service was not very good, the young lady serving us was very casual in her approach,... More
