We've been to italy a lot, even lived in Rome, but this is our first time in Padova. Stumbled on this restaurant and the menu looked interesting and innovative so we checked it out on Tripadvisor and went based on the good reviews. The food was indeed wonderful and the restaurant itself was lovely - we'd return on that basis... More

The food at this restaurant is truly amazing. If you are looking for fish then you will not go too far wrong eating here. The staff were very helpful and the decor very good. It is a bit pricy but you won't be disappointed.

I have had a dinner with a couple of friends in this restaurant. The location was fantastic (a round table in a round glass-mezanine with silk-tents all around). The privacy was great. Other people was there but i'm sure that every one seemed to be alone. The food was excellent (Doge appetizer, venetian codfish, rise with "something red" and more).... More

I loved the freshness of the fish. My husband's fritto was spectacular! The ambience is beautiful but little dark. Not cheap but the quality has a price. We will return for sure.

We were on holiday in Padua and arranged to catch up with friends that live in the city. They organised dinner here because they had read good reviews and wanted to try it out. The interior of the restaurant is very stylish and the good impression continued with the service and food. The stars of the evening were sea bass... More

There's something very persuasive about an upmarket fish restaurant in Italy, especially if it's only a few kilometres from the sea. The fact that this restaurant offers only seafood on its menu merely reinforces this. Expectations then, were high. A couple of our starters were very fine indeed. Baby squid with avocado and avocado cream was excellent. A seared scallop... More

Great place to have a nice romantic dinner. Very modern inside. Food was fantastic, service was very friendly and mindful. And it is off the beaten track, so loud tourists are nowhere to be seen - mainly locals frequent this establishment. Highly recommend!

On arrival we were greeted by several waiting staff all very smartly turned out, shown to our table with beautiful linen etc. it promised a lot. The food was okay, my scallops in a curry sauce were completely tasteless, and my husbands mixed fish dish was dull and uninteresting. It was quite expensive I total.

Hello! Meanwhile, thank you for your review. as regards the scallops curry can hardly be without flavor even just for the curry that envelops. the mixed fish that ate her husband did not doubt taste, or rather, perhaps without the two bottles of wine might have had a chance to get the taste of fish and maybe he also avoided...
