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. Despite the initial greeting, the... More

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...

This place has a somewhat Hollywood-like ambience and targets the well-to-do guest. It is well known for its seafood. Service is efficient and friendly. The dishes all lack sophistication. The portions are very large, and it is clear that quantity here trumps quality. We rated the food as standard, average fare, would have expected more imagination and character and more... More

Meanwhile, thanks for losing your valuable time to review, my restaurant. I'm sorry that your written assessment does not reflect the opinion you have expressed verbally. with regard to the criticism, the restaurant is not nouvelle cuisine and the amount of standard Italian pasta reflects the portion that is 80/100gr of pasta or 250g of gnocchi.all the more so since...
