“Great venue - poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

This bar/cafe was recommended to us and the entrance and interior were impressive. Prices appeared reasonable too. But the service was poor - getting the bill was difficult - we'd booked a time slot at the nearby Scroveni Chapel - so settling the bill quickly was important - it took about half an hour even with repeated requests. Our glasses of prosecco were spot on, but our friends had some fruity drink which was 'orrible. Food wise - you got exactly what you ordered - no added salad. Would research and seek out alternatives next time despite opulent environment.

“A must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012

This historic café does not need any introduction. It is not just a café. It is part of Padova's history and heritage. Just have a look at your tour guide. You cannot visit Padova without dropping into Caffè Pedrocchi.

“largely overrated”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2012

Having read much about it, we decided that this caffe was a must-visit in Padua. A bit on the expensive side, it is probably a nice place to just have a coffee (try the Cafe Pedrocchi, if you like a bit of mint flavor in your coffee). We were a bit hungry so everyone in our group ordered a panini. What we received was a pile of an odd number of sandwiches on one plate, the quality of which was quite questionable. The service itself was average, and it is amazing how dirty a toilet can be in such a nice and famous place!

“Feel what coffee was like 100 years ago”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2009

A famous spot for great coffee since the early 1800s, still manages to preserve the service and atmosphere with relatively reasonable prices.

Gives you a taste of what life at a coffee shop was like generations ago.
