The food is always good, but not out of the ordinary for Italy. It is a very cool experience, especially if you are from out of town. Find a table, set it, order your food and take it back to your seat. Very inexpensive and more than worth the price for a great experience.

If there's one place you've got time to go to eat in Vicenza, then it has to be Righetti, located on the square near to the Duomo. Consisting of numerous, relatively small interconnecting rooms, Righetti has a varied and very reasonably-priced menu, including starters, main courses, deserts, wine, water and coffee. Although called self-service, you specify your dish at the servery which is then handed to you. The restaurant works on an honesty basis in that customers pay at the end, listing what food and drink has been consumed. Note that Righetti is extremely popular and getting there early (say 12 noon) or after the lunchtime rush (eg 2pm) might be advisable. Because of the ordering system, customers often reserve their places with coats etc as well as placing paper placemats and cutlery/glasses (available in each room).

We were surprised to find a "Serve Yourself" restaurant in Italia. We went inside and got in line for our delicious soup and pasta. Found a table outside and went back inside to get our drinks.
The food was good, the atmosphere was great!
It is all on the honor system. We paid after we finished eating. Nice to know that is still an option in the world.

A special place in Vicenza on the square near the Duomo. good local food though the "Bacala à la Vicentina with Polenta" was a bit too local for me. What makes this special is the very peculiar self service system : you choose every thing, from starters to main courses to desserts, drinks (water, wine on tap) in the order and time you want. There is no receipt or anything, and you only go to tohe till to pay when you leave, and you say what you had. It thrives on honesty, but it is honest in its offer also. recommended in quality/price
