My son and I visited this restaurant, which was recommended by our hotel in early April. The meal was fine but the restaurant lacked something in atmosphere, maybe because it wasn't very full. Didn't rate it as highly as the Osteria del Fabbri which we...More

We found this place by luck, the reward stickers (on the backdoor crystal) were impressive. We have been served twice by the owner; impecabely and elegantly dressed, attentive and welcoming. We were lucky to find seats. One of the very few owners who obviously and...More

The first time we ate at this wonderful restaurant was on an early summer evening. It was too early by Italian standards to have dinner and the gentleman that greeted us was very formal so we were a bit scared to enter the beautiful courtyard....More

You wouldn't come across this place except by accident, tucked away as it is on a side street leading from the Fruit Market. We first found a door covered in promising labels of recommendation, but it was locked. Walking round the block, we found the...More

We were wandering around one night in Padua looking for a place to eat and came upon this place. It was a fantastic find. We sat outside in the courtyard and enjoyed a fine meal.

Bacala (salted cod) is a local specialty in the Veneto. We had eaten it in Vicenza, where there were small bits of cod "swimming" in a sauce. But at this restaurant in Padua, the cod was whipped and swirled and was quite delicious; the polenta...More

This restaurant was one of 4 restaurants in Padua recommended on the New York Times website and is also contained in the Padua Tourist Information guide to restaurants but it was truly awful. It looked great from the outside, has a very smart website and a menu which sounds really special but the meal we had last weekend was probably one of the worst I have had anywhere. I feel people should know!
