English speaking chief meets you with a pleasant smile, but does not pay you a little bit more attention that he intended initially. Simply speaking, choose quickly or go away. Cucine doesn't make us happy. Small octopus appetizer was not tasty, gallina padovani insalata was no more than average. Grilled sea bream from Venice Laguna was tasty because it is... More

The actual name of this place is Antica Trattoria del Paccagnella. We've been here three times in two trips to Padua and this place never disappoints. This is not a tourist restaurant and the chances are good that the waitress won't speak English. But, with help from one of the owners we always end up with a superior meal. This... More

I started going here in 2004. I lived three summers in Padova, 2004, 5, and 6. I would write friends about it as I sat (alone) and ate these pastas with tiny squid or shrimp. When I was in Venezia in 2012 I returned two evenings in one week. I can remember evenings with friends from Padova and US. Cesare... More

We were there with friends and could not decide what to eat.there were several great choices. Waitress suggested sharing. They set up a small table beside ours and brought three plates . We then shared a little of each on our plates. We then each had a secondo. The rabbit,liver and lamb chops were fabulous . We were given clean... More

We went to the restaurant with two friends from the USA. From the beginning the service was bad. We receive little food, two little steaks without side dish. We come out still hungry and for this bad service we paid more than 70 euro. Nevermore.

great little restaurant with helpful owner and waitress. Food beautifully presented, fresh quality ingredients. Nice cosy little restaurant with small bar. The owner will ensure you drink good wine at an affordable price. A gem of a place that you might otherwise walk past as the frontage is small and unassuming. the melanzane starter and my husbands calamares was delicious.... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel, the wonderful Belludi 37 and were delighted to find it. It is a typical family run Italian restaurant, with good food, good wines and a very helpful english speaking owner who explained the dishes to us when our basic Italian faltered. the owner used to live in London so his English is...

Recommended by our hotel we spent our second night dining here and would have gone again only the place was closed for the rest of our visit due to 'technical problems'. A little bit 'upmarket' (in delivery rather that price) we had an excellent meal and the owner was quite amusing whilst still remaining very professional. Out of stock of... More

Trattoria del Paccagnella is a serious eatery with minimal signage, well worn but well maintained surfaces, and very simple facade. Staff are friendly but you are there to eat and they are there to feed you. We were greeted warmly but not effusively and shown to a table. We had reservations but wouldn't have needed to on a Wednesday in... More
