It was recommended by our hotel owner as very near by, as a place with a tradition of over 40 years. The street where it is located was a bit scary for us and we hesitated a bit before walking in. More and more clients started coming after 8.30. The menu pretty small, but the place looks very stilish, the... More

Had similar poor experience as Christel from Seaford. We didn't speak Italian and were not made to feel welcome. A number of items on the menu were not available and what we ordered didn't come as described. The staff were sarcastic, rude and unfriendly. Based on this experience, would not recommend.

This is a true Italian restaurant and most of the clients are local. The staff are passionate about their food and might not be appreciate the Italian-ness of the place. The grill is amazing and the food that comes off it is truly wonderful.

This was on a list in our hotel and so encouraged by an English menu outside we went in... and were ignored by lady behind counter busy setting out the bread. One table already eating. The menu came eventually .. and she started to cross everything off speaking rapidly in Italian and we were very confused by then. We asked... More

Fabulous place near the Hotel Patevina. Good selection of pastas, meats and antipasti but no English menu. We had a raw artichoke salad, carpaccio, cantaloupe and prosciutto, broglio with tomato and eggplant and a bottle of Prosecco. We went back the next night but had less to eat ... pumpkin ravioli, tagliata, and a bottle of wine (54 euros). None... More

Luckily, we found this restaurant after searching all day. Our hotel Patavium had recommended this trattoria nearby. It is a family-style restaurant, very busy and cheerful. We shared a fabulous Bistecca Fiorentina with a simple local wine.

We just had one of the best dinners in Italy, thanks to Antonio our waiter! Yes, that's correct Antonio was very accommodating and help us navigate our way through the menu. At Antonio's recommendations we tried the appetizers which were delicious. My husband ordered the roasted rabbit, which he enjoyed immensely. Our son-in-law ordered the lamb with radicchio which was... More

The restaurant is simple and cozy, with a large outside terrace. Good home-cooking, limited wine selection and friendly staff. But, the grilled (BBQ) meats are what you should eat here. Delicious.

We were treated to a delightful lunch at Tratoria Mario e Mercedes before our tour of the Scrovigni Chapel here in Padua. The grandson of the owner saw to our needs and the food was fresh, innovative and delicious. We ate in the beautiful outdoor terrace, shaded by the vines, and, when it grew too warm, the automatic cover was... More
