I had the opportunity to visit Caffe Pedrocchi several times during the last few years. It's a classy spacious place, great for a hang out, aperitivo, or some food.

For the Easter Sunday, we had lunch there in the terrace. Slow but friendly service, the food is not as good as expected but I agree, hamburgers that we ate are not the Italian culinary highlight. Indeed, il caffè era buono.

We dropped into Caffe Pedrocchi for some light refreshments on a visit to Padua. The beautiful building is very strategically placed & visible from many angles so it's very inviting. We ordered some wine & coffees & had some light bites to accompany & we were not disappointed! It's a little pricier than other establishments around Padua, but so worth... More

An institution that is declining - nice decor, beautiful space. we've only ordered coffee, and received the house "special" coffee - without asking for it. Appearantly it costs 5,00 a cup...nevermind being offered it - might have went for it - but in this way we felt fooled...

It is always full of people, Padova citizens, specially on Saturday and tourists. It offers some drinks, coffees and nibbles.The prices are suitable. If it is crowed you simplky can not find any free table to sit and rest after loong walking.

On our very last day in Italy, having been to Venice, Ferrara, Bologna, Verona and Padua, this place literally left a bad taste in our mouths. We were spoiled by the friendliness and welcoming manner of Italy up until this point and we were taken aback by the utter rudeness of our waiter. He looked entirely put out by the... More

This cafe is very nice. A bit on the posh side but very good. We had some small pieces of different cakes and they were very good if a bit small. But not too expensive. Also the staff is friendly and helpful.

We purchased the Padova card and has access to all the historic rooms. We followed Rick Steves' walking tour through the cafe. We enjoyed the Cafe's Piano Nobile and the small Museum of the Risorgimento which traces Padua's role in Italian history. We didn't buy anything but we enjoyed the ambiance and tour of the cafe.
