The food and service are good. As well, the environment of the place allows for a calm dinner 🍴. Menu is written in padovanian dialect.

Really enjoyed our meal at this unpretentious and atmospheric restaurant. Service was friendly and helpful and the wonderful smell of cooking stimulated the appetite. Excellent value wines to accompany the meal. Lots of locals and very busy by the time we left-having been the first to arrive following a late visit to the cappella deli scrovegni. We booked which was... More

The name cannot be translated by all mean, and I doubt I'll be able to put in words the whole nice experience I had, so bear with me as I'll try my best. We found this place walking by the narrow streets of central Padua. I don't even recall how we arrived here, in this little alley. From the front... More

Unchanging eclectic restaurant serving regional and local specialities. On the Sunday evening we visited we were the only English people there - always a good sign - and if we had not booked we would not have had a table. Friendly helpful service and delicious food - the hard part was reading the menu and recognising the dishes! But with... More

A Must do culinary experience in town. Forget about michelin stars, fork and others food guide standards. Here is genuine traditional local cusine that you will find. Simple hand written menu, that change according to seasons. Excelent wine selection in an unique atmosphere. Better book a table on week ends.

We arrived at this place by accident has hit us very nice and the atmosphere. We savored and enjoyed typical Venetian dishes revisited with imagination.Great wine.but the host ... is not exactly unfriendly, but not friendly either. Quite aloof on the verge of being unpleasant.

I came to this restaurant through a friend while visiting Padova. A rather warm atmosphere - like eating at your grandmothers house - with a delicious cuisine. The menu wasn't that big, but everything we ordered tasted good and above all it wasn't your typical tourist-attraction-food. The house wine we got was exceptional too. I have to warn those interested... More
