Had a great dinner here. I had gnocchi and my son ordered horse. (yes) We were seated outside on a little bridge over a canal that was decked with flowers. Unforgettable. Everything was delicious, and a lovely person, who we think is the owner or chef came out to speak with us and ask us if everything was to our... More

We decided to try this restaurant due to the reasonably good rating in Tripadvisor. Unfortunately, once inside the waitress decided that at 09pm cannot give us a table. Restaurant was half full.

Ordered meals in Italian but they knew we were not Italian, so we were given the most disgusting service I have ever received, even by Italian standards. What should have been a realativley quick and simple meal turned out to be 2.5 hours of torture. Trying to get served between courses was like a horrific car crash in slow motion.... More

We have visited this restaurant several times and it always pleases. The staff are welcoming, the menu doesn't change, the place is always full. We ate too much, hardly their fault, but the portions are generous and good. We were offered a tartare and spicy sausage starter, then we ate the risotto with radicchio served in a nearly empty Parmesan... More

We went here last night and were very disappointed. The food was ok but the service was terrible. The owner didn't know we spoke Italian and offered the table of two Italians right next to us a free second course (after they already had their second course that they had ordered) before he had cooked our second course even though...

based upon recommendations of our good italian friends from Padova and the good tripadvisor ratings our expectations were high ( Too high?). The menu is limited however no typical local dishes neither local wines from the area around Padova ( wine list is the smallest I have ever seen). Service is friendly but superficial and "rough around the corners" (... More

I often take customers out for dinner in Padova and I must say that this place is always very much appreciated not only me but also by my guests. Simple things, well prepared and served right at your table: a great recipe for success. This together with a nice bottle of ripasso and you are in for a great evening.... More

From the street, one almost doesn't notice this restaurant. But the food is very good, although a bit pricey. As the place is small, it is convenient to make reservation.
