I have been to this restaurant in March 2017. I arrived quite early in the evening so the place was pretty empty, but it quickly got very busy, so I imagine you might have to wait a bit sometimes. The style is Brazilian all you can eat barbecue, with all that it entails. The staff is very friendly, the meat... More

If you are vegetarian stay far away from this place but if you love meat go there. Nice variations decently priced (even the wine)

The staff and owners are mostly if not all from Brazil. They originally opened in a more expensive and visible location then moved to their current (September 2016) spot. I am rating it a 4 out of 5 more for the food and service than the location and ambience. The fixed prices are also very appropriate. FOOD & SERVICE The... More

A good Brazilian bbq. Friendly staff, reasonably priced, easy to park, great meat (which is what it's all about).

We stayed four days in Padua after driving from San Remo, we were hungry. The Hotel restaurant opened at 7:30 PM. We like early dinners. Hotel has nothing to offer (typical Italian). The registration desk recommended Bom Boi. We drove there (slight distance from hotel) and enjoyed complimentary parking on a very well lit parking surface. Manager and staff in... More

If you like different types of meat and friendly service, this is the place to come to. For us this was the first time to eat brasilien. We definitely recomend this restaurant, although it is not the cheapest. (€ 32 buffet / peson inkl. meat all you can eat plus drinks).

The "churrascaria" Bomboi offers real good meat and overall a good and attentive service. Whenever I want to have a taste of Brasil, this is where we go. The staff is mostly from Brazil and very attentive and helpful. For a good dining experience with meat as main focus, this is the place to go. The pao de queijo is... More

Three of us enjoyed a wonderful evening at Bomboi in Padova. The restaurant is a little hidden, close to the trade fair buildings and next to the NH hotel. It is worth hunting down if you're looking for a good churrascaria. The local is warmly decorated, well illuminated and presents an atmosphere of actually being somewhere in Brazil. Even the...

What a great place! The young Brazilian gentleman owner is accommodating and gracious. On a Monday night, this place was busy (sign that it has a loyal following). The food and cocktails are good and they even have some Brazilian wines. The salad bar incorporates some Italian tastes which is nice as the Italians do a much better salad. Though... More

So bad, just so bad. The manager or the brazilian guy behind the bar is such an unfriendly and rude guy, that the best to do is to leave the beef in your plate and go home. Another wise, you may get indigestion. There is nothing worst, that to be treated like a peace of beef, while eating. Forget this... More
