The food was average (we were 5 persons eating different things) and if you look at the final invoice including drinks and coffe it was rather expensive per person but.... it is in the historical center so... Outside the center any trattoria will offer better food fot r less money

The restaurant was empty, we were the first customers for the evening. The waiters were not interested to great or serve us - they were chatting , so finally we got a waitress who brought an Italian menu. We ordered "spaghetti alle vongole" as we couldn't understand the menu ,for the children - spaghetti ( one with ragu and one... More

We were recommended by a local. And the result is amazing! The restaurant is cozy, comfortable, wide. Very kind staff, and fast service. Dishes are special, and relatively cheap. One minus is that the menu is only in Italian. But have a dish from every page and you're completely having it! Highly recommended.

Dirty bathrooms, rude waiters and ordinary food is what you should expect from this place. It is cheap but definitely doesn't worth the price.

This restaurant is set in a complex of old streets quite near the Via del Santo in the south of Padua's old city quarter. The menu is extensive and offers a range of food from the traditional Italian (lasagne, pizza) to slightly more unusual dishes. The wine list is also good - a medium range restaurant, popular and offering good... More

Stumbled on this little gem for lunch. Lunch is a self serve counter with a variety of dishes to suit all tastes. Ambience is great, staff friendly and helpful, food very good and prices almost unbelievable after four days in Venice. Dinner is a la carte.

Good service, good selection available between local dishes, classics and pizzas. Nice atmosphere and if you are in a rush, it is possible to have dinner + dessert + coffee in less than 1 hour! I love the special try they have for the sweets. They come with it to the table to display all of them. It makes the... More

The hotel recommended this restaurant. Why would they do that to someone they don't know and couldn't possibly bear s grudge? I had better cafeteria food in high school. Yes, this is, at lunchtime a cafeteria. In Italy.You get a tray, slide it down a bar, and pick your poison. Two of us had tagliatelle ai (chewy) funghi,limp cauliflower, (canned?)... More

Typical food from the area, good list of wines, the local has a cozy feeling although it is quite big, every foreign friend I've taken here to dine has been impressed with the quality of the food. And I myself used to like this place a lot, before discovering I was celiac. Nowadays I hardly find anything to eat to... More
