At few steps from our hotel we found this fantastic restaurant. We arrived after 2200 and we were served in an excellent way. The hospitality of owners and staff was extraordinay too.

The menu is limited, but the pasta and seafood is very fresh. The chef evens comes to your table to ask you if the food is good! It's located right next to the NH Hotel, so parking is easy

We visited this restaurant as it was just across from the hotel we were staying at. It looks like the owner is completely oriented on local regulars and doesn't really care about any foreign visitors that happen to come. We were waiting for the waiters...More

The intimate atmosphere, attentive service, and excellent food at this seafood restaurant made our last evening in Padua quite wonderful. This family owned gem will not disappoint. This would not be a choice for those traveling on a tight budget but is a great choice...More
