Last week we were biking from Bolzano to Venice and we have made a stop in Padova.
Visiting this restaurant was a gastronomic experience. Mainly due to the owner -
muhmed - who is a man with big heart which made us fell like visiting his private home.
The pasta in this restuarant is freshly made and was one of the best in italy; don't miss the nyoki with smoked ricotta; absolute fantastic.

The main reason for this recommendation is the meet. Mohamed cuts it in front of your table
and serves it on hot ceranic plates. Just tell him how do you want your meet to be done.
We ordered several types of cuts varying from Bisteka fiorentina to more dlicate tagliata.
All marinated with olive oil and Tuscan seasoning before being served - perfect.
Comparing to the famous "Ristorante Il Latini' in Florence - This is better.
So, if you are in Padove or in the neighborhood don't miss it - it is worth a detour.

We visited Padova and Vecchio Falconiere while on our honeymoon, on recommendation from an Italian friend. We were certainly not disappointed! The food was delicious and the service fantastic! Mohammed quickly identified we were not locals and made our experience particularly memorable. We were made to feel so welcome - He carved our steaks in front of our eyes and provided us with complimentary entrees. At the end of our meal, he gave us delicious almond biscotti and dessert wine. On chatting with Mohammed about the tasty biscotti and meat seasoning, he proceeded to give us a whole new bag of biscotti, plus a bag of his secret 14-herb-mix to use on our steaks at home (luckily this was okayed by Aussie customs on arrival home!). An awesome experience that cost us no more than 40euro each!

Yet another delicious meal in this fabulous restaurant. If you like meat and a good atmosphere with great staff this is a restaurant for you.
Fixed menu for 40€ is great value for money for the quality and quantity of food you enjoy...

I was in Padova for Business, and went for a business dinner at this restaurant. I was seated in the backyard since the actual restauarant was fully booked (this was Wednesday), so book if you re going there. They have a 40€ menu worth trying, starter beef tartar and some small sausage followed with a trio of pasta. The primadonna however was the meat, sliced and cooked on the side (see pics) amazing taste and seasoning. A full plate of meat worth the 40€ just for this plate alone, the Chianina was the juiciest. I had mine rare. All ended with a dessert (would have preferred a homemade version but the cakes and pannacotta were good). I highly suggest this restaurant to anyone visiting padova. The house wine offered was also of excelent quality..... And while in padova dont forget to have a spritz ;)
