“Fine Dining in Padova”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

We recently ate lunch at this restaurant. We came as collectors of Buon Ricordo plates, which almost always leads to a good meal. The speciality dish here is a first course of tortelli with baccala (dried and salted cod) which was very enjoyable. I also had a mixed seafood and vegetable fry which was excellently prepared. My wife had the branzino (sea bass) which she also enjoyed.

The service was good although the owner came to chat and kept talking most of the time we were eating our main meal which we found somewhat disconcerting. We were seated in the outside area under cover which was quite noisy being next to a busy road.

In summary it was a great meal but we were a bit disappointed by the ambience.

“A professional setup, well worth a visit”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

This is a hundred yards or so from the Plaza Hotel, and we didn't want to walk further after a long day. This was a very good decision. The staff are real "old pros", and there is a front area and a more formal back area. The food was good, with outstanding first courses.
We would go again.

“What a find”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

We happened across this restaurant on a Wednesday late-afternoon stroll and its setting appealed to us, so we went back around 8pm and were lucky to get in. The charming, personable, elderly, multi-lingual maitre d’ made our meal an experience from start to finish, sitting as we were in the covered terrace area, near the door. His menu recommendations and local wine suggestions were 'spot on' and our excellent meal was delicious. The very numerous, well-trained staff provided service not often experienced outside Michelin-starred restaurants. As the evening wore on the restaurant became ever more busy and more buzzy - many guests obviously regulars - without any perceptible effect on the fantastic service. Quite an experience and highly recommended!
