“Skimpy Scampi”
Reviewed 26 June 2012

The scampi must have been on a diet. Not much there, there. On the other hand, the owner took time to ask how the meal was. So maybe if I had ordered another dish, it would have been better.

“nice restaurant but not much room”
Reviewed 9 November 2011

We had excellent pizzas for lunch here. Very popular with locals. I would go so far as to say they preferred local business as we were two English people and the service was just OK. I would return!

“Good pizzas”
Reviewed 8 November 2011

Ate here at lunchtime - good selection of pizzas with generous toppings. Pleasant surroundings and efficient service. Handy location if you are walking in the centro storico.

“Recommended but only alfresco”
Reviewed 28 September 2011

Recommended if you eat outside in the Piazza dei Signori on a warm summer evening otherwise you will have an average pizza in rather dismal surroundings.

“What a show!”
Reviewed 17 September 2011

My husband and I stopped into this resturant while strolling around Padua looking for a place to eat. It was around 6;30 pm when sat down in the charming front dining area. We ordered pizzas and were quite suprised when one of them came out looking like a flying saucer! It was coverd with with crust and domed at the middle. Both pizzas were delizioso. As we were getting to the end of our meals the waiters start picking up the tables and chairs around us and taking them outside. We thought it very entertaining but didn't have any idea what was going on until after we left the resturant. We discovered that all the resturants moved their tables outside of the now deserted market area so people could dine outside under the stars. It was a beautiful sight although very crowded seating. We were unaware of this nightly ritual. Also what we were unaware of was that they do not bring a bill to our table. As we waited for the bill we kept getting these looks and the waiters and waitresses kept grabbing things off our table. We finally figured out we were not going to bring a check to the table, that we were to go to the counter where the bill was prepared and money collected. As soon as we got to up to do this two waitresses pounced on our table and wisked it outside. We had no idea that while we were waiting for the bill they were waiting to take the table outside. I am sure this is common knowledge to most of you but to those that are unaware, this will be very helpful information. All in all it was a wonderful experience, educational and delicious.
