We arrived --super hungry-- attracted by a strategically located sign right at lunch time and were pleasantly surprised by the cordial, speedy service and two pizzas al kamut, bread perfectly crusty and properly leavened, mozzarella di buffala and yummy pre-roasted veggies on top.

We left happy after some small conversation with a bellissima signora --the owner-- and good espressos.

Great location, good food, decent service. If you get there early enough, you can get a table on the side of the piazza, in full view of the Palazzo della Ragione.

Arrived before restaurant opened, but owner/manager showed us to a table anyway and kept us supplied with drinks until opening time, good start! When staff arrived for duty they immediately took our order from the very varied menu. Good selection of traditional Italian dishes and then some surprising too (Chicken curry, Italian style? Didn't have it but others did and smelled terrific. We had aubergine with penne pasta, tomatoes and herbs and a chicken dish with pasta and a delicious sauce (can't remember exactly what it was but it was great) but everything was superb, a real taste experience. Staff were helpful, polite, amusing and good english. We had a wonderful evening with them and the bill was modest, especially considering the drinks included etc.

Sat outside in Piazza dei Frutti, market square, buzzing, including musicians (nothing to do with restaurant) but really added to atmosphere

Highly recommended!

Had spent a pleasant morning walking round the markets in Padova and wanted to find a place for a pizza for lunch. This place is quite central just off one of the market squares. It was about 1215 so it was empty when we walked in. It a smallish place with a number of reasonably close tables so may be noisy when busy.

The waitress spoke good English and offered us drinks and menus. We already knew we wanted pizza but there were other Italian dishes on the menu too. In the end we both chose the same pizza but the waitress persuaded us to try another one and have half and half which we did in the end (although frustratingly we both preferred the one we had original chosen). We also ordered a side salad too. We both like thin and crispy pizza bases and these were close to ideal. Toppings were good - the usual for Italy of not being packed with items like in the UK and overall very tasty. Salad was good too,though we've never had a bad salad in Italy.

By he time we had finished a few more tables were taken and had more if an atmosphere.

Will come back.
