I often take customers out for dinner in Padova and I must say that this place is always very much appreciated not only me but also by my guests. Simple things, well prepared and served right at your table: a great recipe for success. This together with a nice bottle of ripasso and you are in for a great evening.... More

From the street, one almost doesn't notice this restaurant. But the food is very good, although a bit pricey. As the place is small, it is convenient to make reservation.

Wow! This place is amazing. Real Italian interior and bustling all evening. Never seen anything like this before. Super host who cuts and cooks your meat at the table. Our fillet steaks simply melted in our mouths. Other clients had strips of fillet simply cooked directly on their hot plates. If you like steak (beef) then this is not a... More

We had an unusual steak at this restaurant. The "Chateau briande" is not flame cooked in mushroom and brandy sauce. However, a really good cut of fillet is cooked on your plate before your eyes with suitable Mediterranean condiments on the side. The prices compare with other good restaurants in the vicinity and we will definitely pay it another visit... More

The tagliata mista is a must! It comes with an entree and it's cut from fresh meat at the table, so good! The staff is very gentle and ready to make a change on one plate or anything else! 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻

We had a wonderful late lunch at this family owned ristorante. We were the last customers that day. As we were finishing, the owner and staff all sat down to lunch themselves. Good food. Goo times.

One of the best dining experiences during our trip! We went based on a recommendation and were not disappointed. We opted to let the owner select our meal for us. The highlights of the meal were the risotto, which was served from a hollowed wheel of cheese and the beef-- sliced at the table and cooked in front of us... More
