We were in a small group, perhaps 8-10 people when we went for dinner to this unusual place. It is small, just a handful of tables, so it fills up quickly. It is overstuffed with decorations that cover all the walls, hang from the ceiling and actually take up a lot of the scarce real estate. The waiters had a... More

We were early, no reservation. This tiny restaurant was recommended to us by our friend from South of France. Since we were early, they have us sat outside with our Brunello that the owner recommended. He decanted it, they brought some appetizers. Upon tasting the wine , it was bad, I asked the owner to taste it without discussion, he... More

There is no doubt that the food we had (Fish, clams, mussels) was very good. Same applies for the wine that fit perfectly. The location is very special, a lot of candle light, privacy, small tables, a LOT of decoration, very nice at Christmas time. The owners are very nice, the other guests as well and for sure Il Padovanino... More

This small restaurant is really cute! It is amazing the care that was put in choosing all the details from the table cloths to the candles, the frames on the wall etc.. The menu is really interesting: a quite long list of very original plates, each of them made with excellent ingredients. Everything we tried was excellent. The wine list... More

I liked everything they cooked. All was special made by the excellent Chef. By the way I was invited at a dinner organized by friends living in Padova.

Well it's the first time I have eaten in a stage set. There was hardly any room on the table for the food. The decor verges from spectacular to high camp. The menu is indulgent, expensive and really not that good. But judging on the popularity I would recommend that you book in advance. Certainly an experience.

I recently had an enjoyable dinner with a business colleague at Hosteria Il Padovanino. I found this restaurant from the very positive reviews posted here on TripAdvisor and I am pleased to add my review to the list. The restaurant doesn't look like much from the exterior; however, once you step inside, it's a whole other world! Beautifully decorated with... More

We've just returned from The Veneto and were recommended here by the Hotel Camp Spa. A great recommendation; superb food (€100 plus wine) for three courses and coffee. Beautifully "dressed" surroundings and table settings whilst the food really was perfect. A joyful evening, thank you.
