Nice situated in sentrum with a very fine outdoor eating area. We reserved in due time and came 15 minutes after the citchen opened. It took approximately 1 hour to get the food. Reasonable tasty, but unfortunately the meat dish was served far too cold....More

Sirs, we’re sorry you did not enjoy enough our place. For sure we are not a “fast food” at dinner time, and as the kithcen opens at 07:30 pm perhaps you did wait too long according to your expectations. About the staff for the next...More

Nice place, nice food, nice wine, ... The waitress was not so welcoming and smiling, hopefully the waiter and the boss were in better mood otherwise it would have been perfect. The price is in line with quality and service.

A small corner of Italian cuisine and good wine, just a few steps from Palazzo della Ragione, the University of Padova and Giotto’s frescoes in the Scrovegni Chapel. In the historic center, a place to rest, taste a cocktail, and enjoy every week a live Jazz event. A private Court of the 13th century where you can join your friends or hold a meeting. An elegant but informal location, surrounded by the history of a city which has been a European cultural lighthouse since 1222. The perfect place to experience an exclusive and discreet Padua.
