Very good freshly boiled octopus with herbs and pesto in Padua. One of the best places in Padua for getting street food (rather than a restaurant).

This was my eighth trip to Padua and finally I got to eat at La Folperia. A mixture of wimpishness & poor timing are my excuses. Well now I know what I've missed, delicious fresh seafood. I picked three from a large selection of freshly cooked dishes and got our wine from the neighbouring bar. Two more trips for refilling... More

A food cart in the market square (Piazza della Frutta) in Padova which we kept going back to every time we are in Padova. Boiled octopus, fried calamari, fish, soft-shell crabs (depends on season), crab cakes, baccala mantecata and some other seafood were simply wonderfully marvelous! Our favourite is always the octopus which we will sometimes order two servings. Can't... More

I found this place on Tripadvisor and it is indeed one of the food places you must try out! It is at a corner of the market area, and it opens after 5pm. There is a wine bar next to it, grabbing some of the freshly cooked seafood plus a glass of wine is the best combination! The squid is... More

The best fish I ate in Italy in a year of living and travelling through it. Affordable for fresh fish and absolutely delicious, fresh and unique dishes. Try everything! The staff are kind and always remembered my face.

Enjoy the feeling of outdoor socializing, pre-dinner drinks and appetizers with a stop here at a great little stand. Order the crab cakes, grilled peppers, baccala mantecata, and of course an octopus. Comes to ~€8 euro per person sharing a few dishes. Also grab a drink (spritz) from a nearby bar and you'll have a great time!
