The restaurant is a little bigger inside than you expect and whilst it is a little dated it looks nice. The most important thing in a restaurant is the food, and I was not disappointed. I had the stuffed mozzarella with parma ham and rocket leaves to start, followed by the ham and cheese calzoni, both were excellent and I would recommend them. The starters here are prepared in front of you by the waiters, from a large circular (salad bar esque) table positioned centrally in the dining area which was interesting. I would certainly come again if in this part of town. Top stuff.

Cannot have better situation. Just in the Piazza dei Prato. Because it's decoration you feel in a theater with comfortable seats and spacious tables. The meals are very good, awesome steak tartar and the Panacota with chocolate.

Pros: big restaurant, so it's easy to find an available table; easy to find in the "Prato Della Valle" Piazza; the food is honest, good but not amazing; the price is very reasonable; the service is pretty fast.
Cons: the treatment is cold, polite, but not warmfull.

Zairo is a traditional Paduan restaurant largely patronized by locals. Near us during lunch was a large table of local businessmen enjoying a leisurely and extended meal and another large table celebrating a university graduation. I had a delicious whole sea-bream in tomato sauce with potatoes expertly filleted by the waiter. One of our best meals in three weeks in Italy.

There are many good places to eat in Padua, but this was our favourite.

It overlooks the splendid Prata della Valle and has a fine interior with impressive murals.

Service is excellent, food tasty and prices (by UK standards) low. Also the house wine at Euro 5.00 per half litre went down very well.

This restaurant was recommended to us by by a family member who visited last year, we in turn will be recommending it to our friends and family.
