As a special treat, we got dinner at La Folperia, a freestanding stall at the far end of the open-air market. We agreed with reviewers who had raved about the seafood salad, mussels and octopus but found the fried shrimp not up to our picky...More

This is a kind of food truck in the place. Polpo is sold based on their weight, about 8E for a small one that is parfectly tender. Take your drink at the bar nearby and you can enjoy it. Highly recommended

If you are walking the squares in Padua this is a nice place to grab a seat, watch people and have a drink. So far as the food, there is nothing fancy just plain seafood like octopus, snails etc., done simply. For me, this is...More

Another super visit here. This time as Padova was dressed for Christmas. Staff and owners always friendly & helpful and will explain what each dish is. Best enjoyed with a glass of something from the neighbouring bar. See you in May!
