We spent one night in Padova and wanted a quick bite. Found this place and since we both love octopus got one to share. Really delicious and tasty sauce which you lick off with bread. Also watch they guy prepare the Pulpo. Its really interesting.

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
