Among tons of restaurants and bars, this was different. Appears to be a stand up and order seafood place. Tables nearby. Good variety and not overly expensive.

i got there about 8:30 pm on weekday and they were sold out :(. No soup for you! It is something worth knowing about. Too bad i did not.

Dear Client, We hope you know that La Folperia is very famous because we sell fresh fish food. When our fish food is sold out....we are sorry...but our day of work is finished. Best regards, La Folperia

I'm not sure about the time/day that this is open but if you see them just grab something here because it's awesome. Grab a spritz nearby and drink it together with some "folpetti" you will be in heaven. Highly recommended!

Octopus! It's thrilling to see how it is taken out of the pot, cut, seasoned with some green basil pesto & oil sauce and served - all a matter of 35 seconds or so. Great mastery and great taste. We've also eaten small snails. There...More

We had a Thursday night dinner so it wasn't terribly busy. The location is great but this is not a restaurant. Folperia is a normal street food stand. The octopus was not bad but bland.

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).
