We were recommended to try Dal Capo so off we set. It is a small restaurant, all seating is inside.

After two weeks in rural Sicily, I confidentially informed our kind waitress we would be ok with deciphering the menu; much to my companion's annoyance, I could not. The food is 'inland' style, mostly meat. We eventually settled on wild boar salumi anti-pasti with duck ragu pasta to follow for one of us and the other having pasta with clams and courgette. Both were very good. We then shared the rabbit main course. Our 7 year old had the tomato soup (which came as a surprise as it was cold but he enjoyed it) and then the chicken with potatoes: a rustic dish, full of deep flavour which he enjoyed.

By now, I had given in to the waitress' suggestions and we shared a fabulous, memorable, fig cake (so good, I wish we had not shared) and the ameretti semifreddo covered in chocolate sauce.

The wine list is limited but the house carafe was very agreeable.

We left full and happy for just over €100.

Recommended if you fancy hearty meat dishes and a great fig pud.

We liked the look of this little restaurant and it's small menu. Only a couple of tables taken when we arrived and the tables for two are of a decent size. The waitress was eager to translate the menu even though there were only a few things we could not understand. She did the same with another non-Italian couple later.
We ordered a salami to share to start only to have a free plate very similar brought out as a gift. We like to order each course separately to avoid service being too speedy. This was obviously a problem here as we were constantly being asked for our next choice. I eventually had the clams and courgette with pasta. Good but prefer the clams in the shell. Bread was good as was the house red wine. The boar bigoli was very nice. 50 EUROS In total.

Reastaurant - good location, we had bean soup, fish and pasta, fish was good, pasta and soup average, problem was with menu, they had only in Italian and there was quite lot of people, so not much time for staff to explain ecen they could speak English, otherwise ok.

We came for lunch to this nice restaurant in the heart of Padua.

The place is small in traditional Italian style and service was very friendly, helpful and made us feel home.

Food came quickly, had great taste and intense smell of herbs - a great experience!

The owners came and asked for feedback and offered free Limoncello on top - yummy!
