Friends in Padova recommended this charming restaurant and we met up for a most enjoyable Sunday lunch (it was so relaxing and welcoming that we were the last patrons to leave!). The dishes were beautifully cooked and had an authentic flavour and aroma with all pasta dishes being made on the premises. Some outstanding choices were the ravioli, pasta with duck ragout and seafood with polenta. I also loved the radicchio and orange salad mixed with a delicious dressing. For dessert I tried the almond cake which had been freshly made that morning. It was served with ice-cream. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to make our visit a pleasant and memorable one. I would give this restaurant a strong recommendation. Afterwards we strolled through the open-air antique market in Padova - a lovely Sunday afternoon indeed!

Padua is full of restaurants, but where to eat if you want something nice without spending too much? We liked the Bacaro Padovano:
- very kind staff
- good dishes
- not exaggerated
- fair price
It is a more modern approach to the Italian kitchen, I liked as well it's 'lightness'.
Warmly recommended!

We arrived on a busy Saturday evening, having made no reservation - and were made to feel welcome even though they had no table available.
Rather than send us away we were offered stools at a large barrel near the bar, and eat using that and the bar as a table.
Delicious food - spicy prawns, duck ragout and beautifully cooked veal. Red wine from a barrel and friendly service - a perfect way to finish our first evening in Padova!

We came across this restaurant entirely by chance but what a find! The staff were able to accommodate us at short notice even though the restaurant was very busy. All of the staff were friendly & the delightful waitress was very helpful in explaining the dishes & gave us a menu in English as the Italian menu was, I'm ashamed to say, a little beyond us! My husband & I both chose the fillet of pork with porcini mushrooms accompanied by a side dish of the most delicious potatoes infused with oil & rosemary plus a mix of sweet carrot, aubergine, courgette & cauliflower. It was superb & we both agreed one of the best meals we'd had in a long while. The fillet was very generous & beautifully cooked. I couldn't resist a dessert & chose an almond cake/torte, served with gelato, which was scrummy. The restaurant has a rustic charm with a relaxed ambience & it was lovely to see large family groups enjoying a Saturday night out with babies sleeping peacefully alongside! Excellent!
