This is a very beautiful restaurant with very good food. The Iranian owner was very nice, friendly and helpful and he explained all the dishes. The food was amazing and very tasty. My only criticism is that the Sardinian wife of the Iranian owner could/ should have been a bit more smiley and less moody every time she would come... More

We go there every time we are in Padua. Have always had a great meal, the food is packed with flavor but simple in execution.

One of the best tagliata in town. Cozy, nice, tasty. Right choice for dinner night. Try Lillove wine from Cannonau grapes.

Really enjoyed the food - from the starters to the main course to the desert. As a vegetarian, I had several choices which is always good, although most of the dishes are with fish or meat.

Our experience at this restaurant earns a complete five stars. We weren't sure what to expect with Sardinian cuisine, but were so glad we took a chance. The first impression upon walking into the dining area is that it felt like Mom's kitchen. Very rustic and tastefully decorated - absolutely charming without an ounce of tacky. Our waiter asked us...

Are you missing Sardegna and its flavors? Then definitely you should visit this restaurant! The dining room is arranged as if you are at home, the tables quite apart one to the other respecting privacy, surrounded by lots of books, sardenian ornaments and wines. The food is delicious, home made. We will definitely come back!

A very pleasant reception, good service, no hassle , no interruptions , and delicious dishes. We chose from both the set lunch menu and the main, both were interesting, tasty and well presented. The surprise (because we ordered somewhat blind, not understanding Italian, but deciding it sounded good) wads the artichoke frittata . Just melt in the mouth, and very... More

While on business travel in Padua i visited this restaurant with work colleagues. This is a very traditional Italian restaurant with rustic authentic Italian food. No one in our group made a bad choice. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. Dishes ranged from Squid to suckling pig - all of which were delicious. The staff who served us did so with... More

I have been eating Sardo food on the island and at different other locations in Italy. Here it was a mix of local and Sardo. The Sardo dinner consisted of 4 relatively small courses. Acceptable, but certainly not our favorite in Padova.

Located in the back streets not far from the Plaza Hotel, this small restaurant was a great find. We were warmly welcomed and were served really lovely food. The menu was interesting and the Sardinian wine we drank by the glass was excellent but we unfortunately forgot to ask for the name of it. Word of warning - we tried... More
