While searching for restaurants in Venice, I stumbled upon Le Calandre. After consulting with my husband, we decided to make a special trip to Padova just for the experience.

It truly was an experience. An ultimate birthday celebration for my main man.

The flavors. Wow! The the lobster carpaccio, cuttlefish cappuccino, and saffron risotto. Can’t. Get. Enough. Everything was fantastic with beautiful presentation!

I wish the Alajmo brothers were my brothers.

We've been there in our honeymoon for a tasting menu and the experience was wonderful.
Since the attendance, the food (delicious and creative!!) and really a different experience!! We truly recommend!! The chef came to talk to us and we received a "gift" for our honeymoon really cute.
It deserves the 3 Michelin stars!!

This was one of the best meals we have ever had.
We visited for lunch and had the pleasure of being there on a day where the chef was in.

Everything about this restaurant was absolutely amazing. From the decor, to the wool theme, from the utensils to the stemware and plates, from the service, to the attention to details - all was perfection at its best.

The dishes themselves were very distinctive and innovative. The presentation and taste varied from simple to complex, from plain to luxurious.

This was our first visit to the chef's flagship restaurant, and we are looking forward to visiting again

Our family stopped for lunch en route from Cortona to Venice - what a treat! We enjoyed our lunch so much that we pushed back our Venice activities by two hours so we could really bask in the dining experience at this 3-star Michelin find. They easily accommodated all of our dining preferences (pescatarian, low gluten) with a 9 or 10 course tasting menu, we lost count. We'd definitely go out of our way to dine here again. The service, the table setting, the glassware - everything was a dream.
