One of the best restaurants in Padua is Restaurant Ai Mediatori, where we recommend to try the meat. The characteristic tavern, crowded every day at lunch time, was witness of the largest movement of animals in the Veneto. Because Tombolo, you know, is the capital of the recognized trade of animals for meat. And the best deals are concluded with the traditional handshake in the tavern in the square. The tavern is now a cozy restaurant, whose name (“the middlemen”) recalls the tradition of the country. Stefania Sgarbossa and her husband Simone Antonello embody well the role of innkeepers. She always explains the dishes, ingredient by ingredient. The plates are sincere, marked by local customs. They range from the grilled salami to the 'polenta, radicchio and nails' proposal. Among the first courses what stand out are the lasagnette flavored with red wine, seasoned with a paste of salami and radicchio (really very successful) and the pasta with shrimps and radicchio flavored with coffee. Worthy of attention the risottos of season. In choosing the second course one cannot compromise: in Tombolo you must order the meat. Thinly sliced grilled steak or fillet, but meat. Among the desserts you can also find some surprises, such as the homemade almond brittle. Also good bread baked at the bakery in the center.
