One of the best restaurants in Padua is Restaurant Hostaria San Benedetto, where we recommend to try their venetian PDO ham. Restaurant Hostaria San Benedetto has a certain appeal, with its old walls that belongs to an ancient building of the historic center of Montagnana, one of the most beautiful city with walls in Europe. To tell the truth, the restaurant is still young, though in this years it has been recognized for the excellence of its cooking, for which it won several important prizes. In the kitchen Gianni and Laura Rugolotto prepare dishes using seasonal products, especially herbs (that often they personally pick in the fields and in the mountain). One of the ingredient of their dishes is the Montagnana ham, a PDO product. The starters protagonists are figs, which you can find even in other courses. As a local dish you can have Paduan hen salad with raisins, walnuts and pine nuts. We also recommend: pappardelle pasta with duck sauce, cannelloni pasta with verbena and Montassio cheese fondue, beef ganache with Friularo wine, boned rabbit leg with olives. Desserts are all homemade: for example, hazelnut pie with chestnut cream. Intimate place, elegant but sober. It seems to have a trip back in time.
