The best food in town

Restaurant La Finestra

One of the best restaurants in Padua is Restaurant La Finestra, where we recommend to try their risottos, especially with Chioggia radicchio (chicory) and red wine. Restaurant La Finestra (the window) is, metaphorically speaking, the window on the world. It overlooks the arcades of the old town of Padova, where history has left its clear marks. “La finestra” is a little restaurant in Tadi street, near the cathedral. Carlo and Hélenè Vidali have decorated it with taste and love, highlighting the vaulted ceiling and the walls impregnated of history. A place embellished with Marco Scarso’s artistic windows, hanging on the walls. Cooking as well is simple and of good taste. The restaurant offers dainty dishes, mainly prepared with seasonal products. Carlo has a wealth of experience: he has worked in New York, Denmark, but first of all in Griso di Lecco and at Restaurant Dolado in Alpago. Hélenè, instead, has worked at the historical restaurant Roma in Tolmezzo, with Cosetti. The winning menu offers gazpacho of scallops au gratin, marinated red snapper with lime, beef carpaccio (thin slices of raw meat) with hazelnuts and Grana cheese flakes. And then: risotto (rice) with zucchini and mint, crepe with stracchino cheese and Pesto (sauce of crushed basil), stewed octopus with cous-cous flan, scalded tuna with tomatoes, green beans and saffron sauce. Local desserts are all homemade. Wide choice of wine.
