I ve been there with a big group of friends for a celebration and I ve been amazed of the view from the restaurant and the quality of the food.
We had a really tasty mushrooms risotto ( and believe me it's really difficult to cook al dente risotto for dozen of people) and a soft stripy beef steak
Great service as well!

The above says it all. The locals visit here too. We had a table outside. A complementary Processo and Bruchetta. No problem to translate the Italien menu into English. And help to create a lovely mail for my daughter. Tagliatella and gamba's. Whilst we had a speck and truffle bruchetta. The best. Good wine, Olivetani colli euganei bianco 2013.
As mains the truffle pasta. Ice cream was good and the other sweets also. Espresso great. I would definitely recommend this place.

I learned about this location from my (now) Italian husband's family, who are from a small town nearby. They had attended another family member's wedding here and raved about the view, food and service. It turned out to be the perfect venue for our wedding. Davide, the manager, is incredibly professional and responsive (especially via phone and internet as we were planning our wedding from the U.S.). Everything turned out better than myself and my husband expected - both the American and Italian guests raved about the food (incredible appetizer buffet, delicious cuts of meat, incredible presentation of desserts, etc.). We also ate here for lunch several times before and after the wedding and were incredibly pleased with the flavor and quality of the food.

Arqua' Petrarca named for Francesco Petrarca, a renaissance poet who wrote often about love and romance and this area definitely lives up to it's name (it was named one of the 100 most beautiful areas in Italy). Nestled amongst rolling hills lined with vineyards, the Canzoniere offers beautiful views and an amazing outdoor terrace space where we had our appetizers, desserts and dancing. Conveniently, there is also an attached hotel, Villa del Poeta, where our guests stayed for 3 days. We were able to work with Davide and local businesses to coordinate a vineyard tour, a trip to the Terme (hot springs), and a delicious pizza rehearsal dinner. I would highly recommend this area and restaurant to anyone looking to plan a wedding or just planning a romantic trip to a place that is not yet overcrowded by tourists in Italy.

We were staying at Villa del Poeta. After a long day of sightseeing, we wanted a nice meal.

While we spent more on this meal than any other during our two weeks in Italy, it was worthwhile!

We left Italy with a fond memory of a good meal.

Carla (seems to be the owner) was available to translate the menu and interpret our desires to the (non-English savvy) staff. The meal was delivered flawlessly, including a HUGE T-bone steak done Tuscan style - the specialty of the house. I hope we walked off all the calories earlier that day.
