Ristorante Il Canzoniere

Via Zane, 5 - 35029 Arquà Petrarca (Pd) -- contacts: +39 0429777361;

The restaurant's name, 'Il Canzoniere', recalls Petrarch's poetry. But the inspiration here lies in the breathtaking landscape, which guests can enjoy from the terraces, and in the flavors of the dishes, both traditional and innovative.

The spacious terrace and the naturally-lit rooms (up to 150 seats) will welcome you for intimate dinners, holiday lunches, refreshments and banquets.

Beside the classic offerings from the grill you will find dishes prepared with local and seasonal products with an original twist: rosole (a local savory leaf) with polenta and crispy ham, purple potato gnocchi, asparagus and artichoke salads served with the tastiest cheeses, rabbit with lavender, guinea-fowl with blueberries, as well as homemade desserts and a selection of local and national wines.

We frequently organize theme dinners/lunches and events on the main terrace.
