Opened over twenty years ago, this family run ristorante provides not only pasta but also great pizza. Their pizza can be ordered a bit differently because they use two different flours to make pizza crust, so you can choose which type you would prefer. One without levin.You will find Miramonti to be very clean, and the service is quick and...more
A popular enoteca in the middle of Torreglia, we drive by there several times a week and there is a large crowd of people enjoying wine and more. Finally we stopped to see what it is all about and we found it to be a very nice enoteca. You can expect that if you describe a wine you would like to try, the owner will find a bottle and give you a...more
So Fabulous Fabrizio hooks us up! This small restaurant was down a dirt road, hidden from all but the locals... but it as packed! We had a gastronomic feast we will never forget! It all began with complementary aperitifs; followed by the BEST HOMEMADE PASTA we have ever had; then came this unbelievable frozen dessert of layered ice cream and...more

Ma Kettle and I were on our way to Torreglia, but stupidly had missed our bus stop, and were walking back from Luvigliano, a small little hillside town. We spotted this place along the way, and since I'm almost always up for a feed, we decided to stop. However, upon entering, the bartender told us the restaurant wasn't open, but he would check to...more
Located within the centre of town, immediately across from the spurting decorative water fountains, lies the site of Naturalmente, la Gelateria and Buddineria. They serve only 'all natural' flavoured gelato (no artificial flavouring here), and creamy smooth pudding, topped by imported maple syrup from Quebec.Everything is made on site from the...more
There are two bus lines that run to Torrelia, the Sita Bus Line, as well as the APS Bus line.
SITA BUS is blue and costs 1.95 euro from Padova.
APS is yellow and costs 1.90 euro.
Please be aware that these are competing bus lines, and their tickets are not interchangeable. We made the mistake of buying the Sita bus ticket, and used it on the APS line. Going to Torrelia wasn't a problem because the driver didn't check, but upon returning, the driver noticed it, and kicked us off. We didn't even realize the error, but if we had been enroute and an inspector checked our tickets, an automatic 80 euro fine. Moral of the story, check your tickets for accuracy immediately after purchase.
At Padova train station, you can purchase Sita Bus tickets outside, under the portico (see photo) and, APS Bus tickets inside the station (see second photo)Related to:

Torreglia Warnings and Dangers
Check the road signs...
This is not a warning as such, however we learned the hard way. When you travel to these small, non-touristy areas, you must be on the lookout for the signs indicating that you are 'now leaving' specific towns.
For instance, we drove through Torreglia and didn't notice which town it was. As we were leaving, we both noticed a sign showing 'Torreglia' with a red line drawn through it, and the name of the next town coming up written in smaller letters on the bottom. It makes sense.
However, at the time we were both so interested in the scenery, that it just didn't register. Duhhh.
In this case, we were happy we missed our stop and had to walk back. The two kms was filled with photo ops that we otherwise would have missed.Related to:

Torreglia Off The Beaten Path
There are tons of little hill side towns, towers, abbeys etc, in this region, all with multiple well marked hiking trails. You need a car to get to most of the area, but then you can just pull over and walk. We found a beautiful park and trail NW of Torreglia near the town of Rovolon.more
