Catering and restaurant

centro congressi padova catering interno

Through our catering service we are able to organise cocktails and drinks inside the Congress Centre, with modern and appetising buffet lunches or dinners, fragrant coffee breaks and homemade confectionery.
Thanks to our own kitchen in the Congress Centre, we can provide waiter service for lunch or dinner and even offer great gala dinners or dinners with music and entertainment.


Forcellini172 Restaurant


Forcellini172 Food & Garden Padua

The Restaurant is open to the public at lunch and dinner, and is an ideal alternative for guests who have not organised their own catering. Congress guests are free to use the restaurant at their own expense or, if specifically agreed, at the event organiser’s expense.

Our Forcellini172 Food & Garden Restaurant is situated alongside the Padua Congress Centre in a separate building, which is a 100 meters by foot through our private park.
Open for lunch from Monday to Friday and for dinner every evening, except for Tuesday evening. Our Restaurant is the ideal choice for the participants and organisers of the events that are held in our Congress Centre.

Homemade confectionary


responsabilità sociale d'imprese nei congressi

We make the homemade confectionery in our workshop with our team of expert confectionery chefs.
We can offer our line of confectionery in the attractive packaging bearing the “Pasticceria Giotto” brand, which is a synonym of high level handmade confectionery in Padua. We market our line of products both online and through our own sales office.
The "Pasticceria Giotto" products immediately remind us of Padua with their reference to the famous Giotto frescoes in the Scrovegni Chapel, but they mean more besides.
Purely Padua excellence which has a very strong social connotation and which has received numerous and prestigious national awards, such as the “Piatto d'Argento” from the Italian Cooking Academy.
"Pasticceria Giotto" are made in a very special workshop in Padua Prison: in fact, since 2005 our chefs have moved their production to the “Due Palazzi” maximum security prison where they have taken on some of the inmates as assistant chefs.
An excellent local product and also a great job opportunity for the inmates.

The inmates not only learn a trade in Padua prison, but they also take part in a rehabilitation course to rediscover the meaning of life.
When you buy the “I Dolci di Giotto” as a gift, you involve all those attending the congress or events, your clients, partners and suppliers in this well-deserving initiative, and effectively emphasise your message of social responsibility.
