Love the atmosphere of this restaurant. Dark and romantic. Not too noisy! Awesome Italian fare. The service and food are always second to none!

Padrino's was reported to be a quality establishment, this was not my experience. Service was slow, with no interest in one's concerns. Food was mediocre at best, and price was substantial. Not worth the effort.

I love this restaurant! It's where I will always choose to eat when we go out for a nice meal (which isn't often and makes it all the more special!) Our last waitress, Robin, was fantastic. Made our evening even better with her friendly attitude and quick wit:)

I've been here three times, and every time it was a let down. An Italian restaurant should make its own pasta. The food is boring and tasteless, and far too expensive. Not at all better than East Side Mario's or Olive Garden(which isn't a good thing!)

This was our first experience at Padrinos. Some our family have been there several times before and have always raved about how good it was. All I can say -based on this one experience of our own - is that it is just okay. The seafood linguine I ordered did not come close to what I've had at The Olive... More

Our 2year old was with her grandpa and we were out for a long overdue date night! I had been here for the first time a week ago and had a fantastic experience so I decided to take my husband (who also had never been to this restaurant). I made a reservation a few days before to ensure a good... More

Great menu with all items prepared as expected. Steak was tender and came cooked as ordered. The Lamb is also very tasty. I would go to the Acropolis if lamb is of your liking. Server was very attentive and water always topped off. Atmosphere is of fine dining whether seated at a booth or a table. Great place if the... More

We had dinner out and it was disappointing. I ordered the veal and it was so tough I gave up after the 3rd bite. My husbands meal of veal stuffed pasted seemed pretty good. The waitress took the veal off the bill and was very nice about it but still I had a snack at home instead of a lovely... More

I've are here a few times for Buisness and with my wife. I enjoy both the spaghetti and veal. It is one of the nicer restaurants for a date with you wife in a city littered with pub style chains.
