If you find yourself hungry with just yourself or the family in midtown Dale City. Swing on into to Padrino's Pizza in Center Plaza for a pizza pie or calzone. Family own with authentic Italian food. Never lets my stomach down. Service can be slow at times. I've been eating here for the past 15yrs.

What is wrong with this place? Three weeks ago we stopped by to order cheese steaks. Very simple, two cheese steaks, one with mustard only, one with banana peppers only. Simple right? When we took them home, neither had what we asked for, instead they were covered deep in soggy wet lettuce. Both mostly ended up in the trash after we tried to scrape off the lettuce and tossed the soggy bread. We tried again the next week. We called in the order, went over each item very carefully, they told us pick up in 20 minutes. We arrived in 20 minutes only to discover that they had not made our steaks. Had to wait 20 more minutes, defeating the concept of ordering ahead. Got them home and thankfully there was no lettuce, but of course they did not have the ingredients we requested. It is always like this with Padrino's. We only go back because it is close to us. When will be learn? it is a shame, because they could be efficient and good, but they choose not to be. I think the problem is they have no competition in Dale City. The really don't seem to care, they don't properly train their staff. Unprofessional on phone and in person. The place is dingy, dirty, dark, and uninviting. sticky tables and floors. They mess up every time and never offer any apology. Shameful way to run a business. The steaks themselves actually taste good, when we are lucky enough to have them made properly. We have been eating here for twenty years, but it is very hit and miss, and seems to be declining year by year. Very poor management!

The server was so slow. Took forever to even get our drinks. Some friends joined us later and could not get anyone's attention for them to to order. The food was OK, but not worth the wait.
Not the cleanest place.

We have been happy with Padrino's Pizza during our 37 years living in Dale City, but no more! It's under new management and they do not care one bit about customer satisfaction. In addition, BEWARE, because rules change while you're eating in! We were there tonight with our family at a table for eight - four pizzas and eight drinks. Over all our years, there always was a special deal - two large pizzas with one topping for about $22. Ate in tonight and paid $62.14 without tax. Excuse was we had eight people at the table - WHAT? Nothing on the menu, posted on the wall, or signage on the door, just told it was "orders from the pizza maker." Don't patronize this establishment anymore - NOT PADRINO'S PIZZA anymore!

This is our go to pizza place in the area. No chain pizza comes anywhere close to Padrinos. The sauce is always the right amount with a generous amount of cheese. We also enjoy the white pizza with ricotta and mozzarella cheeses and garlic. Very good. The tortellini with alfredo sauce is a family favorite. When we are not in the mood for any of these we order the turkey sub, heated with provolone cheese, lettuce and onions. The mayo on the sub can not be duplicated anywhere and is delicious. There is inside seating although we usually order take out. We definitely recommend supporting this well run family business.
