The place is cosy, well decorated, although a bit small and gets full quickly. The appetizer was their best serving, rich with cheese and sliced meat. The rest was barely average and the pizza was especially disappointing. Way too big and way too salty! None of us liked it. The prices were ok.

We selected this restaurant based on reviews and our love of Italian food. We made reservations since it was a special evening and arrived to a full restaurant and no recollection of our reservation. We were pointed toward an outdoor cafe table relocated indoors, not the most comfortable situation to start. To be fair, the restaurant was extremely busy. Unfortunately... More

Excellent food, very nice people, very good service. Located in a very nice part of the town, even more residencial. I recommend the Spaguetti a la Gondola and any deserts they have - all very good. Don't loose this opportunity.

This was a very busy restaurant and yet we did not have to wait for a seat The service was quick and we ate spaghetti bolognaise which was under 9 euros. The down side I felt we were sitting on top of one another and we could hear other peoples conversations so I wouldnt recommend it for a romantic meal... More

A wonderful experience! Can not say enough about how lovely the owner was or the quality and presentation of the food! The portions ar very generous and the wine selection is very comprehensive, with prices to suite all pockets. Get a table outside if available! We highly recommend! Enjoy!

A "must go to" place for italian cuisine! Real italian feeling, the food was delicious with good variety and perfect wine recommendations. The owner is very friendly and caring and the staff very nice. We loved the garden outside! A very good experience and we can fully recommend "IL PADRINO" if you visit Salzburg!
