Great food but slow service

Excellent food once it arrived but extremely slow service. Have been there twice now and experienced the same issue both times. Large menu with great Italian sauces and various dishes. Moderate prices

We ordered take out from this restraint last night as we were over a friends home. When ordering I had to repeat myself numerous times to make sure he knew what we wanted. They ended up giving us the wrong type of sandwiches which made my wife not so happy. Then we broke into the side of meat balls that... More

We took some family members here for a birthday occasion and all were pleasantly surprised when the food came out and delivered an outstanding culinary experience. One of the specials was a beautifully cooked steak (more lie a slab) over perfectly cooked risotto topped off with just too much to mention. The steak was very tender and cooked to order.... More

When to Padrino's for the second time in two weeks. The food was very good. First visit I had the Gnocchi - second visit I had a pasta dish. Food was good and tasty! Service was slow and poor - received food without silverware, soup without a soup, pasta without cheese and went times without seeing a server or without... More

Very broad menu with that could appeal to any palate. Portions are huge! Try the chicken vodka Parmesan, very tasty. Entrees are reasonably priced from $12-30. It's BYOB but also sells local working dog winery wines. I will definitely eat here again.

We have been here a few times over the past year and we always love it. We never had a bad meal. The food is always fresh and accurate. We are a tough group to please. Servers are always attentive and always pleasant. We have had bridal showers and birthdays here. Always a great time. Highly recommend!!

Went here for the 4th time. Have always loved it since we started coming here, about 8-10 months ago. The first time, everything was absolutely perfect. The food is completely delicious and has always been, but the service has definitely declined. Our servers are always nice but the last 2 times they have been unattentive and non-responsive. This last time,... More

We have eaten at Padrinos twice. The first time we waited an eternity for our waiter to take our order. After we complained they did give us a free appetizer. That was the only good part of the meal. The entrees finally came and they were ehh. My eggplant was heavy and I chose to leave my leftovers. The second... More

We have enjoyed this restaurant with friends on a number of occasions. The food and atmosphere were always 4 star. Last night changed it for us. The food was not bad. Not up to par with previous visits, but not bad. The waitress was fantastic and is the reason I chose 3 star instead of 2. The big problem here... More
