Excellent service, but middle of the road food

Friends who have been to this establishment many times in the past, brought us here. It's convenient enough to get to and lots of parking. Wait staff is friendly and very, very very attentive. The food, while enjoyable, wasn't overly special, though. Decent enough to go to if in the area, but... read more

We eat at Padrino's every Friday night, we call it 4 for 8. Their staff does a fantastic job from greeting us on the way in to saying good night on the way out. In between, we have very good food that they are willing to adjust from the menu to suit our tastes and dietary restrictions (gluten free). I... More

I've been visiting Padrino's a couple of times a year for the past 7-8 years and can always count on delicious Italian food. We are spoiled in NJ with wonderful Italian restaurants, especially in the Trenton area, but Padrino's is truly one of the best. I always order one of their seafood dishes (although others rave about the meat dishes,... More

We celebrated my birthday here with dinner. We had been here one time before and always said we would come back. We ordered a bottle of wine although they do allow byob. We didn't have appetizers, but we did have salad, spinach egg drop soup and lentil soup, all so good. For our entrees' we had Vodka Rigatoni, Toscano (which... More

Excellent quality of freshly made entries which delivered tastes you would expect from a much higher priced restaurant. The service is always attentive and cordial as well. I again had the veal parm which is actually enough for two. The sauce is made fresh with the perfect consistency. One of our favorites.

We had lunch last week, & the food was very good. All four of us had to ask for a box to take half of out lunch home. We all had something different. I had chicken parm with pasta. It was very good. I am amazed that the place was empty for lunch. We were the only ones in the... More

Padrinos was recommended as the halfway point for us and the couple we were meeting from Bucks County who we had not seen for quite some time. Location was definitely midway. Restaurant us a BYO.

Make no mistake, if you want to go to a restaurant with very reasonable prices and beyond generous portions, this is your place. If you want true Italian-style cooking that honors and highlights the best of the ingredients used, this is not for you. The menu is extensive and almost every dish is over-the-top with number of ingredients yet the... More

We have dined here quite a few times and we really enjoy the food. It is a BYOB but they do have a wine menu. Great food options that are very delicious. It does get a little tight in there being that the tables are close together. It is a good idea to make reservations and maybe even request a... More
