Good spot for lunch good food & a lot of it

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... read 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. And we were able to catch up for over three hours. BUT the food was average at best. And the fact that there were maybe... More

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

Very good place, so much better than what one would expect from a typical NJ strip-mall 'Ristorante Italiano'. Padrino's features a very nice - and wide - selection of pasta, seafood, and steaks, fillet mignon, pork chops, and even lobster tails. However, there is a genuine Italian twist to the cuisine, perhaps due to the fact that the executive chef... More

Stopped in to the pizza side yesterday and had a slice and so good came back for a sub today. Pizza choices change and a small sub is enough for two. They have an upscale side as well which I wish I had the time to enjoy. Would revist again and again

Hubby and I dined at Padrino's tonight, then I came home to a Tripadvisor email looking for reviews of local restaurants. This has been one of my favorite restaurants in our area for several years. The menu at Padrino's puts a different twist on Italian. We're addicted to the four-cheese Buffalo Calamari appetizer, so I can't recommend the others, but... More

Have eaten here quite a few times. Nice byob restaurant. Very large portions. Can't remember a time where I didn't take home food. The service has always been good and the food as well.

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
