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

My girlfriend and I went here to enjoy a nice dinner and bottle of wine. The place was completely empty and the waiter was nice but strange. We ordered calamari as an app and it was clearly frozen and very tough/hard to eat. We made a decision to shut down the rest of the meal and will not be going... More

Figured it was time to write a long overdue review. We try at hit Padrino's at least every 6 weeks or so (even when it was Leonardo's on Rt 130). The food has been consistently above average. We can honestly say that we have never had a bad meal here. The menu is huge, so there are many different types... More

We went because my In-Laws said it was a good place as recommended by a friend. It was just about empty and now we know why.... The food was terrible with so many ingredients that it was impossible to find the food taste you were eating. I had chicken piccata and it was weird tasting, over seasoned and the pasta... More

Yelp ratings were overall really good. Said they served huge portions (they did), that the quality of food was very solid (missed the mark here) and the service was good (it was). My partner and I went to the restaurant with our dear friends and made reservations online - the only time they had was 6:00 or 7:30 - we... More

The last two times we went there my food has been horrid. I got the Mediterraneo and it was full of sand sent it back and just ate my in-laws food. Last time we went the service was on par with the food. It took over an hour for our sodas and apps to come out. The place was half... More

We went here for a rehearsal lunch and the food was great! Also a pleasant atmosphere. He host was very courteous and professional, although some of the wait staff seemed irritable and hurried, even though we were the only ones in there besides one other small table. Still a good overall experience and would go back!
