At Il Padrino the philosphy is "Get em in, get em fed, get em out - Oh and do your best to do the hardsell (particularly on the wine) if you have time"
When I was there, there was constant pressure on diners to "hurry up" and finish so that the next batch of suckers could be "processed"
If you want a decent Italian meal when you are in Cork, then don't even try. Best that you save your hard earned Euros and travel to Italy for an authentic Italian meal or two at half the price and double the appreciation.
