“good meat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012

We have visited this restaurant a couple of time over the years. The food is excellent, particularly their meat but sometimes the odors from the kitchen are disturbing.

“Family run -- family feel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2010

Il Padrone is a real character!! Attentive service. Decent food. Good wines (and good recommendations from the boss -- towards the lower end of his price list too!). Nice atmosphere. Frutti del bosco (at €9) good but almost three times the cost of an average dessert at La Rosa dei Venti! All other food is competitively priced.
