“Excellent meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Ate here over a year ago, but it was absolutely outstanding. Great, attentive service, interesting menu, and really friendly staff. I'd highly recommend Padre Figlio!

“Padre Figlio, NYC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

I picked up a Groupon before going to NYC to Padre Figlio. I was a bit weary about getting a restaurant certificate to somewhere I didn't know. My son and I enjoyed the prix fixed dinner that was offered. We had 2 appetizers, the smoked salmon (I would highly recommend) and baked clams. We then selected the Château Briand. This was to die for! It was melt in your mouth goodness! The dinner also included 2 desserts and 2 cappucinos. We had the flan and an ice cream dessert. Flan was the winner. Excellent restaurant with excellent service! I love how everyone took care to make us feel special!

“Excellent food and setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

We went her based on the Groupon coupon. The food was excellent and the setting was great. The portions were substantial and tasted great. We shared the Chateaubriand and it was top notch. Service was excellent and friendly. We would definitely go back.

“Don't think you will get a deal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

The restaurant is located near 2nd and 44thnear the UN. The host was welcoming and very proud of the Zagat rating the restaurant has received. The dining room has a dark feel while the enclosed sidewalk patio area is more bright and to me a nicer setting but this is personal preference. While the food was fine,please don't think you are getting a deal with a Groupon or other special certificate. You pick from a special menu (not a problem and nice choices) BUT tax and tip are based on what we believe to be inflated pricing. After paying for the Groupon itself and then the added taxes and tip on the "actual" costs", we paid more than if we entered the restaurant without a Groupon certificate and ordered from the Price Fixe menu (much more affordable) or skipped a course and ordered off the regular menu. So while the restaurant is nice enough, just don't think that you are actually saving.

“Wonderful Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Nice Italian dishes and seafood. I had the gnocchi napoletani that melted in my mouth. Nice wine selection
