We ate here with friends and were pretty happy with our meals, other than the special that two of our party had. I think their standard menu items are pretty solid (tagliatelle with beef and pork ragu, arancini, pate were all good). Wednesdays are $10 off bottles of wine.

Went here on a Sunday evening. This is a quiet Italian style restaurant with a number of relatively dark rooms, lit by table candles. We had mixed olive starters and then the spicy pasta clams with ham and the daily fish, which was salmon. Finished with tiramisu and ice cream. The wine list is extensive and there is a good...

Everything about this restaurant is good. First time there with my som and daughter-in-law, the food was excellent, the amosphere was great, the servers were attentive and the chef came out to talk to us. Will definitely go back.

We came with friends we hadn't seen in 30 years to enjoy dinner and a long overdue visit. Padella Kitchen was perfect. Quiet and relaxed for easy conversation. We started by sharing the gnocchi with walnut pesto as an appetizer. The gnocchi were excellent and the pesto was outstanding. Two guests had the Cowichan chicken and really enjoyed it. The... More

Celebrated my 50th birthday here last night. We had the Chef's Table and every dish was absolutely fabulous. I highly recommend this restaurant for a special night out. The chefs and staff gave us a very memorable evening and we will be back!

There were four of us there for a belated birthday dinner. Oh my gosh the food was absolutely amazing! Everything is fresh, local as much as possible and they make their own mustard which is to die for. Service was excellent and the owner came to chat at the end of dinner. A fantastic evening with incredible food. Will be... More

I've been to Padella more than a handful of times now and every time is a pleasure. The food is fantastic, the atmosphere is so welcoming and the staff is warm, knowledgeable and fun. No stuffy pretense here and I find that very refreshing. If you're looking for a place to go for any occasion or even just a glass... More

Went for a family dinner, had "chef's table" - several courses with multiple platters for each. Very good flavours, everything was exceptionally well done. Gnocchi was best we've had, even being to italy! Having had tasting menus at other restaurants I was suprised at the generous portion size, as we were very full by the end! better than going hungry... More

We visited this restaurant with friends for a belated birthday dinner. We spent several days trying to decide on which restaurant we wanted to try out.
