this restaurant came highly recommended by a Salzburg resident who is a regular patron. We went on a weeknight, and the place was not crowded...few people sitting inside and empty tables outside. We were seated immediately, and our order was taken promptly. they brought my glass of wine and my husband's sparkling wafter, but not my water. They brought our... More

When I went there it happened that it was raining and unfortunately it wasn't available inside, but they managed to seat us outside in a covered area. I ordered Spaghetti Frutti di Mare. Excellent food and service. Staff are very friendly

Fabulous service! Homely, welcoming atmosphere! Staff are very friendly, helpful and speak English, Italian and German! Best Italian meal to date! Food presentation is excellent. Flavours and smells that invade the senses in a good way! One day I'll be back

During a thunderstorm we went here, recommended by our hotel, and it was nothing to regret, We did not reserve a table in advance so when w got there we had to wait for about 10 minutes, While we waited, the owner(?) came with a glass of drinks for all of us, some sparking wine for me and my wife...

I confess that I found the restaurant situation in Salzburg to be rather bleak until we came across Il Padrino. I have eaten at Italian restaurants across the world and I would say that this is the best that I have come across outside of Italy. The ambiance is very pleasant, the staff is very friendly and efficient, the wine... More

Visited Salzburg for the weekend with my mum and sister, found this restaurant via trip advisor and decided to visit as close to our hotel (Eco Suite Hotel). Visited Friday night but fully booked so we reserved a table for the Saturday as obviously popular - we were not disappointed! Starters were big and beautifully presented (tomato & mozerella and...

Just returned from a lovely meal. The service was pleasant: attentive but not overly. My mother had the Tagliatelle Bolognese which she thought was the best of its kind she'd ever had. Salads were fresh and of excellent quality. All washed down with a nice house Chianti! Complimentary limoncello completed the meal. Highly recommended.

The meal started out very well. One of the waiters went over the menu, written in Italian and Austrian. Our drinks arrived and then our meals. My meal was excellent; whereas, the meat of my companions was only luke warm. To our surprise we were given a platter of different desserts to make up for the poor meal.

When I got t this place,they mentioned that only 1 table left which I said to myself, so lucky as it was started to rain outside too. The... More

We went there on a Saturday night without reservation. Undoubtedly it was packed but they went out of their way to fit us in. We were first given a table in the smoking section, but having a toddler & not being smokers they promised to move us the minute a table is cleared in the non smoking room - they... More
