As an earlier review stated there is no atmosphere to speak of, but that's not why you go to a restaurant. The food is. Both my husband and I got specials of the night. My husband got what was supposed to be a rib eye, but he thought was more like a strip steak done medium not medium rare as... More

We came in from out of town for a reception with about 35 family members. They have the ability to partition off the restaurant that still makes it inviting and not like you are just stuck in the back room. Food and service we great. We were there for about four hours and did not feel rushed by any means.... More

This place was recommended to me a while ago but I never made it until recently and I am glad I did. We had excellent service by waiter Rudy and had much attention from other servers and wait staff. We started off by sharing an appetizer of fried gnocchi which I had never had before. It was quite light and... More

Made a return visit with another couple for weekend dining. We were warmly greeted and seated on time for the reservation. Ordered off the menu despite some interesting specials. Our BYO was handled well with suitable glassware and ice bucket. Would recommend the calamari fritti appetizer. Our entrees consisted of 2 different fish dishes and a veal choice. All were... More

Padrino's was recommended by friends who lived in Hamilton. It's a short distance from the Grounds for Sculpture. Large menu, large portions, friendly waiters. I enjoyed my leftovers for lunch the next day just as much.

Half way point between friends from Pa to NJ. Worth the trip. Service excellent. I don't remember his name but he had a great head of gray hair. He was attentive but not intrusive. Now for the menu. Fabulous. I had the Mediterraneano that was to die for. Everyone at the table loved their meals from steak to crab cakes... More

Always a nice meal here. Interior does not have much character, but you don't go to look at the walls, right?

I had a wonderful time at this eating establishment with my family. The food was food, the waiters/waitresses were polite, and the overall atmosphere made me feel like I was at home. The only complaint is had was when I went into the bathroom there was a homeless man bathing in the sink. When I alerted the workers they didn't... More

To celebrate my friends new job, we choose Padrino's because it was Italian, had a reputation for large portions & was BYOB. The wine flowed & so did the food! For 3 couples we really enjoyed the family style appetizers, I recommend the spicy calamari, it was fantastic! From burgers to steaks to seafood with pasta, Padrino's lived up to... More

Went out for our 49th wedding anniversary to someplace new, and really liked it. A short distance from Bucks County, PA. My wife had the Vegetable Lasagna and I had the Seafood Lasagna. Both dishes were really good. Our waiter was very attentive and did a fine job.
