Low romantic lighting sets the mood for an enjoyable and relaxing meal. In our candle lit Martini Lounge you can sip eclectic martinis or smoke a cigar in our outside patio. Padri offers live music Thursday with DJ Friday and Saturday night, so put on your dancing shoes and join the crowd.

“Best west Valley Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

We love the the rustic farm house in the restaurant, the causal charm but superb food and complex menu. Do not underestimate the kitchen it is 1st rate. Portion are great, bread amazing and waiters very attentive and know the menu. Be careful the waiters are great sales servers and you can over order. Ossobucco outstanding with great presentation, veal prepared if you were in Milan and sides are just right sauce to blend with big meal. Wine list is fairly priced but bring 2 bottles for 4 people as it is a big meal. Corkage reasonable and keeps the bill down do not forget to tip waiter a little more if you B Y O B. He will decant your wine for you.
We did not go to the hot spot action bar side of Padi but it was hopping on Saturday night when we left. Cigars are sold at the desk and you can smoke on the patio -nice. Do not miss this great charming dinning experience. All kinds of dress works here even shorts in the summer.

“Amazing food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2012

This is a cozy restaurant with amazing food. The service is great if you are not in a hurry and want a relaxed meal. The menu is extensive with lots of choices. It's a little pricey but well worth it. My husband and I took our two boys 13 and 9 and everyone found something they loved.
If you're in a hurry be sure and mention it...otherwise relax and enjoy!

“Really, Padri?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2012

I really want to love Padri because I like the enviornment so much, but I've been 4 times now and the food simply kills it for me! They have a great Menu, but the execution of bringing it's menu to fruition is simply off!

“Exquisite Italian fare in a relaxed, warm, beautiful setting.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2012

A beautiful young couple (he's Italian and they return there every summer to improve their already commanding skills) has owned Padri for many years and if you are lucky, charming Devon will seat you and if you are luckier still, Saverio will also greet you if he is not in the kitchen. Once seated, soak up the happy and almost loud atmosphere loaded with book cases, Italian provisions and cushy velvet pillows on your banquet while you sample the incredible bruschetta spread that is an accompaniment to their focaccia and IIalian loaf bread basket. Yes, they will bring you more topping if you ask. The Devon salad was exquisite and my friends each enjoyed their entrees immensely. Fish, meat, pasta - each incredible. Dessert was also delicious. If the night is still young for you, go dancing in their adjoining martini bar. Valet parking available as you approach Padri's charming, historic "Old California" setting.
