Since we were introduced toSince we were introduced to Padri last year, it has become one of our favorite restaurants. This was our first time dining there mid-week (Tuesday). We had only been there on Friday or Saturday when it was booked to capacity; so, it was a shock to see it only 1/3 full. Actually, that was nice, in that the four of us could talk without raising our voices. As always, the food was excellent and the lighting and seating were relaxing. A nice way to spend an evening!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Italian in ConejoWe had a wonderful meal. Really delicious Burata and arugula salad and some very tasty pasta's. Service was excellent and we'll be back soon6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBest antipasto anywhereMy wife and I always enjoy dinner at Padri -- fish, risotto, pastas, are all great. This time we opted for a lighter dinner -- a bowl of soup (we had two different soups; both were delicious) and then a selection of meats, cheeses and accompaniments. It was wonderful -- the highest quality antipasto I have seen anywhere. This is a great restaurant which delivers consistently great value and service.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the food, not the serviceMy complaint is about the service. When my girlfriends and I arrived (we had a reservation), I believe the woman that was at the front, she is either the manager or the owners wife, barely acknowledged our party. We are all in our 30's so it wasn't like we were a group of really young girls that just showed up.
Once we were seated, the service was OK. But then as the evening went on, it started slipping. We had empty plates on our tables for about 20 min, our water was not filled up once and they left us sitting there for a long time with nothing on our tables. No dessert menu, bill, extra drink order, nothing. For a place like this, great service is expected and should be received.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a Favorite!One of our favorite spots for romantic dinners, birthdays, anniversaries or just a casual dinner.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMI visited this restaurantI visited this restaurant very often when I was working in Calabasas. Now back after a year it was as good as before. Excellent food and service. I wish that it will open for lunch again.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
