    This was our first time at Padrino's Bistro. There were 6 of us dining and it was nice to have a round table so we could talk easily. The owner waited on us and made us feel very comfortable. Food was delicious and we will definitely come back again.

    Another GREAT meal. Padrinos never disappoints, I had the filet alaRosa, the steak was tender, perfect med rare with grilled asparagus and sweet shrimp with a light cream sauce. My husband had salmon oreganato, cherry tomato whit wine sauce it had delicious lobster ravioli and the salmon had a herb crumb topping. We wrapped half our meal . Marco was our server, he was perfect . Marco suggested homemade tres letche and a lemonchello mouse cake for dessert. They are must haves . Chef George was walking by our table and asked us how everything was, we replied delicious as always. Marco and Chef George own Padrinos and they are doing a superb job. We will see them soon😁

    Hi, Padrinos is a great find. My friend said I had to try it,so I did. Five of us went out and it was outstanding! We had reservations and are table was ready for us. Glenda greeted us in seconds, after sitting , and brought water and wine glasses with ice on the side since it is a BYOB,great for us we were prepared 🍷🍺. Marco,our waiter and owner, suggested our family appetizer, clams casino, homemade zucchini sticks and fries calamari.... Delicious!! We asked him what he suggested. We were all divided on land to sea. We ordered the Mediterranean with garlic white wine sauce. It was the whole ocean. A lobster tail,clams,muscles, calamari,scallops. 👍 Great. Venice,which had sweet diver scallops and shrimp in a wonderful cream sauce. A keeper. Chicken Tuscan, so good. Chicken trevi,which was over homemade fried gnocchi. 🥰 A stuffed pork chop special, so tender and delicious. Look at menu for ingredients,too much to text . Desserts. WOW . Homemade tiramisu, juniors brownie cheesecake and a homemade peanut butter Kandy lake,it tasted just like the hostess Kandy cakes.... We already made reservations for next week. Yum!

    We had a table for 6. We sat at a round table which was great for our group. The appetizers were very good. One appetizer was from the specials menu, the Thai Spicy Calamari was very tasty, not too spicy but spicy enough.

    My husband and I went this past Labor Day weekend and it was great! The service (thanks to Marco) was excellent and the food was even better. We had the Calamari in Thai Chile sauce and goat cheese as a starter. For the main course I had Fettuccine Meremonti and my husband had the Fried Gnochi. We were stuffed. I had to pack mine to go, which left me a little bummed since I couldn’t get desert… still, I had some coffee and even that was divine. I would highly recommend this place for a night out. The ambiance was also nice, which is important. Note, they do not have a liquor license so you will have to byob. We didn’t know this, but it didn’t spoil anything.

    All four of us really enjoyed our delicious meals. The fresh bread and soup and salads were up first before the perfectly cooked tender calamari. Meals of chicken vodka parm, seafood misto, chicken Toscano and pork chop costelleto could not have been better. Our server Marco was awesome. Can’t say enough but we will be back!

    There was a party of 25 that came in while we were in the middle of our dinner and it was very loud. We were toward the end of our dinner, but if we just started our dinner it would have been too loud for us. Especially when there were no doors, only curtains to separate the party from the rest of the restaurant. Something to consider if they want to cater to big parties, the noise level for the rest of the restaurant. Service was great and food was very good!
