As a vegetarian who loves Eggplant Parmigiana, and only eats whole wheat pasta, Padrino's meets my needs perfectly. While they don't have a large vegetarian menu (aside from various pasta and pizza variations), the two entrees I tried were very good. Padrino's is actually a 30-40 minute drive for me, so it works as a nice midway restaurant to meet friends who live south of Hamilton.

Their complementary bread appetizer was a huge hit with everyone at the table. It is also a plus that they are a BYOB.

My book club met here for a meeting. We were seated right away. Our BYOB which was wine was opened and chilled. We each selected from the menu. For five of us the bill was 80.00 with tip. You can't beat that for such great food.

I’ve been a long time Padrino’a patron but not happy with the food the last couple of years. Not sure what happened since it was always my favorite Italian restaurant. The other night the food was great again. Hope it stays this way.

A great restaurant in a small shopping center. Once inside you could be in any upscale Italian restaurant. Wait staff was attentive and food was excellent. Prices were very reasonable. I’m looking forward to taking my adult children here when they visit.

The ambiance is non existent. One place setting was dirty with caked on old food. The service was mediocre. They don’t have a liquor license but sell terrible wine by the bottle.

Even with reservations, we waited 15 minutes for a table. Three large family parties were going on. Somehow restaurant should notify open table when this happens.
