We have been going to Padrinos for years. It’s our “special place” in GP. Have never had a bad experience. The service was and always is fantastic. But, for the first time ever, (we were out for our anniversary), our meals were not at “Padrino’s level” that we have come to enjoy. Appetizers were good, but the halibut was very dry/over cooked and the beefsteak was the same. I just hope that our next visit is a little better.

The food was very good, and the price point was okay, but the restaurant wasn’t busy yet we spent a bit of time waiting to get the food server’s attention. When they aren’t busy, I think they use the time to catch up on other tasks.

The rack of lamb is excellent. Most of our party either ordered it as their primary plate or shared someone else’s. The atmosphere is suitable for most guests of all types. We have had good experiences here in general. The only qualm was a lack of water at our table. We always had wine and the server did a good job of keeping our wine glasses full but water was hard to come by.

Unfortunately, unlike a good Italian restaurant the white/ rose and I was told all there sauces except the tomato based ones, are thickened with cornstarch. Good restaurants nearly never use cornstarch in anything.

Service was pretty slow and appetizers were cold. Meals were hot and delicious though.
Also charged for a meal that no one ordered and didn’t know till later when talking about what everyone had. Should have checked the bill before we left.

Went there for the ravioli and it was sold out. Heard another table order something else and it was sold out as well. Host was very friendly. Server was meh. Nothing crazy. Ordered something different and it was pretty good.
It was super dead so not sure how they would be sold out. It was very disappointing and I wanted to leave because that was the whole reason I made reservations for there. And maybe the server could let you know upon greeting you instead of wasting time with getting drinks then taking order.

Great service, lots of laughs, good recommendations and her description of portion sizes was right on. The Arancini was light and tasty, lasagna was a huge & tasty portion. I had the linguine with chicken pesto sauce, couldn't finish as it was truly filling. Definitely will be back next time in GP

Beautiful restaurant. We loved our drinks and don’t get me started on the food. It was amazingly delicious and beautifully presented, too. We would recommend this restaurant to couples for date night or a nice dinner out with friends. Not recommended for children unless they’re quiet and respectful, it’s not a family restaurant :)
Try the gnocchi and risotto!
