Padrino's Italian Ristorante
Between the exceptional service, the unrivaled wine selection, and the remarkably fresh meals, you’ll quickly discover why this is a Grande Prairie fine-dining favourite. For a memorable evening out with family or friends… or just because it’s Wednesday and you deserve it, there is no better place.
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.
Padrino’s was a wonderful overall experience. Amazing service, delicious food, refreshing drinks! Highly recommended 👍🏻
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.
There was a minor issue with one of our dishes, we brought this to the waitresses attention and she told us that the meal was free.. blown away!
Scallops where under cooked , calamari was not properly cooked they where muchy , spegathie was good and pene was good also
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.
Food and service are always fantastic, we like to go here for special occasions
Can't believe we have lived in GP for over 13 years and this was our 1st time eating here! We will be back! It's our new favorite restaurant! Food was amazing, service was great!
Everything was fantastic like always. Server was outstanding and had a fantastic sense of humour. My wife and I really enjoy date night here.
Nice date night great food
Great service good food good friends
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.
Had a great date night
We celebrated a birthday and I have to say that Brendan made it the best night ever. The food was amazing and the service was fantastic!
Was amazing service
Had Baily as our server he was fantastic very polite and knew answers to our question with out hesitation
The food was delicious. Our server Jhim was very nice and did a great job. Definitely be back sooner than later.
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.
Decent food, very poor service.
Food was good and service was good as usuall
Our anniversary dinner was excellent. The staff were very attentive and knew their offerings well. The daily special sounded so good, I just had to have it.
Very disappointed , it’s was probably the worst service . It’s such a shame that the ambience and the reviews set a different picture than the cold food and the service .
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.
The service and food was terrific! We had special and pasta, all were great
Excellent ambiance and food. the service was a bit off but not rude or disrespectful. Portion size was abundant. Wine was excellent. Noise and lights perfect level. Booth was comfortable
Our first visit and it won’t be our last. Excellent atmosphere, service and food.
food and service first class as always . never a bad experience at padrino's
So good ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Some of the best food GP has to offer.
We went for our anniversary dinner. Food was amazing as were the recommended drinks.
Great first visit, food was awesome! The creme brûlée was unreal. Will visit again .
Great ambiance, great food and good service. Was a good restaurant to be able to enjoy good food and drink while visiting with friends. Be sure to make a reservation if planning to go on a Friday or Saturday evening as it can get quite busy.
Date night my wife and I go out ones a month
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
Fabulous waiter, excellent service, well presented, Italian fare.
Food was amazing. Service was alright. It was costly but worth every penny. Highly recommend the ravioli.
The food was amazing as usual, the service was great, and the atmosphere is perfect for date night.
Best spot in grande prairie for a date night! The service is always great and the food is amazing.
Excellent Italian fare, good portion sizes and fantastic wines. Try the pasta dishes always an excellent choice.
Thank you so much. We hope to see you again!
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!
Thank you so much for the review David. We are so happy to hear you had an excellent experience when dining with us. We hope to see you again!
the food was excellent as always. everything was excellent.
Thank you so much for the review. We will see you again!
