As usual the the food was spectacular, service was great and atmosphere is intimate enough to make a good connection with your dining company. My most trusted first date location, never a miss.

Great food and service! I ordered the spaghetti and house salad, which was excellent. After dinner we had the Dark Chocolate Amaretto Cherry Pie, which was also amazing! Waitress was great and very knowledgeable of dishes and wines. All of the staff were professional and treated their guest like a VIP. Can't wait to go back!

Great service and the food is outstanding. They run a nice business with a quality product and an attention to detail. It doesn’t look like much when you drive up, but it’s a hidden gem.

The beef carpaccio was so lush and rich , it almost melted in your mouth. The carbonara was classical in preparation with the egg on top/ mix for the perfect creaminess! The scallops were prepared perfectly so tender and meaty! The clams were a treat like I have never had before - stuffed with spicy sausage and a broth that was perfect for dipping the complimentary bread! And do start your meal off with the cocktail martini with Campari in it! Delicious! And the Aperol Spritz reminded me of my visit to Florence for a delightfully refreshing cocktail. Everything was fantastic- worthy of repeat visits for sure!

My waiter was fantastic, and the restaurant is beautiful with great drinks... but that’s all. The menu is small and VERY overpriced. They brought out the absolutely smallest portion of food I have ever received in any restaurant, and it didn’t even taste good. $20 for a tiny bowl of bland spaghetti. No salad, no soup. Bread is included with really good butter and basil oil. That’s bad when the free bread is the only food I thought was pleasant. If you want to impress a date with beauty and how much money you spend on them, and want to leave filling nice and light, this is your place. We left the restaurant and went to second dinner. All four of us were completely hungry after we left AND WE HAD AN APPETIZER. Unacceptable to spend $180 on dinner and have to go eat afterwards.

Once you've eaten Italian in Italy...many times the US experience does not live up to it. Well, that changed Saturday evening when we ate at Patrono. The staff were so very helpful with guidance on the wine list and the menu. Since many of their names and descriptions were true Italian in nature...we needed some help. My wife had their spaghetti and Italian sausage dish and I had the Carbanera with scallops...OUTSTANDING!! It is a small place with a nice looking bar area...so reservations are probably a must. Didn't try the desserts, but I bet they were wonderful. Jarret was outstanding as our server.
We'll be back...a very special dining experience.

We had a wonderful evening experience from start to finish. Everything from the food to the service to the cocktails was on point. I am not even an Italian food fan, but everything was so delicious. There were great vegetarian choices as well. Tamara was really knowledgeable about the menu items and different wine selection, and contributed to the overall experience. I will be back to dine again soon.

I love this place, but it had been a while since we’d been. I won’t let that happen again! Our server was helpful and personable. She recommended the Carbonara and it was fantastic. Patrono will go back on our regular rotation. Highly recommend.

This was our first experience at Patrono’s. It was great! Food was enticing and delightful. Our server was just right...and had a great knowledge of the wines available. When we arrived the pre-theater folks created a high energy noisy start, but with a half hour, it was quiet and relaxing. This is a popular place and now I understand why.....I expect it will become a fairly frequent dinner spot for us, but I plan to visit on weekdays....

Patrono is our favorite OKC special occasion place right now. Environment is small and cozy, wine list is amazing, as is the food. I just feel so relaxed when I’m there. We’ll go back over and over.

Patrono was wonderful as always!! From the time Robert greets you at the door through the entire meal (especially with Tamera as your server), you’ll feel like you’re at home, sampling Chef Krell’s fantastic creative dishes!
