The restaurant is well located, in the heart of Bouillon, interior is worn and old, the owners are very friendly, but their staff, which seem to be students or seasonal staff are not friendly at all! Food was average, pizza was under-cooked, no seasoning, Gnocchi were ok, but not exceptional, the sauce was too acid. A bit pricy too, but... More

In Il Padrino we had the best meal in Bouillon. Food is delicious and the prices are fair. Staff is friendly and service is quick. Pet-friendly restaurant. Highly recommended!

We tried this Italian restaurant when we found surprisingly little choice in Bouillon. We had dinner, consisting of Minestrone Soup, Mixed Fish/Scampi and Pizza, which while adequate, was nothing to brag about. Service was really rather slow.

OK place, nothing amazing but if you want to fill up at a reasonable price its great. food was tasty enough, but seemed the whole place was in a rush. The service was quick and cheerful and is in a good central location.

We love eating seasonal or local food when we can so this wasn't a restaurant on the top of our list. However, after a few days of heavy wild game dishes some Italian is a good change of pace. We had a spaghetti dish with a tomato and garlic sauce, and a cannelloni-lasagna dish. Both were fine but came out... More

We went in for a pizza on a friday evening, but after checking the menu, we all went for pasta and I myself went for the escalope. The escalope was delicious, as was the pasta my friends were having. Combine that with the friendly service and the good prices (except for wine, which I thought was expensive), and you have... More

The place was quite crowded, but we got a good place to sit and didn't have to wait too long to get our pizza's. All of the waitresses (but one) were friendly and came by to check from time to time to see if everything was fine. Prices are okay.

Expensive but okay starter (antipasti, all by all 12 pieces of meat to be shared...) and one very nice pizza and unfortunately one extremely salty pizza. My partner ate a third of her pizza and felt sick for hours and thirsty for more than a day. Wine in bottle was good.

The place is nothing fancy, a nice, clean, family and dog friendly Italian restaurant. The pizza was fabulous but the staff were a bit brusque.

We were shown to our table by a surly waitress who made us feel like we were an inconvenience, undeterred we stayed as we had heard the food was very good, this was the case and they easily have the widest ranging menu in bouillon. It was busy and the staff appeared rushed and abrupt. Sadly we had no desire... More
