We went on a night there was a party in a area that was "semi" partitioned off. Still loudish. Started with the buffalo calamari. Large portion for an app and the sauce was dipping worthy to the last drop. The pasta fagioli was tasty and in a big bowl. Had some salad with the house dressing, too sweet for me.... More

We went on Saturday night with friends who had been here before and said the food was good. We had high hopes. I ordered chicken scarpariello and my fiancee had the cowboy steak. Neither of us liked our meals. We ordered a 9 dollar piece of cake for dessert and that was bland. The service was good. The salad was... More

Food was delicious and plentiful. Good seafood and Italian dishes. Ordered dessert, almost $9-. Expensive but tasty. Wait staff was very attentive. Would recommend.

Recently had the pleasure of finding a new favorite place. On the recommendation of a friend my girlfriend and I tried Padrino's of Hamilton. The restaurant was easy to find and get located 1000' off I-195 and three miles from I-295. We started with a bottle of Pelligrino and then the special appetizer consisting of a tomato cut into wedges... More

As an earlier review stated there is no atmosphere to speak of, but that's not why you go to a restaurant. The food is. Both my husband and I got specials of the night. My husband got what was supposed to be a rib eye, but he thought was more like a strip steak done medium not medium rare as... More

We came in from out of town for a reception with about 35 family members. They have the ability to partition off the restaurant that still makes it inviting and not like you are just stuck in the back room. Food and service we great. We were there for about four hours and did not feel rushed by any means.... More

This place was recommended to me a while ago but I never made it until recently and I am glad I did. We had excellent service by waiter Rudy and had much attention from other servers and wait staff. We started off by sharing an appetizer of fried gnocchi which I had never had before. It was quite light and... More

Made a return visit with another couple for weekend dining. We were warmly greeted and seated on time for the reservation. Ordered off the menu despite some interesting specials. Our BYO was handled well with suitable glassware and ice bucket. Would recommend the calamari fritti appetizer. Our entrees consisted of 2 different fish dishes and a veal choice. All were... More

Padrino's was recommended by friends who lived in Hamilton. It's a short distance from the Grounds for Sculpture. Large menu, large portions, friendly waiters. I enjoyed my leftovers for lunch the next day just as much.

Half way point between friends from Pa to NJ. Worth the trip. Service excellent. I don't remember his name but he had a great head of gray hair. He was attentive but not intrusive. Now for the menu. Fabulous. I had the Mediterraneano that was to die for. Everyone at the table loved their meals from steak to crab cakes... More
