Thank goodness we booked to eat here on a Sunday evening - the restaurant was completely full & they were turning people away. The staff were friendly & knew the menu well. The food was all delicious with generous sized portions. We’ll definitely be back.

The people are very kind; the proposed meals are fresh, reasonably good and tasty. It’s a nice place to go, not better than any other restaurant... Many people celebrates their birthday (4 on the evening). Not sure to go again; surely not for Italian friends.

Lovely food and very attentive staff in a warmly welcoming atmosphere. Good range of dishes available at reasonable prices. Four of us all enjoyed different choices from the menu. We look forward to a return visit as soon as practicable.

I have been visiting Padrino with family and friends for several years. The varied and reasonably priced menu is of the highest standard and the £9.95 set price two course menu can only be described as remarkable value for money.” Service is impeccable and attentive...More
