No complaints here! We had really good pizza, mussels, pasta with chicken and a very good prawn risotto. All very tasty. Good service. Very traditional but they don't pretend to be anything else. Reasonable value.

We thoroughly enjoyed our three course meal. The food was fresh and flavoursome. I would recommend the sambuca prawns for starters. Price was reasonable also.

Just leaving after our second time going there. Fantastic. Will recommend to anyone. The amount of food you get for the price is perfect. The flavours were rich as always. Absolutely perfect meal.

Il Padrinos provide a brilliant food service but their booking/reservation system has a lot to be desired. In our case - a booking was made and confirmed for a certain number of people a couple of weeks in advance. This was acknowledged by the staff...More

Very busy restaurant which is always a good sign. Seemed to have a local trade and knew clients. Service was great and menu to suit everyone. Will definitely visit again when I'm the city.
