Very very happy with our experience at Il Padrino's.
Food and wine were amazing, the decor was original and unique, the service was great and we felt looked after.
The pizza was one of the best I have ever had outside of Italy.
5/5 from me!
The manager of this place deserves a medal. He had the ultimate in obnoxious customers the night we when (it wasn't us, promise).
It was a busy Saturday night, and when we arrived at 8.30, the foursome at the table next to us were just after paying their bill. An hour and a half later, they were still there. Just chatting, completely oblivious to the fact that restaurants are not charities and occassionally like to seat other customers. The manager was gracious enough to just give them a few subtle hints that they were inconveniecing him, but they went unheeded. I'm all for relaxed dining, but it's tough for restaurants to make money at the best of times, it seemed like they were going out of their way to be annoying.
Having to watch other diners be turned away because of these people was heart-breaking, because the food at Il Padrino is really great and the wine was fantastic too. Oh, and the crème brûlée is the best I've had in Cork.
Fancy and fantastic Italian restaurant in the city centre - excellent quality, very delicious food. Their lasagne is to die for - and don't get me started on the tiramisu... gorgeo.
Good, friendly and relaxed service too.
Every time I go to IlPadrino 's it is a lovely experience.
The price is good , the food consistently good , and the Staff are always helpful. It's certainly worth a visit
Too tasty food, not genuine italian. The owners are not Italians. The food is too tasty and the restaurant is full all the time. I guess they put lots of MSG in the food. I won't try it again. However, for those who doesn't care and could eat anything, the atmosphere is really nice.
Consistently good food at decent prices. The service is highly professional and very efficient. Booking is advised particularly at the weekend. The food is cooked in view of the diners which is always a good sign. We've been eating here fairly regularly for the past 5 years and have never had a bad meal. The wine list isn't overly complicated and is good value.
