We were a large group who unexpectedly arrived at this charming little restaurant. It was a small piece of Italy in Salzburg. The menu was extensive. The staff extremely friendly and efficient and the warm bread was just amazing. When I commented on it, they brought a second complementary serve for free. Great service! I would usually go looking for... More

We enjoyed our meal. Good range of dishes to choose from. Pizzas have nice thin crusts. My wife enjoyed the Veal Scallopine and my daughter enjoyed the gnocchi. Decent wine and beer selection. Friendly service with staff happy to help translate to English.

This restaurant is very popular so we went early at 6 pm. First impressions is that It is very typically Italian styled and the waiters and waitress are really welcoming and friendly upon arrival. Lots of inside seating with daily specials written on chalkboards and placed around the rooms. Nothing was too much of a impost for the service staff,... More

Visited two nights running and greeted both times as if honoured guests. Food superb and the atmosphere great. very popular with the locals, so would recommend booking. The first night it was dark outside looking as if shut, whilst inside it was full. Had to wait in the bar for a table. GREATLY RECCOMMENDED

this restaurant came highly recommended by a Salzburg resident who is a regular patron. We went on a weeknight, and the place was not crowded...few people sitting inside and empty tables outside. We were seated immediately, and our order was taken promptly. they brought my glass of wine and my husband's sparkling wafter, but not my water. They brought our... More

When I went there it happened that it was raining and unfortunately it wasn't available inside, but they managed to seat us outside in a covered area. I ordered Spaghetti Frutti di Mare. Excellent food and service. Staff are very friendly

Fabulous service! Homely, welcoming atmosphere! Staff are very friendly, helpful and speak English, Italian and German! Best Italian meal to date! Food presentation is excellent. Flavours and smells that invade the senses in a good way! One day I'll be back

During a thunderstorm we went here, recommended by our hotel, and it was nothing to regret, We did not reserve a table in advance so when w got there we had to wait for about 10 minutes, While we waited, the owner(?) came with a glass of drinks for all of us, some sparking wine for me and my wife...

I confess that I found the restaurant situation in Salzburg to be rather bleak until we came across Il Padrino. I have eaten at Italian restaurants across the world and I would say that this is the best that I have come across outside of Italy. The ambiance is very pleasant, the staff is very friendly and efficient, the wine... More
