Friendly and amusing staff though their English can be improved. The pasta was really delicious and the atmosphere is nice!

Was recommended to us by a local, and it didn't disappoint. Our family of 4 had awesome food and the service by everyone, but mainly Giovanni, was incredible. though he didn't speak great English, he made sure we had everything we needed and even pulled...out his phone to use Google Translate to make sure we were on the same page with everything. It's not every day that I've had service like this.More

My husband and I had supper here on a Wednesday night. Service and food was excellent! Even though we struggled with speaking German the staff was very accommodating.

We arrived in Salzburg from Munich via train rather late at night and got super hungry. Although the hotel we stayed, H+ Salzburg is located right in the central station of Salzburg has an extremely close Eurospar, supermarket that also has ready to eat meal,...we wanted to try to eat “proper” food that tasted great. We looked up reviews on internet and saw Italian resto, il Padrino which was only around 450 meters away from our hotel. The food we had was yummy!! I had pizza and my husband had spaghetti carbonara. We also had the house-wine (1/4). The interior is very God Father-like design, which is awesome! Chef and Italian staff or probably one of the owners were also very nice!More

This was very strange experience for me and my wife. First of all the entrance wasn't clear enough and had us confused since it looked like its gates are closed. Then we entered and after we have been seated and had our order, the waitress...came and asked us if we want a normal pizza for free. We said ok after she said it will be instead of the pizza we ordered. It was when we finished the pizza when we found out that our first order also came out. We were so full but took a few more pieces. That's what happens when the crew can't speak English well. The pizza was tasty and affordable.More

We had a great pizza lunch. The pizza salame was great and maybe the best one I ever had. What we could not finish, the waiter offered to put it in a doggy bag. Very thoughtful. We sat outside in the garden. Inside it looked...nice too.More

Rang this morning and booked a table for two people at 7pm this eve after having tried to get in last night but had been turned away as they were full Took a while for the guy to acknowledge the fact that I HAD reserved......he kept telling me they had no space until 9pm until I pointed out our reservation on their books He then pointed generally to an area of seating ... we presumed we should go and sit down (always nice to be shown to a table ???) Ordered a glass of white wine and a Coke Zero Got a spritzer and an ordinary coke Another waiter then rushed over and took my drink away and replaced it with what we had ordered (no such luck with the coke) Had to wait a while for bread (everyone around us was handed a basket of bread with their menu) The food was reasonable (beef carpaccio very good) but my daughters pizza was very bland Asked for the bill twice and eventually got it after waiting over 20 mins In summary they got a zero tip from me (which is unusual) and the waiter in question could have not made us feel more unwelcome if he’d tried I’d give this a miss if I were you Oh and the restaurant was pretty empty until we left about 10m ago .... what’s all that about ???? Fully booked ??? Dream on !!More

Walked up and asked to come in first gentlemen said they didn’t open for 20 minutes, me and my family (with kids) waited outside for 20 minutes and when we went to enter the second time the gentlemen told us he was booked solid with...reservations. We walked to another restaurant and ate, and walking back by we saw half the restaurant empty and not busy.More

This restaurant has a nice atmosphere and friendly (Italian) staff. The food was ok, but was compromised by a few issues; The pregrated Parmesan cheese that was left on the table was tasteless and the Lasagna was served luke warm. The house wine had a...yeasty taste. Furthermore, the pannacotta had a way too gelly consistanse (depending on taste). The pastas we tried were ok, but did not fully meet our expectations. All in all an ok experience though.More

Family meal in this restaurant, three adults and two children. The food was delicious, the staff very welcoming of children and the service outstanding. Thoroughly recommendable and within walking distance of Salzburg train station and the H Hotel where we were staying.
