Mom, Larry and Padrinos

When my mom was in town for the wedding we decided to use our Greater Cincinnati Independents gift certificate that I won a while back and headed to Padrino...which is IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIN MILFORD! (That commercial is burned into my brain.)


Padrino is on the main street of Milford just down from 20 Brix - so if you know how to get to Milford you can't miss it!



Larry ordered the Comfort Food Special ($13 - avail Mon & Tues after 5pm) which came with a side salad. He's not much for green things but he ate it and it looked above average. 



We were all hungry so ordered the Garlic Knots as an app ($3). They weren't very good - doughy and not much flavor. The Bruno Dough from Brunos is far superior!


Larry's comfort food special was Lemon Chicken, gravy, potatoes and vegetables (along with side salad - $13). This was DELICIOUS! We were all envious and wish we'd made that selection. Another note on the comfort food - they serve it til it's gone - so don't go at 9pm and expect to get any! This coming Mon/Tues - it's Meatloaf.


Mom got The Italiano - $7.50 (thin sliced ham, genoa salami, cappicola, provolone , lettuce, roma
tomato w/ seasoned oil & vinegar). She enjoyed it and took half home for the plane ride the next morning!


I went with the pizza - as recommended by the waitress. It was 4 cheese + bacon ($11 - a special that night). I was teetering between this and pasta - I should have gotten the pasta. It looked good but I think the lack of sauce was too much - it was just dry. Although it did taste a little better reheated the next day for lunch.


Mom got some sort of chocolate heaven dessert - it was really good - very rich and heavy - like a lead weight. But it was good. That also had a to-go box for her plane ride the next day.


I went for the cannolis - I was pretty full so I only ate half of one - but I'm a cannoli fan so I had to get them. They were fine - nothing special. They were also better the next day after sitting in the fridge a while longer. No idea why.

Why Should You Go? I'd go again for the Lemon Chicken alone - it was delicious. I think the comfort food special is a good deal too. It's a nice place with a few tables outside. I don't mean to bad mouth the pizza - I just think my pizza selection wasn't the best. If we're IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIN MILFORD we might go again.

  1. I love the food at Padrino I always get the pizza and garlic knots. The only thing that I would suggest never to order is the appetizer of fried zucchini, the zucchini is paper thin and there is too much breading... did not sit in the stomach very well. But over all I love the restaurant!
