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.
