Il Padrino wins plaudits on Trip Advisor 
We don’t wish to tempt fate, but of the first 28 people to review us on Trip Advisor, 26 rated us as excellent and two as very good. 
“Without a doubt this restaurant could become the best in Colchester and one of the best in Essex. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is terrific, the staff are friendly, and the owner cares and is very passionate about making sure his guests have a very good experience.” 
“Wow. Our first visit of what I am sure will be many. The food was superb, service excellent. Can’t wait to return.” 
“In a nutshell, this place is amazing. The staff were incredibly attentive and polite. I had the 'special' baked crab for starter which was incredible followed by the lobster spaghetti which again was probably the finest food I have had in a very long time. Thank you for a lovely evening.” 
“The food was superb, the service genuinely friendly and the bill at the end of the evening very reasonable considering the quality on offer.” 
“This is the (Italian) chef's first restaurant and the food is truly excellent. They are flexible with the menu adapting as requested, some good wines and prompt service so that we could get to the theatre on time.” 
It will be Christmas sooner than you think! 
Believe it or not, we are already receiving enquiries about booking for Christmas. We’ve devised a fabulous Christmas Fayre menu available from December 3rd. If you visit our menus page, all will be revealed.
