favorite bartenders, fabulous food, homemade pasta, fabulous ambience, warm environment, excellent wait staff, wonderful patio
this restaurant has it all!!. the setting, ambience, service, and food were all fabulous. the food takes precedence, though...and rightly so. they serve some of the most delectable italian dishes i have had in or out of italy. the pasta is fresh, homemade, and not too heavy. the accompanying sauces are flavorful and well-suited to the dish. i was surprised that such an obscure nook of agoura could offer so much in quality, personality, and style. i can't wait to go back and bring friends.
Reservations - Who cares? Not Padri.. We left in disbelief before even being seated! I made reservations here for my wedding anniversary. This was no easy task! The girl who answered the phone acted annoyed and aloof. Upon arrival, we found that reservations don't even matter! We still had to wait 30 minutes among other complaining patrons who had also made reservations. Finally we were offered to sit at probably the worst table in the restaurant. One that should have been reserved for walk-ins, not reservations. I explained that it's my anniversary and asked politely to wait for a better table. The young hostess replied very snobbishly that I will need to wait at least 45 minutes for a different table, but first tried to convince me that the table was actually favored among diners. I don't know what the food tastes like, and never will. I got better service from Padri's valet parking.
Excellent. Padri's ambiance is cozy and inviting. Professional staff and friendly, warm environment. I had a salad with scallops wrapped in bacon. It was perfectly tossed with a warm mozarella dressing-not heavy. I highly recommend Padri's if you want Italian that won't weigh you down.
