This is my favourite restaurant! It rarely disappoints. The food is good and so is the service. I like that it is a local business too. On my last visit everything was on point! I had a chicken dish and my husband had the feature seafood pasta, both were so delicious. Our server was great and attentive. We will definitely... More

Great atmosphere great food, friendly knowledgeable staff who are always helpful if your not sure what you want. They also have a corkage program so you can bring a good bottle of your favorite wine and pay the $20 corkage fee.

We went here for dinner while staying in Grande Prairie - really awesome food! Huge portions on the calzones and they are definitely big enough for two! Wait staff was okay - place fills up so be sure to make reservations (they don't just give away booths, even though they're empty the entire 1.5 hour stay we were here.)

This is a decent place for Grande Prairie. I have dined with my family a few times and we number seven bodies from 9-64. It is kid friendly (a must for us) and the servers are very good with them. We have always left happy.

This restaurant is located within the Best Western Hotel. I've eaten here about a dozen times and have been very satisified each time. I try to choose something different each visit, like the garlic prawns or the lamb. I love to share so we usually order a couple of applies and a salad before the main course. A good wine... More

Thanks from the start. We enjoyed the service and the food. The atmosphere was warm. We felt very comfortable and the food only complimented that feeling. Maybe the only advice I would give, bigger portions. That is all. Great job thanks so much. Bryan from Ontario.

Padrino's was reported to be a quality establishment, this was not my experience. Service was slow, with no interest in one's concerns. Food was mediocre at best, and price was substantial. Not worth the effort.

I love this restaurant! It's where I will always choose to eat when we go out for a nice meal (which isn't often and makes it all the more special!) Our last waitress, Robin, was fantastic. Made our evening even better with her friendly attitude and quick wit:)

I've been here three times, and every time it was a let down. An Italian restaurant should make its own pasta. The food is boring and tasteless, and far too expensive. Not at all better than East Side Mario's or Olive Garden(which isn't a good thing!)
