This little restaurant seems very busy. A good sign in my book. It's byo and you order from a "far to much choice" menu at the bar. That always worries me when there are as many dishes as customers.... However, our pizzas were tasty, as was the caprese salad. The pizzas come in 3 different sizes. Small, med, massive. We... More

We were recommended to eat here by friends so we had high hopes however they were soon dashed. I was starving since I had to wait over an hour for my food to come out but I soon lost my appetite after I saw what was placed on the table in front of myself. The risotto looked more like a... More

Fantastic traditional Italian pizza and pasta restaurant in the heart of Katoomba. Friendly staff, fun atmosphere and excellent food. Had a quick lunch here on a day trip to the mountains and will definitely be back. The girlfriend used to come here when she was younger so wanted to relive a memory by coming back to Papadinos, we were not... More

The restaurant looked good (judging by the line and the smell) so we decided to order a take away diner. We were told the food would be ready in 30 minutes but only got our order after 1 hour of waiting outside. The canellonis we ordered seemed handmade but in the end were very average and definitely not worth the... More

We dined at Papadino's for dinner and were very impressed with the service and food. They were extremely busy with a constant flow of people requesting tables, but we only had to wait a short time for our table, and our meal. The staff were run off their feet and cleared tables as soon as people left to accomodate other... More

We decided to have dinner at this restaurant based on the positive reviews, but unfortunately our experience was quite negative. We waited for around half an hour for a table, and when we finally got one the waiter remembered to inform us that we need to order our meals at the counter. It took another 15 minutes to order and... More

Great pizza. We went on a Tuesday evening and the place was packed from the moment we got there to the moment we left! We had to wait 45 minutes for our food but it was worth it.

We were looking for vegetarian options while staying in Katoomba. We were very happy to find Papadino's. The food was excellent and there were abundant options for the vegetarian in our group, as well as the carnivores. They don't serve beer or wine, despite what one entry on-line said, so stop in at the bottle store next door and BYO.... More

We stumbled across this place by accident and we really loved the food. We ordered devilled prawns for entree and loved it!!! It's not a fine dining restaurant but the meals are large, hearty and delicious. I intend on coming back here again on our four day trip to the blue mountains. I highly recommend this place for families and... More
