Il Padrino Ristorante Cork Review

Hey Dawls,

Last week Philip came up with a great idea to just head into town, have a nice meal and some drinkies 🙂 Totally random but aren’t they always the best nights 😉

So we decided to try out Il Padrino for the first time which is located at 21 Cook Street.

The minute we even got in the front door we were greeted and had some craic telling us ‘no reservation lads no? sorry can’t help ye’ lol he was messing, he sat us down to our table by the window. Straight away the atmosphere was magical because I actually felt like I was abroad between the decor of a typical Italian restaurant and the candle on the table it was just beautiful and had a great vibe!


Philip being the bestest boyfriend ever as usual, ordered a bottle of prosecco for us which was so yummy and just with the setting and everything it was really romantic!

We had a major nose through the menus to see what we were going to have, because im now vegan/vegetarian I had to be carefull with what I ordered, but they were so helpful and kind! The man serving us was literally so nice every time he left the table I was like ‘awwww’. We went with these two meals Carbonara for Philip and Fussili Premevera for myself 🙂

When the food was dropped down to our table myself and Philip were drooling! It just looked and smelt amazing, we couldn’t wait to eat it but of course I had to take a photo first 😉

Okay so when I say it was delicious, I mean absolutely divine!! It tasted even better than it looks if that’s even possible! We were able to just chill out and have our chats while sipping on our presecco afterwards and enjoy every minute of it. It was so relaxing and romantic. I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you haven’t tried it our yet, perfect for date nights 😉 The staff went up and beyond to cater to us and even gave us two free shots of some sort which was so nice of them.

We will definitely be back soon Il Padrino , that’s a promise 🙂

Lots Of Love,
