La Padella Ristorante
Great little neighborhood place! Owner is great and overseeing things.
Beautiful summer night to eat al fresco. Wonderful dinner and service, and very nice people too :)!
Dinner was excellent.
Food and service were good. I would recommend this place.
The only thing I totally forgot about was cash only. Luckily I had the cash on me but I would have been very embarrassed if I didn’t!
The food was very good. It seemed like they increased the outdoor seating but were unable to increase the staff. This led to us waiting almost an hour for our appetizer. They were out of a number of menu items including Pelligrino and lemonade.
We enjoyed a fabulous meal with friends while dining outside.
Great food. And excellent service.
They need more servers & this isn’t bc of covid. We went to this restaurant in 2019 & same issue.
Amazing food. Helpful hardworking staff- dedicated. Very service oriented. Pleasure to dine here. Must go!
Just an overall horrible experience. They were short staffed, and over-booked. They were not prepared for the reservations they had. I am a long time customer of this establishment and typically do not complain unless something is really wrong. There was no host/hostess to greet people. They ran out of bread. The bathroom was overflowing which I had heard was an issue for three days. The servers were over-worked and could not keep up with the tables. People were anxious and waiting for their food. We actually left mid way through the dinner since we had no food and could not use the bathroom. The restaurant is two blocks from our house and we used to go every weekend and now will never go back. I understand there is a shortage of staff in the industry so book accordingly. Keep the customers who come happy. Don’t charge an extra $4.00 for bread because you have “ran out”. People are reasonable but you need to be fair and reasonable also. Too many good places to go locally to ever go back here.
Unfortunately we had a poor experience Monday evening. The staff were very kind and we felt bad for them but we waited very long for our food and it was not the usual high quality we have had in the past and expect for the price. It seemed as if they accepted too many reservations.
The food was excellent and the waitress was great. However, the restaurant had no working restroom. For an upscale restaurant, I was extremely disappointed in this aspect. In addition, the food took an excessive amount of time to be served. It was over an hour until appetizers and nearly 2 hours until dinner. However, our large party was satisfied with our meals and the waitress was friendly and lovely. I would assume the restaurant would consider a complimentary dessert or something due to these issues, which hindered the evening. I would consider returning because the food was good.
Calamari Appetizer is fantastic, love the addition of shrimp and hot peppers.
The service was much better than past experiences there. The fish is so so - you should probably order pasta there. The calamari appetizer was very good though
We sat outside, around the corner and staff was extremely attentive. We had an issue with one dish and server was extremely apologetic and accommodating.
Delicious. Absolutely wonderful Italian food. The grilled calamari is a must though to warn you: you’ll never want to order it anywhere else again. It was that good.
Next time we’re in the area we’re definitely coming back.
It’s byob and the waitstaff are friendly and well-informed.
This was the worst dining experience I had in 7 years of dining in Ventnor. First, a requested lemonade was never served. Secondly, the wait time for our entrees was 1 and 1/2 hours long. One server apologized. Thirdly all the sauces were the same basic tomato sauce, there was no trace of a blush sauce on the lobster ravioli as had been promised. All of the sauces were way too salty. The mussels were inedible either too old or frozen. All of this for some very expensive entrees.
There were 2 good things. The appetizers were great and the waitress had the foresight to bring the dinner of the child in our party her dinner with our appetizers.
One member of our party complained because the service was also terrible. Unlike any good restaurant would do we were offer, no type of compensation.
Great service. Food was excellent!
We got seated very quickly. The service and food were very good. The fried calamaria appetizer was delicious. I had the shrimp and risotto and my husband had one of the specials, loberster ravioli with crab. Both were very good. We were full and did not order dessert. Highly recommend.
We ordered the special of the night - red snapper with shrimp and clams. The snapper was fishy and the clams were salty
Excellent food and fabulous service!!!
Worst meal in years.
Always delivers a great dining experience! What a way to start off the 2021 beach season. We’ll be back again and again
We loved it there! It was our first time and we were pleasantly surprised that we’ve not been there previously. The host was amazing and has a great personality!
A perfect night! Food, service - all a delight. Justina is amazing! We love her. Thank you for always making our experience so wonderful!
The owner couldn’t have been nicer. My wife and I sat outside and it was getting cold. We didn’t feel comfortable eating inside. They packed our food and comped us dessert. The food was incredible. We highly recommend this restaurant
Great food! Great service.
Food was very good but it was strange when we walked in because it didn’t seem open. Outdoor chairs were piled up it was hot and music wasn’t on. We were told there wasn’t any ice that night and we needed it for the drinks we brought. We had to walk across the street to get some. It eventually cooled down and the waiter put music on. It turned out to be a nice dinner but started out a little rocky.
Quaint neighborhood reasonably priced, wide variety and great food. Superb service! BYOB. Always a great night out!
LaPadella is a neighborhood BYOB and must go to when in Margate/Ventnor. Shrimp Risotto is #1 on my list. Gnocchi are great but definitely need to be a blue cheese fan.
La Padella was amazing. We had our own booth in the top corner. The food and service were outstanding! We will back again when we visit the area.
This time excelled
Love coming here
Very good quality
Safety precautions taken
This is the third time we have been at the restaurant. I really enjoy the food but the service is horrible. We waited for at least a half an hour for our first course. We then waited an additional 45 minutes for our main course. Our reservations were for 7:15
and we finished dinner at 10:15 . That is way too long.
Will not be returning.
7:15 reservation and got our appetizer at 8:30. Our friend ordered iced tea and we had to ask waitress 4 times before she brought it.
Service was great. Good was delicious. There was four of us and everyone had a great meal!
Had a great meal at La Padella this past Sunday night. Started with an appetizer of Frito Misto which was lightly fried calamari, shrimp and small pieces of breaded hot pepper.. I had a fish special of flounder franchise over cappellini with a light lemon sauce, was delicious!! My girlfriend had a Veal dish with roman artichokes,shrimp, capers,lemon white wine sauce over capellini!! Was delicious!! Our server, think her name was Elena, she was one of the best servers we've ever had, very friendly and professional with a beautiful smile!! Highly recommend la padella for a great meal and service, we will be back!!
I enjoyed La Padella outdoors dining experience. The lobster ravioli was excellent full of lobster and shrimp in the sauce. The bread was awesome and the oil fresh and perfect. We also tried the veal but wasn’t a big fan of that particular dish. That being said I would have no hesitation eating there in the future.
