Padrino Pizza (now closed)

by - November 14, 2018

We were delighted to be invited* out to try Padrino Pizza, a new pizzeria on the Nethergate.  We have both been super busy with work and haven’t had the chance to catch up properly in a while so it was the perfect opportunity for a relaxed evening out without my little vegan.

When we arrived it was quite quiet with just a few tables in, it’s a small space which is perfect for a cosy meal.  We got a little table near the window so we could watch Dundee go by while we caught up.  We were given a couple of menus, but we couldn’t see anything vegan!  When the waitress came back we asked her what vegan options there were available.  It turned out that all the vegetarian options could be made vegan by substituting cheese for vegan cheese. 

I went for the Zucchini E Finocchio, it was delicious, I’m not usually a fan of courgettes but they were so tasty and the pizza was huge.  Jilly went for the Margherita and I even got a couple of slices of hers too,  it was SO good and at only £5 for hers, it's fantastic value.  We shared a portion of sweet potato fries and they were super tasty too. 

We could see our pizzas being made, it’s such a small kitchen area you can see them going in and out of the pizza oven and it made it feel really cosy and relaxed.  They didn’t have any vegan desserts so it would be great to see something sweet on the menu in the future.  It would also be a lot easier for vegans if they had a vegan menu/vegan options on the menu so that it was clear what is suitable and what isn’t.  We had a lovely evening, exactly what we needed after a busy few weeks!
