"As a resident of Cody, visitors often ask me to recommend places to eat. I rarely did so until il Padrino opened and began offering the most consistant great dining experience in Cody, Wyoming combining great food, terrific service, and a pleasant atmosphere.
"I've sampled the Baked Lasagna, Pizza, Penne a la Vodka and most recently - the Rib Eye Steak. All four dishes were properly prepared, flavorful and satisfying. The steak was a great surprise. It turns out Cody's Italian restaurant may very well be serving the best steaks in town."
