Padrino Southend is a traditional fully licensed Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria boasting a picturesque view of the seafront and overlooking the East Thames Estuary.  We have built on our reputation as one of the favourite family Italian restaurants in Southend-on-Sea by serving honest food and a hospitable attitude.

Since its opening, the restaurant has undergone major transformations blending traditional Italian elements into a modern dining experience for all age groups to enjoy.  We are proud to continue being an independent establishment with a combined experience in Italian cuisine of over 30 years.  Our extensive menu includes some of the most famous Italian dishes stretching the breadth of Italy from Milan all the way down to Sicily.  In keeping with the Italian tradition we provide a diverse range of cooking styles with much of the ingredients sourced locally.  Of course Italian food wouldn’t be authentic without sourcing the best home grown brands all the way from Italy.
