There’s some new pizza in town, and it goes by the name of Padrino.
Owner Marcello Pascal tells us that the new restaurant, located at 450 5th Avenue, is striving to resurrect the Brooklyn pizzerias of old, by bringing classic, quality pies to the neighborhood.
In addition to traditional pizzas, salads and heros, they have an intriguing dessert called the Nutella Lovers Pie, that comes with a sprinkling of powdered sugar, and your choice of fresh strawberries, bananas or marshmallows. Yes, please.
Be sure to stop by Padrino and welcome Marcello and crew to South Slope.
Padrino Pizzeria is located at 450 5th Avenue (between 9th and 10th Streets). Free delivery and takeout. For more information or to place an order, call 347-987-3331.
