Open for Business: Padrino's Pizza, 450 Fifth Avenue

It was only a week ago that I first got word that a new pizzeria, Padrino's, was in the works in the space last occupied by a small electronics shop on Fifth between Ninth and Tenth, and on Saturday the slice joint opened for business.

It's a fairly straightforward, no-frills space, with a counter displaying the pies up front and a decent-sized, if sterile, seating area in the back.

The menu is about what you would expect from a New York pizzeria, with a small selection of appetizers like garlic bread, mozzarella sticks, and chicken rolls, a few salads, heros including meatball parm and grilled chicken with broccoli rabe, and your usual assortment of penne and linguini in sauce. There are also baked dishes like stuffed shells and lasagna, and entrees like veal parm served with your choice of pasta. Fried calzones are also available.

Pizza is clearly the main draw, though, and plain pies sell for $14 (slices are $2). Sicilian and "Grandma"-style pies are also available, with traditional toppings going for $3, as well as some more oddball ones like salad, buffalo chicken, pancetta and arugula, and sausage with broccoli rabe. There's also a Nutella Lover's Pie, topped with Nutella and your choice of strawberry, banana, or marshmallow.

Padrino's, 450 Fifth Avenue Brooklyn NY 11215. 347-987-3331. Free Delivery.

It better a dollar a slice if its in the south slope. dumpster diving at talde is still cheaper for dem lowlifes.

another step closer to de-saddening that intersection.

Hopefully.

I've been eating there for the past few days, and they're good. $2 a slice is good, but $2 for a good slice is even better. Glad it tastes better than that shit hole on 7th St. Remember how good Albanese was before those new guys bought it? Those were the days, man, those were the fuckin' days

I didn't realize Albanese changed owners at some point, though I did notice a marked change in their pizza. The first time I ate there, it was instantly my favorite in the neighborhood, and stayed that way for a long time. Then one day it just wasn't.

Great new addition to all the pizza places in the slope. Great pizza, Tried both sicilian pie and specialty slices. Both were great. Gonna try the fried calzone soon.
Good prices also.
Much better deal than what the "electronic" store it replaced was offering.
