Padrino's Pizza now inhabits the building that the fleeting Purple Rain Cafe used to occupy near the Silver Fork and Emerald City Fish and Chips on Rainier Ave. I admit, I was initially turned off by the place because of their logo:
But received a glossy full color menu/brochure/coupon pack in the mail from these guys that brought me around a bit. The clincher for me was the bold statement: FREE DELIVERY, in my delivery-neglected south end neighborhood. Good advertising!
I was recently racing the rain on an outdoor house project and decided it would be a perfect night to have dinner delivered. Ordered up an XL (had a coupon!) cheese pizza topped with broccoli and red peppers.
The pizza wasn't spectacular, but I wasn't really expecting it to be. It was, however, better than Pizza Hut or the like because it had a thin crust and a reasonable amount of cheese, and a nice list of interesting veggie toppings to choose from.
I won't be turning to these guys for honest-to-god pizza cravings (we are so pizza spoiled around here, especially with Flying Squirrel so near by), but it is fabulous to know that there is an option for delivery.
