The vegetarian choices on the menu are truly fine dining not just a substitution. The Farro dish with its lovely point counterpoint of flavor was the star of the evening. The artichoke entree was grilled to perfection and the smokey crunch paird with the lovely savory sauce with a gentle touch of sweet completely in balance. This is the best vegetarian meal in OKC

Lovely restaurant - definitely our favorite Italian in OKC! Service is always impeccable and friendly. The menu and specials always offer something unique we didn't know we were craving until we saw it/heard about it! Great drinks and a cozy atmosphere. Super kudos to Robert and everyone for wearing masks and providing paper menus and demonstrating a clear concern for customer safety.

As always, the food, service, and atmosphere at Patrono was beyond compare. It is like having dinner with family -- assuming you have a FANTASTIC chef in your family and everyone is friendly and gets along! We are so happy to be able to dine at Patrono once again!

Had lunch on a Tuesday afternoon, social distancing was evident and the server wore a mask. Delicious salads and cocktails, chicken was grilled perfectly. I would highly recommend for a great quiet cozy evening with great cocktails and dinner too.

Fantastic as always, Patrono is the go to place for special occasions. Outstanding food, service, and personalized customer care.
I went there when it was snowing like crazy, and they had portable heaters for each table.
Due to Covid this time they hung up curtains to give a safe private dining experience!

I LOVE this restaurant!!! Patrono has a wonderful atmosphere and the most fantastic food. It is the perfect place for a date or a business lunch. My fiance and I went for an afternoon lunch date. If you feel like it, I would recommend splurging at this restaurant; enjoying a starter, an entree, and a dessert because everything they have is so delicious! We had the warm olives & marcona almonds, fried swiss cheese, bucatini carbonara, and a gelato sundae. I would recommend all of them!

I love Patrono. Everything that I have ever ordered is fabulous. The new caulilini is awesome. They also have one of the best wine lists in town for Italian wines. Listen to your server's recommendations.

The last time we went to Patrono, they had changed the menu so much, and not much I really liked. We didn't go back for a while. But I'm glad we did. It was the Patrono I knew and loved! We all tried a salad/starter called caulilini, all four of us didn't really enjoy. For entrees two of us had a sausage fennel pasta-a little spicy, but outstanding, a shrimp, crab pasta-also outstanding, and the carbonara-very good. For dessert the almond cake-we all thought a little dry. Hoping they expand their dessert offerings. Server, Tamara, was great, very helpful, but not overbearing. Overall, a very enjoyable meal, can't wait to go back.

Great food, service and ambience...Only a handful of tables so it makes for a great date night as they focus on their patrons. Great bread, salads, and entrees...small menu and you can tell that serves them well as the food is excellent! Great drink menu as well...looking forward to going back!

The staff was very safety conscious . They wore masks, seating was spread out with a curtain partition AND they were very aware of their distance from you. We love coming into town to eat at our favorite spot and thank you for making us feel you cared about us! Thank you Robert for getting my wife the roses for our 43rd Anniversary, you did well and made me look good!

Celebrated son's graduation from university.

For a starter we ordered Warm Olives & Marcona Almonds. Served warm and delicious. Complimentary bread with Pesto and Balsamic-infused butter was a hit too.

For salads we ordered two Mixed Green Salad and one Patrono Salad. Very, very good.

The three that are adult-age ordered Italian wine. VINO!! Big selection - Big flavor.

For entrees I ordered the Bucatini Carbonara and added spicy grilled Italian sausage and shrimp. My wife got Spicy Red Pepper Pesto with gluten-free penne and added shrimp. My daughter ordered the Mezze & Fennel Sausage. My son also ordered the Mezze & Fennel Sausage.

All Amazing! Very high-end. Everything homemade, flavorful, delightful. The presentation was immaculate. The server was professional, polite, knowledgeable, engaging, wonderful.

For dessert we ordered Budino - housemade butterscotch custard with vanilla bean whipped cream. Home Run!

A lovely experience - everyone got full - everyone felt great - we will return.

Tonight’s experience wasn’t the norm. I tried the fish special, and it was overcooked. Everything else about the plate was great, though. The service is usually better, too, but the waiter was a little off...rude, actually. Disappointed.
