Padri Restaurant Review

: Padri is what might result if a Tuscan farmhouse were redone as a restaurant by a team of martini-drinking boomers. (Actually, they did the makeover on a onetime gas station.) A member of the Italian restaurant family that includes such spots as Il Moro, Locanda Veneta, Ca' del Sole and Ca'Brea, this pretty place is set in tranquil Agoura Hills. The interior, with its appealing amber light and tolerable noise level, is comforting, as is the food. Hearty dishes like spaghetti with veal and ricotta meatballs, and braised lamb shank with red wine sauce and spinach gnocchi, share billing with innovations such as a heirloom tomato carpaccio with pistachios, endive and sesame-crusted tuna. A decent wine list offers selections from America and Italy.
