Patrono Italian Restaurant
Located right in the heart of the Arts District, Patrono brings rustic Italian cuisine to downtown Oklahoma City for a rustic dining experience simultaneously elegant and comfortable.
Begin your rustic Italian journey with the straightforward Patrono Salad, a mixed romaine featuring spicy mustard dressing that’s not to be missed. Follow the salad with beef carpaccio, or perhaps one of the cheese or meat platters. For both platters, choose up to three options; five classic Italian cheeses for the cheese platter or house-cured prosciutto di Parma, mortadella, soppressata or bresaola for the meat platter.
Much like their cured meats, the pasta and bread at Patrono are all house-made. Choose from classics like Spaghetti Puttanesca, Bacatini Amatriciana or the delightful Orecchiette Calabrese. Beyond pasta, try the steak frittes or grilled pork porterhouse.
Be sure to ask about the special, whether it’s osso bucco, gnocchi, caponata, cipollata or putting together a porchetta for Sunday dinner, the creative chefs at Patrono are always working on an Italian feature to spotlight.
Save room for one of Patrono’s three expertly prepared desserts, cannoli, lemon or almond cake. Pair one of these delights with a cup of espresso and a house made digestif, limoncello, grappa or fennelcello for the perfect finish to your evening’s rustic Italian adventure.
The wine menu at Patrono unapologetically features a broad selection of exclusively Italian wines. Although there may be many unfamiliar offerings, don’t be intimidated, whether picking a wine or selecting the right dish, the helpful staff is patient and delight in creating the perfect dining experience for each customer.
