Review of Martini Italian Bistro Paddock Shops Louisville - Louisville Article
Dining at Martini Italian Bistro at the Paddock Shops in Louisville Follow @nyccitiview
As my date and I were finishing up our much-needed shopping spree, our hunger started getting the best of us. We had spent the day out east trying to find respective outfits for our friend’s wedding the following weekend and hadn’t planned for dinner. We decided to try this restaurant across the way called Martini Italian Bistro, which is located in the Paddock Shops lifestyle center (formerly The Summit) and we couldn’t have picked a better spot!

The ambiance of this restaurant was impeccable and the service we had was undeniably exceptional. The servers were very welcoming and explained the made-from-scratch kitchen menu to us with detail that had our mouths' watering by the second sentence. Their world-class chefs serve up a wide variety of Italian dishes made with “Kentucky Proud” ingredients, so I decided to try the recommended Lasagna while my date's pescatarian lifestyle was subsequently satisfied with the baked pasta and shrimp plate. The portions we received on our plates were massive; I only ate about one third of mine, while my date attempted to take on her bucket-sized meal.
The drinks are also amazingly smooth and delicious at Martini Italian Bistro at the Summit in Louisville. I asked our server about a few different cocktails before ultimately deciding on the “Grapetini” and once again, I was blown away by how much I enjoyed it... And I normally don’t even drink martinis! My date ordered the “Bellini Martini” and much like me, couldn’t get enough of it.
If I could recommend any restaurant in the city, I would strongly recommend Martini Italian Bistro, easily one of the best Louisville Italian restaurants anywhere in the city.
