New York-style pizzeria now open in University District

A brand new pizza spot has opened its doors for OSU students, and, well, anyone else who’s hungry.

Padrino Pizzeria held its grand opening yesterday. The eatery is located at 20 E. 13th Ave., in the University District.

According to co-owner Ilyass Berraho, the new concept will serve New York-style pizza, in addition to individual slices, which Berraho predicted will be their best-selling item. The menu of the campus-area eatery will also feature pasta, paninis and more.

For Berraho, who owns the concept with partner Redouane Lahmoudi, the location for the new pizzeria was originally purchased in September of 2021, and the duo took several years to convert the space into a restaurant.

“Padrino is not just a business for us, it’s a dream we worked on and made it happen,” Berraho said. “It’s our first business, we want to take good care of and serve all Ohio State students.”
