Reviewed yesterday NEW

visited with a friend and as always had great food and service, it was a Tuesday night so it wasn't fully booked. This is such a popular place and great value for money. I love Paolo's specials but I oftn stick to the same starter the cheesy pancakes or pate... Portions are great and house wine is a favourite.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes great quality food and excellent service, because it's what you will get from the lovely Italian couple who run this place. The menu has lots of pasta dishes, which were all appealing, but they had some great specials available (starters and mains). The cheese pancakes (starter) and Pesto lasagne (main) won't... More

We went for dinner at Casa Paolo on Saturday evening with food friends who we haven't seen in a while. The owners and staff are very welcoming and we were made to feel valued as soon as we walked in the door. The food was of a very high standard and cooked to perfection. The ambience is second to none.... More

My latest visit on Saturday night only confirmed my opinion of this Restaurant, it's fantastic, the food is amazing, the staff are very pleasant and helpful. There were eight of us for a family gathering and we had a great evening. Although a tad expensive I thouroughly recommend this place especially for a special occassion.

I love Italian food, and the food here was very good. I was a little surprised not to see typical Italian dishes such as calamari, tirimusu etc on the menu, and would have expected olives to nibble on as we waited for our table (as a group of 4 who were waiting at the same time as us did). The... More

Me and my partner absolutely love this place. As we only live 5mins walk away from the restaurant we thought we would try it out. We have since been to the restaurant on various occasions now. The food is always excellent and you can tell a lot of effort had been out in to it! Nice quaint place and staff... More

Went here for the first time and the atmosphere was amazing. Staff was very friendly. Our food was so delicious, the portions are a bit small in my opinion but OK. They don't do pizzas but lots of choice of food which was made easier with the help of the chief. We will be back for another good spend evening.

We were greeted and seated in the small but comfortable bar area where we choose our drinks and were given the menu to peruse, we were given a great description of all of the choices on offer. The...

Another great visit to Casa Paolo and we were not disappointed. The owners are fantastic - always around offering suggestions and describing dishes - which are so generous and authentic Italian. Can't fault this place. Lovely to have it in the doorstep.
