New to Belleville and exploring local restaurants. We were hesitant to try Paulos as my partner is not keen on pizza. What a lovely surprise to find many pasta options. We had seafood linguine...very good and asparagus mushroom and prosciutto rigatoni..very nice. Decent wine selection..also Sundays is no corkage!. Lovely ambience and efficient service. Will definitely make this a regular stop.

Dried up salmon. I felt like it was grilled from frozen. Cardboard would taste better. Veal marsala in gravy. Worst meal ever. Less than a one rating. Avoid this place. They should close down. The server was very nice. Not her fault the cook is lousy.

My wife and I visited Paulo's to celebrate her, finally, getting her landed immigrant status. We had the chicken parm, and the shrimp appetizer, which is all my wife wanted. Both were served fresh and hot. Good portions with very fresh vegetables on the side. Service was excellent and the outdoor, yet enclosed, patio is awesome. If you want a patio seat, book ahead. If fills up quickly, even on weeknights. Very pleasant meal. Only our second time there, last time was lunch, but we will be back!

We were travelling through and had to stop for lunch on a Monday when everything is closed downtown Belleville so Paulo's was a real find. It has a charming courtyard with stone walls and a fountain no less.
We started with a tomato-bacon soup and Ceasar salad then had the thin crust ham & pineapple wood-fired pizza; and pesto, brie and mango pizza. Everything was delicious including the complimentary bread rolls.
Service was friendly but a bit slow considering it wasn't very busy.

The restaurant itself is very nice. The staff was friendly. The food we felt was a little overpriced for the portion size. The 3 of us all sent our meals back as they were luke warm to cold. We were not impressed. We had the chicken parm.
