Restaurant was recommended to us by a friend from Bellville.. It turned out to be a terrible experience.. After water was poured a 15minute wait for service. My wife and I ordered lamb chops one medium and one medium rare. When the meal came both plates were medium rare and cold to the touch. We complained and the plates were... More

Each of us had their pizzas with soup/salad, as their lunch special, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The soup was clearly homemade and the pizza crust was tasty. A nice little Italian restaurant in Belleville. Only downside was the under-chilled bottle of white wine we ordered and the pizza did take a while to get to the table. We weren't in... More

Ate with a group of 15 for a business related dinner. Everyone was served and most had finished their meal before the waiter advised me that the pizza dough was not "working" properly in the hot weather (there was a lack of air conditioning) and could they get me something else. I declined as most of the group was wrapping... More

Just leaving the restaurant. Ordered a curry chicken pizza. Asked if I could have it with no onion or peppers. Server said no problem. Rest of the table was served 10 mins before me. When the pizza arrived it had onions and peppers. We were told we wouldn't be charged for it...and we were. Lazy and unacceptable.

Friendly service, rustic atmosphere, tasty thin crust pizza and I like the espresso very much. My kids love the dessert selection.

Have gone to Paulo's for eggs Benny many times.... a special on weekends. Was informed that they had no eggs. The waiter tried to push the special and when I chose something else he grimaced.... I was disappointed!!!

Favourite place for family dinners out. Great atmosphere, service and value. Pay just a little more than the chains and get a far better meal.

Really enjoyed my linguine with tomato sauce and meatballs. Wine list is ok. Too many cream sauce on the menu, hardly any tomato meat sauce choices. Food allergies, cant have cream. So very limited choices for me. But services was great and nice ambiance. Overall, it was a pleasant experience.

I was at Paulo's and ordered a gluten free Aloha pizza. The crust was $4 more, which I expected, but when I received it, it was half the size of the plate, half the size of my dinner date's pizza! It was so small that we were both laughing the entire meal. Like that wasn't bad enough, the edges were... More
