Great food in a town setting

My collegue and I were in Belleville for a meeting and asked where was a great place to have lunch. All of the staff (all 5) told us Paulo's was the place. We met our lunch meeting date and sat for a great lunch that was reasonably priced and sparked great conversations. To wrap it up, the owner... read more

The worst service I have ever experienced. I came here about 6 months ago, and will not be returning. The waiter obviously had something bothering him when he came to the table, he was very short with us and when my wife inquired about gluten free pasta he was rude, and not helpful in the least. Food is also very... More

I came here recently with a friend and I really enjoyed this restaurant. First of all, I loved the décor and colours of the place. Very warm and cosy, and it lends to the feeling of being somewhere unique and special. We ordered the wood-oven cooked pizzas. My friend had the Carnivore and I had the Naomi. Both were sensational!... More

As co-executors, my wife and I travelled this spring to Belleville four different times for two to four days each. We found Paulo's to be the best of nine different restaurants that we tried for dinner in the town. The top item we had was a Cajun scallop salad and it was super each time. Their pizza was excellent, service... More

Haven't been here in a few years but nothing has changed ie: poor food & service. Waiter seemed like a reject from Yuk - Yuks, he tried to amuse us. Wife's pasta had more vegetables than noodles, Hard to explain why gorgonzola cheese sauce can have no flavour. Maybe it was the chef's day off, but somebody should know how... More

We called ahead for a reservation of 20 people. We were given a beautiful private room and even when extra guests arrived it was easily accommodated. We had a delicious lunch. I had the special, a baked manicotti with caesar salad, both were very good.

When visiting downtown Belleville on business, Paulo's Trattoria is a reliable lunch destination. Located in a restored century-old building, I enjoy an unpretentious meal of delicious pizza with salad, and a glass of red wine. Atmosphere is relaxed, and prices are reasonable, but not cheap.

This is where we went for wedding reception. Very small group---maybe 20 or so. It was just one long table in a room off of main eating area. The were no doors to close off this area so it was very loud from other areas. I felt it was a bit cramped--couldn't get up to visit very easily. The food,... More

The food was fair, not exceptional by any means. The service was very slow. It is always seems to be busy. The prices are on the high side. I only come here 1 or 2 times a year, each time hoping for improvement. I have been here with friends and with business associates.

Menu is Italian themed, with items changed up on a regular basis. Casual dining experience, good for lunches. Parking is on street and can be a challenge
