First Time A Good Time

A fairly quiet, relaxed place, serving wood fired pizzas and a selection of Italian style dishes, using fresh ingredients. Pizzas are a little out of the ordinary, some almost quirky. Portion sizes are ok, service very good, and prices a decent value. four different entree dishes came to our table... read more

Had a fantastic fantastic meal and the food was awesome. Will defiantly come back. The chicken. Parmesan was the best I've ever had. The Caesar salad as a side was a great light option. The tiramisu was excellent.

Paul Dinkel expanded his Toronto Yorkville operations to Belleville many years ago. His sense of serving the customer has not changed. If you visit be sure to ask for Paul and ask his to tell you the story of the Paintings of him and his family - far from being an exhibition of ego - rather it is a great... More

The entire downtown area of Belleville at this time of the year (particularly after dark) is like a dead city. Only a few places opened for dinner (except for the chains). Came to this restaurant at about 6;30PM on Monday. Saw only 4 customers. 6 persons came in after us. Ordered pasta, pizza, lamb chop. One of us tried to... More

Have eaten here a few times but not often. None of the appetizers or mains in our party of 3 were special. One - goat cheese in phyllo appetizer came cold and in a tortilla- like casing. Sent it back and it returned only slightly warmer. Won't be returning, as the price warrants superior food.

Great wood fired pizza oven. Creative pizza options. My favourite is the chef's curry special. Kids love it. Really fun, open concept dining area. If you don't like the Gypsy Kings - avoid this restaurant.

We arrived at Paulo's because of the ambience and the location, our son was curious about it - plus many of the chain restaurants near the highway in Belleville are always packed to the rafters. We were seated quickly (it was a Monday night, no reservation) but noted there were long waits between being asked for drinks, taking the orders,... More

Love the ambiance, the food, the wine presentation. Very large menu selections, good sized serving portions, special occasion dining. Fine dining at it's best. Food prepared & presented beautifully. Waiters polite & helpful. Very enjoyable evening out.
