Nice restaurant

Me and my boyfriend attend on a regular basis and enjoy the food. Staff are friendly and the sphere bar makes nice cocktails. Overall a nice place to eat!

Would like to say it's fab as its in a great spot and really nice interior but although it was busy I accept the food took forever and wasn't that great. It was really expensive to for what we had compared to other places I have been close by.

Great food everytime. Happy hour does get busy due to the great value for money. Never had a bad meal here, mainly pizza, pasta and salads.

I've eaten here several times and find some meals are lovely and some not up to standard at all , don't know if this is because maybe different chefs are working but lately it's not been up to the standard it was when first opened , also one of the male waiters is very surly with an attitude that seems...

I went to Paulo Gianni's in a Saturday lunch with family and my baby and the manager promptly made sure we had a table where we could fit the pram. The restaurant decoration is nice, the service was fairly quick, nice and good price food, happy hour tough, very clean toilets, jazz music in the restaurant, really good. Hope to... More

I had the most delicious cocktail in the Sphere Bar which is part of Paulo Giannis. To make it even better it was "Happy Hour". Would thoroughly recommend this place. I had the toblerone cocktail and it was one of the best cocktails I have ever tasted. Would thoroughly recommend this place. Also a lovely place to sit and enjoy... More

My son chose Paulo Giannis for his graduation lunch. After reading some recent reviews i was a little unsure, but needn't have been. These guys were already rushed off their feet when we arrived but i couldn't fault the service we received. Additionally, the quality of the food didn't suffer, with all of us commenting on how tasty our dishes... More

We booked a table for 3 several months ago. On arrival, the female maitre'd ignored us for several minutes, and then finally deigned to greet us with 'alright, do you have a booking?' Tacky at best. Our table wasn't ready, so we were told to go next door for a drink and charge it to our table. Next door was... More
