The place does not take reservations. Although very popular with locals and very busy, we didn't wait long to be seated outdoor on a beautiful summer evening. This is a very typical italian restaurant, where waiters and owner are Italian, not too much fuss with menu wording, just the pasta, the pizze, etc. Cheerful and efficient service, big portions, very...

Love going to Da Paolo's. There is always such a terrific buzz about the place and the staff is super professional and friendly. I have only ever eaten their pizza so can't really comment on other dishes. Their pizza is very authentic Italian and better than most places I have eaten pizza in Italy. They don't really accept reservations so... More

Da Paolo is one of these few restaurants that consistently delivers what they promise: nice italian family food made with good quality products. a few very good wine surprises. a lovely terrace for summer. the team (with 2 bosses rotating days in the restaurant) is very professional and effective. a good place to go for nice italian food!

Authentic Italian cuisine cooked well in a bustling and popular restaurant. I haven't worked my way through the menu yet, but for sure will keep returning to do so! Often very popular so get there early or be prepared to wait around!

We arrived quite late, around 9 o'clock and the place was packed. We were seated on the end of a longer table and were provided with English menus without asking for them. We ordered pizzas and they were delicious. The staff were very friendly, the atmosphere was fantastic and the food was reasonably priced.

We have had disappointing experiences in other restaurants, so this Italian restaurant was a refreshing change. Very friendly service; no pressure to order quickly and meal was enjoyed at a gentle pace; we were given the choice of having our wine by the glass, or bottle. Pizzas were nice - no problems; about 18-22 Swiss francs per Pizza which is... More
