We walked the extra mile from our accommodation to Paolo's and were pretty disappointed with our pizza - we had asked for garlic & basil to be added and also could it be cooked up a bit more.....this didn't happen! Unfortunately, we won't be returning to Paolo's but have had a fantastic wood fired pizza from the Beach House Hotel... More

Firstly, friendly service. Prompt, attentive and happy. Pizza, not as marketed. Neapolitan pizza is light on toppings very thin base and a crust that is light and airy. Our bases were not and the toppings too heavy. Positives, sauce ok, mozzarella very good. A quick look at AVPN (associazione verace pizza Napoletana) will give you some clues of the benchmark...

Paolo's has a lovely atmosphere and the food is very good. Cost is a bit on the up side but you are not eating at a pub. Try the scallop pizza it is fantastic. The pasta is very good too. Excellent service. Great hidden treasure of Hervey Bay. Seek it out you won't be disappointed.

Great tasting traditional pizzas with very friendly staff. We had to wait for a table as it was very popular.

We made a stop for the night in Hervey Bay with my partner. Searching for a takeaway, we found this pizzeria very busy (always a good sign!). We ordered a pesto pollo and a campagnola pizza. Just like in Italy, the base was thin and crusty, perfectly cooked, with a very generous topping! For a big pizza envy, that's the... More

We were advised of the price over the phone, $107 however the prices we found on the internet came to $90. We went to pick up our order and questioned the price and were told the prices had changed.

Hervey bay is a quite sleepy town so arriving at this restaurant to see it bustling was a good sign. The service was outstanding with friendly staff and very quick. The pizzas were absolutely delicious and good value for money. My wife had a cocktail which was very well made. As the night goes on staff turned the lights down... More
