Panolivo was recommended to us for breakfast. When you walk in you realize that there are two restaurants there - one to the right and Panolivo to the left. Our server was very nice but maybe was trying to take care of too many tables. We ended up taking our check up to the desk to pay because she never... More

These folks manage to make eggs extra special. Their Florentine eggs Benedict was glorious. This little spot deserves your attention when you're in Paso. You won't be disappointed.

My wife and I frequently stop in at Panolivo when we are traveling up and down Route 101. It reminds us of a Paris bistro in the middle of California. The food is consistently good. We usually have a light meal such as one of their delicious soups or a freshly made sandwich. The waitresses are always pleasant and the... More

Stopped through here for a quick late lunch because I read on TA they have gluten free options. Ambiance reminds me of a cafe or deli. Waitress was very attentive. Huge gluten free menu, which I appreciated. I ordered the GF French Onion soup - it was okay..not bad, but not wonderful. Wanted to buy one of their GF rolls,... More

We went to eat Mediterranean at Jaffa Grill but the salad looked yummy so we ordered one of those. Ordered the Mediterranean chicken salad in the larger size. It was a decent size salad with a great dressing but definitely not worth $18 with one chicken breast, lettuce and some vegetables.

A friend and I went to get Middle Eastern food and ate in the Café portion of the restaurant. We found the food to be very good (not superior). One of us got a Shwarma plate, the other Kabobs. Both were very tasty and the portions were quite fair. The only "criticism" is that the small café section is quite... More

Maybe I ordered wrong, maybe I was full after a long day of wine tasting, or maybe my beef bourguignon is better? Tender beef, but lack luster taste. Maybe missing the red wine in the cooking process? Were the pearl onions frozen? Bacon was not cooked before it went into the pot so it remained flimsy. Missing the richness I... More

Panolivo is consistently a great place for lunch or dinner. The service is always good, the food is tasty, and the atmosphere is great. They have an area for sit-down dining or a more casual bakery area that also sells pastries. The bread and pastries alone make this establishment worth visiting. The menu includes both French inspired items as well... More

We have had several meals now and have never been disappointed because of the wide variety of well foods, pleasant patient staff, and good wine list for the average customer. Last Friday we arrived for the weekend and needed a place for 8 for dinner. They had room in the back and quickly seated us. Although the ambience is not... More
