Great place!

Very friendly. Great selections. The staff was very helpful picking out whatever you might be interested in. Everyone was extremely knowledgeable about the pairings or oils and spices. If you like spicy go for the Ghost pepper and lemon olive oil.

Good breakfast spot. Service was attentive. Food was good, not great. I had the French Toast, which was good, except for the fact that there was orange zest. The description said nothing about orange flavoring and if it had, I would not have ordered this dish. Still, it's probably a solid place for breakfast.

This French bistro is where to go when you’re not sure what you want or you have a group that demands variety. They do the French classics well, but offer plenty of local favorites, pasta and other selections. They also are much less expensive that some of the more renowned restaurants in town while still serving great food.

Panolivo has wonderful food and good service. It's not a fancy place, but it is comfortable. The prices are reasonable and the corkage was $10. Definitely worth a visit

We stopped in for lunch and every bite... was fresh, delicious and home made. We thought a tad pricey but so good we'll be back. Nice to know another place in Paso serves lunch until 4 PM. And wait until you see the bakery counter - it looks amazing. I don't bake so next time dessert is needed for company,... More

My husband oftentimes will have his favorite lighter evening meal of a Caesar salad w a cup of French onion soup. Well, his choices, although ok, were just ordinary--nothing special about either. On the otherhand, my oftentimes regular choice of a Caprese salad was outstanding. The heirloom tomatoes were plump & ripe, the mozzarella was chewy & flavorful & and... More

Friendly service and good food. Great for breakfast and lunch. Okay for dinner. Don't like the Jaffa Cafe side, but the food on other side is well prepared.

We had lunch here upon arriving in town. We were happy we chose Panolivo afterward. The Mezze Plate was so good that my lunch, while delicious, had a hard time following it. Lovely baked goods as well.
