My husband and I met another couple here for dinner. None of us had ever been before but had heard good things. We had a delicious clam appetizer along with the bread that's served with garlic seasoned marinated oil and balsamic. I had spaghetti and meatballs. The entree was ok, very simple, I'm sure most would like it more than... More

Paolo's never disappoints. A wide range of menu items - all simply yet wonderfully prepared by Paul and his crew. Recent menu updates have provided for different portion sizes for pasta mains, a welcome addition. Paolo's is a "home away from home" for us and the staff make us feel like family. Tip: make a booking, as the restaurant is... More

I had the chicken parmesan and it was absolutely the best I have ever had. The restaurant has a nice warm atmosphere filled with delicious aromas.

I love veal marsala - or chicken for that matter -_and this is one of the best out there. It's served with country fried potatoes always cooked to perfection as are the vegetables. Too many restaurants seem to add vegetables because it's expected I guess but don't seem to think any dinner is really going to bother eating them! I'm... More

This has always been our go to place for celebrations. We are never disappointed in the excellent selection of Italian dishes. The service is always superb and the desserts never disappoint. Best to get reservations if going in the evening.

Variety of excellent dishes, including pizza. Prices are reasonable. Tends to be noisy after 6, especially on weekends. Good service.

I adore this place, tucked in the strip mall wasteland of Kent's East Hill, it is a gem in the midst of urban sprawl. Even my 10 year old son likes to eat here. Tonight we went to dinner at Paulos; my husband made reservations (recommended on a Friday or Saturday). We were instantly seated. The host who sat us... More

One of our favorites. The Polo Gorgonzola (or any gorgonzola dish) is especially good. Prices are reasonable and the menu variety is good. Tends to bet pretty noisy at busy times.
