Amazing flavor!

Paolos is a wonderful dining experience. Some of the entrees are a bit pricey, but the taste and flavor make it all worth it! Your overall experience is a delight, five stars! I Would recommend to anyone in the Puget Sound, it is worth traveling to this destination for the experience.

They have the most delicious Italian food ever. You must try their home made cheese plate. The best cheeses ever. Sit at the counter so you can see them cook your meal. I wish I could go there every day but it is too pricey. I can only go on special occasions only.

Found this restaurant because of its Trip Advisor rank, cuisine type, and price. Simply outstanding is the best way to sum it up. It's a small place, but it seems like it's the type of place the locals go. Their Open Table appeared to be down, so we went and were seated immediately. They have a four course dinner special...

I guess its a sign of the times, everything was average, food, wine and service. Best to have reservations during busy times. A bit overpriced but still the best place to eat in Kent.

Paolo's summer menu is here. Tonight I had one of my favorite summer additions to the Paolo's summer menu, Chilled Raspberry Soup. It is very good and refreshing. The new menu that has lighter portions is also a hit with me.

My wife and I frequently visit here. The food is astounding and the service is great! It gets busy so reservations are smart thinking. I strongly reccommend stoping here.

I'm not a snob when it comes to Italian cuisine. I've enjoyed some pretty excellent Italian lunches and dinners in Italy, Germany and the USA over the past 50-plus years. When friends suggested we gather at Paolo's recently, they all raved about its amazing food, so I was prepared to expect something special. I was disappointed. I can understand why... More

We have been dining at Paolo's for years. We have also attended MANY of Paul's cooking classes. He doesn't keep any tricks to himself. Shares them all. Watch fb for the next class and sign up! They always fill up! You watch him prepare the dish then every single person gets to make their own. Very fun and delicious! You... More

We love to sit at the counter to eat--there are plenty of tables, but at the counter you can watch the cooking action. Friendly staff, delicious food. Order the lemon cheesecake for dessert!
