Love this place. Wednesday night is half price Washington Wines. Service is also very good and the meals are very reasonable priced. Enjoy!

We go to Paolo's every time we think of Italian food. It is not your typical spaghetti and lasagna kind of place. It is small and intimate; the colors and decor make you feel like you are in an Italian cafe. Chef Paul learned to cook in Italy, and he has developed a unique menu with a variety of meat,... More

We stumbled upon Paolo's after a long day and were greeted by a gracious staff, delicious food, and cozy ambiance. Our waitress was attentive and informative. I ordered the Tortellini Gorgonzola and it was delicious. The portions are filling but you don't feel uncomfortably stuffed at the end of your meal. There also is delicious array of desserts served as... More

We took my dad and step-mom here for an early Father's Day dinner. The service was impeccable as always, and the salads were excellent. We love their Gorgonzola dressing. Their chilled Raspberry soup was on the menu. It is excellent, not sweet but rich. But we opted for the salad this time. We all had the Copper River salmon. It... More

We once again enjoyed our dinner at Paolo's. This is not fast food. Every meal is made to order. I appreciate that service. If a dish comes with something in it that I don't like, I just tell them to leave it out and they do without a problem. The service was great tonight. I will enjoy the rest of... More

we eat here at least 5 times per year. our family dines out often and we like to try various cuisine, but it is hard to always find good restaurants, close to home. Paolo's keeps us from the drive to Seattle, Tukwila, Tacoma, or Bellevue and is pretty good food. we love the gorgonzola dressing on the green salad and... More

First off the waiter didn't ask what brings us in today...6th of May. The appetizer was skimpy, it was brucshetta and didn't have all the pieces with tomato. The calamari is pan seared which is not as good as deep fried. My shrimp and pasta had a terrible tangy lemony based sauce. I specifically asked for garlic butter sauce. The... More

Love Paolo's, have been going there for years. Always excellent taste. They sometimes have live music on fridays and saturdays, can be busy but haven't ever waited more than 20min. They occasionally have 3 course dinner with beer or wine pairings that are super fun, sign up on the website to get emails. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Order... More
