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!
