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!

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
