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!

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
