Description: An authentic Italian restaurant on a beautiful location on banks of West Lake. The restaurant has been established since 2010. It is extremely popular with local residents, business people and families. Ideal place for tasting authentic Italian fare such as pizzas, pastas, risotto, and lot more. We believe in traditions. All food is cooked in traditional Italian style. Even the oven we use for baking pizzas, is traditional Italian oven, fired by wood, to give it the unique natural taste that is difficult to find in other modern pizzeria. Our customers, many of whom have been with us since the start, have been our best critics, and have always told us about what they really think about the changes we make. This is because they feel it is their place as well as ours.

“Tasty Italiano”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

As i have driven past this Restaurant many times i finally decided to give it a try and boy was it good.

I and my Girlfriend arrived there parked our scooter and went inside. As we entered the waitress was very happy to see us and had a huge smile on her face. We asked for a table upstairs next to the windows and they obliged by giving us a choice of 4 possible Tables. After we settled in to our table we where brought the menu's( which they also have in Japanese should you need it)

There where so many options and good explanations that we here able to make our choice swiftly. Between me and my girlfriend we shared a Quattro Formagi pizza and a plate of chips.

The food came and was very sumptuous the pizza was a home made base in a wood fired oven and man o man was it good not to mention the chips they where freshly cut and not just warmed up from the freezer type chips which i enjoyed tremendously.

They have a huge selection of various wines from Italy, France and Argentina.

Also as we had some fresh fruit with us we asked them to put it in the fridge for us to keep it cold and they where more than happy to do this.

All in all i really can recommend this place as they have fantastic food and friendly service. I will definitely be going back and hopefully sooner than later.

“Best Italian cuisine offer in Hanoi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

I dont really have much to elaborate, all I can say is Da Paolo is truly the best place in Hanoi for a true, authentic Italian experience.
- Location: West Lake - away from the packed n noisy part of Hanoi, like a hideaway, a little hard to find but - oh well, not that hard after all
- Menu: possibly anything u can think of when it comes to Italian food (not sure if I saw gelato though)
- Food quality: superb!!! Dont forget to order beef carpaccio, people!
- Service quality: okay, 8/10, but the friendly owner/ host makes up for it, so it's 10/10
