Lovely restaurant, seating is varied so as not to be elbowing each other, the lunch and dinner menues are average. Fun place to go with friends

Pizzas are very good many to choose from, but all taste good. Pastas also very good. Salad with raspberry vinaigrette is wonderful, but last visit when we asked for extra salad dressing we were to there would be a charge. Took it anyway but received less than an ounce for 1$ each.

We had a lovely evening at Paulos. We are visiting from Australia and had spent the day in the Prince Edward County wine region. Dined at Paulos on our return to Belleville and we were not disappointed. The potato and bacon soup was delicious. The pasta dishes all very tasty and beautifully cooked and the lamb cutlets were exceptional. Our... More

The restaurant had a nice atmosphere, but very slow service. Basket of buns took about 30 minutes after ordering to arrive on a night when the restaurant was half full. I ordered one of the day's specials - chicken tetrazzini. It arrived about 40 minutes after ordering and was actually a boneless, skinless chicken breast (albeit with a nice sauce... More

When we first started going there over 8 yrs. ago, we enjoyed their food but sadly, as time ent on, we found their menu became boring, it never changes and we have had some less than perfect meals with errors several times when ordered take out. It will be awhile before we go back, if ever. 🙁

The atmosphere is charming from when you spot it outside to when you're dining, and beyond. The music fits the charm! They have a cute terasse on the curb. Basically, the food was good, but pricy. My mom built her own pizza and added "mixed peppers" to it, what came was maybe seven pieces (not slices, tiny cubes) of peppers.... More

2nd time for my birthday, mid-January. Very quiet, cosy, romantic. I ordered a steak, though their Italian fare is awesome, and the steak was delicious c: We'll be back.

Good salads, wood fired pizza, and atmosphere. Should consider adding vegan option to its diverse menu.

Graciously met at entrance. Chose our own seating location. Steam whistle draught was recommended. Enjoyed our drinks. Sat and chatted in a peaceful area.

I ordered a gourmet pizza and my friend had chicken breast with mango (special of the day) along with 1 bottle of Sandbanks Baco Noir. Total bill about $80. Patrick was our server and he was excellent. He did come to say goodbye before we had finished, as his shift ended. The replacement server (also cook, apparently) was not very... More
