We were passing through Belleville and a friend recommended Paulo's; we couldn't have done better. The decor is very much the traditional stereotype, stone walls, wood beams, checked table cloths with the pizza oven glowing at the back - all truly welcoming and warm on a cold night. The place was packed and we were in rather a hurry, but... More

Incredible fresh ingredients, very creative yet classic menu...something for everyone. Service is always fantastic. Today I ordered fresh sautéed in butter, brandy, ginger, shrimp and my favourite salad of all time - Paulo's cajun scallops! Succulent, fresh and perfectly seasoned. The dressing on the bed of baby greens, arugula was mind-blowingly delicious. Lemon thyme vinaigrette with shallots. Sides of sliced... More

Nice upscale street front and charming interior decor. A typical Italian restaurant that tries but just can't quite get it together. I really wanted this to be a good experience but alas it was an inconsistent experience. The Caesar salad was OK, the seafood cannelloni was fantastic, the service was OK. The disappointment was no Tiramisu for dessert, sold out... More

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. 🙁
