Lovely location in downtown Belleville. Open front onto the street, The staff were very friendly and helpful. I had the veal scalopini which I had for the first time. I would not order that dish again (my personal choice). The Chicken parmigiana looked very good. My wife had a small cheese pizza which was very good. Great atmosphere !

Let me jump right into the pros and cons... Pros: An Amazing outside/inside patio room... with a nice water fountain and a typical European feel... Hmmm... well.. I said pros, but that is the only positive thing we agreed on... Cons: The menus are dated and dirty, the salt and pepper shakers are from the dollar store, as are the... More

After an unexpected, very long drive out of Toronto that was already 3 hours before getting to Kingston, we took a detour to Belleville to find a restaurant! We found Paulos in the historic center and loved it! Great ambience and music in this over 100 year old building. We got there at 9:15 pm on a Thurs and they... More

Restaurant face looked high end, ambience top notch. Down hill from there. Server was not very social, buns came out cold, calamari was rubbery and tasted like it came from the local grocery store with freezer burn. We figure the pizza should fix everything. They have a wood fired oven. Worst pizza I've had from a wood fired oven. Under... More

The food here is really good and the atmosphere is interesting - neat setting and lots to look at. Service is usually pretty good and usually friendly and professional.

We were in Belleville for the Belleville Downtown Doc Fest in early March, held in the marvellous restored grand old Empire Theater. After the film ("After the Last River"), we wandered around downtown Belleville, pretty much deserted on a cool Sunday afternoon, looking for a place for an early diner before heading home by train. We were fortunate to find... More

Went to Paolo's for dinner with friends as I had eaten there several years ago and loved it, but this time it was a major let down. We had 2 wood fired pizzas that were lacking in any memorable flavour, veal scalopini that was bland and mundane and a special for the day, slow roasted beef that was not at... More

Went to Paulo's for a family birthday lunch. It was a Sunday brunch for 5 adults. Service and food quality was extremely good. Paulo's is in a great location in downtown Belleville. Outside appearance looks like a European building. Inside has been renovated and is well taken care of and not showing signs of wear. The pizzas are wood fired.... More

Had a fantastic fantastic meal and the food was awesome. Will defiantly come back. The chicken. Parmesan was the best I've ever had. The Caesar salad as a side was a great light option. The tiramisu was excellent.
