This restaurant is in the heart of Belleville's downtown. It's the traditional Italian food, yet very delicious. My favourite was the linguini Roberto's (linguini pasta with dried out tomato and pine nuts), mouth watering. The steak special was extremely good as well. Con's/ suggestions: - Being an Italian restaurant, you would expect fresh cut parmigiano cheese. - Steak knives when... More

Several of our high-school friends got together and booked this lovely patio restaurant for our lunch. What a beautifully decorated patio! We were pleasantly greeted, and everything was arranged for us. Our servers were excellent and professional. We ordered paninis, wood-fired pizzas,and specialty pastas - all were delicious! We loved the Latin music, and the relaxed atmosphere. These people went... More

While in town I made a visit to Paulo's Italian Trattoria restaurant in downtown Bellville, ON. Paulo's is a medium sized restaurant with a rustic, Italian country decor. The servers were very friendly and attentive and the... More

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

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
