Very busy little pizza place. The atmosphere was a bit too frantic for what we'd hoped would be a relaxed evening. We felt rushed as they were struggling to find tables for incoming diners. Some smaller tables and better configuration would alleviate the issue (we were sat on a table for 6 but there was only 2 of us). Pizza... More

A friend had highly recommended Paolo's Pizza Bar on the Esplanade in Torquay, our accommodation conveniently was a short walk. We had a short wait till a table was available, this wasn't a problem as it gave us a chance to view the menu and everything sounded delicious... The service was tentative and fantastic, the food even better. I'm not... More

Pizza and pasta of a consistently high quality and you can see they've made an effort to create different pizzas. Owners and staff are super friendly and you never wait long for a table.

The things I liked about this place were the nice interior of the restaurant and the little car outside which gave a good impression of authenticity. I liked how the pizza oven and the chef were visible from our table. But unfortunately for me the food wasn't at the same level. I wanted it to be, but I was disappointed.... More

Over serviced, looking for tips from the backpackers working there,food left a lot to be desired, best thing about the place they let you have your dog outside at night, and the vintage Citroen, Dolly parked outside, next time we will admire the Citroen, and go else where for decent value the food is just a rip off...

Ordered the Frutti di mare. with Paolo’s sauce, fresh local seafood of medium king prawns, HB scallops, calamari, parsley & garlic for $21.50. What a mistake the pizza is not very big and they left off the seafood. I asked is this all... More

A great unpretentious pizza place really busy with a great atmosphere. Service was very good, our two girls tested there patience with fussy orders. Caters for non dairy eaters vegetarians etc. Lots of choice, my Hawain had lots of topping on so much that I could not finish it. A good size pizza without out being ridiculously big. My daughter...

Have just finished the most interesting pizza I have ever had, which from other reviews I think is new to the menu. B & W (Black and White) which was highly recommended did not disappoint. The black refers to the vegetable charcoal base, which is topped by the white, being Hervey Bay scallops as well as speck, pancetta, rocket, onion... More

We love a good Pizza but not from... More
