My husband and I recently visited the south of England for business and stayed in nearby Hayward's Heath. We visited Paolino at the recommendation of our hotel manager. We were not disappointed. The whole experience was wonderful. The menu is extensive, the food is prepared...More

We were warmly greeted as we entered and shown to a lovely sunny spot at the front of this warm friendly restaurant. The food was amazing and reasonably priced. We plan to return soon.

We went for dinner - service was nice and quick, and we were made to feel very welcome. Lovely food - nice touch on the menu allowing us to order more classic Italian dishes not on the menu. They have gluten free pasta options as...More
