“Top Italian Restaurant for miles around”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

Celebrated an important birthday here yesterday with family. We were made most welcome. Table for 8 beautifully situated. Food excellent, service impeccable and friendly and a great atmosphere. The standard here is certainly 5 star + and we are so fortunate to have this wonderful family-run restaurant so nearby. Highly recommend it in all aspects.

to all at di Paolo: mille grazie - un giorno indimenticabile!

“Great!”
Reviewed February 26, 2012

We went for Sunday lunch with our family, including 4 children under 5 and a baby!
They are so welcoming and accommodating, that even with all the children we managed to stay for 2.5 hours for lunch!
The set menu is really great value and the children's meals are high quality!
The food is great and we will definitely be returning!

Our first visit, following several recommendations. Fantastic food, beautifully presented, lovely ambience - a definite must if you haven't been! Pricing felt right for overall experience. An added luxury of a very quiet Sunday night. We'll defintitely be returning!

“Excellent Saturday Lunch 11th Feb 2012 & Xmas Eve Dinner 24 Dec 2011”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

We had lunch on Saturday February 11th the set menu £14.50 for 2 courses. Absolutely excellent value for a truly delicious and uniquely Da Paolo's standard of cusine. We first visited on Christmas Eve and came with our daughter and her husband. We have read nothing but consistenyl great reviews in the press and local magazines so thought we really must come !!

Our meal on Christmas Eve was stunning, the service as stated on all the review is exquisitbe but unobtrusive. Everything is perfect. We loved it, all of our meals were delicious with unique touches that Paolo presents his cusine with. I am getting hungry thinking about it. We had a wonderful Cannanou Sardinian red which we both love and it is very hard to find in the UK. A great selection of wines too.

The lunch we had yesterday was wonderful. A freezing cold day with snow on the ground in places. In we went, we had the restaurant to ourselves. We were very well served again. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the Olives and home made bread. We had Prosecco to start. We both had the 2 course lunch and to be honest the portions were so generous we could not have managed a dessert if we had wanted one . I had the wonderful pate with pear in red wine and salad and Brian had A truly scumptious tagliatelle with a fabulous ragu. I had the Chicken cooked under Terracotta with mash and beetroot crisps deep fried and truly heavenly green beans in batter YUM !! Brian had a wonderful Fegato liver with savoy cabbage and onions on a bed of mash YUMM too !!

We had a long chat at one point with Paolo and he was explaining how it is a truly family kitchen and how they make everything. Including how they make Tomato Oil and Basil Oil how time consuming it is but how truly wonderful when it is done - we cannot wait for this. Paolo we will be back very soon. We cannot wait............ Paolo - Meraviglioso Verona & Venice......
