Attentive service, substantial menu. Meals were good quality, plentiful and good value. Wines were reasonably priced, and they brought us a complimentary Limoncello with the bill!

Visited here with friends and family about 3 weeks ago, and although the service was mainly good, we all decided that we should have stuck to the the dishes the Italians are known best for.
We ordered off the non pizza and pasta sections and felt the food was a little bland.
Friends who have visited and the pizzas and complimented them, so we would return for that.
On a small point to the restaurant, I don't think it is difficult for the service staff to remember which order so for which person on a table of 4, but as I said this is a minor point.
The atmosphere in the restaurant is vibrant, and it feels very welcoming. Iron out the little bits and this will be worth a visit every time.

I live in the same village and my family and I have visited many times. The consistency of the welcome and the atmosphere remains constant, whether the restaurant is totally full or whether they have spare capacity. We are so fortunate to have such a fab restaurant so close to us. The family run the restaurant as authentically as possible without actually being in Italy and it's lovely to see the kids of the owners sitting in the restaurant on quiet nights getting on with their homework. A really authentic offering with extremely high quality food and service.

P.S. next time you fancy a quick pizza at home.....don't even think of going to the high street offerings.....Paulino's will happily make your pizza to go.

Arrived without booking at 9 on Saturday night and were seated right away in the still busy restaurant. Had the fritturo mista with salad and garlic mayo and the monkfish with prawns in a cream and fennel seed sauce. Both excellent. Tiramisu also good plus the nice touch of a shot of Grappa at the end. Bottle of Chianti Classico also good.

Service very quick, friendly and efficient. We ordered a side order of roast potatoes but were advised that they already came with the food so no need to pay extra!
