“A gem hidden away in suburban Drummoyne”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

You wouldn't know from the glass walled extension that juts into the Sutton Place shopping plaza at Drummoyne, but Paolo's Italian restaurant serves delicious meals in addition to the comprehensive pizza selection for which it is more usually known.

We had grilled veal with garlic oil, fettucini carbonara, chicken schnitzel and an hawaiian pizza. My veal was excellent, my wife's pasta was very nice (and a huge serving too) but could have done with a little more flavour she thought, my son's chicken schnitzel was very tender and very lightly crumbed - absolutely perfect, and my daughter's pizza exactly to her liking. Although most of the desserts are the standard (very nice) Mr Pisa gelato range (my spumoni was wonderful) they also have a home made tirimisu that you have to ask for. As a tirimisu connoisseur my wife thought it was one of the best she's tasted, so that's a great recommendation!

The service can be a bit slow when they're busy but as suburban restaurants go, Paolo's is reliable and the food is high quallity.

“Own and operated by same family for 30 years. Authentic home style Italian cooking”
Reviewed March 12, 2012

If you want a place that has home style Italian meals made on the premises then this is it. Great value and service. Try the home cooked cannaloni enough for 2 people.

“Small and Quaint - Authentic & BYO”
Reviewed January 21, 2009

I love Paolo's to catch up with a couple of friends, bring my own bottle of wine and eat some authentic italian pasta!! They are a bit slow and are a family business but Ive always been impressed by the food.

Its not five star but rather somewhere you can eat out if you dont feel like getting take away and just want to get out of the house.

The prices are quite reasonable and they are friendly people. Would I recommend it? Absolutely!!
