My wife and I dined at Da Paolo last Saturday evening, after calling to bring our original reservation forward one hour, which was not a problem. The atmosphere was for me, just like Italian restaurants used to be, friendly, courteous, a touch of humour, all framed in a really pleasant environment, which was spotlessly clean.
The food was absolutely gorgeous, but take heed, make sure you bring your appetite, as portions are very generous. We both started with avocado with crab in a marvellous sauce, very different and utterly memorable. My wife followed this with veal, and I the steak, which were both full of flavour, and reasonably priced, as were the wines.
All in all a great experience, but I would suggest make a reservation, as people were being turned away on the night without bookings. So a really friendly family run business, which produces excellent Italian food.
We will be booking again without doubt.
