Da Paolo Restaurant
The restaurant accomodated our group of nine in the basement comfortably and without any difficulties at all. The service was also efficient and attentive, just right for a big group like ours. There was something for everyone on the menu and the mains were very tasty and voluminous! Would definitely go again when I’m craving a plate of fine pasta.
Excellent food, service
I was there last night meeting a friend from HK.
We ordered Italian bread with olive oil to start and shared two mains one prawn homemade linguine and duck breast.
I am a little disappointed that the duck breast tasted better than homemade linguine given it’s a highly rated Italian restaurant. Linguine was quite dry (sauce was very tasty which it came with more of it), king prawns were over cooked.
Tiramisu was too dry, not alcoholic enough - quite a common miscalculation when making this I guess.....
Service was lovely though, thank you team.
I’m a regular and love this place - told all my friends and family. The best thing about the place are the portions and quality still remains the same!! Love it
As always, best place in town!
1st time dinner, really impressed. Definitely come back!
Chose Da Paolo restaurant for our anniversary and it was a great decision. Loved the atmosphere and the food, made us feel relaxed and cosy and it was perfect for a romantic dinner with some very good food. Definitely will return and would 100% recommend.
Generous portion size. Great service. Cozy atmosphere. Recommended.
Worst Italian food I’ve ever had. Risotto was awful and tiramisu... just tried and leave it... never back
Excellent place. In every aspect. I cannot recommend enough. Will absolutly return
Warm friendly, cosy restaurant. Lovely food. Will definitely be back.
Absolutely loved this intimate little restaurant. It is cozy and the staff were friendly and attentive. We enjoyed our dishes and everything was served in a timely manner, no rushing. If I lived in London this gem would definitely be a regular stop!
A favourite restaurant of mine. Very reliable - good service and good food in a central London location that is off the main track. Always have a decent selection of specials to supplement a tried and tested menu.
Food and service was great. The sitting position is tight but managable. Cosy place and accessable.
Great food and great service! A lovely food experience.
A great spot. Unpretentious exactly as Italian food should be, all the classics and good specials. Really good. Would recommend entirely.
Very helpful staff, food was of very good quality and well cooked, prices reasonable for what is being offered. Very cosy italian cuisine restaurant, one I would put on the top of my recommendations to anyone that wanted to have italian food.
Brought my new girlfriend here for our first date night after seeing so many positive reviews, and am very glad I did. The food we had from the set menu was absolutely delicious and served promptly by the courteous and professional staff, and we were not at all rushed to finish. It was a very relaxed and cosy place to have a lovely meal and pleasant conversation for a few hours. I definitely recommend it.
my favourite Italian in London - always great food and service
as always i leave this place fully satisfied. excellent traditional italian menu always supported well by daily specials
Love the food here, authentic Italian! Highly recommended!
For its price point, very hard to fault. I enjoyed swordfish with simple sauteed vegetables, followed by a gargantuan tiramisu. The staff were friendly and attentive
Get the duck main it’s ridiculous!!
A great and unpretentious Italian. Good menu with all the classics and some great specials. Cosy, good and personal service and exactly what you want from a local Italian. Really enjoyed it.
Tables almost touching so no privacy. Food, large portions but quality fair. Prices ok for food and wine in that neighborhood. We were there 90 minutes when manager, interrupted our conversation to basically tell is to order dessert or pay bill and leave. We were unpleasantly surprised as there were empty tables and nobody waiting for a table.
The little cosy resturant . Tasty food and fantastic service. Best to make reservations.
Lovely cosey spot for wholesome Italian food. Great food reasonable prices.
Really wonderful. Like going to Italy. Very authentic. Food was so fresh and delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed it!!!
Italiano buonissimo, posto piccolo, intimo ma molto caloroso, cibo ottimo, saporito e cucinato bene, ma soprattutto porzioni enormi.
Assolutamente consigliato, ci tornerò sicuramente.
Provatelo ne vale la pena.
Absolutely charming neighborhood Italian gem. Wonderful service. Delicious, fresh ingredients. We started with Tagliatelle with freshly shaved truffles. Amazing. Perfect, simply done swordfish, lovely salad and an exquisite Vermentino. We look forward to another visit when we return to London. Bravo Da Paolo!
AWESOME - Da Paolo is simply the best place for home cooked authetic Italian food in London, simple as that. The portions are big and flavours bold - the wine is exquisite with perfect and dignified service. They have truly special Specials too!
Excellent menu, lovely food, great service and lovely atmosphere. Will definitely return.
Absolutely loved our meal. Went on a date and enjoyed every minute of it. The service was excellent as the waiters always had an eye on you. Food was incredible, and not only that but the portions were huge. We both left feeling absolutely stuffed with the freshest food. Really was cheap considering that for a date for two, eating 3 courses and a bottle of wine for no more than £90. They even provided free espressos after we had paid the bill. Loved every minute.
We discovered this restaurant on our first visit to London and have come here on every return trip — 6 times over the years. It is a small, cozy, unpretentious, very authentic Italian restaurant with a good combination of traditional and innovative dishes. I couldn’t begin to tell you everything that was in the sauce on the fabulous mushroom and truffle raviolis but it was subtle and just out of this world. A steady, reliable, exceptionally high quality restarante/trattoria.
Excellent, interesting and well presented dishes. Friendly and attentive staff.
Great meal in friendly local restaurant- a real find and we’ll be going back
Have been coming here for years & unfortunately we were greeted by a man we have never seen before who was very abrupt queried the booking until I showed him confirmation on phone & was quite rude to two of our party.
Very nice people but the food lacked real love care and attention....out of all the choice of restaurants and availability of good produce it seems hard for me to understand why the restaurants don't up their game.....presentation is everything and the use of oil to enhance the look of the plates from the kitchens is such an antiquated idea.
Very nice, small, neighborhood restaurant. Staff was friendly, and food was good, with surprisingly large portions. Desserts were very nice as well.
Great traditional Italian.
