Da Paolo Restaurant
We had a bad experience at Da Paolo. It was rainy, windy and cold outside (9 degree Celsius) but there was no outdoor heating or blanket. The waiter told us that we just need to deal with it and there’s nothing they could accommodate. We ordered lamb chop medium rare but the dish arrived well done. It’s very hard to mess this up yet they couldn’t manage to cook the meat the way we wanted. The service was sub par and the meal was overrated for the quality received. We were also charged £4 for 4 slices of baguette bread. We don’t plan to come back given that there are so many excellent yet affordable Italian restaurants in London.
Fantastic food - delicious and big serving sizes. Plus: super charming service!
Can’t recommend this place enough. Staff were amazing, the food was incredible! I’ve already booked to come back!!! X
Food & service are top notch!
Had an amazing meal at Da Pablo, the food was incredible and the staff were all so friendly and attentive. Would highly recommend!
Warm and friendly service, tasty food and generous portions.
We had the best meal at Da Paolo! I got the garlic shrimp main with saffron rice and my friend got the sea bass ravioli. We enjoyed our dinner very much and the staff were so lovely!
Food was amazing, staff was amazing and friendly!!
I had really great experience, as an Italian I can say they respect all the Italian standard of the traditional food in an excellent way with good price.
The service was wonderful both waitress were super sweet and professional, the service was fast.

Amazing little cozy italian restaurant. Pasta was absolutely amazing and service made you feel for a little while like you are in Italy. Really delicious food!
What was supposed to be a booking for a birthday dinner turned into an absolute shambles.
The restaurant didn’t reserve our booking. We were not the only group that had this problem.
This was an hour and a half left in the evening before ALL restaurants had to close, and there was a complete lack of ownership of the problem by the restaurant, none of the staff wanted to take any responsibility and in actual fact they accused us of not having a booking until I showed it to them. At this point they seemingly washed their hands of us and left us waiting outside in the cold, ignored for over half an hour with no information as to when we could expect a table, or made any effort to address the problem. We were given promises from different staff that they would let us know what was happening before disappearing never to return. There were other confused customers who had made reservations left standing around waiting for their tables.
With an hour left before the end of the evening there was a mad scramble as I had to run door to door in Charlotte street for any restaurants that were still open, before a lovely host at The Ninth made an exception for us and accommodated us with less than an hour before they were due to close. Evening rescued. The group of four gentlemen that also had their booking ignored were not so fortunate.
If it was left to Da Paolo our evening would have been ruined.
Da Paolo is simply awesome - the service is warm and friendly but professional and the food and wine are just always top notch - Carlos continues to astound
Great food and great portions
This was a lovely resturant for a pre theatre meal. We were seated near the door which was a bit crafty when anyone came in,but the waiter and waitress were very attentive in pulling the large curtain across the door way to try and stop the draft and keep us warm. The food and wine was excellent, large portions! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Food was not anything extraordinary for the price. I’ve had better food at restaurants charging half of the price that Da Paolo charged. I will not return.
Outstanding food, service and ambience
Will defo recommend to anyone and will definitely be going again
It was my first visit to Da Paolo and I wasn't disappointed. The reviews are very accurate.
Portions are large, the food is delicious and the service excellent.
If you get a chance to eat here please do, you will not be disappointed either.
Best Italian restaurant in London. Great food and great service.
Best Italian in London, the lobster liguine and vongole were superb.
Also for garlic lovers this is an absolute treat.
Great Italian service, warm, welcoming, and attentive.
My new favourite.
Excellent food and great service. Will definitely go back again!
Although the food, ambiance and service was fine, the portions were very large. Some would consider that a strange observation but quality over quantity always prevails.
We liked it so much that we ate there 3 times during our 6 day visit to London.
It was a great session
It’s a bit of a track to get to but it was so worth it I love this old school Italian restaurant
Da Paolo is amazing. I am Italian, so quite picky when it comes to Italian restaurants, but the ravioli with mushrooms and truffle that I got were just perfect. Everyone at dinner was satisfied and very full after the meal. Quality and quantity, like a good Italian restaurant. I’ll definitely go back.
Lovely food and service. The layout is a bit too pack in the main room for my liking. I think we’d have enjoyed it more in the smaller dinning room. We would still return though as food was proper lush!
Da Paolo is authentic quality-produce, high flavour, big portions, exquisite wine all in one place - simply brilliant
Very authentic old style family Italian restaurant. Extensive menu. We all had different meals and all were delicious. Great service.
Our first time eating at Da Paolo. We had a lovely meal. A very good selection of dishes and wines. Portions were very generous, so much so that, had we known we could have shared starters. The restaurant was quite crammed and busy - a testament to the restaurant. We will be back.
Have been coming here for many years but evening was a disaster as one of our party was told that we weren’t at the restaurant although she showed my name on her phone& I made the booking. She waited upstairs for half an hour then left her business card in case we arrived. We were downstairs & she was told it was a private party which was rubbish as there were several different tables of diners We were not given her card & didn’t know she had been till I spoke to her next day. Absolutely awful. Food ok but clearly will never go back Would like an explanation
Dear JoyDB, we actually don't understand your case. If anyone arrives at the front door indicating that there is group waiting somewhere inside, that person is always allowed to walk the whole restaurant until they find their party group. We never say "No, Your Party is not here, wrong restaurant or stay outside and wait". Please come back to us with more details as your case requires special attention and we will promise you to fully investigate your case. Regards Mr Carlos DC. Owner
Da Paolo is my favourite restaurant for a reason - everything is unbelievably good there, the food, the ambiance, service, wine selection - just an insanely great place
It’s my second time to Da Paolo, food was amazing and with good portion. I especially love their pasta - simple, authentic and delicious! Will definitely come back!
Great as always. Big portions, old school Italian!
I felt like I was back in Italy. The food was delicious, the servers charming and the ambience cozy and authentic.
