Another great visit to Casa Paolo and we were not disappointed. The owners are fantastic - always around offering suggestions and describing dishes - which are so generous and authentic Italian. Can't fault this place. Lovely to have it in the doorstep.

Me and my partner absolutely love this place and always go there for a special occasion. The food is always very flavoursome and you can tell a lot of effort had been out in to it! Nice quaint place and staff are very friendly and happy to change anything for your liking.

Been here twice in December with 2 different groups of friends . On both occasions the service has been impeccable . The owner is so friendly you feel like he is going to the kitchen to personally cook your dinner. The food was delicious and I love the fact that a lot of the meat and produce is local. We... More

One of the places where you feel welcome and served from the second you walk through the door! We all have our favourite dishes but also like to sample the extensive 'specials' menu ... I am not a vegetarian but the vegetarian lasagne I picked one evening from this menu was far better than any other I've ever tasted. The... More

When we arrived for our Saturday evening reservation, the restaurant was buzzing so you definitely need to book in advance. Words of warning: portions are generous and service isn't included! The menu is one of the most extensive we've seen but the owner visits each table to talk through starters and mains. We were warned that the soup of the... More

We were welcomed and had a seat in the reception area - which I understand is the norm. We were offered drinks and had a chance to review the menu and discuss the specials. Our order was taken and we were then escorted to our table. The table is basically yours for the evening so there is no rush to... More

Casa Paolo is one of my favourite places to go for special meals. It's never a hurried experience and the owners are friendly and take the time to describe the specials in mouth watering detail. My mouth has even watered at the descriptions of some dishes that I don't even like! The menu is good and varied. As they source... More

Reading through the reviews prior to our visit, expectations were high, service and the staff were polite and helpful. The food was average, deserts were very dissapointing, there are far better resturants in Swindon. Not a place for a revisit for my friends and I.

We visited here with friends for Saturday lunch on the 5th November. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming. We relaxed in the comfy seating area while we chose our food and had some drinks. The choice on the menu was impressive and the details with which the specials were delivered; you could tell everything was home made. All of... More
