My husband and I love coming to this restaurant. We first visited it for lunch on a Saturday just driving by and were amazed at how good their food is. Then we went there for a dinner - and food and ambiance and service - all were excellent! Tip: get on their email list to get latest promotions and coupons... More

We had the Chef's Special, Trio Medley. Service was prompt, friendly and knowledgeable. Medley included Chilean Sea Bass, Scallops and Beef Tenderloin. All were severed with their own special sauce and was outstanding. An extensive wine list was available, the waite staff was very knowledgeable with parings. This is a very good Italian Restaurant, great food severed with a flair.... More

My wife and I made it back here after too long. I had forgotten how good the food and service was at Paulo and Bill. And last night was no exception. The pasta is our favorite - marsala and primavera are so good.

We both had the beef special which was a tenderloin with lobster tail, mushroom risotto and green beans. The food was so delicious! I wouldn't want anything different. We splurged on an excellent bottle of Pinot Noir! My mother has been there several times and everything has been wonderful.

This is one of the most reliably-good restaurants in Johnson County. The chef's choice menu when they have it is a must-try - it's always creative and tasty!

This is a nice Italian restaurant; the food and service were both good. We had reservations for a busy Saturday night; we arrived 30 minutes early and were seated within 10 minutes, which we appreciated. I especially liked the cream sauce, which was light and didn't get thick and sticky as is sometimes the case. The phyllo-wrapped brownie dessert was... More

This restaurant may be slightly off the beaten path for the great majority of restaurants in the KC area, and if you live a distance away, it is definitely worth the drive to get there on western loop of I-435. It is really a very worthwhile restaurant with excellent prepared, tasty food. For the many years I have eaten there,... More

Wine, food, music, clean and wonderfully consistent...from a quick drink and appetizer to full dinner...if you are close you will not be disappointed. Calamari is better than most and decent for Kansas City!

Thank Bob A
