Description: Locanda Paolo, Italian Fusion Ristorante. We are a family run restaurant that just celebrated its 20th Anniversary. Proud to be a Downtown Restaurant.. we provide service to both locals and turists. The experience of visiting Locanda Paolo is never the same. Owners are on site and greet, serve, recommend and cook for you. We are a small and discreet restaurant. We like keeping it like that!! Let Paolo and Rafa help you personalize your own meal. "Food for the soul made with the Heart" a classy yet traditional Italian dinner.

We dined with Paulo on the last night of our trip and were very happy with our selection. It's a little difficult to spot from the cab, with a modest store front and a sign that was both small and hard to read from afar. The staff was friendly and courteous, with the owner himself assisting in the taking of our order.

We started with the escargot and beef carpacci and were very pleased. So much so, that my companion - who had never eaten escargot, ordered the risotto with escargot for her main course. I went with a special of "river lobster", grilled with two sauces for dipping. We topped it off with a terrific tiramisu - something i generally don't enjoy - but did here.

It was safe, clean, convenient and delicious - we recommend it! (And Peter's a few doors down the block.)

Took ten people the first night and it was great, the owner/chef came out to our table and really was a treat talking to him. Food and service was excellent. It was so good we took 26 the next night and was great experience. True italian restaurant with a seafood twist. Would highly recommend it.

The food was delicious and service was outstanding. The chef came to the table to read the menu, and answer questions.

Classic formal setting including white linen
Very attentive service
Good wine choices by the glass

We were the only ones dining

Paolo salad bit on the oily side needed vinegar to offset

Spinach lasagna unremarkable

Duck cooked very well though current reduction was a bit too sweet
Side fusilli with tomato had too much garlic and salt

Homemade gelato stellar
Cappucino also good

Acceptable but not great dining
