“Good food, nice atmosphere, friendly service”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

This was our second visit to Casa Paolo and it was a much better experience. The server was friendly, knowlegable and very helpful. 4 pasta dishes were excellent and there was a nice selection of wines - one diner had dessert which was shared and was very good. Portions were not huge but definitely sufficient. We were not rushed in the least and this was overall a most pleasant dining experience. We will be back.

“Good food and nice atmosphere.”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

This family run Italian restaurant offers good Italian food with home made pasta. It is easily accessible on Vincent Massey Drive very close to Brookdale Ave the main commercial street in Cornwall.
It has a cosy romantic atmosphere. The restaurant had nice Xmas decoration. The entrance is accessible. The owner greeted us at the entrance and came and checked on our meal twice. The service was superb considering there was 14 of us and one very capable friendly and efficient waitress looking after us.
Did not have any appetizers but the soups both the Italian vegetable and the Tortellini in chicken broth were OK. The broth was tasty.
The Caesar salad was not exceptional but OK. Could use more croutons. A nice touch would be to add shredded Parmesan cheese.
The bocconcini and tomato salad with balsamic vinegar is excellent.
The Veal picata was excellent. Very few Italian restaurants get this dish right in Canada and this restaurant was one of them.
The Chicken Parm as a main course was very good.
The tour of Italy (chicken parm with 2 kinds of pasta)was good but with small portions.
The fettuccine tetrazzini was very good so was the seafood Linguini.
The Coquille st. Jacques was not really Italian food but superb.
The Tiramisu and milky way desert were very good.
The prices fit the menu well. Main courses $15 -22 includes soup or salad. Desert $7.

“Not disappointed ”
Reviewed 11 November 2013 via mobile

Ok. It's only Italian, (just kidden) it is quite good. I've been here a number of times and found the food very consistent the tortolini soup is very good only wish the bowl was bigger. They give you bread to soak up every drop.
Had the canntaloni, veal stuffed pasta tube. Tasty. Nicely spiced and covered in a spicy sauce
HOLLY, nice job. Great server very attentive and knowledgeable it would be a pleasure to have you as my server anytime.

“Very nice!”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

We were there as a group. The food was delicious! Fresh and served hot! The ambiance is wonderful! Not so fancy as to be uncomfortable, but fancy enough to make make your special occasion memorable. The service was wonderful too! It's expensive, but worth every dollar!!!
