“Great food”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

The service here is excellent. Enjoyed a glass of wine at the bar whilst looking at the menu. The selection of specials were very impressive. Had an amazing sea bass with white wine and garlic sauce. Really enjoyed all of the food here.

“Very enjoyable again”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

Been here a few times and yet again a very enjoyable experience. Very attentive service by the owner who talks you through his menu and specials. For mains I had steak,which was the best I had sampled for some time. My wife had leg of lamb which was equally as good. A good selection of deserts followed and I opted for the cheese board which was excellent with a full explanation of types given by the owner.

“Fantastic all round experience - an absolute gem!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

It was our first time here for a friend's special birthday and we weren't disappointed! Right from the start the staff were so friendly and helpful and happy to go through the menu with us, as a couple of us had special dietary requirements. They couldn't do enough to help with this and adapted a couple of things on the menu to suit.
Decor is very nice and the table well spaced so we weren't too close to others.
We couldn't fault the meal at all - the quality was superb. My friend said it was the nicest lamb she has ever had!
Drinks were not overly expensive and the house wines were very good.
I would thoroughly recommend Casa Paolo and can't wait to go back! We live about 60 miles away but whenever we go stay with our friends we will be planning a visit here!

“Fantastic authentic Italian food!”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Another visit to this lovely restaurant and yet again it didn't disappoint. The staff are always so friendly and accommodating and the food genuinely Italian. The portions are always very generous without being over facing and the selection of fresh produce is always fantastic. Always love going to this place as it's not pretentious, the food is very well priced, service faultless and the prosecco cold!

“20th Wedding Anniversary”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

We tried to get a booking when this restaurant first opened, we have now been there (4 years later). Absolutely brilliant, we had made an early evening reservation earlier in the week and were warmly welcomed by the staff. After being shown to our table and having ordered drinks we made our choices. We both went for Rib steak and were asked if we wanted to share the steak, first time ever, the steak was brought out and we instantly said yes. It was huge, no way could we have managed it alone.

The meal was served, and boy, it was delicious. We had home made chicken pate starters followed by the steak, it was served with green beans (cooked in garlic) and roasted potatoes. Followed up by strawberries and ice cream / cream.

What a night, we would recommend this restaurant to any body wanting a special meal.

Staff were great, providing excellent smiling service! Will be going back.
