“A little Italian gem in Swindon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

Came across it by accident while searching for a place to eat for the family. I am used to the usual restaurant chain experience and what a pleasant relief it was to discover Casa Paolo!
Obviously an old but tastefully converted pub. No issue on accommodating my wife and three young hungry boisterous children for lunch. We started with a large plate of Italian cold meats, which my wife declared where "to die for". Inevitably, the children had spaghetti bolognese to follow, which they pronounced " best ever!". My wife had a ricotta stuffed pan cakes and I had the mushroom risotto, both outstanding. Two beers and several soft drinks latter, the bill was surprisingly reasonable. Used as I am to having my children viewed as an unwelcome patrons, Casa Paolo was warm and friendly. On the outskirts of Swindon it has to be a diamond in the rough! Highly recommended!

“Don't miss out on Swindon's best kept secret”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

A group of five of us went to Casa Paolo on a Sunday night for the first time, and it definitely won't be the last time we go there.

All of the dishes we ordered were fantastic, especially the cheese crepes starters, the home-made lasagne and the chicken, ham and cheese.

The service was as good as the food, with the head chef warmly welcoming us and offering us his advice, and the waiter and waitress both being exceptionally helpful.

This place reminds me of the restaurants I visited during a holiday in Italy last year but has the convenience of being right on our doorstep.

Semplicemente fantastico... Grazie, Casa Paolo!

“Modern but homely Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

Good home cooked Italian food, with great meat and fish dishes. The chef came out to talk to us about the menu and explain the specials which was a really nice personal touch. The other wait staff were friendly and efficient without being obtrusive. The portions are generally large so be warned! But doggy bags are available.

Felt like a genuine family-run Italian restaurant. Excellent service and very friendly and great food. Loved it and would be regulars if we lived in Swindon!
