“Great Menu for carnivores, vegetarians. and garlic lovers”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

There are great choices for all tastes and it all tastes delicious. We ate there twice and saw many more interesting things to sample. This is my favorite restaurant. The only issue is the noise level gets so loud that we had to shout at each other. Never mind, I will go back again and again. Be sure to get reservations.

“Double Winner”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

This was the best we tried in Highlands, went back a second time.
Tania was the wait person and she was great. Had the arugula salad, salmon, ravioli di astice, snapper, soup of the day and great bread pudding for dessert. VERY good selection of wines.
Has been in Highlands for 30+ years and reservations are a must.

“Can't wait to go back”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

We have been dining at Paoletti's for 11 years. The people and the food are all outstanding. If you can eat at the bar with Ryan it is always fun and make sure you meet Julio. He knows wine and is a great host. You won't be disappointed.

“Always Spot On!”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Paoletti's is one of our favorites in Highlands and really most anywhere! We have grown to expect amazing food and great service and once again they did not disappoint. The trout was absolutely delicious and my father declared the spaghetti the best ever! Thanks for another great evening!
