SquareMeal Review of Da Paolo

Bronze Award

With countless black-and-white photos lining the walls and a red rose on every table, Da Paolo is an Italian restaurant from a generation gone by. Celebrating its 25th birthday in 2015, it still follows the old ways – serving up generous helpings of time-honoured and fairly priced trattoria food to a regular stream of tourists and budget-conscious workers. Keep it simple with calamari fritti followed by a plate of piping-hot lasagne or take a punt on something slightly less predictable – perhaps grilled Italian sausage with Pecorino, fresh crab ravioli with asparagus or chicken breast with lemon sauce, garlic and thyme, followed by Sicilian lemon cheesecake. Meanwhile, if it’s a sunny day and you’re just after a glass of Prosecco and some grissini, the alfresco tables on pedestrian-only Charlotte Place are hard to beat.

A great little restaurant

This was not my 1st visit to Da Paolo and I'm sure it won't be my last. The food is good , lovely service and ambince. 

It's perfect for dinner with friends , as it was this time, or work collagues. One of those restaurants that you can consider for most occasions.
