  • "Great, great food from appetizer to home made desserts. Service a little slow in the beginning, but mostly attentive thought out the meal, topped buy a visit from the charming owner table side for a chat. Space is small, and crowded with others who have found this gem, but overall excellent"

  • "My wife and I have dined at Po Le twice in the last 2 weeks and we think the food is outstanding. The Chef had been at a very upscale Italian restaurant in the same neighborhood as his current place so he has attracted many of his old patrons. We have recommended Po Le to many friends and we'll return many times."

  • "Had lunch at this BYOB. Plenty of variety on the menu and the specials were just as abundant. Grilled calamari was cooked to perfection, best I have eaten. Had soft shell crab on bed of fennel and again cooked perfectly. Friend said she enjoyed the chicken piccata just as much. Was full but wanted to get a look at the desserts - handmade down to the dough! Too many to try but will go back to taste every last one! Had the raspberry torte that was overloaded with plump, red, juicy raspberries. Crust was light and not too buttery tricking you into thinking you chose the healthy indulgence. Friend had the apple something -wish I could remember; it, too, was light, flaky, just enough sweetness and well complemented with gelato. Will return!!!"

  • "I can't seem to go to PoLe and not order the calamari and the pasta with duck because it's so good. I was glad that my dad tried the octopus and mom tried the figs wrapped in prosciutto. I plan to have both next visit! EVERYTHING was delicious and the soft shells looked very good but, unfortunately, dad finished them without offering me a taste!"

  • "Outstanding from start to finish. Wonderful food, the regular menu and the daily specials ( unlike most resturants) are both excellent. Plus it is BYOB.It is open for lunch and dinner. Servers are welcoming and caring. Desserts are homemade and save room, you will not be disappointed. Owner /bchef Po Le takes great pride in his Resturant .He usually comes out of the kitchen and makes the rounds to be sure you are enjoying yourselves. This is a ten! All Niall this is"

  • "Having read all the glowing reviews we expected great things. Po Le is basically in our backyard and it would have been nice to have something relaible to frequent..but for us it did not live up to all the hype. Mediocre food, amateurish service just didn't do it for us. Resturant was packed..took us 15 mins to get bread when the table next to us got it in 15 seconds, but after 10 minutes they had to ask for menus. Pasta bolgonese didn't offer any complexity or marriage of flavors that a good bolognese often does. Seafood special was anything but..shrimp, egg noodles, spinach, a few tomatoes, all in a garlic white wine sauce for $28..c'mon. Sorry to say as much as I wanted to like Po Le I really didn't."

  • "We had tried Po Le the first week it opened and found it rather disorganized and the food just OK. Then we forgot about it for a while and when I was searching Open Table one night, I saw it on the list and decided to try it again. We were so pleasantly surprised with everything, from the gracious greeting that we received to the delicious and beautifully presented food. This will definitely be a go to favorite of ours from now on."

  • "This restaurant is a little gem. The food and service are wonderful. My wife and I plan to dine there every week. It's a byob, but still worth a try. We have had the same waiter Patrick, both times we dined there and his service is excellent. San Marco food at a significant discount."

  • "This is perfection! Wonderful food, great service , very warm, welcoming. Owner, chef Po Le will greet you ! You will enjoy everything on the menu. Best veal chop, fabulous fishes, ravioli unlike any eaten elsewhere( full of real seafood) topped with shrimp, scallops, baby lobster tail I could go on and on. Basically everything is fabulous. To top it off, marvelous desserts and it is BYOB! "

  • "From the moment you walk in, you feel like you'll be in for a great experience! Polished Servers, Eduardo and Pat are very welcoming and are appropriately attentive. The menu has many options along with daily specials-something for everybody. The food has complex flavors from start to finish. Timing between courses were not rushed. Our table had a wonderful experience! Our table would recommend that the kitchen be more aware of food/bev temp. (to be hotter) "

  • "Had a girl's night out - Po Le's is a BYOB and the food is fantastic. Highly recommend the seafood linguine - the smaller portion is a good size portion - save some of the bread they give you to dip up all of the white wine garlic sauce! Definitely a neighborhood gem. Very busy on the weekends. We went on a Tuesday night and was surprised how many others were dining out that night. Also save room for dessert. Crème brulee and the raspberry tort are so good."
